Do you GREASE?

woo! | Dec 30, 2004 05:08 PM

Imagine the scenario. Busy Friday or Saturday night. Out with and forgot to make reservations. Everyone wants to go to X... a busy restaurant that you just KNOW is gonna have an hour+ wait....

You go, and it's a 45-60 minute wait.

Have you ever slipped the host/hostess a $20 bill to get seated quickly? I'm sure many feel that is a REALLY BAD thing to do, and I certainly understand that. But really, have you done it? Do you do it? How do you feel about it?

My understanding is that this is VERY common and a great way to get a fast and quick table as well as good service (waiter hears you're a good tipper from said host/hostess). Not defending. Just sayin'...
