I guess I should have known better than to launch a contest on Friday, with only three days left in the official Restaurant Week. Lesson learned. So far I haven’t received enough entries to declare a winner. (The submissions are, shall we say, rather slapdash.) I know y’all can do better. So let’s extend the deadline until next Monday at noon.

Here’s the deal: Just tell me about your Restaurant Week experience, whether good, bad, or uglier than a pile of poutine.  E-mail your story to hungry@washingtoncitypaper.com. The best one will win a copy of Best Food Writing 2009. Really, it’s a nice book, well worth the 15 minutes you’ll spend writing about your Restaurant Week meal.

Speaking of Restaurant Week, some places refuse to let it go. Here’s a working list of restaurants continuing the promotion through this week and beyond.
