As heard on: KGO AM 810, largest radio station in the Bay Area, 6:10 p.m. tonight, discussing Companies vow to party hearty: Hot spots ready to rock from last issue. It was fun, I did the interview from the presidential suite at the Ritz Carlton (five diamonds from AAA, kudos to them, and they even let me seal off the bedroom for the call), and I mentioned some new info from Kokkari, who are claiming more than 100 calls a day to reserve holiday banquet space. The folks at the Ritz told me if the holiday season were twice as long, they would still be booked up. KGO asked me about banquet prices, which I am clueless about, so I made up some numbers, which seem accurate, and segued into a mushier but better informed discussion about how Aqua is offering three courses for your banquet if you don't want six, and if you're on a tight budget you can do a holiday lunch instead of dinner. Then I had a martini on the balcony.
