Beautiful Mama Jessica Brand and Baby Emerson

Jessica and Emerson ©Kim Smith 2014Last weekend I had the joy to meet Jessica Brand and her adorable baby boy Emerson when she stopped down at the dock to talk to Joey about her company Dinner Dealer and her upcoming event, North Shore Emporium. You can hear all about the event as well as the fabulous deals she is offering for this years’ Dinner Dealer deck–Passports, Duckworth’s, and Foreign Affairs, to name only several of the outstanding restaurants participating–by listening to today’s Couples in Love Podcast.

Update: Dinner Dealer Decks New In The Gloucester Things Pop-Up Store – Blue W/White Mesh GMG Caps Sold Out- 4 Black With Black Mesh Left

Check It Out Here-Gloucester Things Pop-Up Store

I’ve written before about how much I’ve saved using my Dinner Dealer Deck.  It’s one of those No-Brainer things unless you don’t like saving money.

For $19.50 you get over $300 in restaurant savings. Basically once you use two of the cards in the deck you’ve in the green.  I’ve used mine at Lat 43 and The Farm.  I still have Duckworth, Alchemy and Cape Ann Brewing,Willow Rest, 15 Walnut and a ton of other Beverly, Manchester, Essex, , all over the North Shore spots to use the other cards in the deck.  It’s not a question if all those cards get used, it’s a fact because I go to all those joints during the course of the year.  So if you hate money, don’t buy one.

if you only used the one for Cape Ann Brewing you’d already be in the green.

With produce and meats locally sourced, Alchemy’s menu is designed to highlight and celebrate the flavors of the season. Long story short, you have to go. But don’t just take our word for it, check out their online ratings . . .

Dinner Dealer The Interview

If you have some type of organization that does an annual fundraiser having your kids sell Dinner Dealer Decks is a total no-brainer.


Think about this-  Instead of your kid selling raffle tickets for $25 a pop and the person they sell them to begrudgingly holds it against you and hates you for putting you on the spot by sending their bratty kid to hit you up for $25 which they will probably never win anything from, the kid sells them a Dinner Dealer Deck.  The supporter pays $25 but after just a couple uses they guaranteed get their money back and then after that they continue to make money from the savings in the deck.   Out of the sale of the deck the organization keeps $10.  The restaurant that offers the great savings gets the business from you coming into their restaurant.

Wins all the way around and best of all your kid is selling something that is actually going to make the supporter money in savings!

Total, complete no-brainer!

Over $300 Savings In Each Deck

What’s more fun than shuffling through a deck of cards full of great discounts to local restaurants? Brand new to the North Shore, Dinner Dealer is dishing out deals to residents in and around the region. Not only will diners get great savings — over $300 — with these cards, they will enjoy dining at a great variety of local restaurants. Retailing for only $25, Dinner Dealer is designed to stimulate commerce within the community and inspire consumers to dine out, dine local, and dine often. It’s a win-win for both the diners and these delicious establishments. Additionally, $1 will be donated back to a local food pantry for each deck sold.

Decks can be purchased online at www.DinnerDealer.com. Don’t forget to get mom a deck for Mother’s Day! And, be sure to tell them Joey sent you.


Love the small discreet size of the decks, easy to slip in your pocket or keep in your glove box or for the ladies inside your purse.
