In the news business, two of the best words you can use in a headline to attract attention are "win" and "free."
Now, because of an offer to Posse blog readers from FoodyDirect, an online food marketplace, we can add two more: "Texas" and "barbecue."
Win free Texas barbecue from either Snow's BBQ in Lexington, Kreuz Market in Lockhart or Black's Barbecue in Lockhart. The food, depending upon the joint selected, is valued at as much as $110. It will be shipped directly to you.
You can qualify for a chance to win by clicking on the FoodyDirect box at the top right of this page or going directly to FoodyDirect's sign-up page. The offer ends May 3 when a winner will be randomly selected.
FoodyDirect is based in Menlo Park, Calif., and offers food from restaurants and specialty shops around the country, including the three top Texas barbecue joints above.
One of the principals of FoodyDirect, which received venture funding last year, is Brad Koenig, one of Silicon Valley's top investment bankers during the early years of the Web. He backed Yahoo's public stock offering.
