Disney World’s Newest Restaurant Plan Is Literally Out of This World

  Disney World’s Newest Restaurant Plan Is Literally Out of This World <p>Guests at Walt Disney World’s Epcot can already eat in countries as far-flung as Norway, Morocco, and Japan, but soon, they'll be able to eat in outer space.</p>Guests at Walt Disney World’s Epcot can already eat in countries as far-flung as Norway, Morocco, and Japan, but soon, they'll be able to eat in outer space.

Most restaurants would assume these notes would never get out, until now. Hannah Goldfield, an author for The New Yorker, was accidentally sent a spreadsheet from a mystery restaurant with over 30,000 entries about their never-ending A-list guests .

Here are a few takeaways from this epic Twitter thread:

• The spreadsheet included notes on VIPs like Ryan Seacrest, Fran Drescher, Gillian Anderson, “Meryl Streep’s nephew,” “Danielle Steele’s daughter,” and “Ricky (from Ricky’s).”

• In addition to notes about celebrities, the hosts also added some messages about people who are definitely not VIPsincluding: “He is a prod. asst (PA) on films. He thinks he is more important than he really is. The p.a. is the lowest rung on the production ladder.” Another note reads, simply, “jersey jersey jersey.”

• The crew at the restaurant had to call the cops on November 4 to chase down a guest who skipped out on a $2,000 bill for a 20-person dinner.

• One particularly pesky guest “likes to vape at the table” and throw random parties. This gentleman is typically late for his reservation and is “always a problem per Michael.”

• A handful of guests have “86” notes next to their names, to indicate that they are no longer welcome at the restaurant after offenses like tipping $11 on a $200 tab and ripping off part of a couch

Man accidentally shoots nail into his heart, and lives

  Man accidentally shoots nail into his heart, and lives A Wisconsin man working on his house accidentally shot a nail into his heart and lived to tell about it. Doug Bergeson was trying to finish framing up the fireplace on the home he's building. "I was just bringing the nail gun forward and I was on my tip-toes and I just didn't quite have enough room and it fired before I was really ready for it," Bergeson said.The three-and-a-half inch framing nail fired straight into his heart at the speed of a .22 bullet."It didn't really hurt.

Assume A-listers really occupy the ‘in’ at the most exclusive Hollywood restaurants ? assume again. Restaurants across the globe are known to employ systems like OpenTable which allow guests to manufacture reservations, but most importantly

Case in point: This weekend, New Yorker writer Hannah Goldfield intercepted an accidental leak of a guest notes spreadsheet from an unnamed celebrity hot spot, and many of these notes are hilariously strange.

Perhaps the best note of the entire thread: “We accommodated a last minute 12 top NO PRIX FIXE for Will Smith. And she lied, it was a bunch of random people and he did not come AND THEY WERE LATE.”

Goldfield remarks that this spreadsheet has over 30,000 notes on guests. The identity of the restaurant remains a mystery, but if you have any guesses — or any other great stories about POS notes concerning celebrities and/or wannabe VIPs — please share them in the comments of this post.

Element 1: <p><strong>Don’t pester the host<br></strong>Yes, you’ve been waiting 12 minutes for a table, and the host told you it would be 10. It sucks. But they can’t do anything about the other diners taking their sweet time with dessert. (You wouldn’t want someone rushing you through your tiramisu, would you?)</p><p><strong>Be ready to order at the same time<br></strong>If someone at your table needs an extra minute or two to decide, that’s totally OK.

Lazy Bear is not your average restaurant. You sit where you're told, eat what's put in front of you, and make polite conversation with strangers throughout the meal. And for a seat at San Francisco's most exclusive supper club, you leave nearly $300 on the table.Founded in 2009, Lazy Bear started out as an underground supper club in the home of chef-owner David Barzelay. The lawyer-by-training invited his friends to feast, but the guest list quickly snowballed as word spread of his unique dining experiences.
