2011 Dec 13 Win a Year of Discounts: The Little Gold Book
What is a Little Gold Book? Glad you asked. Not only will it make for a great Christmas present, but it also serves as a useful guide for navigating Beijing’s dining scene.
This year marks the release of the first edition of this compilation of vouchers, which offers first-rate discounts at over 70 restaurants in Beijing (including 50 percent off at Hatsune, a free glass of wine at SALT, and 2-for-1 cooking class deals at The Hutong). Founders Irena Desmond and Andrew Pratley – a brother-sister team from New Zealand – recruited the help of Michael Crain (of Chi Fan for Charity) to track down Beijing’s best eateries, so it’s safe to say you can think of this as your “little black book” to eating out around here.
Best of all, 30 percent of proceeds at most selling outlets go directly to charity. The book will be sold by participating NGOs (i.e. Beijing Huiling), as well as local restaurants and retailers. Or you can get it delivered straight to your door. Visit www.littlegoldbook.net for the full list of options.
And now, for the chance to win one yourself (value RMB 240), answer this question: What Little Gold Book participating restaurant is giving away a FREE Massaman Chicken Curry? (Hint: See www.littlegoldbook.net)
Email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. And look out for an interview with the founders in our upcoming January 2012 issue!
