We have a lounge regular that is a family member to one of our hosts. His family was in the other day and shared with one of our cocktail servers that they had just come from the hospital. They had been visiting Bill all day. He recently was moved to Beth Israel to have open heart surgery but it was delayed in the hopes of getting him stronger and better equipped to have a successful surgery. Many family members had joined the family after visiting and wanted to of course dine in their family favorite spot. Derry T-Bones. When they were winding down I went over to offer my condolences and support in hopes of Bill having a full recovery. We offered a gift certificate so they could all join us when Bill was ready and wanting his favorite meals again….or food from his favorite place but with some diet restrictions. They were grateful and we hope to hear soon how this week’s surgery went. I suggested dispersing the RAK cert. at one of the local hopitals or doctor’s offices as we have a lot of clientel from local offices. Either way, they were very pleased to know we were rooting for Bill and keeping him in our thoughts through this diffcult time.
