Tweet of the Week: “OpenTable Points Every Time I Order Lunch!”

There’s a new parody video in town — and its name is “LUNCH.” An homage to LMFAO’s “Shots” music video, Josh Hyman and the other funny folks behind “LUNCH” give OpenTable reservations and our Dining Rewards program a nice little shout-out at around the 2:50 mark. Happy lunching, @MrJoshHyman!

Dining Poll: When Are You Most Likely to Try a New Restaurant?

I love dining at new restaurants and old favorites, but when it comes to brunch, I’m usually a creature of habit, going to the same tried-and-true restaurant that serves amazing crepes and is right next door to our go-to movie theater. I love trying new places for lunch because the risk and the price seem less. If something isn’t up to snuff, it won’t ruin your whole day, because, hey, there’s still dinner, right? When are you most inclined to hit a new spot? Weigh in on today’s poll!
