My husband is the bestest

Why? Well, lots of reasons, but there is one in particular that has shot him to the top of my cool peeps list this morning.

It takes an act of God and/or luck to actually get a reservation at a certain restaurant in Napa, even in this economy. I had my heart set on going there for my big 3-0, but I was only able to get on the wait list and Jim never got through via the phone, period. The concierge at the hotel where we're staying hasn't had any luck, either.

Instead, Jim randomly went on Open Table and after several failed attempts, they finally showed a 9pm reservation for the night of my birthday. So, where will we be dining in 2 months?

Here:

I'm so damn excited I could just squeal.


Oh wait, kind of already doing that!!!!

  3. That's awesome! I was thinking about restaurants for one nice dinner out while we're home, and just for the hell of it checked some random night in about 2 weeks...and they had a 9pm reservation. Maybe the recession is making people reluctant to spend even on Thomas Keller? We won't be going on this trip (couldn't quiiiite justify the cost without any special occasion like a big birthday), but I'm looking forward to a full report from you!

  4. 1) How exciting! It's one of the few restaurants I've heard of that actually lives up to ALL the hype. You're going to love it.

    2) I had the WEIRDEST dream about you last night that involved you painting your entire house to look like a school room on crack (blackboard walls, pink framed doorways, green floors) to throw a killer party - everything was purple, green, pink, and people were talking about what a great party you throw for weeks after.
