We at Short Order take a lot from the community. Now we want to give you something in return. But, not so fast. You are going to have to do something for us if you want to win a $50 gift card to China Grill.
We want to hear about your worst dining experience ever. You don't have to mention restaurant names, but make a compelling case for why we should feel so bad for you that we need to hand over this gift card to you.
Submit your horror dining stories in the comments below. Please make sure you enter a valid email address when posting (even as a guest), so we are able to reach you. You have until Monday, January, 24 at 5 p.m. to submit your entry. The winner will be announced the following Tuesday.
