I was wondering if it would be possible for venues to post news / menu updates etc to their listing in the Food&Drink section.... in a similar way to the Reviews posted by other SE1ers.
This might be a way to avoid the "Guess what we still serve beer" style of post in the discussion forum without encouraging astroturfing.
I applaud the open posting from BigPhil in that it is informative and not pretending to be anything that it ain't However I don't feel it's in the spirit of the forum.
I am not a techie so cannot comment on the feasibility of appending to the Venue listings but thought it was worth suggesting.

Hi Sophie

Thanks for the useful ideas. Something similar is on the 'to do' list - I'd certainly like to make it easier for local businesses to offer special deals to users of the site - but as ever it's a matter of finding enough hours in the day to make it happen.
