As you know, Scott Joseph's Orlando Restaurant Guide has a drawing almost every week for a gift certificate to a local restaurant. It's our way of saying thank you for being a reader.
This week's drawing, on Friday, will be a special one for a $100 certificate to the AAA 4 Diamond-rated Venetian Chop House at the Caribe Royale Hotel. This is one of Orlando's finest restaurants and we're pleased to have our friends at the Venetian make this offer.
A note to the winner: The certificate must be redeemed between October 1 and October 31, 2018.
As always, the winner's name will be selected at random from among the recipients of the SJO e-letter. If you're already on the list, you're already entered in this and all future drawings (unless you unsubscribe, of course).
If you're not signed up, send a text message with only SJO in the message field to the number 66866. We'll have you signed up right away. You may also click the link on the front page of ScottJosephOrlando.com to sign up directly.
And here's something new. If you're a restaurateur, add your name to the Restaurant List. You'll get special notices, such as calls to be included in holiday dining lists. And don't worry, you'll still be included in the drawings.
The code for restaurateurs to text is SJC to 66866. (Sorry, there currently isn't a direct link to sign up for the Restaurant List.)
The drawing will take place Friday evening, so be sure to sign up before then.
Venetian Chop House is at the Caribe Royale, 8101 World Center Drive, Orlando. It's open for dinner Monday through Saturday.
