Closing Time

Tugboat | Mar 1, 2002 10:40 AM

Anyone else have this happen. . . You show up at a restaurant or bar. You may be pushing closing time, but you certainly are not past it. Then you get the stares and attitude from the staff as you place your order.

If the place closes at 10:00, do they want you there by 9:30? Or can you place you order up until 10:00? My brother had a really ugly experience recently.

He went to a nice French Bistro in DC. He was told his reservation was for 9:45. Gets there and finds the place closes in 15 minutes and everyone is giving him the evil eye.

They acted like he was late when in fact he was on time.
