Ok, so I was at a guy’s house (not on the first date). After suggesting Thai delivery, he spent the next 10 minutes yelling our orders into the phone. He must have said his credit card number 3 times. Not the best aphrodisiac.

The whole time, I couldn’t help thinking: This would be so much easier if we did this online!

Seamless Web lets you do just that. They cooperate with thousands of local restaurants so that you don’t have to bother picking up the phone (unless you want to use their mobile app). And it saves your info for quick ordering!

As if this service weren’t enticing enough, they’re going to be parking their More Eat truck at various locations around the city beginning on 10/18 to collect your old (and now, obsolete) take-out menus. In exchange, you’ll get a fortune cookie with a ‘lucky number’ that could win you huge prizes: an iPad, free lunch for a week, even free lunch for a year (a $5,475 value)!

Here’s the More Eat truck’s schedule:
October 18th – Union Square – 11:30am-7:30pm
October 19th – Columbus Circle – 11:30am-7:30pm
October 20th – Madison Square Park – 11:30am-7:30pm
October 21st – Lexington Avenue between 57th and 58th Street – 11:30am-7:30pm
October 22nd – Washington Square Park – 11:30am-7:30pm
October 23rd – Brooklyn Flea (Fort Greene) – 10:00am – 5:00pm
October 24th – Brooklyn Flea (One Hanson) – 10:00am – 5:00pm

Can’t make it? Don’t fret! They’re offering $10 off your order with the promo code ‘MOREEAT’ for first-time users.

But what will happen with all those menus? Local artist Kevin O’Callighan will use them as inspiration for two sculptures to be unveiled on 10/23 and 10/24 at the Brooklyn Flea. Additional prizes and discounts will be available at the unveiling events.
