Nebraska Bar Leaves Special Notes For Customers Who Don’t Drink And Drive — Free Burger & Fries on Next Visit!
Don’t drink and drive; get a free meal. Sounds like a pretty good deal!
The simple yet potentially life-saving gesture is how the Union Bar and Grill in Gering, Nebraska, lies to run it’s business. The restaurant never tows vehicles that remain in their parking lot overnight. Instead, its owners reward their customers who leave their transport behind by giving them a free meal when they return to pick up their car.
“Bring this letter to the bar and we will give you a Hamburger and French Fries.”
Scott and Carla Swanson, owners of the Union Bar & Grill eatery in Gering, Nebraska, leave a kind note on the windshield of the cars left overnight with instructions to, "Bring this letter to the bar and we will give you a Hamburger and French Fries."
"Just wanted to thank you [for] leaving your car parked overnight," they wrote in a letter they left for a customer named Austin recently. "I’m not sure if you consumed alcohol at our restaurant or not, but we want to thank you for not drinking and driving."
Austin’s friend, Janelle Martin, posted the letter on Facebook with the caption, "More bars should take note from Scott and Carla Swanson. Austin met a friend at the bar last night so he left his truck there and I picked him up. He found this note on his truck this morning when I took him to go get it."
Props to the Union Bar & Grill in Gering, Nebraska, for their thoughtful and potentially lifesaving gesture. It’s the public-spirited kind of business strategy that wins on all fronts.
