What Food Pairs with Scotch Whisky? At Chicago’s SideDoor, Lots!

It doesn’t seem that Scotch whisky would be a great pairing with food: the spirit is big, sometimes smoky and seems like it could steamroll all but the most powerful flavors. But you might be surprised how well Scotch can pair with foods. We were eager to try pairing Scotch whisky with Scottish-type food It […]

Shaw's Celebrates 30 Years With #Shellfies

In honor of Shaw's Crab House's 30th anniversary this year (whoa), the nautical mainstay is celebrating in the most apropos way: with #shellfies. That's right, selfies with shellfish. Duh. Seeing as this year is also the year the words "selfie" and "hashtag" were added to Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, the occasion could not be more apt. Without further ado, the Shaw's Crab House "Show Us Your #Shellfie" campaign: SEE SHAW"S VIDEO

Shaw's Crab House
(Shaw's Crab House shellfish bounty)
 
The social media incentive/celebration is designed to get guests to document their dining experiences. The idea is pretty simple: as guests dine at either Shaw's locale (River North or Schaumburg), they can post their food photos to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the hashtag #Shellfie, tagging @Shellyfromshaws, and which location. When diners post their photos, they'll be automatically entered into a weekly contest, wherein the person with the most creative photo of the week wins a $50 Shaw's gift card. 
 
But that's not all! Each weekly winner will be entered into a Grand Prize contest, with the final victor announced on September 5. The prize? A $1,000 gift certificate and two VIP passes to this year's 26th Annual Oyster Fest. Basically, you'll get to eat all the shellfish forever. 

The contest kicks off July 1 and runs through the end of August.
