April Mystery Giveaway with Dinner at Ryan's, HomeTown and Old Country Buffet

Disclosure: I received the following products to facilitate this review.  As always all opinions are 100% my own.

It's time to gather your honey bunnies up and hop on over to Ryan's, HomeTown Buffet, or Old Country Buffet for a family gathering around the dinner table. Throughout the month of April, the restaurants have partnered with Nancy Drew Diaries and Hardy Boys Adventures to celebrate the relaunch of the classic mystery book series. The books you may remember loving in your childhood can now be read with your own kids with a new look and suspenseful storylines.
As parents and former kids we all know the tradition of filling those Easter baskets full of candy and sugar overload goodness.  But have you ever thought about putting a book in their baskets.  After a busy day of hunting Easter eggs is over, you can calm that sugar rush down by delving into an exciting mystery novel.
One lucky  Cotton Pickin Cute winner will receive the Nancy Drew Diaries Curse of the Arctic Star book and the Hardy Boys Adventure Secret of the Red Arrow book, plus a family four pack of meal passes to Ryan’s, HomeTown Buffet and Old Country Buffet. The total value of each prize pack is $60.00.  Keep reading to learn more.

Neil and I really enjoy going to Ryan's to eat.  We both love buffets because of the large selection of foods to choose from.  Whether I'm eating at home or in a restaurant, I just like a little bit of this and that, I'm not big on stuffing on just one thing.  That's why I really enjoy Ryan's.  I get a spoonful of this, a piece of that.  Believe me, I'm a happy camper when I leave.  Going out to eat can be very expensive when you include the kids.  Going to Ryans is much easier on the wallet.  And when Ty was a kid, we ate at Ryan's a lot because we knew there would always be something that he'd enjoy eating as much as we would, and it was affordable!
The restaurants are celebrating Easter in a big way this year! In addition to serving traditional Easter ham, delicious prime rib and special Easter desserts at dinner from Friday, April 18 to Sunday, April 20, the first 50 children each night for dinner will receive a surprise gift. Parents will be treated to a Two Can Dine for $15.99 coupon (valid with two beverage purchases) that is redeemable from April 21 to May 2.
