My Small Business Saturday experience

I wrote about Small Business Saturday a few weeks ago HERE. Well, today was the day and I thought I would share with you my experience.

I exclusively went to restaurants that I've been to and like and I only purchased gift cards/certificates. Here's a picture of my loot:



  • $40 at "The Place" - breakfast restaurant
  • $50 at "Lamar's" - donut shop
  • $20 at "Chino Bandido" - asian/mexican food
  • $40 at "Macayo's" - mexican food
  • $100 at "Barros" - Pizza
  • $50 at "Pier 83" - Fish and chips
  • $30 at "Caramba's" - Mexican food


Total: $330 in free food!!! Better than any Black Friday deals by a long shot. 

The only downside was that it took about 2 hours to run around everywhere, but well worth it I think.
