Yale Parents Weekend / Nick’s Nest — October 9 – 13, 2021

ULC Logbook, Saturday, October 9th, 2021:

At lunch, we started with approx. 70, welcomed several parties of walk-in’s, and finished with 86, with two orders for takeout. One order was for BA Berri N.; we were joined at lunch by BA Nicholas N. (party of 4, tbl. 78); and BA Jane D. (party of 4, started at table 62, moved inside to table 12 due to very light, quickly passing, precipitation.)

At dinner, we started with approx. 240: there were many changes of party size, and we did our best to equalize for several cancellations with a handful of walk-in parties. We finished at 216 covers.

For BA’s, we were joined by John K. (party of 2, tbl. 20); Judith R. (party of 3, tbl. 62); Judy H. / Mr. S. (party of 2, tbl. 122); Carl P. (party of 3, tbl. 14); William F. (party of 2, tbl. 4); and S. W. / Yale President P. S. (party of 9, tbl. 65).

We were also joined by several Yalies and their parents.

Robert e D. M. Jr. joined us for lunch, his first time back with us since the pandemic: Mr. M. said his bavette entree was perfect, he is so happy we are open for lunches on the weekends, and he sends his greetings and love to JM and Chef JP.

Many parents, on their way out, expressed their desire to join us again soon!

At lunch, J. was 10 minutes late; P. (support) was 15 minutes late; N. was 20 minutes late.

The weather held throughout service (again approx. 6% chance of a passing shower had been forecast) which facilitated a full first seating of the patio, and a slightly lesser second seating as it started to get chilly outside.

  1. Dear Mr. Mullen,
    This is a strange way to contact you but I can’t find an email address on your blog.
    I am on the Board of Directors of the New Haven Preservation Trust and am doing a research project about New Haven carpenters and masons in the 19th century. Sources in the New Haven Museum library led me to the firm of Perkins & Chatfield, which built the Gaius Warner mansion. I would like to write a short article for the Preservation Trust’s website (www.nhpt.org) about the house and its adaptive reuse over the years. May I have permission to use some of your pictures showing the house before and after the Union League addition was added? Of course I would give you and your Roger Sherman blog credit for the photos.
    Please let me know if this would be acceptable. Thanks for your consideration.

    1. Absolutely: the New Haven Preservation Trust has my total blanket permission. It would be an honor. Please pass along my appreciation to everyone at NHPT for the incredible work you all have done / are doing to keep history alive for future generations. I am excited to learn more about the GF Warner house!

  2. Thank you very much. I hope to write this article in the normally relaxed week between Christmas and New Year’s. I could send you a draft so you see how we use the pictures, if you would trust me with your email address. If you’re interested, there are other articles I’ve written on the Trust’s website under the Blog heading.
    I appreciate your help.
    Susan Godshall
