A fun night at Outback!

As followers of this page know when it was announced that the Iowa Hawkeyes would play in the 2014 Outback Bowl I started an internet campaign to get a free Bloomin’ Onion. Why? Because I am both an Iowa alumni and a 4th generation onion farmer.


After a brief intense period on Twitter and this blog Outback not only graciously granted my request (and followed me on Twitter)


Outback also sent me additional Bloomin’ Onion certificates to give away on my blog. The first went to my dad:


But what to do with the rest …?

Well, I then created the Great Muckville Blog Free Bloomin’ Onion Essay Contest!


And we have had two winners so far!



Well, last night Eve, Caleb and Jonah and I went to our local Outback Restaurant in Middletown, New York, to redeem and enjoy our free Bloomin’ Onion certificate!

And enjoy we did … see the photos below! And I still have a couple of free certificates left so I urge any and all to enter the Great Muckville Blog Free Bloomin’ Onion Essay Contest!

And once again … THANK YOU OUTBACK!
