Jeremy Lin has hit the nation by storm, and already he is spawning food named after him. Here in Hawaii, popular local drive in L & L will offer up some free food in honor of Jeremy Lin. The drive in is going Linsane from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday, when it will hand out free “Lin-Katsu” T-shirts to the first 100 customers who purchase the chain’s new Lin-Katsu chicken dish at its Keeaumoku Street restaurant.
The special plate, which is named in honor of New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin, features a new sweet and spicy Asian sauce. The Lin-Katsu plate, priced from $7.95 to $9.50, also will be available at L&L’s Kahala and Airport locations starting Friday, the company announced today. However, if you are one of the lucky ones, then you can sample the new dish two days early for free.
Fans will also get a chance to win a trip to see Lin play in Orlando, Fla., against the Magic on April 5. Just guess how many points, assists, rebounds and turnovers Lin will have in the Knicks March 21 game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Entry forms are available on the L&L website, hawaiianbarbecue.com, and at participating restaurant locations. Maximum five entries per person. The deadline to enter is March 19.
The winner will roundtrip air tickets for two to Orlando, two tickets to the game and a three-night hotel stay.
There is a lot going on with this, so be sure to get down there early if you want to get a plate on Lin Katsu for free. Have some food, enter the contest, and just have a good time.
