Natasha Liberman, founder of a la card, has had quite a nice week and we're not sure what excites her more: cards or oversized heads.
Last week she announced the 2011 version of her wildly poplar restaurant discount deck with 14 new additions, including Boka, Arami, Chizakaya, Ruxbin, Kith & Kin, Balsan and the Butcher & Larder, the forthcoming butcher shop from former Mado chefs Rob & Allie Levitt.
The deck, which offers nice discounts at some of Chicago's top restaurants, is available for pre-order now for $30 and you can even get a complimentary 2010 deck valid for the rest of the year.
But possibly more exciting is that Liberman was the first responder to Grant Achatz's Monday Twitter contest to get the first pic posted of his (somewhat bloated and creepy) caricature in the Barneys New York window. Because she was the first to get it up on the Next Restaurant Facebook page, she won two free tickets to dinner during the opening week of Next.
