hold out for possibility at Alinea or book TRU?

i'm dining solo in chicago on sat. night. first choice was to go to Alinea, heard about how it's really one of those once in a lifetime experiences (dining solo be damned, i want to do it)! but i'm on the waitlist, sort of seems long. TRU has availability either 6 or 9pm, but there's that $50 cancellation charge if you cancel too late (within 24hrs of the reservation).

does anyone have any experience on what the odds are that i might actually get into Alinea? should i just go with TRU?
