Kris who was the only reader to choose Adour by Alain Ducasse at the St. Regis.

“I’m going with Adour because it’s one of the 3 listed as ‘Top Class’… TPG strikes me as the type to enjoy ‘the finer things’ in life :)”

Well, I do certainly like the finer things in life, but I chose Adour primarily because I can also earn Starwood Preferred Guest points for the dine! My name is The Points Guy after-all and I love a good triple dip. I’ll get my British Airways points for using my BA Visa, the $50 statement credit for the Michelin promo and then Starwood points since the St. Regis is a Starwood hotel and they allow you to earn points for dines, even if you aren’t staying at the hotel. For more info on getting points for hotel dines, check out this post.

But wait – there’s also a second winner.

Sally Lee a.k.a editorladySally tweeted me with an offer I couldn’t refuse:

 “@thepointsguy If we eat at Eleven Madison, I’ll donate the cost of my dinner to famine relief in Somalia #dinewithTPG.”
How could I turn that down, especially since Sally is the editor of Ladies Home Journal?!
So Sally and Kris – I’ll be reaching out to you to get dates on the calendar. I’m very much looking forward to both experiences (and the bounty of points I’ll get when all is said and done)!
