Free wine and beer at Woodberry Kitchen

WoodberryBar.JPGHere's a deal for you. Today and Thursday Woodberry Kitchen is celebrating its second anniversary by offering free wine and beer selections to those who arrive on foot, by bike or by light rail. I'm not sure how they can really tell, but I guess they take you at your word.

You have to buy food, of course.

Update: Thanks to Hon, I got in touch with the PR person who says he made a mistake and it is through Friday. However, the required food purchase is a legal thing.

here is their ad for it, it says Monday thru Friday and it says nothing about having to buy food.

The PR e-mail I got said, "[W]e are doing complementary local beer and wine selections for people who walk, bike or take the light rail here (with the purchase of food, of course)...." It also says through Thursday. It isn't opened yet to call. Maybe someone who does it will tell us more. EL

My husband and I went there last night to celebrate our two year anniversary and received a free glass of sparkling wine and a piece of anniversary cake. It was a nice coincidence!

The linky provided by hon didn't work for me, if it doesn't for you try http://us1.campaign-archive.com/?u=5fc1a26c3265bd5065425de25&id=7c6dd7be6a . I did notice at the bottom it does mention "with the purchase of food". Hope this helps, thank you hon for the heads up it's still an awesome place to grab a bite!

that worked an hour and a half ago when I posted it and didn't say you had to buy food, looks like they were alerted and they have since pulled it.

Definitely a strategic mistake to pull that offer- they're going to lose out on the "coming in for free drinks without buying anything" crowd which is definitely where the money's at.

Shill spam at 5:07 AM! (This is allegedly shilling a UK retail footwear website, but the author appears not to be a native speaker of English.)

would it be so wrong to put the bikes on the carrier on the car on the way to a hampden side-street where you would have to park the car to remove the bikes to ride 2 or 3 blocks to Woodberry to reward yourself with a free glass of Whatever?
And if so, why?

is that 10 or 11 prepositions?
no matter. I stand by the proposition.
unless I'm riding.
2-3 blocks.
Max.
