Christmas is still over a week away and that means you’ve been gorging on an egregious amount of holiday cookies, but it’s also the time of year where judgement comes down from the top. Santa is dishing out his annual Nice and Naughty Lists (with our help) and if you land on his good side, you could be in line for not only holiday bragging rights, but also some sweet, sweet prizes.
With the craziest shopping days of the year come and gone, we shift our focus on something very near and dear to our hearts. Today, we celebrate Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving that kicks off the charitable season. Coming on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there is no better time to look past the material items and focus in on those in need. Therefore, EatStreet will be donating $1,000 to the Dane County Humane Society which will benefit animals in need of care and medical resources.
This time of year is one where people think about what kinds of things they are most thankful for as well as the people in their lives that they couldn’t live without. We took this as an opportunity for people to express their gratitude to important people in their lives and why they deserve some EatStreet cash this holiday season. We started that last week and have received hundreds of great entries on incredible people around the country and today we are announcing the grand prize winner as well as some other touching stories.

You think you’re on your way home but your eyes have been drawn to your bundle of confectionary treasure. Before you know it, you’ve found yourself in a part of town you don’t recognize and the sun has long set. The only thing you can see is a thick woodsy area. But off in the distance, through the trees is a solemn, dark house.
You convinced yourself that this time would be different. This time you were going to successfully make a meal. But before you knew it, the smoke detectors were loudly blaring down a horrifying shriek proclaiming your complete culinary collapse. The kitchen and your ambitious cooking aspirations were soon engulfed in flames. You managed to put out the fire only to find when the smoke cleared, charred remnants of a once promising dinner were all that remained. Don’t let this happen to you. Continue Reading
Food is something that relates to all of our emotions. Whether you’re celebrating the happiest of birthdays, crying after you just bombed a test, or angry because someone told you that you shouldn’t eat pizza for dinner every day this week, food always has your back.
Sometimes it feels like everyone has forgotten about me. Seems like not too long ago I was a celebrated and permanent fixture of people’s dinner time plans, but I have been left behind and replaced. However, today I plan on changing that. Today is my day. Today is Cheeseburger Day.
Our favorite athletes have returned to the gridiron, which officially kicks off the fall season.
