Some Tips About Eating Out.


I know at least a quarter of my close friends who saw the title of this post have their minds in a totally different direction than need be.  But as much as I hear I should give people my secrets about why I’m so good at it, let me assure you this post has nothing to do with cunnilingus.   What I was actually shooting for is the answer to the question: Is it rude to tweet about a luscious treacle tart at dinner? Or take a phone call when your starter is being served?  It’s an issue that has London divided in a Zagat London Restaurants survey released Wednesday that asked respondents to weigh on the issue.  According to the 5,500 diners answering the survey, 53 percent said it’s “rude and inappropriate” to text, tweet or talk on the phone while dining at the table.  A trans-Atlantic comparison reveals that the Brits — who have a historic reputation as the exemplification of etiquette and manners — are more forgiving than their American counterparts.  In Los Angeles, for example, more than half of Zagat readers — 67 percent — said it was rude to text and dine, while 64 percent of New Yorkers shared the same opinion.  Meanwhile, preserving your Michelin meal or epic triple-decker sandwich on camera was considered acceptable by the majority of diners, with 74 percent of Londoners saying it was “ok.”

Want A Date With Scarlett Jo?


Among the hundreds of lots on offer at Christie’s September wine auction in Hong Kong this month, there’s one in particular that will appeal to more than just wine lovers.  The winning bid for Lot No. 519 will receive a lunch date with Scarlett Johansson and six bottles of 100-year-old Moët et Chandon champagne packed in a special Louis Vuitton leather chest.  The lot is estimated to be worth 380,000 to 500,000 Hong Kong dollars (US$48,700 to $64,100). The proceeds of the sale will go to the Nature Conservancy in China.  Christie’s said that the idea behind the charity lot came from Moët et Chandon itself, which currently retains Ms. Johansson as a celebrity endorser.
