This is news? Rich people showing their arrogance by demanding the same table and restaurant owners bending over backwards to kiss their ass? If I go there, we still have the same bill, but I guess they are worth more than me. "All animals are created equal, but some are more equal than others". F them.

The Denny Hecker table. He should be eating off a plastic tray at Stillwater Prison. Oops, they don't take reservations. Or do they?

And this is news worthy why? I have to agree with Shawn, good places to avoid. No thanks, I will go where the working class goes for good and affordable food and know that my hard earned money is geeting the best value.

Talking like someone is better than you in these days is such a turn off. I have my favorite place to go,but no one is better than me. I seen the list of places and I will not be going to any of them. This was a arrogant thing in the Pioneer Press. Have you all have nothing better than to write about. Lets have better news than this.Turned OFF

Wow, Phyllis Diller ate at Pazzaluna a few years ago? I'm just so impressed. I wonder if they would serve me, a mere mortal. Wait a minute, is she still alive?

It's the lead article on the website because Thursday's PP contains the EAT section. Pretty simple logic, and it happened last week too.

Prepare yourself now for next Thursday.

Great news story. Can we next be told where Brad and Angeline like to sit when they come to town. Gee I am dying to know.

Since seating is so important and such a newsworthy event. Mr, Mrs, or MISS reporter. I did not bother to read the name nor will I. I prefer a table that is clean, and far from children that have childish parents that can not keep them quite in the restaurant. Gee can you print this also? You can use my name.

How precious of this DFL millionaire bunch. I hope the waiter spits in their water.

Congratulations PP. You have sunk to a new low. This article is almost as bad as the one on the idiot Franken and the Perry Mason episode.

Money still talks. Its pretty sad when someone with money thinks so hightly of themselves that they have to have special treatment. Even with all that money they are still very insecure that they have to have a special to sit and be noticed. I dont think I will every go to the resturants mentioned except for Mancinnis which no matter who you are your treated the same.
They may get a front seat here on earth but there money wont by them heaven and they may be waiting in line for a long time.

My father-in-law has "his" seat at the Bonanza in St. Cloud. He prefers to have his back to the wall, just like Sam Kaplan from the story.

Of course, he usually mutters something about "Charlie" (Vietcong) coming for him as well.
