Geja’s Cafe is running a promotion that is equal parts random, desperate and enticing: for their 42nd anniversary (admittedly, impressive), Geja’s is offering 42% off on your food bill. Obviously this means you pay full price for booze, but such is life. Anyway, if your idea of romance is decades-old decor and kitschy fondue, then we can’t think of a better place to spend this evening. Now is definitely the time, too, because the promotion is over tomorrow. In their press release, Geja’s claims to have been the site of 123,702 first dates. How could they know this information? Do they count nervous smiles? Meanwhile, we can’t get the metaphor of fondue as fatty cesspool of romantic longing out our head, and we hope we’ve done the same for you.
