I do not cook. It’s not that I can’t, it’s just that I don’t. Every once in a while I’ll get the whim to throw something together, and it’s pretty good most of the time, but nine times out of ten I would rather just not. Thankfully I have a roommate who enjoys cooking enough to do it for both of us (and trust me, she knows how much I appreciate it!), so I usually don’t starve. But when she’s not around or doesn’t want to cook, my options are to subside off of crackers and popcorn (which I did basically for an entire summer), or to go out.
When I do go out to a restaurant, I almost always check them out on Yelp (and I review them, too) or on their websites first. I like to peruse the menu and think about what I want to eat, see what other people have enjoyed, and if necessary check their hours/location/parking/etc.
So how frustrating is it that, in the year 2012, businesses are still not updating their websites to reflect their current offerings, hours, or any other basic info? It literally baffles me that in this day and age where you can promote your business for essentially nothing via Twitter and Facebook and all of those things, that they would drop the ball on such an easy task.
