It brought in new guests;
Easy to follow and freedom to do what we wanted to;
Great selection of restaurants and great idea to do in August; Brings people from outside area that haven’t tried us before
Although we did not see much traffic it was the first year and may need some time to make into a huge event
for all.
It drove traffic in the restaurant.
What did you like least:
Would have liked materials earlier;
We sold more desserts than normal and it put us behind in kitchen area;
We did not see an increase of traffic, no one asked for the menu
All restaurants did not receive same media attention;
It lowered our average check;
We did not see an increase in traffic;
Start planning earlier;
We didn’t get as many guests as we had hoped for – I had high expectations and we will try again;
Time frame
