Gemma still tempting us to take all their table settings and run as if we just didn't steal something

Back on Friday, we dedicated a post to how easy it would be to borrow place settings and what not from Gemma at the Bowery Hotel ... only, of course, if we were the type of people to borrow table settings from hotel eateries...

Anyway! We walked by Sunday morning, and found the tables and set up with zero adult supervision...



Also, thanks to our friend Esquared for passing along a City Room link at the Times... J. David Goodman used our post as a jumping off point for a piece on the great responsibility that comes with great weather. As he writes:

While there’s no data in the post to show that cutlery et al. are not routinely pilfered from these tables, the very fact that it’s all laid out there nonchalantly seems to prove, not that New York restaurateurs are reckless, but rather that we pedestrians are just not that larcenous as a group.

I've got more than enough plates and forks, so am waiting for a pitcher of margaritas to come out...

The chip baskets at Mary Ann's are easy-pickings, too.

Maybe that's why Mary Ann's closed briefly last week...? Ran out of baskets....
