Server: Thanks again for coming in tonight. Did you enjoy your evening?
Customer 1: Yes, very much!
Server: Great! If you’d like to share this experience with your co-workers or family, we’re taking reservations now for holiday parties and catering events. Do you have any plans?
Customer 2: I haven’t even thought about the holidays yet!
Server: I know what you mean, but we book up so quickly and I like to give our customers the first shot at our prime times.
Customer 1: You know, our Bunko group wanted to have an ornament exchange in early December. Maybe I should reserve a table now. There’ll be 12 of us.
Server: Great! Let me get you our hostess and we’ll make sure you have a great spot.
Customer 1: Thanks!
