Bar La Grassa vs a Twittering Shmuck [Moved from Minneapolis-St. Paul]

Whiny wanna-be can't get a table and lies about the experience via Twitter:

  1. Why in the world would BLG says no to AMEX concierge services other than the obvious - no available tables without bumping someone else. So what this jerk is asking is that someone else be denied a table so his party can dine at their preferred time.

    Anyone with a twitter account should respond with a reference to the Strib article. (if you can, I don't have a twitter account and don't know the features).

    Hats off to BLG for treating their customers fairly.

      The twittering schmuck is none other than Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels of the Biggest Loser fame. I hope BLG sues him for libel.

    2. I've been trying to get into Bar La Grassa for some time. I missed a reservation a couple weeks ago by 30 minutes because of interstate closing. Someone else got our table, and they were unwilling to bump someone else for me and my pregnant wife. I respected them for that decision. And the fact they didn't let this guy in makes me feel even better about missing the reservation.

      This Bob guy sounds like a loser.

      1. whoa look at all of those responses to rick nelson's article! boy, i guess the natives really don't care for the entitled la d-listers douchebag types! love this town. :) cheers to chef becker and nancy and their staff, they run good restaurants.

        1. Read the article and some of the comments. I always liked Minnesotans, but now I like them even more.

          1. Wow! such conceit from the "celeb". Good for the resto for not bumping anyone for him, and for letting people know what really happened! LOVE the responses to the article!

            I seriously don't get the twitter thing - I can't imagine being that interested in the minutiae of someone else's life to follow someone's tweets - I'm not even that interested in my own minutiae! lol
