Corner Pub & Grill Orders Check Presenters with Logo on the Front, Gets These Instead

Corner Pub & Grill (13645 Big Bend Road; 636-225-1300) co-owner Brant Baldanza couldn't stop laughing for about an hour last night when he saw the restaurant's newest case of check presenters. Why? Instead of the logo imprinted on the black folders, 64 of them literally say "Restaurant Logo Here."

"We're still laughing our asses off about this," Baldanza tells us.

Baldanza says the Corner Pub works with a credit card processing company that provides them with check presenters. He's gotten ones with the restaurant's logo before, and the processing company rep asked if they needed more blank ones about six weeks ago.

"I said no, I don't need blank ones, I need ones with the restaurant logo here. Five weeks later, a whole case of these shows up," he says. It's also been one of OG Hospitality Group's most popular social media posts ever. Baldanza's group also owns Cucina Pazzo, the Tavern and the Shack, and he says whenever they post an offer for free soup when you mention the Facebook post, there's no response. But the goof has gotten over 50 responses on Facebook in one hour.

"Hell yeah I'm gonna use them, are you kidding me?" Baldanza says. "I'm using them right now. It's hysterical."

That is funny but I sure in the hell wouldn't use them....if people don't know the story...it wouldn't make sense to use them.

Sounds like the RFT will dock their food some points for this blunder, given their track record.

I once applied for a credit card at Best Buy and instead of my name embossed on the card it just read SAME. People are stupid.

Finally someone who did not claim victimhood or demand a change to something given to them. I like this restaurant's style in using them. Too funny.
