Well, the day of reckoning has finally arrived. It’s been a painstaking process sifting through the thousands of entries, but sift I must, because I promised to announce a winner to our first annual final coloring contest. You see, we’re not like some of those other restaurants that promise a winner to their coloring contests, then don’t really pick one at all. I’m not mentioning any names, but you know who you are. So without further ado…
First off, some further ado. I’d like to thank all of the participants, and just so you know, you’re all winners to me, and you should be really proud of the work you did. It really gave Ted a boost to see the response to his drawing, and it gave him the extra love he needed when he had to put his guinea pig to sleep. Now, for the winners:
An honorable mention goes out to Chibbon Coholan for having the courage to bring Ted’s drawing to a tattoo artist and have it rendered on her back. The problem, however, is that I’m not sure who’s entering the contest: Chibbon? The tattoo artist? Or is it some kind of performance piece I’m not smart enough to understand. Either way, it’s good enough for a bottle of A Useful Sauce Indeed.
But today we have two grand prize winners: Riley and Caroline Noyes, who went above and beyond simple coloring and clearly pointed out the mnemonic devices buried deep in the layers of subtext, and for that they win a multi-course tasting menu for two at my restaurant. Heck, what preteen wouldn’t want that? Congratulations!
One final note. Riley and Caroline: I would encourage you next time you are on a long car ride in the back seat together to really engage in a debate about whose drawing is actually the better of the two. I mean, can there really be two winners?
