Blogger Requests Free Meal From Restaurant In Exchange For ‘Online Exposure’—It Didn’t Go So Well

People will do anything for a handout. 

One blogger gave it his all to get a free meal––only to be shot down on social media.

Campagne, a restaurant in Kilkenny, Ireland, received a note promising that "In exchange for a vegan meal for two (we would ideally like to try several items on the menu), we would be happy to provide significant online exposure on both or blogs and social media accounts."

His proposal left him with an empty stomach.

Some noted that the blogger's MO seemed familiar. Had he/she made other attempts in the past?

The probable outcome.

Now here's an interesting pitch.

Real food bloggers are starting to sweat it.

The restaurant shaming the blogger seems to be sparking business for them. Looks like they expanded their own online presence.

Well played!
