some spooky fun for their customers.

Sunday lunch at Manhattans
today’s troubled world, if you stand still in any business, just maintaining the
status quo, then you are really going backwards. If you’ve got the product, then
you have to find new ways of promoting it if you want to stay alive. Dave Bowers
and Steve Manning from Manhattans understand that principle, and as part of
their promotional push, they have introduced a Sunday lunch for the
discriminating diners on the Eastern Seaboard.
