Toledo Talk

"#EATOUTTOLEDO"

Really?
They didn't think about this before creating this campaign? Commas do not work with Hashtags. Eat Out, Toledo and Eat Out Toledo mean two different things.

That was my first thought when I saw the picture of the 3 young women holding the #eatouttoledo sign.

Glad I'm not the only one who's mind went there. LOL

Hearing Jerry Anderson say it multiple times on the news last night was a highlight for me.

Maybe they can get those three girls to take the sign up to Big Beaver Road off of Exit 69 in Michigan, with a tagline of "they come from all over to #EatOutToledo"

The IT department is probably viewing a lot worse under the guise of testing.

But maybe the hashtag is spreading better because of the double-meaning, reaching more people, and then more people are aware of its main intention. It could be an intentionally clever ad campaign.

...yep

we're talking about it here in this thread. it's getting traction on fb. it's all over the toledo twitter feeds.

would #eatatToledoRestaurants have worked as well? or #dineouttoledo? Nope.

I wonder if having some male spokespeople might lessen the blow? Wait, that doesn't sound right either...

Username "enjoyeverysandwich" may the most qualified to discuss hashtag-gate.

Ottawa Tavern wins Twitter with this one:
"@otavern: We fully support #EatOutToledo but think coming out for drinks & socializing is just as important. We need a hashtag for that. #ComeOnToledo"

Taylor Dungjen also recently clarified:
"@taylordungjen: In case you were wondering, the #EatOutToledo double entendre was intentional, says the woman who came up with it."

Suuuure it was, lol.

#ComeonEileen was an 80's hit for Dexy's Midnight Runners
