Tweet of the Week: A Delightful Halloween Treat from The French Laundry

Fairytales can come true. It can happen to you — if you follow The French Laundry on Twitter. Even though it was Halloween, this was no trick. Thomas Keller’s legendary dining mecca released a full day of reservations on OpenTable, and a bunch of fortunate and fast foodies seized the opportunity. Congratulations to everyone who scored a table; you are definitely in for a treat!

This sweet tweet from diner Amy (aka @NoMeatballs) made our week! We’re so very glad to power your dinner reservations. But, we have to ask, Amy — why no meatballs?

Tweet of the Week: OpenTable Gets a Shout-Out on The CW’s Beauty and the Beast

OpenTable has gotten a few nods in popular culture (Chuck, for one). Diner and Beauty and the Beast watcher Carla M. (aka @misscarla715) tipped us off to the very latest. You can tune in to see it for yourself here (it comes up at the 4:50 mark). Thanks, Carla M. for sending the Tweet of the Week, and thanks to the clever writers of Beauty and the Beast for the name-check!

Tweet of the Week: Restaurants Reach More Diners with Holiday + Seasonal Promotions

Believe it or not, the holiday season is almost here. We’ve got Thanksgiving in Canada on Monday. And, Thanksgiving comes to the states on November 28– as does Hannukah (a convergence being called Thanksgivukkah, according to The Wall Street Journal), followed by all of the fun of Christmas and New Year’s Eve. If you’re a planner like I am, you’re probably already giving a lot of thought to your holiday dining. At OpenTable, we try to make it easy for diners to find a terrific table for every holiday through special promotion pages. We urge our restaurant partners to share their information on their holiday and seasonal offerings early and often, just like the folks at The Russian House in Austin, Texas (aka @RussianHouseATX) have. Restaurants can easily and quickly join these free promotions and reach more holiday diners by visiting Restaurant Center.
