Encourage those trying to do something

Over the last few weeks have seen a number of examples of restaurants in Dublin offering excellent value.  I see Tom Doorley writing on the same subject in the Irish Times today.  The begrudgers will moan about the prices the restaurants were charging during the Celtic Tiger days.  What’s the point?  These business ares fighting (1) for their existence and (2) to keep people in jobs.  One of the owners makes a point – when you ‘cut to the bone’ no money to advertise to tell people about the offers.  Use the web!  And if, as a customer, you think you got great value promote them on facebook, your own blog, wherever. 

 My example – gourmet burger kitchen in Temple Bar – last week on offer: outstanding cheese burger, bowl of chips and a softdrink – €10.
