National High Five Day! April 21st!

Holy toledo!  National Five Day is going to be here front and center on Thursday!!  What could be better than hearing that bright smack and letting your fellow New Yorker that you think they’re real boss.

It won’t be the warmest day of the week, but it’ll be the sunniest and right after isolated thunderstorms.  So that’s even more reason to celebrate!  And to give you some added motivation – our Rickshaw Trucks will be offering one free side per customer with every enthusiastic high five!

It's the simple things in life like HIGH FIVES that make the world go round!

Don’t forget to keep sending us photos of you, your friends or anyone around our truck for a chance to win free lunch!  Confused about what we’re talking about?  Check our last post out!!

What a sexy truck! Id totally take it out to a nice seafood dinner.

Hello dumplings lovers!!  Hope you had a lovely weekend..  Even though Saturday was a tad moist, yesterday was super fantastic!  Our truck was giving away free dumplings at the big HRC event.

So like we mentioned last week, we’re going to do a contest every week for user photos or video.  We get so many great shots of people eating dumplings and having a great time around the truck – why not reward you guys for it!!

Simple directions:

1.) Send us photo at truck@rickshawdumplings.com OR share to our twitter: @rickshawtruck and tell us where you took the shot.

2.) We’ll reply with how awesome you are.

3.) We circle some people in the photo, they may be you, your friends or strangers!

4.) The people in the photo that have been circled will have a week to show themselves and get free dumplings and a side at the location they were shot at!

Easy right? So remember to check the blog every week to see if you got circled.  Who knows, maybe you were in the background of someones shot!!

And now without further ado – this weeks winners!!

Dumpling Truck Sched for April 11th to the 17th!

April 11, 2011

Dumplings all over NYC!

WHAT A CRAZY WEEKEND!  NYC you showed us so much dumpling love – from the crazy Hell’s Kitchen Flea to an awesome day at Tavern on the Green!!

This week we’re going to try something new.  We love getting photos of the truck!  Apparently loving dumplings also means you’re a great photographer.  You guys are so talented!  So every Monday we’ll post a new picture down below and circle one person in the photo.  That person has the chance to email/twitter us (thor@rickshawdumplings.com or kenny@rickshawdumplings.com) and get a free order of dumplings the next time they visit the store or truck!  But we can’t do this without you guys, obviously..  So take photos of yourself, coworkers, friends or even babies around the truck stuffing your face with dumplings or even standing in line!  We’ll post your picture and circle a few winners a week.  Remember to check back every Monday – you never know if you were in the background of someone else’s photo and won steamy goodness.

This weeks winner:

 

Know this guy? If so, let him know he just won some DUMPLINGS!!!
