Who doesn’t love free gifts!?!
With such a crazy year, it’s been easy to forget some of the regular events that take place throughout the year. March snuck up on us and before we knew it, it’s already time for March Madness!
Starting tomorrow, NYC bars including Wicked Willy’s, Royale, Blue Haven East, and Taproom No. 307 will be giving out a free Fire TV Stick 4K to any customer who places an order for takeout or delivery.
Roberta Souza, Managing Partner at Taproom 307 said “March Madness is always a busy time for us, but this year will be different. We’ve been lucky to host limited indoor and outdoor seating, but we won’t be able to host at our regular capacity, so we’re excited to be giving away a Fire TV Stick with every take out or delivery order placed (while supplies last). This way, customers who aren’t able to dine with us in person can still support and safely enjoy the food they know and love at home.”
This offer is meant to encourage New Yorkers to continue supporting local businesses in addition to keeping people safe by giving them the opportunity to watch the tournament from home.
The pandemic continues to negatively impact NYC restaurants and bars as over 1,000 establishments have closed since last March. Takeout and delivery orders have been keeping these businesses afloat and every order helps.
According to an American Express Independent Restaurant Insight Study, 89% of small, independent restaurant owners say they depend on takeout orders to keep their business alive.
Marisa Braat the General Manager of Wicked Willy’s spoke on the long-awaited return of March Madness and said “it’s sad that we won’t be able to celebrate like we normally would with all of our supportive customers, but we’re excited to offer them the next best thing… so they can safely watch the action from home and feel like we’re all together rooting on our favorite teams in spirit.”
Likewise, bar owner Scott Cohen of Blue Haven said “[w]e’re known for being a place where sports fans can gather and with limited seating, we’ve been trying to give our customers the experience they know and love. While we’re looking forward to reopening at full capacity sometime soon, for this week, we’re excited to be able to give our customers an Amazon Fire TV Stick (while supplies last) with their takeout orders, so they can enjoy our food while staying safe watching the tournament at home.”
This offer will only last until supplies run out so order early!
