Late Saturday night, I wandered into Spice in the East Village for dinner. For some odd reason, I forgot that I was ordering for only two and ordered one appetizer and three entrees....and a bottle of wine. Who drinks wine with Thai?? Not sure why I decided that was a good idea. Anyhow, it became later and later and there was still a ton of food on the table and a half bottle of wine left. The waitress eventually came over after seeing me eye how much wine was left and asked if I wanted to take the wine to go! I don't know if she was just being gracious, as Thai people are known to be, or if she really just wanted me out of there so she could clean up and go home. Probably the latter. But of course said yes. She popped the cork back in, put the bottle in a bag and handed it to me with the rest of the leftover food. I thought the whole thing was hilarious and will definitely go back just to see if they will still let me to go wine. How great would it be if all restaurants started doing that??
