Look what I saw on the Lost City Blog - a Publicist for the soon-to-open Arby's in Downtown Brooklyn contacted them...
Today, a press agent for the fast food franchise—which has taken possession of the beautiful, 19th-century, landmarked interior of the old Gage and Tollner space on Fulton Mall in downtown Brooklyn—reached out to Lost City.
Aside from offering an interview with an Arby's rep (yes!), the publicist wanted to communicate two things. Arby's will bring 110 new jobs to the borough, and—very exciting—the joint will offer free Wi-Fi.
What irks me about this is the fact that Lost City, which is otherwise a great blog, has NOT been supportive of my favorite Roast Beef Fine Dining Establishment moving into the historic Brooklyn space. Meanwhile, who has been a bigger champion of Arby's than I have???
Dear Arby's Publicist: I am available for a VIP tour on Thursday in exchange for all THE FREE PUBLICITY I've been giving you. And then I'd be happy to sit down and enjoy my complimentary meal of delicious roast beef and curly fries. You can reach me at email@example.com so we can work out the details.
With Love and Horsey Sauce,
