The Shark is giving away a $50 gift certificate for Pepper's Landing in Rochester each weekday next week!

You've known for a while now that you don't have to go to Brunswick, Maine to get the deliciousness of Pepper's Landing, right? I mean, the Rochester location has been there for over a year now and they have the most romantic food ever! Nothing says "I love you" more than a pretzel as big as your head ... and that's just to get your attention. The real main course is the seafood.

If you weren't aware that oysters are an aphrodisiac, just take your gift certificate to Pepper's and get yourself some for Valentine's Day. Don't even tell me that you've never had them, because they are delicious.  Oysters and a martini with a humungous pretzel is my idea of heaven.

If you're not near Pepper's in Rochester or Brunswick, you can always have the seafood shipped to you. I don't know how they do that sort of magic, but they do.  From the ocean, in to the package, to your front door. Magic.

Not only does Pepper's Landing have amazing seafood directly from the ocean, no kidding, but they are also super-nice native New Englanders. The restaurant is named after their grandfather, Pepper Martin.

Here's a little bit about Pepper Martin from their website:

OUR GRANDFATHER WAS THE KIND OF MAN WHO LEFT PEOPLE SMILING, INSPIRED AND HOPEFUL. HE WAS ALWAYS SEEN AS A LARGER THAN LIFE INDIVIDUAL WITH ALL OF THE HUMBLENESS NEEDED TO BEFRIEND COUNTLESS INDIVIDUALS. PEPPER WAS AN ICON TO THOSE WHO KNEW HIM IN THE STATE OF MAINE—HE WAS TRULY A STAND-UP GUY. PEPPER LEFT US ALL WITH STORIES OF HIS GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENTS, ALL OF WHICH CONJURE UP A DREAM LIKE VISION OF GOOD OLD FASHIONED MAINE LIVING. PEPPER WAS A CRAFTSMAN, HUNTER, FISHERMAN, BREWER, WATER SKIING LEGEND AND AN AVID BOXER TO NAME A FEW THINGS HE WAS KNOWN FOR.

Even if you don't win this gift certificate, just try Pepper's sometime. You're gonna love it and I'd really love it if you went in and found Ian and said, "Sarah says, 'GET IN MY BELLAH!!!'"

All you have to do to win is fill out this form. Each day next week, we'll pull a winner and announce it on the Shark Morning Show.

Good luck!
