Thoughts re DAT in general

Myles | Jan 27, 2003 02:19 PM

I am puzzled by one thing with this board. I was cautioned by a friend not to mention to a restaurant I was considering eat at (to try their DAT offering) about the so-far negative reviews it had been getting here.

Subsequently, as the promotion winds down, and more reports come in, the negative far outweigh the positive ones. Which got me thinking: shouldn’t the restaurants, the SF Convention and Visitors Bureau be made aware of the results of their promotion thus far? Don’t we owe it to ourselves, the community in general, this area that we live and love in, call our home, our pockets, to let the other side know? I mean, we’ve spilled our, well, at least, stomachs, souls and quills into sharing our experiences re DAT with each other, so why not with the institutions and forces that are written about? Would it not result in a better product?

Like any cycle that needs closure: if you don’t communicate, then how can something be fixed or improved? If we just commiserate w/ each other and wallow in our unhappiness, and keep this as a secret coven, then I think, ultimately, we all lose. Without feedback, then how can they improve for the next go-around?

Your thoughts?
