great idea. I really appreciate local vendors encouraging this.
Hello Library: Last evening (9/11) when I attempted to use the 10% offer at the Pentagon City location of Lebanese Taverna, the staff there were not aware of this discount being offered. They awarded me the discount after I showed them the library email I had received announcing it and after consulting with their management, but I got the sense it was a one-time concession. You may want to reach out to the restaurant again to confirm the offer. They have great food and I appreciate the library supporting this promotion, but communication seems to have broken down somewhere on implementing this. Thank you!

Thank you for letting us know about your experience last night – we have contacted Lebanese Tavenra to make sure that all staff at the participating locations are made aware of the offer.

Yes this is a great promotion! Love it!
Delighted to see quality restaurants like Gaijin and Lebanese Taverna adopting this promotion. An exceptional meal is guaranteed at either. I’m looking forward to trying a couple others with which I’m less familiar.
