Restaurant Special Deals Give an Impetus to Sales

Restaurant Special Deals

Deals are something that every consumer looks for. Whether it is a clearance sale at your local fashion shop or a free coke with a movie, deals and discounts are a surefire way to grab eyeballs. Modern buyers have become conscious about every penny they spend. Though spending power has increased among the urban youth, brand consciousness, market perception and a sense of value for money has increased equally.

One sector that offers a lot of deals is the hospitality sector. Restaurant special deals are very popular in Indian cities. Newspapers are flooded with advertisements regarding discounts, free meals, contests with a chance to win goodies etc. The fondness for dining out is a new cultural change that has swept across urban India. However, that does not stop foodies from worrying about the pocket pinch. Everyone is on the lookout for a little something that not only saves some hard earned cash but also shows that the business cares for its patrons.

The Market

Vigilant consumerism and the proliferation of the internet have lead to entrepreneurs becoming more resourceful and adopting newer marketing tactics. How many times have we tried a new restaurant without first looking up its review online? How many times have we asked a friend or a colleague to let us know what they feel about the new neighborhood spa?

Businesses know that one disgruntled reviewer can cause havoc. There are several portals online that offer goodies for restaurant reviews. Food bloggers often offer educated but honest opinions on restaurants and caterers. The market is competitive and a little discount goes a long way in creating a new customer base and also to hold on to existing customers.

Holiday in Sicily: Spend Your Holiday on a Film Set!

Scopello Zingaro Reserve

Romantic villages, breath-taking landscapes, Greek theatres, incredibly ancient traditions, golden beaches, lively cities… and even erupting volcanoes! No wonder if this magnificent island became the favourite choice for many directors. When you spend your holiday staying in one of the most charming villas in Sicily, don’t forget about this fascinating perspective.

Luchino Visconti, one of the most important artists and intellectuals of the twentieth-century, created many theatre, opera and cinema masterpieces, and two of his memorable movies were shot in Sicily. First, in 1947, he filmed the neorealist The Earth Trembles in Aci Trezza (near Catania), a free reinterpretation of the novel I Malavoglia by Giovanni Verga. For the making of the film, Visconti resorted only to non-professional actors: the people of Aci Trezza, in front of the camera, talked in Sicilian language and showed their harsh daily existence. A milestone in cinema is The Leopard (Il Gattopardo) based on the novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. The novel (which, by the way, became the top-selling novel in Italian history), chronicles the changes in Sicilian life and society during the Risorgimento. Visconti was able to create a stunning, award-winning film in 1963, with an exceptional cast: Claudia Cardinale, Alain Delon and Burt Lancaster.

Piazza della Vittoria allo Spasimo, Piazza Sant’Euno, Piazza della Marina and Palazzo Gangi, in Palermo, were part of the set. The luxurious Palazzo Gangi hosted the spectacular scene of the Ball, while Villa Boscogrande, near Palermo, was restored in record time in order to set the scenes that should have been shot in Palazzo Salina, at the time abandoned and in decay.

The great film-maker Roberto Rossellini in 1950 filmed Stromboli (or Terra di Dio), in the awe-inspiring scenery of the Aeolian Islands: the set

And the trip starts exactly when you decide to buy a ticket and to book an hotel. So, what is your destination? Are you an “artistic sensitive guy” that want to loose himself in Saint Peter ‘colonnato’ or to faint in front the “Pieta di Michelangelo”? Or maybe you’re the one that loves food so madly that will start each day with a huge Italian style breakfast, having 4 or 5 meals per day, with the help of a good wine of course, tasting pizza and pasta as much as you resists?

If you’re both of them your destination has to be Florence. Let me give you some few tips for your trip in Tuscany. You’ll see you wouldn’t regret it. First of all, never order bread. Who knows why their traditional bread totally lacks of salt … ok, just kidding but this is a quite interesting story if you got time to listen to it.

According to a legend, Pisa tried to force Florence to surrend blocking its salt refurnishment that usually arrived at the harbour. Therefore Tuscan bread is so famously referred ad unsalted one. Another legend tells that due to the poverty that was effecting Florence population in the Middle Ages, salt was a luxury good that people couldn’t efford
