Reservations For the Lazy or Redial-Impaired

Of course we knew it would come to this. The recently launched website,, is selling special-occasion restaurant reservations in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. $40 buys you the rights to an already-reserved table for a specific number people at a specific date and time at a specific restaurant. Terms are non-negotiable. Currently available: Valentine's Day tables for two at Aquagrill, Cafe des Artistes, Mercer Kitchen et al. ?It?s not about convenience, it?s about desperation,? says company founder Doug James. We're not sure whether this is the best idea we've ever heard or the clearest sign yet that the decline of civilization is upon us. Probably both.
