My disappointment with the professionalism of Utah area businesses declines even further from its already meager standing. Thanks TR for all you hard work on this.
We really should get reservations for a group of 40 ahead of time somewhere, or it will be a impossible to get in anywhere. Any suggestions?
Dearest AC, et al.
You'll pardon my saying so, but without solid commitment (read money
- which the dinner group has been lacking) I think you'll find any restaurant reluctant to take a reservation for a party of 40!
Did I mention a lack of consensus?
A party of 18 or more requires you to work with the special events coordinator at the restaurant where my wife works. And, I assure you, a deposit and limited menu choices are stardard. Go to the phone now; call your local trough-n-brew
and ask for a Friday night reservation for a party of 40. Don't forget, it's high season; the Outdoor Retailer Show is in town; the Sundance Film Festival is at the cinema; and, finally, could you make that separate checks? Puh-leeze.
: Happy hunting.OK, back to business. I spoke with Bethany at the Porcupine Pub & Grill today; the upstairs sits about 60 people. And while she would not take a "reservation" for our party; she did take my name and number; she said she would instruct the kitchen that we were coming; and she offered to do everything in her power to make sure we had a damn fine time. Based on Bethany's recommendation, it would be wise to have an apres ski gathering at the restaurant. I would suggest that as many of us as possible arrive at the Porcupine P&G between 5:00 and 5:30 to stake-out our turf. I know that's early, but, I, for one, am willing to make the sacrifice for the good of the group. I'm confident that WTFH will be there to make sure all 24 beer varieties are suitably palatable for the Bears.
Tell me what you want to do.
