Our third year was a biggie - we've been walking (into a few new cities), talking (on national TV), and growing quickly (now with 1,200+ local restaurants). We couldn't have done it without you, and now it's time to celebrate! Open the app today to find a slice of our "birthday cake" and win $25.

We've hidden slices of cake in the app. Explore different restaurants, and a slice of "cake" will pop up to tell you how to claim your prize (hint: eat a restaurant that has a cake pop-up and leave a review!).*

Welcome Spotluck Washington Township

Spotluck-Washington-Township

We've broke ground in New Jersey! Across the river from Philly, Washington Township is a historic city that's been growing and thriving since the 1800s. Once home to over 200 farms and historical sites like Olde Stone House, local businesses have always been a crucial part of the economy here. Help us welcome this brand new Hub (and state!) by visiting these 10 delicious, new Spots:

Spotluck Comes to Downtown Leesburg

Welcome Spotluck Leesburg!

Spotluck has been growing and adding new neighborhoods throughout DC, and recently turned its attention to a downtown neighborhood outside the city walls.

Downtown Leesburg has a rich 257 year history, and we're excited to join this tight-knit community! Full of historic buildings, locally-owned shops and restaurants, and charming brick sidewalks, Downtown Leesburg is the quintessential downtown USA. It even was the secret home of Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and other important papers during the War of 1812!  

However, despite being part of the wealthiest county in the United States, the downtown area has been met with rising competition from chain restaurants and outlet shopping on the outskirts of town. It's contributed to a 30-35%  business downturn, according to Cajun Experience owner, Bryan Crosswhite. Today, we're thrilled to do our part to help drive business back to this local community! 

Help us welcome 13 restaurants to the Spotluck family:

Spotluck Wednesday: Cleveland Park

Rain, rain, go away. Don't come on Spotluck Wednesday! (we tried chanting it, but it didn't quite work out). 

Luckily, rain doesn't deter the Spotluck Team. Last week, we weathered the storm to bring another fun and exciting Spotluck Wednesday to Cleveland Park.  St. Arnold's Mussel Bar was the perfect host, providing delicious Belgian bites and refreshing beer.

On top of great free eats, thirst-quenching beer, and plenty of cool swag over at our prize table, each guest got to spin for a chance to win the Cleveland Park Grand Prize Giveaway. The Grand Prize included $200 in giftcards to all of our Cleveland Park spots- now that's eating good! 

Check out a quick video below to see what Spotluck Wednesdays are all about, and stay tuned for information on where out next Spotluck Wednesday will be!
