The entire city of Ann Arbor, Michigan is going nuts because the University of Michigan football team is FINALLY good again. But the Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Ann Arbor just learned a BIG lesson about getting caught up in hype.
They announced a new promotion on Friday, where every time Michigan wins for the rest of the season, every customer that week will get a discount based on the margin of victory. So, a 20-point win would mean 20% off.
But then Michigan played Rutgers on Saturday and won . . . 78 to nothing.
Sadly, Ruth’s Chris WON’T be giving people 78% off their bills . . . because they either had the foresight or dumb luck to cap the promotion at 50% off.
But still, that’s a great discount . . . for the few people who can get it. They’ve announced that they don’t have any reservations left for this week.
