Tonight, we got the distressing news that two restaurants in our area have closed. Gone belly up. Kaput. And one of them was a favorite of ours.
Bennigans and Steak and Ale.
The news (where we learned of this tragedy) blames our sad economy for the closures. They claim that not enough people are eating out. And not enough money is being poured into local restaurants.
So, we are going out to dinner tonight. We have to. We have to do our part to help the economy.
I work for a company that manages and tracks gift cards, and I've been following retailers filing for bankruptcy on savvywallet.com. Ponderosa and Bonanza are still accepting Metromedia gift cards. I'm not sure about franchise owned Bennigans's. My advice? Go spend your gift cards, we simply do not know how long they will be accepting them. Don't forget The Sharper Image incident: $25m in unused gift cards.

Does KFC really count as going out to dinner?
