  • I like ALT2 a lot, but I think it needs the context of a year. I looked at the source, it's saying "for about $5 in the post-war years." Can we possibly pin that down? --valereee (talk) 17:20, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • ALT0 cited, but there are multiple estimates provided and sourced in the article. Not sure how to decide which number to use in this kind of case. --valereee (talk) 18:21, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • ALT1 partially cited. It doesn't mention the month in which Lundy said he'd shutter permanently, which we need in order to say that when it reopened in December it was just a few months later. --valereee (talk) 18:49, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
  • I'm wondering about a hook around the lobster bib, which was apparently invented by Lundy? To me that seems like it might be more interesting to a general audience than the three current ALTs. --valereee (talk) 18:51, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
    • @Valereee: thanks for starting the review. I added exact month in regards to ALT1, and when the $5 meal was offered in regards to ALT2. Could you check ALT3? epicgenius (talk) 23:37, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
Epicgenius, ALT2 now fully cited in the article, but we'll need to fit that context into the hook. I'm also wondering if we should either just take the 'cocktail' out or specify 'crab cocktail' or 'oyster cocktail', since cocktail alone is generally a drink. I don't think we'd need to say 'crab or oyster cocktail' like the source says, as it's clearly the diner's choice of the two. They could have that, which is what the alt says.
ALT1 approved.
ALT3...I was thinking the fact the restaurant owner invented them was the interesting part? Am I perceiving lobster bibs as more iconic than they are and their invention more interesting? To me that detail is literally the most interesting thing in the article. Yoninah do you have time/interest to provide an opinion on a lobster bib hook? --valereee (talk) 12:23, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
@Valereee: thanks for the additional comments. I revised ALT3 (that's the new ALT4) to reflect that the restaurant's owner created these "lobster bibs". I don't think in ALT2 that we need to specify that it is an either crab or oyster cocktail, because this might be too much info to put in the hook. I also did a QPQ. epicgenius (talk) 12:41, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg ALTs 1 and 4. Still not sure about ALT0, as there are three estimates in the article. 2800 is the middle, so it might be fine. ALT2 I still think needs context of time in the hook, but the cocktail thing may be okay. If the promoter prefers ALT0 or ALT2, ping me and we can continue to discuss, but I'm passing this for ALTs 1 and 4. --valereee (talk) 09:51, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
