I just started cold calling them. Be polite, professional and above all, remember that thew worst they can do is say 'No,' but, you already don't have them as a client... so there is no risk, only reward.

Get to the owner or GM if you can and tell them you'll do a free birthday party for them personally (XX number of people) for every 6 times they hire you to work their lot promotions. Build it into the cost (and they'll know that) but they LOVE LOVE LOVE swag.
