Dave Astor's got the story on the cartoon contest where the prize was $500, a trip to DC and lunch with Tom Toles. A longer article ran in the Eugene, OR Register-Guard. So will the meal be at the Post Pub, which does indeed have a fine burger (and fascinating waitresses*)?
Dave also tipped his hat to this site in "Editorial Cartoonist Chan Lowe Starts Doing Animations."
*I hit the Pub with some cartoonists after the AAEC Cartoonapalooza and they kept the kitchen open late for us. The waitress spoke at least 3 languages iirc.
