sorry to be a nudge - but if everything is already booked then what's the value of printing the menus?

She said the hotel and theme park restaurants are booked, not the DTD venues?
sorry to be a nudge - but if everything is already booked then what's the value of printing the menus? Re-read what I wrote above. I didn't provide the menus for the places that are booked out, I provided the menus for the four table service restaurants that are offering a special Valentine's Day menu AND still have space available.
