May is Monona East Side Restaurant Month!

The Monona East Side Business Alliance (MESBA) is excited to announce the first ever Monona East Side Restaurant Month in May of 2017! Here’s how it will work:

  • Participating restaurants will be provided with Bite Cards—you will give these to your waiter who will place a sticker on the card when you make a minimum food purchase of $8.
  • Bite Cards will also be inserted in the mailed issues of the 2017 Guide to the Monona Area. Watch for delivery to your address in late March or early April.
  • Customers will collect at least 12 stickers to enter the prize drawings of restaurant gift card packs of $375, $200, $125 and $100.

  • Receive an extra entry if you take a photo of yourself and your Bite Card at one of the participating restaurants and post it to the Monona East Side Business Alliance Facebook page. 
  • The drawing will be done on June 7 at our Good Morning Monona speed networking event through a Facebook live video. Winners will be contacted by email or phone.
  • You’ll return your Bite Card with 12 stickers or more to the Monona East Side Business Alliance at 5900 Monona Drive, Suite 302, Monona, WI 53716 or you can drop them off at participating restaurants serving as collection points. See the list below with asterisks.
