July 9th Clan Meal
"It's quite late to be trying to
pull this off, but I've been in contact with the events folks at Buca di
Beppo in Seattle about their being able to accommodate a group of up to
40-ish on Sat. night 09 July and they can.A group of 15 or more would
fall under the classification of a "banquet" and basically we'd pick a
fixed menu like the one below and the same food would be served family
style to the entire group.To make this work we need a menu decided
basically tomorrow (Friday, 01 July, Pacific Coast US time in the
afternoon) and the commitment of 15 people. After that we can add more
people up through Wednesday of next week (that's a DROP DEAD deadline).
In order to secure this I will have
to give them my personal credit card, but it won't be charged unless we
flake. To pay you would just need to bring cash for Saturday night. The
price below does not include any alcohol. Those who are old enough and
have proper ID will be able to order alcoholic beverages, but that will
all be at additional cost and you won't receive any discount from the
charge below if you don't have any soft drinks, coffee, or tea, but
instead order other drinks.
The restaurant is walking distance from the Museum/Hotel.
The menu does not represent the only
things that are available, but due to the lack of time, I have gone
through and selected things that seem generally palatable and 'yummy
enough'. If there were lots more time we could go through a voting
process (and all that would entail over days and days), but there just
isn't the time. The whole process starts with deciding a menu and an
initial headcount (again the minimum is 15).
If you want to be a part of this organized "Clan Meal", please respond here with a FIRM COMMITMENT (no 'maybes' please). Make it clear if you want to be considered a vegetarian or not.
I think it is very likely that K.
Pawl will join this for his evening meal if it materializes, but that's
not a 100% sure thing at this point."
