Toronto Entertainment book-takeout?
Is it acceptable to use the Entertainment book coupons/card for takeout? Most of the deals say "valid anytime" and only some specify "dine in only".
I don't mind getting take out from the casual restaurants/pubs and haven't had a problem doing so, but what about the more upscale places?
Is it rude to ask for takeout, and would they allow it?
An interesting question burlgurl. IMHO I think most places would not be happy taking a coupon for takeout. However if the establishment has not specified any conditions it's their own fault. I say go for it and enjoy. In reality though with a 2 for 1 offer the establishment is losing money. I think they want you to eat in and order drinks/appetizers/desserts to cover costs.
It probably depends on the place but I think most of the upscale places may insist you dine in. The idea behind these coupons is to get people into places and hopefully they'll return. I suggest you give individual establishments a call to see what policy they have about takeout.
