At lunchtime in the Ballroom, we were joined by approx. 33 guests (not included in total covers) for Brigitte G.’s baby shower.
We accepted a same-day reservation for Joseph A. (party of 2, tbl. 8, served by J.-M. M.) after he said over the phone that he was a member of the New Haven Police Dept. After dinner, in the vestibule, Mr. A. said that he and his wife had a great dinner, clapped his arm around my shoulder, brought me in close, and conspiratorially growl-whispered that there have been reports of a Prohibition-style “speakeasy” operating without a liquor license somewhere along the ULC’s block of Chapel Street, and I kept my mouth shut.
Sunday: cloudy, high of 57F, with 100 percent chance of mothers. Monday: mostly sunny, high of 66F.
