Event recap & giveaway: Seamless Web
So this is a little late… Last week, Seamless Web and Boston Food Bloggers hosted a happy hour at Landsdowne Pub, a welcome opportunity as I love the opportunity to see/meet bloggers and tweeters I follow in person. I met up with Kathy, Megan, and Nicole at Kenmore and we headed over.
It was a great event with an open bar and some great pub food. I could not get enough of the sliders or the potato skins… I ended up eating way too much. To read Rachel’s recap (and see her far lovelier photos) go here.
My favorite thing though was this baby: A magic 8 ball that tells you what you want to eat!
Anyway, the event was also an opportunity to learn about Seamless Web, which lets you order delivery or takeout from local restaurants. I’m not entirely sure why they call themselves Seamless Web, as the name doesn’t really connote food to me… I get the idea of the process being seamless, but to me Seamless Web brings to mind data storage or email distribution, not take out Indian. But whatever, it’s been an average of 15 degrees out and the snow is up to my knees, I can jump on the bandwagon when it comes to food ordering.
You can go onto their site, type in your address and see a list of places in your area that you can order from. For me, it was a lot of ethnic and pizza places. The site will also tell you the price range of the place, estimated wait times for a meal and what their minimum order is ($10 to $35 for my neighborhood). As more people start using the site, it will also allow you to leave/see feedback on the restaurant.
I left the event with a $20 Seamless Web gift card, which I’ve decided to give to one of my readers. For a chance to win, all you have to do is comment below. Extra entries if you tweet this.. limit two entries per person. Entries must be received by Thursday at noon. Winner will be announced Friday.
