I realize I should have called months ago, but I am the Queen of Procrastination.

Gabe is taking me out for a fancy dinner for my birthday. I am having issues with reservations.

They wait-listed me for CityZen for Saturday night. Marcels (I won’t link to it because the website has really loud cheesy music, sorry Marcels.) is all booked up too. I got a reservation for 2941, but it isn’t until Sunday night. I’ve got babysitters for Saturday night.

Do any of you know anyone who can get me in?

(Yes. I admit this is pathetic, but it couldn’t hurt to try, right?)

  1. I’m telling you, just show up at CityZen and act like you have a real reservation. They’ll seat you.

    Hang on, let me call Robin.

  2. happy Birthday and I hope it turns out brilliantly .

  3. Good idea to just show up and act like you should be there!
    If all else fails go somewhere a bit less fancy – sure you’d probably rather go to one of the places you mentioned, but a Saturday night out without the kids? You gotta take advantage of that!
    Happy birthday – have a fun night whatever you end up doing.

  4. I know the owner of 2941. Honest. But if I ask him to get you in it will just insure that you never get a table there for the rest of your life. How about I don’t call and get credit for helping?

  5. I don’t know. We’re going to Roy’s.

    Happy birthday, birthday gal pal. Smooch.

  6. I can get you in to a nice French place — Le Mcdonalderie…

  7. Hmmm. I don’t know anyone but Le Chat Noir, where we’re having the launch party, can always seat you — call tomorrow and they’ll still be able to get you a reservation.

    We haven’t done CityZen yet — if you get in, tell us all about it!

  8. Oh, and Happy b-day!

  9. My father always got us in to the most difficult eateries in NYC using the David Gordon Theory of Cancellation which states: For every restaurant (or hotel) where you desire to have dinner there will be at least one couple who’s child has come down with the chicken pox which will necessitate a cancellation of their dinner reservation. If you are there when the cancellation comes in the table will be yours.

    Worked every time.
