New Zealand Menu: Try it out, and be entered to win HUGE (plus a giveaway)

Have you heard of McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant? I was just recently introduced to them. I went to their site and found that there are three restaurants located in my state! I am anxious to go there with my husband for a date! I am really excited to get there soon, because they have an amazing opportunity for their guests to taste New Zealand from their special menu developed in partnership with New Zealand Trade & Enterprise.
McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurants is also hosting a New Zealand Sweepstakes, with a grand prize trip for two (2) to New Zealand, including airfare and six night hotel accommodations! I would totally do cartwheels over this if I was so lucky to win that prize! Could you imagine going to New Zealand, with it all being paid for (minus meals and other miscellaneous). I would be thrilled, to say the least!
Plus, each individual McCormick & Schmick’s restaurant location will award a random winner with a $50 Icebreaker gift certificate. How cool is that? Enter the sweepstakes at any McCormick & Schmick’s restaurant location or at McCormick&Schmick's.com- but don’t wait, this promotion ends February 27, 2010!
With the economy so tight for extra spending, and being extra frugal with our pocketbooks, McCormick & Schmick's offers a way for us to sample a taste of New Zealand in our own locations. Convenient and a bit more affordable.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO WIN?
I have the opportunity to host a giveaway for a $25 gift certificate for McCormick & Schmick's for my readers to enter to win. How awesome is that? A fun place to go check out, fine dining, a "date night" and some spending money for your bill. Can't pass up that deal!
This contest is open for those in the United States, for non-bloggers and bloggers. Contest ends February 12th, 2010.
To enter: Go to the McCormick & Schmick's website and look through their dinner or lunch menu. Find an item that sounds good to you and let me know about it in the comments.
**For extra chances you can: blog this contest, add my button to your site, subscribe to my blog, twitter and/or become a fan on facebook, and/or visit everyday and add another friendly comment about something else you found on the menu. Lots of chances to win! Don't forget to put the extra comments for the "extra" work. Good luck!**

They've got a mouthwatering menu at our local M&S. Just looking at it made me soooo hungry:
I wanted to order the Kobe Beef Carpaccio (appetizer) and then move on to the Jumbo Scallops New Hampshire (with pearl pasta and wild mushrooms - YUMMO!)
