I remember all the fuss and furor when this first hit the fan.

Suggestion for others who find themselves in this situation — the communal mindset is extremely fickle, and once their initial white-hot enthusiasm (or hate) dies down and their next cause célèbre presents itself, that's pretty much it and things are going to go back to normal.  The "guy texting her from a Minneapolis area code" has undoubtedly already forgotten that he ever sent her an SMS.  And for whatever it's worth, he's probably never been in Virginia or had any intention of ever going there anyway, so the 'loss' of his patronage was something she never had in the first place.

What we are seeing here is like the aftermath of a wilderness wildfire.  It's all-consuming and disruptive as hell, but only for a short time — and if you are able to get through it, once it is over things return to equilibrium.  Nature repairs herself, and things come back as good as if not better than before.  With the help of her friends, both the ones she saw daily as well as the ones she never knew she had — the ones who sent letters and other signs of support, such as the purchase of gift certificates that will most likely never be used — she was able to weather the bit of hard times, and I for one am thankful of it.

Just one thing, though ... about the people who attempted to 'lock up' the restaurant with bogus reservations or torpedo its reputation with fake 'Yelp' reviews.  Back when I worked as a motel clerk, we used to take reservations and would agree to hold them — all night, if necessary — but said reservation had to be guaranteed with a major credit card; and our clearly-stated policy as part of the Best Western chain was that if you were a no-show your card would be charged for the cost of the room for the night.  Surely something like this — insisting on a credit card being provided and specifying that being a no-show or failure to cancel before a certain time would result in a charge on your card — would have nipped that in the bud.  After all, isn't this the same thing airlines do all the time with non-refundable ticketing?

And I've never read a Yelp review — not never, ever; and since I do know that they are left by the anonymous public, if I did I would give them about as much credence as I do the scribblings on the restroom wall.

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?
