Here is how it works:

The optimal time to have a potential patron view your advertisement is at the moment they are deciding which show to see. Chicago Critic’s visitors use our website to decide how to spend their evening; having your advertisement on all reviews of shows playing at venues near to your restaurant maximizes your exposure to theatre-going patrons. Each theatre venus has a Google Map with a pin for the venue’s location – nearby restaurants have their location pinned and below the map is detailed info about each restaurant AND A SPECIAL COUPON will be displayed for readers. Our readers will pick their dining spots based on your location and your special coupon offer. Your coupon will be prominently displayed on each review map from that show’s venue. (In some case, your map may appear on more that one review since some venues have multiple theatre spaces. Also, it is possible that your restaurant may be located near more than one venue and that map could have your restaurant listed. Good News: you only pay $39 quarterly (for 3 months) for your listing on the nearest venue map.

Just like yellow page advertising, the first restaurant to order will get the top position, so order now.

Currently, Chicago Critic has a growing average of 2,800 unique visitors per day with 10,395 page views. Our hundreds of loyal visitors are clicking on at least five different pages to read our reviews and theatre articles every time they visit the site. Your ads will target an affluent demographic of theatre-goers, and make their decision to dine at your restaurant prior to their show an easy one.
