UM. I was trying to search “is it normal to take credit card information to make a reservation?” but these are other questions for which I coincidentally also needed answers.
Sidebar: Is it normal to take credit card information to make a reservation? It kind of creeps me out but I’m in charge of plans for a friend’s birthday tonight. Help!

I’m not usually much of a whiner when it comes to bad service (mostly because during my stint at the Oakhurst pub, I might have rivaled the worst), but last night at The Morgan, damn.
I dug the $5 pints, draught selection and overall vibe, for sure. But the sour-faced bartender left something to be desired. When Tex and I came by for a round last night, she immediately asked us to scoot down a stool for no apparent reason. She then went on to ignore us for the rest of the night with intermittent scowling and breaks to shoot scotch with the other patrons—to whom she consistently presented with a coy, slack grin and a cheery tone. Bitch.
I can’t bring myself to not tip or even worse—leave coins—and I know I’ll be back to The Morgan because it is so close to my apartment, but I guarantee I’ll voluntarily sidle down the bar to a different whiskey wench should Grumplestein be on patrol again.
And today was the day I joined Yelp…
Today at work I had to research women-centric magazines to create a list. While scanning Parenting, a teaser jammed a hook in my eyeball. It read:
Breastfeed Like Beckham: Not only does soccer superstar David Beckham emotionally support wife Victoria’s decision to breastfeed new baby daughter Harper, he does so physically, too. Read More
Hell yes I was going to read more. I mean, what the fuck? Sadly the story was really about how Posh Spice gets sleepy sometimes or something and David will hold the baby to her tit for arms-free breastfeeding. I would say I’m relieved but honestly I’m just a little disappointed.
Just another case of the mega-misleading headline built off of a cheap pun.
