So you're telling me I  can get a reservation at Dorsia?

jjorsett: Better yet, if you're the popular restaurant, put the reservations up for auction to the highest bidder. If people are willing to go to the trouble of writing scripts, then they probably would kick in an extra fifty or hundred to get a primo table and time.

But that's not cool in the Bay Area, you can't be seen flaunting wealth openly like that. Using technology to get ahead, that's hip.

It's a different kind of douchery up here my friends. :) A better kind, a more organic kind.

farkeruk: I don't want to eat anywhere that's described as a hot restaurant full of self-described foodies.

That's why you take ALL the reservations (from behind 7 proxies, of course), but only one in your real name. Then you can eat in an empty restaurant, devoid of self-proclaimed foodies.

Wow, the service here is great! They've got 3 waiters just for our table!!
