Charles Kush Wins 2nd Place in Charlie Brown’s Pepsi Proud SweepSTEAKS

One of my frequent restaurants is Charlie Brown’s. My favorite thing about Charlie Brown’s is their famous fresh Farmer’s Market Salad Bar™. It’s definitely one of the best salad bars of any restaurant around.

Imagine my surprise when I was recently notified that I won 2nd place in Charlie Brown’s Pepsi Proud SweepSTEAKS – free Charlie Brown’s for a year! I picked up my prize and had a photo taken with the staff at the Scotch Plains, NJ restaurant. The manager and staff were very pleasant and congratulatory.

It pays to take a minute to enter those sweepstakes. You could be the next winner!

Thanks Charlie Brown’s and Pepsi!
