Last Minute Plans: Dine For Free At Mercadito Tonight

By Anthony Todd in Food on Feb 29, 2012 5:40PM

2012_2_29_Mercadito.png Mercadito is celebrating the 29th of February, and you could win a free dinner. Mercadito's "Lucky Leap" will be giving a free dinner to one in ten visitors tonight, and with a little social media saavy, you can make your chances even better than that.

We're fans of the food at Mercadito (they are one of the few high-quality restaurants that have extended their restaurant week menu, by the way) and this is a great chance to capitalize on your extra day. Tonight, every 10th guest will get up to $50 of food and drink comped. Even better, if you tweet to tell them you're coming, your chances increase.

You can do pretty well for $50 at Mercadito. It's worth your money even if your meal doesn't get comped, but if you go, tweet @mercaditochi and use the hashtag #luckyleap. Think of us while you eat your free guacamole.

Mercadito is located at 108 W Kinzie Street.
