Dine Out Vancouver 2012

Because the steady decline of Dineout doesn't deserve it's own thread

I haven't taken a look yet but will at a later time.

Now look, as much as I'm bashing Dineout it is still in fact a nice concept. Not everyone has the money to spend normally on some of these places and this does provide a decent opportunity to try a 3 course meal at some decent establishments. However, it's just not really for me anymore as I would still rather go when I want, pick what I truely want to eat, and also feel that the food is made at their highest level instead of some mass production where their banging out the same few dishes all night long.

Dineout is nothing special in terms of price, it works out to free dessert basically.

It's funny how you think dineout will get people to eat at these establishments when they normally don't have the money to spend.

Dineout at a nice place would be $38x2 plus hst and tips, approx $100. Normally it might cost you $120-130. You think someone who doesn't have the means to spend $130 on a dinner has the means to spend $100 on a dinner?

It depends on the place. If you find a decent place that's $28 then it's not too shabby. $38 probably not so much. Your right though if you really break down the cost dollar for dollar it basically works out to be a free desert. But I can tell you for a fact that quite a few people don't think this way because people get suckered in by deals that sound awesome. I've seen tons of people hesitate or never step foot into some of these restaurants yet when Dineout comes out they go crazy.
