An odd letter written by Warner LeRoy

Recommended Posts

Below is a signed letter by Warner LeRoy in response to what I would imagine was a guest's complaint about a bad dining experience at either Maxwell's Plum or Tavern on the Green. The letter is dated 1978 so his involvement with the operations of Great Adventure had already ended even though his stationary still sported "Great Adventure" in the footnote.

Rather interesting to say the least. I must have missed that footnote on my menus that state "all bread comes with complimentary cards"

How in the world do you guys find this stuff. That is a rather odd letter, yet somehow comforting.

Explanation

 

I worked for Warner Leroy in the early 80's.

 

Warner implemented a bread charge in those days of $2.00 per table. The breads were expensive seven grain and pumpernickel loaves from "Hot and Crusty" and Orwasher's bakeries.. The bread was put onto every table. The charge was automatically added to every guest check. The card on the bread refers to this charge being applied. Warner was saying The Department of Consumer Affairs required this notification. However, if a guest complained about the bread charge, the charge was removed.

 

The staleness of the bread wasn't related.
