Desperate Times: Mercadito's New Gimmick

New, 7 comments

The PR behind Mercadito Cantina assures us the following new deal should not propel the new restaurant onto the Deathwatch List. We're not convinced. We suggest they just bite the bullet and lower prices for everyone. But that wouldn't be as cute:

"Restaurant workers who visit Mercadito Cantina and present their business card (or the business card of the restaurant that they work for) will be entitled to a 30% discount on food Sundays – Thursdays from 10:00 pm until closing and on Fridays and Saturdays from 11:00 pm until closing."

They'd almost be better off having a secret password, as anyone could get away with this (though perhaps that's the point). Like Frankie Two Stars wrote last week, restaurants get creative when times turn desperate. We'll be keeping a spot on the DW warm in case this doesn't pan out.
