ULC Logbook, Friday, June 10th, 2022:

We started with 78 covers (a split of 34 inside / 44 outside). There were a total of 18 guests who changed plans / cancelled. We were joined by several same-day reservations and the following walk-in parties: 2 at 5:20PM; 2 at 5:45PM (patio); 1 at 5:50PM (bar); 2 at 5:50PM (patio); 1 at 7:35 (bar); 3 at 8:35PM (bar). We finished with 96 guests (a split of 49 inside, 47 outside).

There were 3 orders for takeout: BA Mr. B. order by web; BA Berri N. and a guest named Connor ordered by phone.

For BA’s, we were joined by: Sherwin A. (party of 2, at the bar); Supreme Knight P. K. (party of 6, tbl. 5); The G.’s (party of 2, tbl. 63); Mr. John K. (solo at bar); Yale historian M. P.

Mr. and Mrs. K. gave me an amazing gift — a full-size print of a photograph featuring Mrs. K. and members of the rock band Duran Duran, taken in October 2007, when Duran Duran dined in the Clubroom (cue: “Hungry like the Wolf.”) I Soon I will reciprocate with a gift for the K.’s: right now, I am feeling thankful that we have some of the most thoughtful, generous guests of any restaurant in the world. Thank you to the K.’s!

Saturday: cloudy; high of 79F.
