For two weeks, nine West Roxbury restaurants competed for the title of best burger, but only one came out on top in the West Roxbury Main Streets competition.
West Roxbury’s local restaurants were in competition mode for two weeks this month, putting their best burgers on display to win West Roxbury Main Streets' Burger Wars in the neighborhood. Between March 5 and 16, nine West Roxbury restaurants participated in Burger Wars, in a West Roxbury Main Streets (WRMS) competition, an organization that promotes and enhances West Roxbury’s business district. A dollar of each burger purchased is going to WRMS' revitalization efforts. Barely a year in business, Porter Café found a creative and simplistic way to make a name for itself. Owners Dermot Loftus and Paul Murphy heard about the competition through WRMS and thought it would be a good idea to participate. Their “Classic Burger” has since gained…

Competition, which will benefit West Roxbury Main Streets' community revitalization efforts.
Let the games -- and the eating -- begin. West Roxbury Main Streets' Burger Wars commences today, pitting nine of West Roxbury's restaurants' burgers up against one another.

For every burger served, $1 will count as a vote, and will also be put towards WRMS' community revitalization efforts. The battling restaurants are: WRMS Executive Director Kara O'Connor said the event provides an opportunity to highlight the neighborhood's restaurants. December's Holiday Stroll, by contrast, focuses on retail in West Roxbury, she said. Learn more at WRMS' website.

West on Centre, Mobil 1 Oil Change, Masona Grill have all used sites like Groupon, Buy With Me, and Living Social.
When Manny Sifnugel felt the need to get the word out about his restaurant this past winter, he thought about putting an ad in Boston Magazine or in other area publications. He struggled with the idea, though, knowing the risks associated with traditional advertising. "Ads are no guarantee," said Sifnugel. "And ads can be expensive." Instead, the lead chef and owner of the Masona Grill turned his attention towards a new way to advertise and put a deal on the popular coupon website Groupon. Groupon, along with similar sites like Buy With Me and Living Social, offer coupons (in this case, those who signed up for the deal were able to buy $40 worth of food for $20) provided enough people sign up to buy the deal before a time limit expires.
