ULC Logbook, Friday, November 18th, 2022:
We started with 123 covers (the total includes the Clubroom party, but not the Ballroom rehearsal dinner). One party cancelled, for a total loss of 2 covers. It was a high energy night in the Chapel Street Historic District: we were joined by a walk-in party of 7, for Yale Urology, and T served at least 13 guests at the bar. We finished with 158 guests (the total includes the Clubroom party, but not the Ballroom rehearsal dinner).
For BA’s, we were joined by: TC (party of 2, tbl. 14); WM (party of 2, tbl. 2); Ms. D with friends from her building who were first timers at the ULC (party of 3, tbl. 16); DL (party of 7, tbl. 5); RP (party of 3, tbl. 9); the Ks (party of 2, at the bar); architect CD (party of 4, tbl. 23); TZ (party of 3, tbl. 29); KD, former ULC manager extraordinaire (party of 3, tbl. 3); the Ls, designers of, “La Terrasse,” (party of 4, tbl. 13); Yale Finance Symposium (party of 6, tbl. 17); SE (party of 5, tbl. 16); HF (party of 2, tbl 19); JF (party of 7, tbl. 31); AT (party of 3, tbl. 9).
In the Clubroom, we were joined by 16 guests from Masonicare, hosted by BM.
In the Ballroom, we were joined by 85 guests for the rehearsal dinner of HK and ZB.
JD served the Masonicare party in the Clubroom — Honored to oblige Masonicare’s request for an amateur local historian, it was great fun tonight, getting to share stories of the building’s history with an awesome, eagerly receptive audience — quite a change from the usual audience for sharing Roger Sherman stories, my opposite of eagerly receptive Aunt Judy.
A walk-in couple, who dined at the bar, commented: “T was magnificent. It was a very busy night and yet T continuously went a step beyond our expectations with his service. We love him, and he loves us.” Bravo to T, C (barback), RT, CF, Chef G., Chef J., Chef J., Chef W., Chef T., and the entire team!
Despite the snow flurries coming down around 9PM, the forecast continues to be for several more days of mostly sunny weather, with highs in the low 50’s / upper 40’s.
