Recession-Wracked Harlem Restaurants Will Pay Your Car Fare
The ViVa (Viaduct Valley) Harlem Restaurant Owners Association has a clever idea (or desperate measure, depending on how you look at it) to get you into their member establishments (including Pancho Gringo and the Hudson River Cafe). Between 5 and 11 p.m., every day, if you come to dinner and spend over $40 a person, they'll send a car service to pick you up and pay for it. If you're coming from outside Manhattan, they'll throw in $10 for gas and tolls.
The next step: restaurants will get waiters to cut your food for you. (h/t Transracial.)
