When Twitter saves you $$

Best -- well, only -- use I've ever seen of Twitter is restaurants that let you know what's new, what's fresh and what's on special. This makes sense of the technology. Here are a few to get you started (and if you know others, send them to me via e-mail, if you can stand to; I remain reluctant to dive into Twitter, though I am signed up (voraciouseater).

Some offer Twitter-only deals, like NoDa's Crepe Cellar (CrepeCellar on Twitter), which recently gave Twitterers $2 off lunch, and Pewter Rose (PewterRoseCLT), which offered 20 percent off your bill.

The beginning of a list: lapazcantina, thecounterqc, ameliesbakery, commonmarket, jbnoble and noblesclt, intermezzocafe, bigdaddysclt (that's an updated name), soul_gastro, and chefmarkhibbs (that's Ratcliffe on the Green).

unfortunately, based on my one experience, I can't see how the Crepe Cellar could have you in and out in less than 2 hours for lunch...

@mhollandbigdad isn't on Twitter with that user name. Unless of course, there's an issue with Twitter tonight.....

Thanks for these suggestions. Twitter had become amazingly great for charlotte dining experiences.

I live in noda and crepe cellar is my favorite place to dine in the neighborhood. The servers are attentive, and the management has inquired about my experience on multiple occasions. I have never had an issue with time in over 10 instances of patronizing them. Try it. You'll be glad you did.
