  1. Michael Scheetz says:

    Really? I’d gladly enter for a chance for free food and booze. What’s not to like?

    Besides, this blog and the mug that writes it, are both pretty cool.

  2. MidoriMonsta says:

    awesome… count me in!

  3. adrienne a. says:

    Like I noted elsewhere, I really shouldn’t win this, as Jake is a friend. But I really want to win this so I can eat at Carlyle’s big kids table, I.e., the dining room.

  4. Vanessa says:

    I have no shame, I don’t want to eat at the big kids table, then I couldn’t talk to Jake!

  5. Kirsten (in MT) says:

    Pick me! Pick me! I will happily drive from Montana to Portland again.

  6. Camille says:

    If I win, I promise to use it as an excuse to bring more people to visit Jacob when I’m in town!

  7. Bruce says:

    Pick me! Pick me!
    It will save me $50.00!

  8. Kayte CookWatts says:

    I really heart your cocktails. I would marry the Carlyle burger I could. And then have a torrid affair with the chopped salad on weekends.

  9. Trina says:

    Sure, I’m in! How many Curse of Scotlands (Curses of Scotland? not sure about the pluralizing here) can I get for $50?

  10. Rachel says:

    mmmm mmmm Carlyle

  11. mustangshellie says:

    Happy hour, $50 Carlye gift certificates…I’ve discovered nirvana.

  12. Andrea says:

    Great drinks and food. (Love the Cheese Plate!) Also the atmosphere – totally relaxed, but upscale, and chatting with Jacob always fun. Plus the bar is a twitter hot spot. Don’t come without your iphone to add twitter peeps.

  13. Tony Thomas says:

    Great idea, guys! ;)

  14. Mark says:

    These motherfuckers have erased my comments! I just called the PPD to complain and next I’m calling the phone companies who are in collusion on this. If I don’t win, there is going to be a personal investigation into this I promise you! I’ll call 60 Minutes and get Andy Rooney down here!

  15. Mark says:

    I look forward to visiting one of my favorite restaurants again soon… Cheers!
