Announcing Retrolicious!

Every July, restaurants here in Toronto offer special menus to customers during the Summerlicious food festival. I am all kinds of excited to announce that we’re putting our own Superfluous spin on this tradition and celebrating “Retrolicious” from July 22nd – 26th!

All of our regular menu items – “My Life as a Movie Monday”, “My Favourite Television Show You’ve Never Heard Of” and more – will be served to you this week with a very special vintage twist.

And that’s not all! Starting right now, with this post, each time you “like” a post during Retrolicious, you will be entered into a draw for a very special retro prize pack! Leave a comment to receive an extra bonus entry, for a total of up to two entries per day. There are two prize packs available – one for the Gidgets and one for the Moon-Doggies – so there’s something for everyone.

Get ready for a blast from the past this week – I can’t wait to see you all there!

love amb

    • Well thank you very much! You’re in marketing and PR, right? Can you hook me up? 😉

      And yes, you now have two entries into the contest! Plus a third one, as a bonus for being the first “like” and “comment” of the week – just because I feel like it. xo.

      • yup. you don’t need anybody’s help. you’re a natural. see, you just flashed the “early bird” incentive at an early customer. i like that. it generates customer loyalty 😉 and please don’t forget to add the mandatory disclaimer — organizers’ relatives up to the 3rd degree of consanguinity is disqualified from the promo 😉

      • Yes, right, “early bird incentive”, I totally knew that, really … lol. No, not really. But it’s nice to know I can trust my instincts with this stuff!

        Also nice to know I’m generating loyalty with some of my favourite customers (aka you!)

        Ok, so no prize for Shutterbug Sis – got it Anything else I should know about? I can still give prizes to boys I like, right? 😉

  1. Hi Amb! Love it…totally looking forward to seeing what’s up your retro sleeve! I know it’s going to be good!

    Side note: driving to see my father, I had Adam {Levine} ‘with’ me in the car on the way down…and ‘we’ passed a semi, who had on it’s side, in big HUGE letters, “Amber”. ‘We’ waved hello and sang to you as we passed you by! 😀

    • Hi Bon!! Oh yes, it’s going to be a fun week! So glad you’ll be along for the ride, as always.

      Shut. The Front. Door. You DID?!? That is too cool!!! Yet another sign how we are never really that far from each other! (also a sign that I really need to get out to CA already) 😀

      • Definitely along for the ride! And speaking of ride…YES, totally! Isn’t that great!? I would have taken a photo for you if I hadn’t been whizzing down a mountain highway at 65mph! And duh, you really do need to come out to CA already! 🙂

  2. liking the retro vibe very much 🙂 AND the -liciuos part as it sounds so foodie. You can exempt me from the contest as my comments are such a dependable thing here. For sure want you to “reward” your non-obsessive personality fans. haha.

    Liking the header and facebook changes. Can’t wait for the retro games to begin!!!

    • Thanks Liz! I’m glad you like the decorations around here – I had a lot of fun putting them together!

      And thank you very much for your kind offer re: the contest, but I’m going to include today’s entries for you anyway. As Neil said, it’s important to reward “customer loyalty” – and he’s in marketing, so he would know 😉
