St. Louis Young Couples Message Board › Idea for Brunches, as well as dinner out some time!
I was thinking, we all like trying new places, especially local places rather than chains, and we all like saving money! So I thought I'd share this in case it's helpful. If this isn't your thing, then I'm sorry I drew your attention to it! But having talked to a few of you, I think enough people would be interested that I may as well post it to the group.
Anyone who was at my and Laura's bachelorette party might remember Sue, the blonde lady who did the pizza run for us? She's fab. Anyway, she runs a company called Eat Local, which endeavors to maintain a support network between local restaurants, as well as to promote them and help them flourish. Restaurants who are part of this network offer $10 off to people who support the idea. Eat Local covers its costs by selling a deck of cards for $30, each card showing a different member restaurant, and you hand over the card to the restaurant to show that you are a supporter, and receive $10 off your bill!
I'm working for Sue a bit, doing graphic design, and she also gave me a bunch of decks to sell, if I want. Now, I'm not a natural salesperson, I'd rather die than go out trying to sell stuff to people, but I thought if I asked you guys, I could do you a favor while doing her a favor, because it really is a great deal.
If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll bring a deck to a meetup.
You can get all the info at 'eatlocaldeck.com', but I thought I'd list some of the 60 local restaurants currently in the network (i.e. places where you get $10 off if you buy a deck for $30!) There's Kemoll's, Duff's, Robust, Fountain on Locust, Blue Ocean Sushi, Araka, Miso, Demun Oyster Bar, Eclipse, Three Kings Public House, Pickles Deli, Harry's, Barcelona, Bocci, Rhinehaus, Posh Nosh, Cuisine d'Art.. I'm not sure where to stop so I'll just stop there. Also there's special offers included in the deck like 2 for 1 at Hi-Pointe Theater and stuff.
See you soon! (some of you later today!)
