I need some ideas of how to get my bar busier.?!

Question: I need some ideas of how to get my bar busier!.!?
I work at Applebee's and we have been slow lately!. I need to think of some ideas of things I can do to make my bar busier, games I can play with my guests and guests can play with eachother, and ideas on how to fill my bar!. Drink specials are not an option!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

* See if you can invite a sports star (no matter how minor a star) or a local musician to come in to sign autographs!. They often will bring in business!. You'll have to advertise this heavily!.

* Send out fliers to local businesses with a good number of employees - telling them they have 'won' a free after-work party on the day of their choice and to call you to reserve a day!. Then have decorations and games for their event!.

* Do you have room for a guitar player or duet to play!? Contact a local college that has music classes and see if anyone would be interested in playing in public for free!. Ask them to invite their friends into listen - they'll buy drinks at the same time!.

* Contact a local radio station that has the music your crowd listens to - and arrange to have a monthly party on behalf of the radio station!. They will advertise it on their station and bring in their listeners!.

I hope that helps!. I know business is down right now and you have my sympathy!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well the Applebees here does karokee on certain nights and it gets pretty busy on those nights!. There is also a restaurant here that sends me emails every so often about their specials and things that are going on!. also some sort of advertisement besides those applebees commercials!. Like maybe passing out flyers at a college campus about how you are having karokee night or what not!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The more women you can attract,the men will follow!.Most of the women will not have to buy drinks or food ,but the men will spend like crazy!.Any promotions geared toward women Women's Night,Women's Drink specials,Young professionals night!.It may take a little while but buisness will increaseWww@FoodAQ@Com
