Honeymoon in B.C.

Thank you for a great report, Katie.

We arrived at Fresco about ten minutes late for our reservation, and even though I phoned ahead to let them know we were going to be late; the hostess did give our table away to another couple.  She said that the couple “wouldn’t take no for answer” even though there were several other tables in the restaurant; she also knew it was our wedding night.  I don’t want to dwell on the negatives because everything else was wonderful, and in the moment I didn’t let it bother me, but looking back, I can’t help but be a little irked!  Jamie had also sent over a bottle of wine to go with our dessert, and when that happened, the hostess came over and said, “Oh, when I found out Jamie had sent you over a bottle of wine, I just knew I had to come over and find out who this lovely couple was!!”  Guess I should have mentioned that I knew Jamie earlier!!  :wink:  Oh well… the rest of the evening was lovely so it definitely didn’t overshadow it! 

I'd be more than a little irked by such treatment.

Cheers,

Anne

I think I might have used a few strategic tears, and a very loud but piteous "BUT IT'S MY WEDDING DAY! AND YOU KNEW THAT!"

Shocking.

Agenda-free since 1966.

Lovely report Katie, and congratulations on your marriage. :smile:

Question for anyone who might have an answer, I'm curious about the Atlantic Salmon at Go Fish........ why Atlantic? :unsure:

Katie, what an amazing report and an amazing trip you had!

For those of you who haven't met her, Katie is about 90 pounds soaking wet; you'd never dream she could eat like that! :laugh:

I'm jealous! :raz:
