If you look really closely at the standing glass, there is a ring in it.  The
intention of the scene is that the guest showed up, saw the ring and walked
away.  The host finished their champagne and left in disgust.  Probably should
have taken the ring back, but who's thinking clearly at that point?  :-)

I've noticed many of the newer restaurants I have gone to lately are more
dark-themed.  The kitchier ones have plaster that lets the brick show through in
various places, but I wanted to focus on the actual bricks in this scene.  They
also tend to have very high ceilings which help with claustrophobia.  Mine are
15 feet, but you can't see that in this view.

The silverware is definitely a work in progress.  All of the handles (except the
knife) use the same model, just with different lengths.  They were rough
approximations of something I found on a restaurant supply website, but I admit
they could be made heftier.

The glasses are champagne flutes, which are typically very narrow; if you sniff
champagne you just get bubbles up your nose.  However, I will verify that I
didn't confuse diameter and radius in my dimensions...

I may add some sort of textured embossing on the napkin rings too.

I will get at it fixing the modeling.  No one commented on the dripping
condensation on the ice bucket, which is my favorite part, so I need to remove
the distractions...
