Making Cajun lemonade
Yesterday, we went and published the wrong phone number for the print edition of the Silk Road review. The phone number we had in there was for the subject of the previous Monday's review, Ethel & Ramone's.
For once it wasn't anything I had done, but I understood instantly how it happened.
Ed Bloom at Ethel & Ramone's told me he's fielded about six dozen calls intended for Silk Road Bistro. Here's what he told me he's been telling the caller:
"No, this is not the Silk Road, the wrong number is printed in the paper. I'm sorry for your trouble, though, and if you ever come to Ethel & Ramone's, I'll give you a complimentary appetizer. But please call the Silk Road now, because they deserve your business, too."
Silk Road Bistro's phone number is 410-878-2929
Ethel & Ramone's phone number is 410-664-2971
