Great Barrington — The winner of the Edge’s 2018 fine dining drawing is no longer a mystery.
In a drawing held earlier this week, Egremont resident Marj Wexler emerged as the winner of the random drawing for a weekend getaway for two at the iconic Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge.
For a month from mid-January to mid-February, Edge readers could dine at one of 15 participating restaurants, ask their servers for an entry form and send the completed form to the Edge either by email or snail mail. Every time participants dined at one of those restaurants, they could send in a new entry. And there was no limit to the number of times they could enter–while supporting local restaurants at the same time.
Indeed, some contestants dined and entered the contest a few times. Wexler dined at South Egremont’s Old Mill restaurant, a Berkshire dining favorite for more than 35 years. Those who are looking to share Wexler’s experience, however, will have to wait: The Old Mill is currently closed for renovations and will reopen Thursday, March 8.
Wexler will spend a weekend for two at the Red Lion in either March or April. Wexler is a longtime resident of Egremont and is very active in town affairs. She is a member of the town’s technology committee, an associate member of its planning board, and chairs both the Egremont Green Committee and Democratic Town Committee.
The Berkshire Edge thanks the Red Lion Inn for making this prize available in order to support local restaurants. Here are the restaurants that participated in the promotion:
