10 Under $10 Lunch at McCormick & Schmicks and Gift-Card Giveaway!

McCormick and Schmicks is well known with my circle of frugal friends because of their
famous Happy Hour specials - between the 2.95 cheeseburger with fries and their trio of oyster shooters for around $5, it's definitely a wallet-friendly way to unwind after punching in the ole 9-to-5. And a great promo to get people in the door to check out the space.

Now M&S is introducing another option that's easy on the budget: the 10 under $10 lunch specials, where ten items are available for 7.95-9.95 each. As is the M&S's style, the menus will rotate seasonally and the selections vary between locations, but some locally available items include Oregon Bay shrimp mac 'n cheese, a gussied-up tuna melt with fresh ahi and albacore tuna and salmon skewers with jasmine rice and vegetables (and for the fish-wary, there's a variety of land meat and vegetarian items such as caprese sandwich w fresh mozz on foccacia bread and tri-tip and ground chuck beef chili.)

And as part of their 10 under $10 promotion, their PR folks teamed up with me to hold a giveaway of a $10 McCormick & Schmicks gift card, so you can have an opportunity to check out their lunch deals. To enter, simply comment and I'll draw the winner at random by midnight Friday. Good luck!

P.S. goes without saying, if your e-mail contact info isn't readily available (on your own blog or profile) do leave your addy in the comment too. You can even mangle it up - use (at) instead of @, for example - if you're scared of bots and more spam (Mmmm... spam...)

It's one of the places that has pretty good seafood, served in the traditional PNW style. I like that. Seeing as I'm a PNW fish snob.

I would love to be considered for the $10 gift card. I think it's great that the restaurant scene is realizing the economy has significantly impacted folks not on an expense account (as well as those with expense accounts). It would be great to see more restaurants offering BYOB on off days (say Sun - Tue).

I have a restaurant.com coupon for this place. Maybe this is a good time to use it?

I love their cheap happy hour, but I had no idea they had lunch specials that weren't horrifically high. Count me in!

Ahh... now I'm encouraged to dine at M&S for the first time. Salmon skewers sound really good right about now. I'm in for the drawing! You know how to reach me, HC!

Here is a comment. I might as well mention I've eaten at the one in Beverly Hills and in Dana Point. Family friends in Dana Point and it's the only place they want to eat at...such a far drive. And the St Regis is close too..the things i do for these people

mmm, I ate there at the Providence, RI location and it is so good! So glad we now have this restaurant in New England-and glad to see that they are also aware of the economy and providing us with great meals at great prices!
