In early March, the Goffstown Economic Development Council announced a fun new promotion called Goffstown Restaurant Bingo. They have provided Bingo cards at participating Goffstown restaurants, with the objective of customers filling in their cards with a stamp after a $10 purchase at each place. Completed entries can be turned in for prize drawings! Weekly prizes will be drawn during the game period, and a final grand prize will be drawn at the very end.
What a wonderful way to support our Goffstown restaurants! And of course non residents can participate as well. This promotion is getting noticed outside the Goffstown community, with nods from WMUR and WOKQ.
With my hungry family, completing at least one row on the board should not be a problem at all. In this post you’ll be able to see the beautiful food offered by Goffstown restaurants when you get your BINGO stamps.
And don’t forget: in addition to dining in or ordering takeout from your local restaurants, there are other small ways you can support them.
- Buy gift cards
- Leave a positive review on your favorite review site ( Google, Yelp, TripAdvisor, Facebook, etc)
- Use social media to brag to your friends–check in to a restaurant, take a selfie, or a picture of your food
- Engage with a restaurant on social media. Like and share their posts, follow their page, check in, comment, or tag a friend.
Now, for the food…
Putnam’s Waterview Restaurant
Our first Bingo stamp came from Putnam’s Waterview Restaurant. Our waitress mentioned that they’d given out so many Bingo cards that they had to go over to Sawyer’s to get some more. My son and I enjoyed a delicious lunch of fish & chips and a turkey club.
Tiffany’s Cafe & Catering
Our second stamp came from Tiffany’s Cafe and Catering in Pinardville. We enjoyed a late breakfast of eggs benedict and a BLT wrap! This was a new restaurant for us, so the promotion worked! We enjoyed visiting this little café that we’ve not been to before. I will be going back to try those reindeer hot dogs!
The New Wa Toy
Our third Bingo stamp was for takeout lunch from The New Wa Toy Chinese restaurant. Every time I’m at Hannaford around dinner time, I cannot stop thinking about the wonderful smells coming from the Wa Toy. We enjoyed our favorite General Gau’s and a pu pu platter.
Ubon Thai 2 Go
Still going strong on our quest to complete a Bingo row, and it’s not even April yet! Our fourth stamp came from Ubon Thai 2 Go which is one of our very favorites in Goffstown. It’s consistently delicious, fast, accurate, and beyond sparkling clean. Such a treat to have right here in Goffstown!
Pizza 911 Goffstown
Moving right along, we hit up Pizza 911 in Pinardville for a quick Saturday takeout lunch. Just a pepperoni pizza and some cheesy breadsticks hit the spot for my whole family. And I’ve almost got Bingo on my row! Just one more……
The Village Trestle
Lastly, our final stamp on this particular row came from The Village Trestle. Now we finally have BINGO! I’d heard great thing about the nachos at the Trestle, so that’s what I had. They were huge and loaded! We also had one of the specials for the day which was the grilled shrimp with chimmichurri sauce served with garlic bread, fries, and salad. Excellent lunch at The Trestle!
With that, my row on the Bingo card was completed, and I took it right over to Town Hall to turn it in. Wish me luck in the drawing tomorrow afternoon!
Update 5/14/21: I won one of the weekly drawings! How fun. I won a $25 gift certificate from a choice of Goffstown businesses.
