http://eater.com/archives/2012/03/05/how-to-get-a-reservation-at-talulas-table.php Twice in my life I have made reservations a year out for a restaurant. Once was the Herbfarm east of Seattle and, eleven months into the wait, there was a serious fire. We went anyway since our trip had been committed to and almost cried at the damage. The other time was Germany's most difficult reservation, Schwarzwaldstube in the Black Forest. We've now been twice and it was well worth the year's wait. Each time. Talula's Table sounds interesting. The most difficult reservation is New York's Rao's which is essentially a private club. The "old" Minibar (which still does not list their phone number) is ranked 5th.
Dogtown Maryland is a great kennel and training operation in Brandywine, MD. The owners, Craig and Cindy Jolly, are a former Air Force K9 trainer and current groomer, respectively. They are conscientious about the dogs they'll take (no aggressive dogs, nor dogs with extreme separation anxiety), and will do a "test run" with the dogs to see how they handle being kenneled there. They and their staff give each dog individualized attention, including two playtimes per day. Dog-friendly dogs are allowed to play together in their large play area, while non-dog-friendly dogs get separate play time. Each dog (or dogs, if multiples from the same family) gets its own "house" with a bed, a yard, and a webcam, if so desired. All for the entirely reasonable price of $30/day per dog. Matthew and I have been kenneling our Akitas (now Akita, singular) here since at least 2003. They are always happy, well-fed, and have had plenty of attention during their stay (Aki even gets to hang out in the office sometimes). At each pickup, Craig gives us a complete report on how the dogs were, including if they weren't eating or if they had/developed any symptoms to watch out for. Dogtown doesn't accept new Akitas and certain other breeds, so find out whether they take your breed. We're grateful they've continued taking Aki -- even though they're quite a haul from our house, the care they provide is unmatched.
