Letter to Shorty's Restaurant, Holcomb, Missouri

Dear Shorty's Restaurant,

I was looking for an appropriate venue in which to celebrate my club's 5 year anniversary and then it hit me - what better place to have it than Shorty's in Holcomb, Missouri.
We will need a table for 17 people in which to host the Mighty Missouri Midgets Club 5th Anniversary Dinner. Would it be possible to fit us in your fine establishment? We don't take up much room.

Before I make my booking I want to make sure we can make this happen, so one quick question. Although we are small, we do like to pretend that we are normal sized (especially on occasions such as 5th Anniversary dinners. Do you think it will be possible to lower your tables for the night? Preferably to around say two and a half feet off the ground. Obviously, that means the chairs will have to be shortened as well. We are of course willing to pay for all costs incurred in the shortening of said tables and chairs. I am also willing to pay a bonus of $500 on top of all other costs. I love seahorses!

Alternatively, of course we could just bring our own booster seats but I feel that takes away from the party atmosphere. (Plus, children tend to stare)

Also, is there a set price for a party of 17?

We are hoping to have our dinner the week of September 6th ( anytime night that week will suit).

Please let me know about the tables and chairs as soon as you can as we must find a place for our party quickly.

Thank you so much Shorty's Holcomb.

I look forward to your speedy reply.

Dear Peggy,

Thank you so much for your interest in having your clubs anniversary dinner at Shorty's. We would be more than happy to accommodate you but unfortunately we would not be able to lower the tables and chairs. The sections that we have to seat larger parties is half booth and half table so even if we were able to lower the tables and chairs we are unable to lowers the booths.

To answer your second question, there is no set price for a party of 17. You would be able to order from the regular menu. Items rage from $4.99 for a house salad to $18.99 for a steak dinner with menu prices ranges in between.

Please let me know if this works for you and if it does we can talk further about an exact date and time. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns, I can be reached at this e-mail address or at 603-625-1730.

Thank you again

My Best

Dear Erica,
Thank you so much for your anything but tardy reply.

I am very excited about having our Mighty Manchester Midgets Club 5th Anniversary Dinner at Shorty's and so are the other club members. It is a shame that you are unable to lower your tables and chairs for the night, but understandable. We will all be sure to bring our booster seats on our party night. Is it possible for you to give me the measurements from the chair seat ( where bottom is placed) to the table (very top of table)? This will ensure that we all bring the correct height booster seats.

Also, what are you tables made of? One of our members is allergic to wood (not all woods- just teak, redwood, balsa and pine). If you could please advise me of the tables materials before I book that would be fabulous.

One last question. On your menu is says: 'Kids 5 & Under Eat Free!!!'. Is this referring to being 5ft and under? All members of our club are under 5ft. In fact, we are all 4'10 and under, well under the 5ft height you state. Does this mean all 17 of us will be able to eat free?

Thank you very much Erica for being so accommodating.

We are incredibly pleased to finally be able to celebrate with you and everyone at Shorty's.
I look forward to your reply.

Hello Peggy,
To answer your question about height, from chair to table top is 12.25 inches and from booth seat to table top is 11 inches.
As for the type of wood the tables and chairs are made of, we know there is no teak, redwood or balsa, and we do not believe there is any pine. They are dark wood tables and we believe that is oak and and maple or cherry but they do have a light wood trim and I can not guarantee absolutely that there is no pine.
As for your last question, I am not sure where you read that kids under 5 eat free, as we do not have a promotion of that kind. We do have a kids night when kids meal prices are reduced but it is for kids 12 and under. So unfortunately that would not apply!
Hope this information helps you out and I looking forward to hearing back from you!
