According to the GM, the Pasta Pirate replacement restaurant might be open by Dec 28 or 29. We arrive on Christmas and asked our host to make us a reservation for Sunday, 12/28 if they are open. I'm not a big fan of trying a restaurant while they are still working out the kinks, but what the hell, it's a comp. I forgot to mention this in my brief TR. As part of the new contract signed, the Union allowed for the Pullman to reopen using non-union workers. Whether anything comes out of this concession remains to be seen. We always enjoyed the Pullman and I would love to see it reopen. A great dining room and the food and servers were always terrific. As a lifelong Union member, I'm sad over this, but the bargaining group agreed to it, so I'd try it.
