Getting Shafted

I love the entertainment book. I really do. However....

I fucking hate places that get technical with their offers. Trace and I went to the Basement in Nedlands for lunch today. We ordered a $18 pizza, and a $18 burger.

Upon presenting the voucher, we were told that it is only valid for main meals. I had another look at the menu, and found that the main meals were listed in the last quarter of the page. What sort of place does not consider a $18 pizza a main meal?

This has happened to us a couple of times now. It confuses me, because the entertainment book is supposed to be a great way to get new people into your restaurant. Why do some restaurants insist in making people feel like idiots by refusing the vouchers? It just does not make any business sense to me. Not only will we never eat there as a result, I am here writing about it. Is that the sort of reaction they want?
