If you missed out on Split the Bill NY’s stop in Saratoga Springs back in February, now’s your chance to cash in—literally—on another Capital Region city’s program. Split the Bill, whose purpose is to give the restaurant industry a much-needed, post-COVID boost, encourages New Yorkers to dine in or order takeout from participating restaurants on a particular day by offering to split the cost of their bill (up to $30). The program has already visited the Spa City, in addition to several towns on Long Island and downstate.
Split the Bill will swing through Albany this Tuesday, May 18. To take advantage of the opportunity, first, you need to pick out what restaurant you want to go to. The restaurants participating are 677 Prime, Blue82, Cafe Capriccio, CiderBelly Doughnuts, The Excelsior Pub, Dawns Victory, Downtown Nutrition, dp An American Brasserie, Emmanuel Thai Restaurant, Hill Street Cafe, Jack’s Oyster House, Loch & Quay, McGeary’s Pub, Mugshots, Nocturnal Cookies, OKIPOKI, Parish Public House, Pearl St. Diner, Ria’s Bistro, Saati Deli & Catering, Stagecoach Coffee, The Bishop, The Cobblestone Lunch Shoppe, The Hollow Bar + Kitchen, The Olde English Pub, The Spinning Gyro, Wellington’s, Wizard Burger and Yono’s. Then, when you get your food, snap a picture of it (you can post it to Instagram later!) as well as one of your receipt. Fill out the reimbursement form on the Split the Bill NY website before midnight on Tuesday to get 50 percent of your money back via PayPal or Venmo. Really—it’s that simple.
This iteration of Split the Bill is made possible by the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District, DeCrescente Distributing, Berkshire Bank, Capital Bank, Community Bank, M&T Bank and NBT Bank.
