Mr. Penegre - just so you'll

Mr. Penegre - just so you'll know, the colorfully-dressed table of four you served last Friday night around 7pm - we ordered two bottles of wine, the Mediterranean Trio, escargot and a cheese plate- we stopped in your cafe BEFORE heading down to see the Yellow Dub-Marine performance at the Downtown Concert Series. As were two of the other tables seated in your dockside lounge - we saw those couples at the concert as well.

And, for the record, immediately following the downtown concert, six of us visited the Dock Street Oyster Bar -as we have for four of the last five Friday evenings- where we ran up a $165 bar tab and enjoyed just over $180 worth of apps, raw oysters and clams on the half shell. All before spending $24 a couple for our cab ride home.

I'm sorry if you feel like the downtown concert crowd isn't moseying all the way down to your end of the Riverwalk to enjoy your food - shame, 'cause you should try advertising to the crowd like some of the other restaurants do. Honestly, I don't see how you think warm beer and BBQ can be competing with your French fare menu.

Also, you may want to reconsider promoting the upcoming Riverfest on your business website. You've seen the dozens of food vendors and beer trucks that line up for that festival, correct?

You can't have it both ways, sir.
