Valentine's Day dinner reservations are currently the hottest commodity in every city in America (and if you don't have one yet, well, there's always PF Chang's). For those folks who took a bit too long to agree on a spot they both liked and subsequently missed out on their chance to snag a table, there isn't much to do -- except buy a reservation from Alex Tillman. The St. Louis "entrepreneur" made V-Day dinner reservations at 15 spots around the city months in advance, and is now selling them on Craigslist for $29 a pop.
The restaurants -- and booking service OpenTable -- aren't too thrilled about Tillman selling their tables without their permission, and have sent him disparaging emails and spoken scathingly about his business practices in local newspapers. If all 15 reservations were bought, Tillman would stand to collect $435; he's apparently heard from "dozens" of interested parties, but the Craigslist post eventually had to be taken down to avoid controversy.
