New Giveaway! $25 Alloco's Gift Card

One of the things I like about writing this blog is being able to give away free pizza to my readers. Most of the time, that involves me approaching a pizzeria owner and asking him or her to donate a gift card or certificate.
But thanks to the generosity of a local business, SEMtech Systems, I have two $25 gift cards to give away for Alloco's. Alloco's, on Long Pond Road between Ridgeway Ave. and Rt. 31, offers pizza, pasta, wings and subs. Check out their Facebook page here.
First let me tell you a bit about SEMtech. It's a small commercial and residential access control/multimedia company located in downtown Rochester.
What does that mean? Well, on the commercial side, SEMtech services and installs the parking machines in the downtown parking garages. They recently finished installing new equipment at the new Midtown parking garage.
For residential customers, SEMtech installs front-door keypad locks, video doorbells, smart thermostats, smart lighting, and home theaters. You can read more about the services SEMtech offers here.
I may look into SEMtech's services myself. I misplace my keys all the time, and I do get annoyed fumbling around for the right key when I arrive home after dark. The fewer keys I need to carry, the better.
But back to the giveaway. SEMtech has graciously paid for two $25 gift cards for me to give away to my readers (I get nothing out of this, by the way, other than the satisfaction of making free pizza available to my readers).
I'll give away the first $25 gift card next Monday, June 29, a little after noon. To make things interesting, I'll hold off on giving away the second gift card until two days later, on Wednesday, July 1, around the same time. You won't have to enter twice to win - one entry will get you in for both drawings - but this will give anybody who missed the first one a chance to get in for the second.
To enter, just send me an email at Include "Alloco's giveaway" in the subject line. Winners will be chosen at random, using Please include your actual name and mailing address in the body of the message. I will not use your information for any other purposes than this giveaway, and I will not provide your information to anyone else, ever.
Thanks again to SEMtech for making this possible.

  1. Ive had Alloco's 2 times now. Their pizza is very tasty. Similar to Pontillos with a nice charred taste on the bottom of the pizza. They don't skimp on the toppings either!
