Boost Gift Cards

As our restaurants get back in the swing of things and open up for outside service, check out this incentive that my buddy Pat Adams told me about sometime ago.  It is an effort sponsored by the County's Department of Economic Development and Visit St. Mary's to try and help out our local restaurants who have been hit hard by the virus-related shutdowns. 

Here's the 25 word explanation:  you purchase a $25 gift card from one of the restaurants participating in this program and it is then worth $35 when you redeem it.  Even a Ridge boy like me can do that math and tell you that this is a good deal.  For more info (click here.)   (Note -don't bother checking out Chief's however, because David Dent  informed me that he sold out of his allotment of 100 gift cards in only a couple of days.  I'm not sure how the other restaurants have done with their gift cards but give them a call and see.  Like our Fuhrer is wont to say "What have you got to lose?")
