On the Day or Near the Day?
Do you really have to celebrate a holiday on the day?
Or can you celebrate near the day and be OK?
Like, if you try to get a reservation for two on valentines day odds are you will wait for a table. If you celebrate valentines day on the 13th or on the 15th you’ll more likely have an easier time getting a reservation for two.
Can you celebrate your birthday a day or two early or late? You might be able to wiggle more celebration time that way…
