    Ways to Make the Valentine’s Day Holiday Memorable

    MARYVILLE, Tenn. – February 1, 2017 – Ruby Tuesday announces a month-long “Sweet Sweeps” in February where five lucky sweepstakes entrants can win Free Ruby Tuesday for a Year. From February 1 through February 19, 2017, the Company is also offering special pricing on entrée add-ons like lobster tail and grilled shrimp, bottles of featured wine, and $15 bonus cards for every $50 in Ruby Tuesday gift cards purchased.

    On February 1, 2017, Ruby Tuesday is launching its “Sweet Sweeps,” with five prizes of Free Ruby Tuesday for a Year. No purchase is necessary to enter, however, entrants who dine at Ruby Tuesday and provide their check number(s) at RubyTuesday.com/Valentines or by mail can receive additional bonus entries. See Official Rules at RubyTuesday.com/Valentines for instructions, restrictions and prize information.

    From February 1 through February 19, to enhance Valentine’s Day dining experiences, Ruby Tuesday is also offering special prices on entrée additions, with savings available on both dine-in and TueGo orders. Guests can add lobster tail for only $5.99 or grilled shrimp for $3.99, which pair especially well with the restaurants’ steak entrée options. From February 10 through 19, guests can also enjoy crab cakes as an entrée add-on for only $3.99.

    To further complement Valentine’s Day celebrations, Ruby Tuesday is featuring bottles of award-winning Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc and Meiomi Pinot Noir. Consistently highly rated by Wine Spectator, Nobilo is a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that delivers juicy and expressive flavors like green apple, melon and lemon meringue. Meiomi Pinot Noir, which won a Gold Medal in the 2016 Sommelier Challenge at the International Wine and Spirits Competition, features flavors of jammy fruit mingled with vanilla, mocha and toasty oak notes.

    Finally, February 1 through 19, Ruby Tuesday will be offering a free $15 bonus card for every $50 in Ruby Tuesday gift cards purchased in-store (terms and restrictions apply). Guests can also purchase gift cards online from February 10 through 19 to receive the bonus cards, which are redeemable March 1 through April 11.
