Restoration Hardware, Home to First-Ever RH Restaurant, Has Disastrous Debut

Hopefully they didn't ruin the furniture.

Everybody's buzzing about the disastrous opening party for Restoration Hardware (now known as "RH"), with one wag Tweeting that it "will go down as one of the all-time worst planned events in Boston party history," per the BBJ. Oh dear. Would this have happened at IKEA?

The police ended up shutting down the party due to overcrowding, and many people couldn't even make it in the door to dine on mini lobster rolls and Bellinis, which were flown in from Cipriani in New York, notes the Herald.

Which begs the question: Shouldn't they have had their own on-site restaurant cater the bash?
