I've got an idea

Did you have an idea and not write it down? Well I'm going start writing things down. Here's the first one.
Fred's Fancy-- a five course tasting menu for $40 presented upon request after 8pm on Fridays. Fred will cook impromptu dishes that might be a future menu item or a spontaneous creation. It'll never be the same meal twice, so don't ask.

Well there you have it, this will be developed and promoted through our newsletter and website. If your one of the first to read this let your server know you read it on this blog and you'll get $5 off per person of Fred's Fancy.
