NEW YORK LETTER
New Yorkran. 28. Ever since' the,
Cafe de u Opera Darrea-gems' not m
evening attire and" ""subsequently
busted, hotel nd restaurant pro
prietors have had a great dread of
drawing any such line between sheep
Which explains ah experience a
man from the "West had at the new
est, biggest and gorgeoiisest of Man
hattan's caravans eries.
The man, whonrwe will call Blobbs,
because that is not' Tais "name, came
to town on a business trip;, bringing
no soup-and-fish scenery with him.
The firsti "evening he was, in New
York he asked a business associate to
dine with, fiim.
Blobbsf desiring to. ; bestow the
once-over on whatever of pulchritude
might be: on view in the magnificent
main dining-room of the Hotel, de
signed to take his Iriend into that
very room for dinner. But, having
ah idea that there might be some re
striction as to attire, he, called the
desk on the 'phone from his room.
"Does jone have to wear evening
clothes to eat jh the main dining
room?" he asked. . . .
"Oh, no," replied the clerk. "Noth
ing like that!"
So Blobbs and friend went straieht i
into- the main diningroom-and were
shooed straight- out again by the
head waiter, who told them they
couldn't eat in there,, "because they
weren't accompanied by ladies."
After they had, eaten in the grill,
Blobbs and his friend returned to the
main diningroom just to have a peek
at its, glories and its dam.es. . They be
held numerous gents, utterly with
out ladies all, it was noted, . in even
ing togs. . '
Sb Blobbs returned to his room,
again called the desk on the 'phone,
reminded the clerk otwhat he had
been told, and told him what he had
just seen. "Ndw on the level," de
manded Blobbs;'"wasn't I barred out
because I was'n'tuin evening clothes
andiJot because, there were no ladies
in "my party?"
Yes?'. admitted the clerk, "that's
really ; it.- ;Bu: what-the head waiter
ought "to have done was to tell you
that allithej tables., were taken, in
stead osayi arising about either
ladies or-evenfeg-ctot6es." ,
Blobbs hasn't ifiecided yet whose
fabrication he tefgjrs, the head
waiter's or the clerJjjsv
