Sprig & Sprout (2317 Wisconsin Ave.) is launching two Facebook-related drawings for free food and drink.

Starting this week, the Vietnamese restaurant will reimburse the lunch order of one customer every Tuesday between 11 am and 4 pm. On Tuesday mornings, Sprig & Sprout’s owners will post a random number on the restaurant’s Facebook page. When a customer’s order number matches that random number, the customer’s order (up to $20 worth) will be reimbursed. See the restaurant’s website for rules.

Along with that weekly lunch lottery, the restaurant is holding a monthly raffle for a gift certificate—and the more people enter, the bigger that certificate will be. To enter, post a photo of yourself eating at Sprig & Sprout on their Facebook page according to the contest rules.

Sprig & Sprout already hosts very popular tasting dinners that tend to sell out well in advance. The new contests are meant to engage customers in a more spontaneous way, says co-owner Jennifer Hoang. “We decided we wanted to be more interactive with our customers, plus have a little more fun on Facebook,” Hoang stated in a press release. “It makes eating here a bit more fun, and possibly rewarding.”
