To the staff of Bar Six,
As you may remember, I recently had lunch at your lovely, quaint bistro. My girlfriend Liz and I popped in for a quick midday meal with our three adorable children (ages 1 – 3). You found us a perfect table with two high chairs and space to park our strollers. You also may remember my 3 year-old daughter Dylan whined and sobbed because she wanted to sit at a DIFFERENT table. Isn’t she just darling when she gets all passionate about something? We just love that girl’s spirit.
Right away, let me apologize for a few things that might have dropped (or perhaps were thrown with great fanfare and gusto) onto the floor.

While we’re on the topic, let me apologize for those same items being thrown two and three more times on the ground. Frankly, there is just no excuse for that.
I know 20 month-old Henry feels just awful about ripping apart your paper table cloth, and then drenching it with water. You all were so kind to hurry over with a new one.
And you certainly were right that the turkey burger takes a bit of time for preparation. I explained that repeatedly to 1 year-old Summer but I’m not a 100% sure that she got it. Perhaps that explains her immediate and vocal need to get out of the high chair before the food arrived. That Summer has a lot of spunk too.
I only wish we had kept things more contained. It seems we started using the adjacent table to hold some of our stuff and as a resource to constantly replenish our napkins and flatware.
Please also pass on our apologies to your other patrons, who just seemed to find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. I’m sure they were quite surprised by the amount of time it takes to pack up three children and head out into the rain. Of course, I’m just so sorry for Dylan’s shrieking as we headed out the door. That girl has never been a fan of the plastic rain cover. At home, we always use tinfoil. Not a scrap of Saran Wrap in the apartment.
In the end, it really is hard to believe that we were only there for an hour. I’m sure you received our generous tip. But somehow it just doesn’t seem enough. To express our gratitude even more deeply, we promise to never come back. We hope this is sufficient thanks. If not, let me know and we will send more money.
