Administrative Professionals Day: BLT, Casa Juancho, Fontainebleau, and Islas Canarias
Today the nation celebrates those who copy, fax, and man (or woman) the phones. What was once Secretaries Day (renamed Administrative Professionals Day in 2000 to accommodate politically correct sensibilities) is now time to be nice to your assistant. BLT Steak at the Betsy Hotel is celebrating with a promo offer of 50 percent off lunch for said assistant with homemade madeleines for dessert.
Assistants, this is the time to go for
the "lobster cobb" ($29) and 22-ounce rib eye ($49); don't let
those bosses get off easy with a chicken and sun-dried tomato panini
($14). As a parting gift, BLT offers a $20 certificate valid
anytime through May 31, so let's hope those administrative professionals are paid enough to afford a future visit to BLT.
Lunch service runs from 11:30 a.m. to
2:30 p.m., so boss, buzz that hard-working assistant outside your office on the
intercom and say, "Reservation, lunch today, BLT." Order a bottle of
red and let those dirty secretary fantasies fly.
You'll also find specials at the Fontainebleau, where a "quickie massage" or "speedy yet effective facial" will ensure a timely return from lunch at La Côte. Or stop by Casa Juancho in Little Havana from 1 to 3 p.m., when pianist Leo Guerrero will play Latin tunes. If you just can't spare your sidekick today for lunch hour, get that admin a gift certificate to Islas Canarias. Miami New Times is making an offer you can't refuse: $7 for $15 worth of food and drinks. And for those still in need of advice, here are some tips on what not to give.
