Using Facebook to Check-In

I have been trying to make it a habit to use the check-in feature on facebook when we are out and about. It is good networking for the places I like to patronize, and we have found that some of these places have instant offers when you check-in with facebook.

All of our guests arrived early so we took my Honda GoldWing motorcycle for a ride on a beautiful Monday night hoping to have dinner at a lakeside restaurant. We drove about 60 miles and found every place that looked interesting was closed. We knew that Johnny T’s Bistro in Hillsdale was open on Mondays so we headed back home to enjoy a great meal at the best local restaurant that is open on Monday nights.

I used my smart phone to go to facebook and check-in. I did, and got a message that friends who check-in at Johnny T’s this month, get 1 entree free when they buy 1. All we had to do was show the phone’s screen message to the wait staff. Lori went with their pot roast sandwich, I chose the day’s special, herder’s pie. Both were excellent and one was free because we checked-in.
