It's been an amazing five weeks of food at the Red Frog in the Czech Village, but it's time for us to move on to a new restaurant!

Now that June has finally arrived, we are excited to announce that we are headed to another local restaurant that we have never visited for Listener Lunch before... Goldfinch Tap + Eatery!

Located at 740 10th Street in Uptown Marion, Goldfinch first opened its doors back in 2019. According to the official website, it's a "contemporary American restaurant and patio in the heart of Uptown Marion. Goldfinch features Iowa and Midwest classics from a scratch kitchen. Fresh craft cocktails and 16 rotating taps make it a perfect spot for any occasion!" They serve lunch and dinner daily, as well as brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

Both Brain and I have eaten at Goldfinch on our own, but this will be the first time we get to go for Listener Lunch. That means we will be able to try a whole bunch of their delicious menu items throughout the month! Just look at some of these amazing photos from their Facebook page:

If you and six of your coworkers would like to join us at Goldfinch Tap + Eatery for Listener Lunch in June, we meet on Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m. If that works for your workplace, you can sign up to win HERE. Once you're entered, you're in for the whole year, so there's no need to sign up more than once. But, we do recommend getting your coworkers to sign up, too. It helps your odds of being chosen. We hope to see you soon!
