the list eating and drinking guide

Postby Shannon » Fri Jan 05, 2007 11:14 am

We got this year's form. Are we doing it? If so, what price should I put/head (it specifies it should cover 'a typical three course meal' but not drinks). £5.70 to cover the most expensive thing on the menu (nachos) and a cake? Or just the nachos? Or nothing at all?

I don't think we get to pick the menu item...though we could set a £1.80 limit...

Tell them it's free if they want to volunteer.

Seriously though...I should reply if we're going to do it. I will assume we want to go ahead and give them a 5.70squid limit unless people tell me otherwise by Wednesday afternoon. (I think that maybe we gave them a much smaller limit last time - meal only, no dessert? I don't really care either way, or not at all.)

Maybe it could work? But it will be a kaleidoscopic blend of mysterious shadows and rainbow hued-dreams seen through compassionate tears.

I don't really get it. Can we not give them a price range?

Oh, i just read their last review.

It's not too bad! And not totally wrong.

I say around £5 if they're wanting an average.

Maybe we should work on our negative point. It is a bit nasty of us to make people clear up after themselves. Life's hard, eh!

i think matt gave them a tenner last year.

basically, the scam is this: interns / low level writers at the list get a free meal and they take their friend along with them. so, basically, they want food for two people (is my impression) plus drink and a desert.

at 6 or 7 quid it's do-able and i do believe it brings us plenty of bussiness and is worth getting a good review if possible. MAKE SURE to write down that they come in the daytime when a KM will deffinately be working.

I would actually second £5.70 to cover nachos and cake.

How about 5.30 - covering buritto and cake. 3.90 is equal to or more than most of the main meals we sell. None of the other cafes will be giving their maximum price.
