Pilgrim Exiles / Old Stone House / Hand-Carved Sculptures of Hippopotami — December 6 – 8, 2022

ULC Logbook, Thursday, December 8th, 2022:

We started with 70 covers (the total includes the Clubroom dinner party, but does not include the Clubroom lunch party, nor the dinner parties in the Ballroom, nor Sherman Room). Three parties cancelled, for a total loss of 9 covers. We were joined by the following walk-in parties: 2 at 6:15PM (drinks and apps only, in the Clubroom); 3 at 6:40PM. We finished with 70 guests (the total includes the Clubroom dinner party, but does not include the Clubroom lunch party, nor the dinner parties in the Ballroom, nor Sherman Room).

We had one order of takeout, placed by web, for Yale’s honorable Professor B.

For BA’s, we were joined by: M G, head of finance for Yale School of Management (party of 6, tbl. 5); G P, head of St. Thomas Day School (party of 5, tbl. 16); H F, Yale Law School (party of 5, tbl. 17); L H (party of 4, tbl. 24); ladies night out with the H’s (party of 4, tbl. 13); the A’s, celebrating the 23rd anniversary of their first date at the ULC (party of 2, tbl. 1).

For lunch, in the Clubroom, we were joined by L Law Firm with approx. 25 guests, hosted by M N.

For dinner, in the Clubroom, we hosted 13 guests from Saybrook College, for a RALC menu, hosted by A M G.

In the Sherman Room, we welcomed approx. 20 guests from Yale School of Management for the, “Yale Academic Design Camp,” dinner, hosted by E L.

In the Ballroom, we served approx. 25 guests from the Yale University Art Gallery, for the, “James Green Dinner,” hosted by L L.

Joan G, who fortunately dined with us this past weekend, unfortunately, had left behind a small gift bag containing two hand-carved sculptures of hippopotamuses / hippopotami (either pluralization is probably acceptable) in the women’s washroom. Ms. G was overjoyed to learn that her hippos had been found and were in now the care of the front desk (luckily, we are animal lovers).

She please requests ULC’s assistance with returning them to her in Massachusetts: Ms. G asks that we mail her the hippo sculptures, using standard USPS for shipping, pay the shipping with her CC, and then email her a receipt for what it cost. I have Ms. G’s CC information and email address at the front desk, with the clearly labelled bag of hippos.

Please let me know if there is a best practice / preferred procedure, and if not, I plan on mailing them from the Guilford Post Office before work one day this weekend.

Regarding her dinner, Ms. G commented: “PLEASE thank the entire team on our behalf. We had SUCH a fabulous time dining at the ULC last weekend. We just wish we lived closer!” Something tells me those hippos may have the same wish!

Tercia S (party of 2, tbl. 4, served by J K) commented: “It was a FANTASTIC 50th anniversary dinner. Thank you for making it perfect!” Bravo to J K, CF, RT, Chef G, Chef J, Chef W, Chef T, and the entire team!

J trained as a busser, his third ULC training shift, solo in the busser station.

C did not work his busser shift: additional investigation is required to determine what happened.

Fri. and Sat.: mostly sunny; highs mid-forties. Sun. and Mon.: chillier; cloudier; chance of PM snow showers.
