Tweet 4 a Table

tweet4atable (17)

My parents came down to visit this weekend which always begs the question, what the hell do I do to entertain them? 

I could pretend to want to go round all the touristy things with them, but then that would be a big pretence. So instead I decided to show them the real me- one big hungry foodie.

The Co-op have literally had a stroke of genius when it comes to their marketing.

They are running something called Tweet 4 a Table currently all over the country, where by tweeting at the dedicated account with your reason why you should be chosen, you can get a free lunch for you and your friends.

All the food served is from the Co-ops own summer range, meaning its something you can easily recreate at home- pretty genius eh?

With a little pop up cafe in Brick Lane, I got to show them the hipster side of London (no they hadn't a clue what a hipster was) before settling down in surprisingly sunny outside for a spot of good old summer BBQ food.

All sounding ridiculously dirty, we were all reduced to munching on the cardboard signs to keep hunger at bay whilst we waited.

Luckily a bowl of naughty nachos arrived just in time.

Swiftly followed by the real deal. 

We all went for dogs- sorry dawwwwgs. Although I think mine won-

A utter filthy mess of pulled pork, BBQ sauce, cheese and onion rings. And for good measure- some chilli cheese fries. You know because on its own that dawwwwg isn't enough. Obviously.

Although Nessa's did come close- I mean nacho hot dogs. Got to give them some credit for that genius move.

After we had chowed down on what was a pretty awesome meal, we took the edge off with something sweet from the co-ops new mini dessert range.

At the end of the meal we were given this- but fear not- its not a bill as the entire thing is free!

No its how much it would cost to make your meal at home for one person. £4.99 for that? You'd pay over double at these cool- hipster burger joints eh?

Fancy a free meal too? Then get you fingers out and get tweeting! For once tweeting has a purpose other than to view Kim K's Selfies.
