Did You Know $25 Can Buy 4.17 Bloomin Onions?


Good news for those of you still down in the doldrums about effing up your NCAA pools (aside: I don’t care if you did pick all four number one seeds, that was a wuss move and you don’t deserve any credit). But my point is, you have another chance to be a winner, because we’re still looking for that lucky reader who’s gonna get a free gift certificate to the Outback Steakhouse worth $25.

All you gotta do is be the magical 50th person to sign up for The Weekly Simmer, our email newsletter bringing you ES highlights, updates, bonus features, and much more (OK, maybe not that much more).

No cheating of course, but let’s just say we’re getting veeeeerrrry close to a winner.

Get the Weekly Simmer Email

PS – Here’s a fun fact from the OS: Actor Kevin Costner is such a fan of Outback and the Bloomin’ Onion that he put the Outback Steakhouse Airship in his upcoming Disney Touchstone movie, “Swing Vote.”

OK, fine. Maybe that wasn’t that fun. Just sign up for the email. Please.

    I already signed up, despite the fact that I knew that would make me the sucker (of course I already benefited from one mind blowing installment of the weekly simmer). I suggest that you overcome the strategic dilemma people face (that they need to hold off on signing up to increase their chances of being #50) by pointing out that there are 45 people signed up already! So hurry, hurry!

    who you calling a wuss?! I am slated to be a winner (3rd place, at least) and that’s more than I can say for you:)

    I stand by my statement. I would rather be in last place than win by picking 4 number ones. wuss move.
