You thought about it and they finally did it. Oscars is a popular restaurant of the Christchurch area, proposing simple but successful dishes. Like numerous other spots, they have a list of pizza’s but decided to push the concept further by imposing a delivery price based …  on the time! For example, if it is 6:21 and the whims of your stomachs are more and more insistent, order now and pay € 6.21! However, if you dream of a little munchies at 9:33, the price will be the same. Do not miss the ‘Pay the Time‘ promotion, from 6pm to 9.30pm every Sunday to Thursday!
