It's leap day, February 29, 2012. We have one friend that we know of who is celebrating his birthday on the real day....Happy Birthday to you, Max!
Four years ago, a perhaps once-in-a-lifetime opportunity happened for us here at Heston's. That is the day that we were part of an article that was published in the New York Times. We knew only a couple of weeks in advance that this was to happen, and at that time, the actual date wasn't certain. In the end, it was leap day, and forever more that will help my memory. When the days come and go each year, it's hard to remember specifics. But when it happens on a day that only rolls around every four years, well, that I can manage to recall.
It was a great article, and it did generate a lot of calls. Many were from old friends and guests who had read it, and called to check in and catch up. That was my favorite part of our fifteen minutes of fame. I always love hearing from people. I don't know that we actually got any reservations from New Yorkers, but perhaps we picked up some from other folks who read it closer to our home.
At any rate, the beauty of the internet means that we can just click a link and voila! There it is again, all ready for us to read and remember it. So if you missed it the first time around, here you go....the day Heston's Lodge made it into the New York Times!
