Update 18 June 2014: toptable Spotlight is now OpenTable Restaurant Offers.
So we all know that Groupon is taking the world by storm. They came, they grew, they rejected Google’s $6 billion offer and they just keep gaining users. Why? Because don’t deny it, you are just as “kiasu” as me. I mean, it’s life, right? We all want something for nothing and if we can’t get it for nothing, we just want it for less than what everyone else is paying for it.
Sounds like a fair deal to me.
Anyway, if you’re sick of seeing Groupon’s offers for laser hair removal and what not and Just Want To Eat, check out toptable’s new little project Spotlight. Basically every Wednesday, one (or more) new deal(s) pop up on Spotlight, and you can choose to purchase the deal. If enough people purchase, the deal is on and you get sent your voucher. So simple and oh so awesome.
Take for example the recent deal for Le Café Anglais, a restaurant which I loved last time, though I thought it was a little pricey. At £20 for a £40 voucher (yes I did the math, it totally works out in my favour), I jumped at the chance to go back. Even if it was just for the glorified fish and chips.

Panu and I both had fish and chips. Because we’re original like that.
The food at Le Café Anglais was spot on again and I finished my meal in the most restrained way possible (for me, anyway, I still had to have a dessert). One, just one little scoop of refreshing pineapple sorbet. YUM.
Anyway, check out Spotlight. You don’t wanna lose out 😉
