"I can't imagine sending our website out. We change it almost everyday to correspond with the new dinner and wine specials, pictures, banquet calendar, staff schedule and all that. The specials are always added to the Facebook Page as well.…"
"FohBoh is telling insistent, and sometimes irate, customers on the phone that window and patio tables are on a first-come first-serve basis, and we cannot promise them a particular table, all the while keeping a smile in your voice."

I have been working in the office at Piper Restaurant for over 23 years. Piper was originally The Sandpiper, a fine-dining restaurant. I work on the web site, menus, ads, the social networking and many other duties. Being a former dance instructer, dancing is what I love most, though now mostly in my living room.
I was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking a little time to complete a survey for my group project? I am a student at California State University, Fullerton and my group & I are conducting a survey to understand how restaurant owners/managers engage in online or electronic marketing. The following survey should take about 5 minutes to complete and your feedback will provide us with invaluable information for the research report we are preparing for Dr. Susan Cadwallader’s Strategic Marketing course..
Your response is greatly appreciated and individual responses will be held in the strictest confidence.
Thanks in Advance!

wow i'm very sorry to hear about the domino effect. I checked out your face book page and i love the pelicans.
I'm not quite sure what your target market is but a couple more personable pics on your fan page would help people 18-25 know you on a personal level.
Also status updates outside the scope of your restaurant could help give your fan page a personable feel.
I really like the gluten free menu.
I actually spend a lot of my day around children who are on gluten free diets.
A lot of children with disabilities are on gluten free diets and there are many search engines and social networks on the web where parents hang out and chat about different activities.
You can direct those parents to your menu and see what they think. It could be a very niche market.
Many children with autism are on gluten free diets so that could be a keyword when searching for different ways to find your target market.
The Piper is excited to be able to sell beer and wine on Sundays now. Restaurants in Ottawa County could sell liquor, but could not offer wine with dinner, a champagne toast at a reception, or a bottle of beer. Thanks to the voters last November, now we can.

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
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" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
