    yeah... I'm tired of monitoring... it's a very bad productivity killer.

    I don't know what to say. I mean you want tickets to a very in-demand restaurant but you don't want to play "the game." I guess you can see if they have reserved seats for American Express concierge customers (a la French Laundry, Per Se).

    Uh... they do NOT. They are not a fan of dealing with Amex Plat. Concierge either, as it turns out.

    subscribing because I would like to know for future knowledge.

    edit: saw a post on facebook that said November tickets didn't become available until around 4.

    I really wonder how many are tied up before the release even happens.

    Do they sell out the instant they are posted or are you trying to get a specific date?

    Weird- what is up with the price variation between nights?

    Not looking to go in december (hope to sometime though) but it is nice to know that it doesn't really seem that difficult as long as you pay attention on the sale day.

    Can't find a single day (30+minutes after your post) where I wouldn't be able to get a table of any size although some nights have a little more time flexibility.

    yeah - seems way easier than next

    Price variation is perfect - high demand is higher price. Makes perfect sense.

    Ahh sort of looks like they base the price on number of remaining tables. I clicked on a $200 table just to see what the total after tax/tip would be and noticed that after I pulled those seats, the price for that same time slot jumped up to $210 or $225.
