An invitation to attend a seminar which offers a complimentary meal at a decent restaurant ...

Would you go regardless of what the seminar is about? I got one in the mail and it is the funeral home that is hosting the seminar at a decent restaurant. I never saw anything like this before and I was wondering who would go. You get a free meal while you listen to them talk about buying a plot or a headstone... The last supper lol

One of local funeral homes does one with dinner.

I would not go.

If I want to go out to eat, I'll go out to eat. I don't need to sit through some spiel.

Lol. I wouldn go. But that's because I work in a restaurant that hosts these kind of things. The level of service we are "ordered" to give is subpar. Plus they last forever and are boring.

The "Free Meal" will probably turn out to be a small salad.

I wouldn't go. If I want to eat at a decent restaurant, I will go and pay for it myself. Those things are hardly ever worth it- the food will be preplated long before you get there and it won't be nearly as good as if you'd just gone on your own.

We get things like that all the time ... financial seminars, condos and yes, even funeral homes. We never go b/c we are not willing to sit through the boring lecture to get the food. It's just not worth it.

Nope. I would rather pay for my shit than listen to a bunch of crap & be pressured to buy something. Learned that lesson listening to a "quick" presentation for a timeshare in Vegas years ago for free tickets to a show. Not worth it to me!
