never ending pasta bowl

On the 20th anniversary of promotion, 2,000 Never Ending Pasta Bowl passes sold out promptly

The passes cost $100 for one person or $300 for a family...If that’s something that appeals to you, you’re not alone. The 20th annual Olive Garden promotion known as the Never Ending Pasta Bowl has sold out in a hurry — as in one second.

 

 

Anyone got thoughts or commentary?

There was a guy last year who ate over $1500 of pasta during the pasta period.

I don't particularly care one way or the other about the gluttony or health aspect. It's OG's business, they can do what they want. They've been struggling the last few years and if this can keep them open and people employed, then that's probably for the best.

If you pay $ 100 for pasta you do not know the value of your dollar .

Read about a guy who bought the never ending pasta at Olive Garden and fed homeless people. I think he asked for takeout or such. . .

I am a realist, but momentarily disheartened at the same time. The pupil is no more ready than when I started in the restaurant biz some  40 years ago. But I digress, I will continue to tilt at windmills. To infinity...and beyond!
