Do you offer student or faculty discounts?

Hello West Bank friends,

Every day, the demographics of our local neighborhood change pretty drastically. An influx of students and faculty head to the Universities to begin their day. At some point, often, they eat out. But how many head to the West Bank in lieu of options like Dinkytown and Stadium Village? How many come to the West Bank for their entertainment options?

Some… but not nearly enough.

The WBBA is working on increasing the traffic of students and faculty to West Bank businesses, and breaking down that invisible wall that sometimes seems to separate Cedar – Riverside from the institutions. We work with MN Daily to try to promote positive articles about the West Bank district. With the help of programs like CHANCE and the Leadership Minor Fellows we’re introducing incoming students to what the West Bank has to offer.

What do you do to entice students and/or faculty to your restaurant or venue? In the next iteration of our directory, we plan to highlight the businesses offering student deals and discounts. Do you offer a discount on tickets or a percentage off food? Drink specials? Let us know what your deal is we’ll be highlighting it in the next WBBA directory. This offering is available to ANY West Bank business – not just WBBA members. (But a reminder – WBBA Membership is Due  Friday May 15. Make sure to renew if you want your logo included with directory listings!)
