I didn't realize before I got their email today- that GBH had a holiday auction. We participated in their summer auction and got coupons to a number of our fav spots and places well reviewed on CH. This current list of options has even better choices I think. And because it has a number of CH favs , I thought you might like to know about it. Through the WGBH Holiday auction you can both eat at a fav restnt, help GBH and sometimes get a good deal doing it.
I know many of you have this all figured out, but just as a point of sharing, the way we consider these auction bids is that, after finding an option for a restaurant we frequent, or have wanted to try, we bid figuring that if we end up bidding above the stated value of the offer (which does not always happen; often the items go for below their value) - that is our gift to GBH. In other words, we would have spent that amount eating there anyway, so whatever more the coupon costs us, that's what we're willing to donate to GBH.In actuality, of course, GBH gets it all, which is great for them.
When you go to this link, click on Browse and then Restaurants for the full list of 60+ spots.
Good luck everybody. Oh, this auction only goes another 12 days or so.
