Beating The System

To avoid waiting in line at restaurants like white hot Szechuan eatery Chengdu Taste in Alhambra, Daily Dish suggests using the website TaskRabbit, where people can post (and assign a price to) tasks they need accomplished. Writer Tenny Tatusian paid an extra $35 to have a woman arrive early and put a name on Chengdu's wait list, and decides, "Add $35 for TaskRabbit and the evening's bill came to $125, or $42 each. That extra $12 for waiting only five minutes and getting a start on Saturday errands, not to mention the weekend's drinking, was worth it." [DD]
