SARATOGA SPRINGS - You're encouraged to dine out or take out in Saratoga Springs and someone else will pay half of your bill.
The "Split the Bill" promotion is underway to help support local businesses.
The program started on Long Island as a way to help restaurants struggling to make ends meet because of the pandemic.
A family foundation reimbursed customers 50% of their tab, up to $30.
The program is now happening in Saratoga Springs for one day only, Thursday, February 11.
The promotion is expected to be very popular, so you might want to make a reservation, even if you're doing takeout.
They want you to upload your receipt by midnight.
Hear more about what sparked the program by watching the video of Mark Mulholland's story.
A list of participating restaurants is available at the link below.
