Throw a Great Party
As the owner of your restaurant you automatically become your events “Krewes” (organizer in the New Orleans Mardi Gras tradition) and are responsible for organizing the “throws”to your customers. The most common throws are strings of plastic colorful beads, doubloons (aluminum or wooden dollar-sized coins), decorated plastic cups and small inexpensive toys. You can have these made with your restaurant name and logo so these fun pieces will continue marketing your restaurant all year long.
