Howdy! This week im turning 30, so Friday night its on. Dinner @ Fette Sau@ 8pm, drinks @ spuyten duyvil @ 930, parts unknown later on. Rsvp for dinner only.
from a 323 phone number, Tuesday, March 11, 5:21 PM

OMG these places are in Brooklyn! I could totally ATTEND this guy's 30th birthday party! How amazing would that be, if I just showed up at this Williamsburg restaurant tomorrow night at 8 PM and was like, "What? You invited me. I have the text right here."

The intended Leila must also live in NYC. Do you think she could possibly be my DOPPELGANGER? If I show up for dinner and drinks, people will mistake me for her? Hilarity will ensue?

If only I knew 323's NAME! I can't just show up at Spuyten Duyvil tomorrow and say, "Hey. Is there a 30th birthday party happening around here?"

But I really, really want to.

Oh, you can. I've done that before. I'm not saying it won't be awkward, but you can do it. Maybe if you brought a card?

You absolutely should. I mean, after all the inconvenience, The Leila Texts might as well get you into a party. Besides, Fette Sau makes some delicious barbecue.

Did I mention I was dying to know what happened?

(you have the makings of a TONY column 10 times better than anything Julia Allison can come up with)

Show up with a box all wrapped up in fancy paper saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY all over it - the waiters will point you in the right direction and then you can just sit at a table close by and wait for the elusive Leila to appear.

Then skulk away with your fancily wrapped empty box and pretend your date didn't show up.

You could even strike up a conversation - "oh its your birthday too? I'm waiting for my friend its her birthday. Oh me? My name is Leila - yours too - NO WAY - what a small world."
