Yesterday, Mr. Sheet Metal had the pleasure of meeting Bobby Flay, the celebrity chef, at his restaurant, Mesa Grill. Karen Coppins, Snips' production manager, had the misfortune of being hit with a butter knife dropped by a patron sitting in the mezzanine (Don't worry; she wasn't injured).
After a little beer was dropped on our table by another upstairs patron, the manager sent out Flay himself to apologize.
It made Karen's day. Mr. Sheet Metal was only somewhat impressed.
The restaurant's spiral ductwork, however, was divine.
