  7. In a hotel: You are staying at a hotel and would like to ask a hotel employee to organize a taxi for you. You ask the receptionist:  “Could you organize a taxi for me for this evening please? I need to be picked up at 7p.m to go out for a business dinner.” “Could you book a taxi to take me to the train station tomorrow morning please? I need to be at the station at 8:30a.m. What time do you think should I leave?”

I can’t see ‘The Irish Pub.”
