Alinea lovers, note the savings (still steep, but down from stratospheric) and now my OpenTable 1,000 points (essentially $10 savings) might require roller derby skills to squeeze in.

 

Oh well, I still have my goldstar, travelzoo, fillaseat, and costco restaurant gift cards and oh yeah, my Marriott Rewards Offers **.
