[Restaurant] Independence Day

We’re different than most restaurants in these parts, wouldn’t you say? In an area where a slew of corporate restaurants chains seem to dominate where many people dine out and how they think about food, we like to think that Spark Restaurant Lounge is one of the restaurants in the area that offers you a different experience: food that is more original, more local, more seasonal, and just more better.

Still, even with that independent blood of ours pumping, we acknowledge our dependence on our quite independent customers: you. If you’re reading this, you’ve probably already noticed that we’ve often relied on the buzz of social media not just for us to communicate with you, but also for you to communicate with us. With that in mind, let’s make one thing clear: we depend much more on you than you depend on us. So, the more we hear from your independent voice, the better this independent restaurant of yours will do at keeping you one happy foodie.

Now, with that preface attached, let’s celebrate both yours and our [restaurant] independence this 4th of July.

For the next 10 days we’ll be tracking how many new people become fans of Spark Restaurant Lounge on Facebook, just one of the sites we use to keep us all in the loop with each other.

Here’s your bonus: by whatever percentage our fans increase, we’ll give you that same percentage off dinner on July 20, up to a hefty 75 percent off.

That means the more friends, family, lovers, and online stalkers you invite to join the Spark fan hood, the more we’ll be discounting your (and our new fans’) entire dinner tab. Can’t you already taste our savory filet mignon for a mere $6.25 or our newly-added basil-crusted halibut for a simple $5.50?

So let’s do this. Here are two simple ways we can embrace more people into our Spark family with just a few clicks of the mouse.

1. Copy the following (including the URL) and paste it as your status update:

I’m a fan of Spark Restaurant Lounge. Become a fan and we'll get up to 75% off dinner.

2. Suggest that friends become fans of Spark Restaurant Lounge:
