A：Anytime you invite people to a business meal, whether the group is large or small, call the restaurant and make reservations.
A：Did they know how many people you were bringing?
A：You should have asked Mr. Brown if he wanted to choose another restaurant.
A：When that happens, you end up with a group of cranky people. That's not good for business.
A：What did you do while you waited for your table last night?
A：Did you ask if you could wait in the bar and order everyone a drink and some hors d'oeuvres?
C： Mr. Brown很懂行，他提议先到酒吧去，还问服务员能不能给我们每人一杯免费的酒水。
A：That was the thing to do since the restaurant made a mistake in not taking a reservation for the large group. Even with reservations, if your group has to wait long time, you should politely ask for some sort of compensation.
A：You should have requested the bartender or his staff to carry the drinks, considering the kind of restaurant it was. At a casual place, you are expected to take your own.
A：Next time ask the bartender to add the bar bill to your dinner tab.
A：Whenever you entertain people over meals, insist on reservations. If your table is not ready, offer your guests a drink at the bar. Ask the bar staff to carry your unfinished drinks to the table and to add the bar bill to your final tab.
