Economic Stimulus Giveaway

This month we were going to have some very tough (almost impossible) trivia questions to answer in order to participate in the giveaway, but since it is the new year and we all have been hearing about, or for most, experiencing this pinching economy, we thought we would let ya off easy.
So let's celebrate the new year! Serac wants to do its part to boost the economy in these hard times with a drawing for a $50.00 gift certificate to one winner's favorite restaurant.
