Washington, DC (April 21, 2011) — Sure. There are a lot of guides and sources out there, but have you found the absolute comprehensive source for exclusive offers, specials, happy hours, and music at nearby restaurants, bars, and nightlife venues? And all in real time? Well, there is a new app for that.

From the creative mind of Sam Von Pollaro, Venga was designed and built with restaurants in mind with input from over 50 owners, managers, and staff. Venga already has over 70 restaurants and bars signed up to use their hospitality services and is the Featured Provider of the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington, which is the voice for over 700 establishments ranging from casual eateries to internationally acclaimed fine dining restaurants in the Washington area.
Venga’s mobile apps and website gives consumers the scoop on exclusive offers, specials, happy hours, music, and events at restaurants, bars, and nightlife venues nearby.
For restaurants, Venga is the most effective way to reach new guests and long-time regulars with specials, products, events, and offers at the exact moment they’re deciding where to eat, drink and socialize. “With Venga, I’ll be able to send real time updates to give guests in the area another reason to stop by Graffiato, like – just made 20 orders of zeppoles, get them while they’re hot,” said Mike Isabella, Chef/Owner of Graffiato and recent contestant on Top Chef All-Stars.
Venga’s mobile website for Blackberry and other smartphone users will be released in May. Venga plans to expand to other cities later this year.
