Marty, sorry about the delay in getting back to you - I have been out of the country!! I have some ideas and would love to kibbutz with you, but it might be better by email. send me a note at with your contact info and I can at least communicate by email. 1st and foremost - like Randy says below - you need to start building a list of your diners. I think you need a good CRM tool. If you are reservation driven, there are a few GREAT ways to build your list and start driving incremental revenue as well. If you don not take resos - there are still a huge number of tools and technology out there to help you BUILD business, without coupons and discounts. Drop me a line!!!

Marty, if you don't have a list of your existing customers, you need to start one. There are several ways to do that including adding a sign up form on your website to automate the process,allowing your guests to enter their own information, which ensures accuracy and saves you time. I have found offering an incentive is a great way to go about this. Holding a monthly draw in the restaurant is a great way to get customers information as well. You can also try using a bounce back offer, given to each customer when they leave the restaurant, again offering an incentive to join your preferred guest club, or birthday anniversary club or what ever other name you want to use. Please let me know a good time for me to call you. I would love to help you get started on the right foot. Send me an email to with your phone number and best time to reach you and i will give you call to discuss further. Randy

Marty, you left a comment on wanting to know how to start keeping track of and reaching out to your current customer base. I would be happy to help and make some suggestions on where to look. I offer these services, or I can point you in a general direction (No Sales Pitch). Feel free to reach out to me and I would love to hear more about your operation.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
