Orlando, Fla. (November 15, 2005) Which would you rather receive this holiday season – a sweater or a wonderful fresh lobster dinner? If you’re looking for something different to give family, friends or coworkers this holiday season, then Red Lobster suggests you consider sending fresh seafood direct from the coasts of New England.
At www.redlobster.com, Red Lobster offers an assortment of gift options that are not only perfect for seafood lovers, but can be sent right to that special someone’s door:
• Live Lobsters
Fresh lobsters weighing between 1.25- and 3-pounds are shipped overnight in insulated packages (prices range from $16 for a 1.25-pound lobster to $39 for a 3-pound lobster). Also available are lobster feasts that include either eight 1.25-pound lobsters ($119) or 20 1-pound lobsters ($249). These include enough lobster bibs and claw crackers for everyone!
• New England Lobster Bake
Send a complete New England Lobster Bake (starting at $75 for two people), which includes 1.25-pound live lobsters, fresh steamer clams or littlenecks (seasonal) and one stuffed quahog (a thick-shelled, edible clam) per person, as well as a reusable steamer pot, a placemat with instructions on how to eat lobster, claw crackers and picks, and bibs. Lobster bakes are available for two, four, six or eight people.
• Fresh Seafood
You don’t have to live on the ocean to enjoy fresh seafood. With a click of the mouse, you can send someone fresh, tender salmon fillets ($6/pound) and North Atlantic Sea Scallops, which includes approximately 10-15 scallops a pound that are out of the shell and shipped dry with no water added ($10.50/pound).
• Red Lobster Gift Card
Another way to treat your family or friends to a seafood meal is by giving them a Red Lobster gift card, which can be used at any Red Lobster or Darden Restaurant across North America. This great gift card is available in denominations from $5 to $250 and can be purchased in any Red Lobster restaurant, as well as on www.redlobster.com.
