Things are really starting to rev up with our Hudson Valley Restaurant Week Scavenger Hunt! Our trusty RW enthusiast Bill Rubin went nuts on Instagram and Twitter last night, racking up an impressive 1,250 points with five instagram/Twitter pics and a video from Restaurant North last night.

That makes 1,250 points, and puts Bill in the lead. (Why are we not surprised by this!? :-))

Lynn Farrell left a comment on our Facebook page: “Last night I had a wonderful dinner at Tombolinos in Yonkers. My friends and I shared a bottle of Millbrook Pinot Noir, which is from the Hudson Valley. No picture since the camera function in my camera didn’t work. But it should be noted that Tombolino’s featured the bottle at HVRW price.” 50 points.

Susan Reback Miles checked on our page as well, “Just enjoyed Restaurant Week @ Mima in Irvington NY. The meal was delicious (they should patent their meatball appetizer) and the selection was exceptional – highly recommended. Wine is essential!”

Rinku Bhattacharya enjoyed lunch and dinner out on the same day. She shared photos of her meals at both Sofrito and Moderne Barn. 100 points.
