BlackboardEats is a new kind of dining deal site that pairs top restaurant reviews (picked, vetted and written by food writers) with desirable deals — absolutely free. Instead of paying upfront for discounts at sub-par restaurants, you'll get access to deals without paying a penny and at places you actually like.
There’s no cost to sign up or to take advantage of the deal, and no penalty if you don’t redeem it. With BBE, all you need is a passcode and a palate to receive a couple of carefully selected emails a week.
This week, BlackboardEats hooks it up for subscribers with complementary servings of Allium's most raved-about dishes: Kevin Hickey's signature deconstructed Chicago-style hot dog, and a butterscotch milkshake you'll be thinking about long after the meal's over. And if you get today’s deal and refer a friend to BBE, you could experience Chef Kevin Hickey's menu for free by winning a dinner for two. Sign up for free now. >>
