Discounts along the F line
As part of a promotion, participating restaurants and shops along the F train (which covers parts of Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens) is offering discounts just for flashing your Metrocard. Some of the deals range from 10-15% off your bill to freebies such as desserts or glass of wine. Hey, if you were going to eat there anyway, why not get a little off, right?

In my neighborhood of South Brooklyn note the 20% off Steve's Key Lime Pies, $1 cupcakes at Baked, 10% off at 360, free dessert at Cubana Cafe, and free wine at Savoia.
I haven't checked the list yet, but I'll betcha the former "F"-LINE Bagel place at Smith/9th is NOT participating...they were sued by the MTA for trademark infringement.
But then, Jews for Jesus was also cited recently.
I've spotted other entities using subway-stylized logos and wonder if they've all been "cease and desist" ordered.
