Michelle Jones of Consuming Louisville and I want to give away some goodies.
We want to share this app with the world (well, the iPhone world, but Android development is in progress). Any time that I write a $10 Challenge that features a restaurant on Menu and Hours, Michelle will give away two free copies of the app (usually $2.99 in the iTunes Store) to readers who leave a comment on the $10 Challenge post.
The Bard’s Town, the most recent $10 Challenge contender, is featured on Menu and Hours. For a chance to win one of two free copies of Menu and Hours, answer the following Bard-themed question in the comments section of this post:
What is your favorite William Shakespeare play? (Or tell me why you don’t have a favorite Billy Shakes play.)
You have until Thursday to leave a comment. I’ll randomly select two names on Friday.

Michelle Jones, the woman behind the blog Consuming Louisville and Let Them Tweet Cake meet-ups, has launched her long-awaited, Louisville-restaurant-centric iPhone app, Menu and Hours. It’s “a beautiful, easy to use app with all the information you want about restaurants and none of the frustration of restaurant websites. No PDFs, no flash, just the food menus, operating hours, location and contact information for over 90 independent restaurants in the Louisville, Kentucky area,” according to the iTunes store.
