The menu feature is a handy tool for Bars, Restaurants and Wineries as well as Musicians and Comedians. To add/edit your menu, you must be logged in to your profile. Click on Edit and select Update Your Profile. Choose Menu from the tabs in the bottom row. Select the Type of Cuisine you offer from the list available. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please let us know. The menu window is ready to be typed in. You can change the look of your menu by using the icons at the top of the menu window. The window is a WYSIWYG window (what you see is what you get). You can enter text directly into the window or, if you are comfortable with HTML, click on the HTML icon to open an HTML Source Editor. If you already have a menu saved in a text file, you can simply copy and paste it into the Menu – a real time saver. *Note: Menus don’t just have to include food items. Be creative. Musicians and Comedians may find the menu area a great place to add extra information including song lists, additional contact info, or to advertise other services that they offer, etc.
