One Obvious Advantage of Having Your Brand Listed on awesomize.me

By now every marketer has realized the role of social media as one of the most important outlets of establishing a brand. Most of us have both personal and business pages on Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn, awesomize.me, and Pinterest, the latest one. Although, they are all  great marketing channels, but I think excluding the Washington DC based startup,  awesomize.me, the rest are just very passive.

Take a look at these two company pages on awesomize.me below as an example – ita Collection based in NYC maker of luxury handbags and Black & Orange Burgers based in Washington, DC maker of  burger obviously.

I finally had the opportunity to try out the newly opened Black & Orange Burgers in 14th St. Although, their burgers come in small sizes, but the promise of getting your dream orgasm is pretty much guaranteed. It took two of their quarter-pounds to give me mine 😉 JUST PERFECT!

The restaurant that prides itself on affordability, creativity, and quality of ingredients, makes their seven varieties of quarter-pound and half-pound burgers based on blending of fresh ingredients, simple foods and bold flavors into every burger they make. The beef is cooked to perfection and the meat is moist and tender not runny! They are cooked “pink or no pink. The bun is toasted so lightly, Lettuce, tomato, and onion extremely fresh! They provide tender sweet potato fries with four different flavors of mayos! Just yummy! Read more of this post

Cuba Libre’s Old World Service Shines

Walking into Washington’s Cuba Libre, expectations were high for this small chain restaurant. The open-air courtyard, while a bit Disneyesque, creates a real dining experience, successfully transporting guests to another time and place. Balconies and stucco facades, tropical plants and colors and Latino sounds will likely create a welcome respite in the dead of a Washington winter.

At Guillermo Pernot’s Cuba Libre, the service is what shines—welcome to Old World hospitality that hits the right note from start to finish. The dining room is highly organized and there isn’t a moment when the staff has a blasé attitude about serving customers. The management has truly created an experience where guests feel welcome.. I couldn’t help but wonder why every restaurant is not managed like this: seriously with precision. I had almost forgotten what great service was like, long before the days of celebrity chefs and haughty servers who begrudgingly serve your meal with an extra helping of condescension. Let’s hope they keep it up. Read more of this post
