Xbox Canada Brings Chicken Dinners to PUBG Players in Toronto

Eat like a Winner.

After crossing the threshold of three million players on Xbox Live, Xbox Canada is celebrating PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds‘ success by inviting fans of the game across Toronto to dinner — a chicken dinner, of course.

Winner’s Dinners has set up shop in Toronto at 38 Ossington Avenue, and if you head on over between the hours of 6pm to 11pm from Friday, February 16th through Sunday, February 18th, you’ll be treated to a pleasant experience — provided you survive it.

Upon entering, you’ll find a regular, run-of-the-mill chicken restaurant.

Each table features a trio of bottles containing a variety of flavored special sauces with which you can enhance the flavour of that juicy chicken. Plus, there’s a phone number for you to call to find out more about Winner’s Dinners!

A friendly, well-dressed staff is there and ready to take your order.

But there’s something odd about this menu…

Indeed, this is no ordinary restaurant. (Duh, I’d probably be writing about it under Fast Food Culture on PoisonMushroom.Org if it was.) For you see, this establishment caters to a rather… exclusive clientele. Before you can get to the goods, they will ask you — and you must also ask yourself:

Are you a winner?

If you do indeed fancy yourself as one who wins, then you’ll be led to a back room:

Thirteen stations will be available for winners of all shapes and sizes to prove themselves at PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (or PUBG, if you prefer). Two are set up for squads of four players each, and another two for duos, two more for singles, and one final station in the very back at a picnic table, set up to stream through the Xbox Mixr Channel all throughout the weekend (or during operating hours, at the very least).

But that’s not all!

This fully-armed and operational bar is equipped to serve a variety of drinks, be they celebratory or merely recreational (though you’ll be asked to provide the proper ID if you decide to go for anything alcoholic). You’re allowed one free drink, but any more will be on your dime.

And then there’s what you’ve all been waiting for:

Feast your eyes on this feast of chicken dinners!

And better still, everyone is a winner at Winner’s Dinners! That means everyone who attends will get to partake in a dinner of succulent, juicy, expertly-seasoned chicken — plus, a side of coleslaw and a biscuit (which even the Colonel’s Canadian operations have seen fit to deny us for decades, but I don’t want to get off on a rant).

Now, I know what you might be thinking: “Wait, if the chicken’s free, then I don’t need to fight anyone for it. I’ll just take my chicken and be on my way — how’s that for being a winner, suckers?!”

If you are thinking that, then 1) you’re kind of a jerk, and 2) you’re going to take your eye off the even bigger prize.

Provided you manage to prove you’re a winner among winners and earn your rightful place and the chicken dinner winner, then you’ll receive a t-shirt which declares as much for all the world to see:

Take it in: You just know anyone who sports that around town isn’t going to be dining alone tonight. On the other hand, they might have to share.

If that’s not enough to whet your appetite, then there’s an even bigger (yes, really!) prize at stake:

Each day, Winner’s Dinners (courtesy of Xbox Canada, of course) will be giving away one (1) Xbox One S PUBG bundle, which contains (per Xbox Wire):

  • An Xbox One S with a 1TB hard drive, Xbox Wireless Controller, built-in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player, support for 4K video streaming, premium audio with Dolby Atmos and access to a games library of over 1,300 games like Forza Motorsport 7 and Cuphead.
  • Full-game download of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Join the battle playing solo, or team up with friends in duos or squads. With the Xbox One S PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Bundle, you’re one step closer to earning your first chicken dinner.
  • 1-month Xbox Live Gold trial so you can experience the most advanced multiplayer network.
  • 1-month Xbox Game Pass trial so you can discover over 100 Xbox One games across three generations of games. Xbox Game Pass members will also receive access to new games from Microsoft Studios like Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2 and Crackdown 3 on the same date as at their global launch.

This whole package is valued at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $379.00, and won’t be available in stores until February 20th — meaning not only will you be loaded, but you’ll be loaded early. Who can resist that?

So head on down, it won’t even cost you a tenner, and enjoy the taste of victory at Winner’s Dinner!

Oh, and make sure you’re cool with all this before you go. I don’t want to hear about anyone wasting bus fare because they’re camera-shy:
