Parsley is known for its healthy food and healthy distrust of business-as-usual in corporate America. "American Express is a big, greedy bank that will take every penny that they can get," says owner Jason Bailey. "They advertise 'fewer fees' and 'double the rewards,' but that couldn't be more opposite of the truth. The financial burden is falling on small business owners that are already working overtime and still struggling." And so his healthy-foods spot in the Golden Triangle is offering its first-ever promotion: Cut up your American Express card at Parsley, and you get a free sandwich.
But some diners don't want a side of politics with their meal.
Says Denver Dave:
I really am paying for food, service, ambience when I eat out - and, that's it. I've avoided this place like the plague ever since I found out that your get a liberal helping of socio/economic political b.s. with your order. Pass. Peddle your agenda somewhere else.
