Burt's Place Is Re-Opening!
Tue, 03/18/08 4:08 PM
Here it is folks, the message so many of you have been waiting for with an extra surprise to boot.
Burt is reopening on Wednesday, April 2, 2008!
The extra surprise is that I convinced him to do a semi-private gathering for Roadfood & LTHForum members on Tuesday, April 1st! A handful of folks have sent me private emails, asking about this possibility and I thought it would be a good way for Burt to get back into the swing of things before we open to the public.
Here are the details:
The store will be open from 5pm until 10pm.
Rather than doing “seatings”; dictating when you must come in, we will be open for you to come in whenever it is most convenient for you. However, so as to insure that we are not overwhelmed with any large groups all at once, and to insure that the most people can get in on this while waiting the least amount of time for a table, we are asking that you please post here with the number of people who will be attending and what time you would like to come in. Please do not walk in without posting here first.
If it becomes necessary, I will make slight adjustments to the schedule to make sure that we don’t overload the chef. After all, this is a 70 year old guy who is just getting back from triple bypass surgery. Let’s not kill him the first night he reopens! As we get closer to the April 1st date, I will post a schedule so everyone can see when they're coming in.
You don’t need to place an order here on the thread, but you will be encouraged to call your order in ahead of time on the day of the get-together. You can start calling as early as 3pm on the 1st.
We will be sticking strictly to pizzas, salads, garlic bread, and the usual appetizers; no grill work or pastas will be available. Everything will be at regular menu prices. If you’re going for the full cycle (pizzas, appetizers, etc.) please let Burt know everything when you call, and allow for time to eat your apps before the pizza comes out. For example, if you want to eat pizza at 6:30, you should plan on being there at about 6:10.
See you all on April 1st,
