For all of us who are too antiquated, busy, frustrated, broke, burnt out, tired, aggravated, or just plain fed up with the high cost of running a restaurant, the high frustration level of managing a staff, or demoralized because that bail-out weekend doesn’t seem to ever come, jump for joy, there is light on the horizon or possibly at the end of the tunnel.
Remember how that guy down the street serving the awful pasta with the water downed drinks was pummeling you with long reservation lists and a full bar all because he could afford to advertise in the paper? Well, those days, my friend are over. The playing field of promotion is now as level as it ever has been since one caveman yelled over to the other, “Hey, what are you serving tonight?”, and the response was “Squirrel Chardreone”.
If you go to www.tastelive.com you could be part of the new way to taste wines, have dinner, and talk about it while you sip and eat and mingle. Taste live is a concept brought to you so you can e part of the cyberspace posting of how we all think of wine and food.
The site, just launched this morning will give wine enthusiasts a new outlet for their opinions on the best legs, nose, and bouquets of those around them. I am speaking of the wines; mind you, not the other participants in the restaurants across the country who are participating in this event.
Of course if it is happening this week, Twitter is involved. So while sipping, spitting and sniffing, one must now find time to tweet.
The purpose of tastelive.com is to be able to communicate with thousands, maybe millions of other enthusiasts who are sipping across the globe at the same time.
Simply, it’s another way of communicating. But what better way for a restaurant owner to get the word out in a nano-second that their ambiance is better than the guy’s down the street.
Yes, tonight will be a very interesting test on tasting live over the hallowed halls of cyber space.
Go to the site – www.tastelive.com- and take a look. Sniff it. Sip it. And don’t just spit it out. Let’s figure out how to make it work. Reasonable advertising definitely pays, and this may just be the way to go in the future.
