Well, hmpf. Turns out that because this was going to be on a Sunday, the "brunch" that the restaurant offers means that my menu would only be served for the evening. A fact which was unmentioned to me until I called to confirm it with the restaurant. So all of the people that I told to reserve for lunch, would have arrived expecting to try my menu but instead been told that it wasn't available. Adding insult to injury, when my wife called to see about a reservation, she was told that the menu isn't available for lunch, but would be there for dinner, however, a friend called to reserve for lunch, and was told the opposite - that the menu would be available for lunch but not dinner.
So I cancelled the whole thing. Not all is lost, however, because the guy who owns the bar that I sometimes cook for (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/19965
) said he'd be happy to have me cook whatever it was I was going to cook for them, for lunch. And in seeing opportunity where some might see defeat, now we're trying to work out a monthly pop-up brewpub concept, that would be an ongoing thing. Pretty neat!
