  1. Couple of questions. Is there any subsidy involved from the municipality? Or are the participants paying it for themselves? How have they arranged this with the TAX-office, since they will still be taxing at full prices, I believe. A menu for 10 euro sounds good. An alcoholic drink for 5 euro?! I pay 1.50 euro for a glass of tsipouro and 2 for a small bottle of ouzo. So what will I get for 5 euro that is so special? Bottle of wine for 12 euro? Absurd. Just take open wine. Kilo should not cost more than 5 euro.
    Minor point: “We go out Athens” does not sound right for me. What benefit would the municipality have when everybody would go out of the city on those days? 😉 And when it is also for tourists there should at least exist a non Greek logo too. Or not?

    municipality will receive more fees from the increased electricity consumption in bars & restaurants and shops if people do some shopping before/after dinning & eating. for example higher electricity consumption when the cash-register prints more …receipts. the offers will attract more people to the city centre and businessmen will open shops again. Downtown is almost abandoned, you know…

    Maybe the logo is adressed to Greek-speaking tourists?
