For those of you who don't participate in Facebook, I'll need to explain that you can "become a fan" of various things: Your favorite TV show; an actor or actress you might admire; your favorite cause or restaurant. Once you're a fan, you receive little updates or tidbits of news about that person, place, or happening.
About once a month, Cliff and I eat breakfast at Denny's in Blue Springs. Sometimes we just like to clog our arteries a little and consume lots of extra calories, you know?
So during a recent visit there, the lady who took our money at the cash register told us, "We're on Facebook now; be sure and become a fan so you can receive notice of special events and offers."
Figuring it might save me a buck or two on our next visit, I became a fan that very day.
That's how I learned that they have family-friendly "karaoke night". Seriously! I always figured karaoke was something people had to get liquored up to participate in.
They've also held a Kids' Fun Day, and they're considering having a "line-dance night". Somebody suggested a poetry night.
Somehow I just can't picture all this stuff happening at an eating establishment where breakfast is the main drawing card.
But I wish them well in their endeavors.
