Haven Giveaway!


If you haven't been to Haven Gastropub in Orange, it's quite possible you've been living under a rock. Haven’s “pub meets gourmet eats” concept has earned rave reviews locally, regionally and nationally, being named one of the country’s “Best New Gastropub” by Draft Magazine, which commended the restaurant for having “breathed new life into the old gastropub concept.” This week, some of our favorite restaurateurs, Partners Executive Chef Greg Daniels, Wil Dee and Ace Patel are offering a chance to win a $100 gift card to their restaurant in historic Old Towne Orange! To enter, email Gretchen at

This gift card is your ticket to experience the best craft beers flowing regularly on rotating taps, from breweries such as Russian River, Mikkeller, Brewdog, Stone, and The Bruery. If you like it in a bottle, Haven's got more than 100 to try! If specialty single-malt whiskeys, scotches and bourbons is your thing, they have more than 50 options to satisfy! Of course, if you're like us and love great wines, their worldly wine list, with nearly 50 wines by the glass, is killer!

We'll be pairing that with our favorite burger, the Haven Burger, piled high with roasted red bell peppers, wild arugula, pickled red onions and St. Agur blue cheese (and you know we'll ask for Chef Daniels' housemade ketchup on the side)!
