    The person who guesses the correct date this snow pile completely melts away will win free beer for the rest of the year.

    Like most places, there’s a mountain of snow piled up outside Montgomery County restaurant Gimaro Seafood and Steaks.

    Only Mother Nature knows exactly when the mound will melt away. But if you have an inside line on the date, it could earn you free beer for the rest of the year.

    Chris Gimaro, owner of the Montgomeryville, Pa. restaurant, is offering anyone who correctly guesses the day the snow disappears from his parking lot, a beer a day for the rest of the year.

    “I have gigantic snow pile like everyone else does. So I figure why not try and have some fun with it,” he said.

    There’s a few things you need to do to be eligible: Like the restaurant’s Facebook page, share the Facebook status update about the contest, tag yourself in the photo on that status, be 21 or older and, of course, guess the correct date. If multiple people guess the correct date, one winner will be chosen, Gimaro says.

    “Let’s just say it’s March 19 that the snow is gone, and then two people guessed that day, I’ll put both names in a hat and whoever I pick will win,” he said.

    Gimaro says he has more than 20 beers on tap, including several locally-brewed Pennsylvania craft brews, and that none will be off the table for the winner. But they will be limited to one free beer a day.

    “At the end of the day, A it’s going to be fun and B it’s going to drive business,” he said adding that with the number of chain restaurants in the suburbs, contests like this are few and far between.

    “Life blows anymore. Nobody wants to have fun," he said.

    All guesses must be entered by March 3.
