I'd say go with the $19.95 per person option....and definitely pay as you drink.

Tentaively booked.

I think I will have to sign a contract and give my credit card number to put the whole thing on, but I have no problem with that (yay, miles!). With the way my billing cycle works, I don't think I'll need to ask for money until that evening.

I need to give her a final number 72 hours beforehand, but that shouldn't be a problem either.

We may need to choose the menu a bit in advance, so start thinking (unless you want me to make an executive decision, which would be fine)

Here is the one we are doing.

Yep - executive decision, and T.Boy and I are the executives. Tonight, at the "board meeting" we'll each pick 3 and let EddyJ pick the 7th.

Seriously, though, does anyone have an food allergies?

No allergies here, but if you are looking for personal preference, I like the steak skewers and assorted pizzas

Heh. But don't mind me, I'll deal with whatever the executives decide. Even if it means smuggling in some Burger King and eating it under the table.

I eat like a child.





chicken = good
burger = good



foie gras, seared salmon, escargot, mushrooms = yucky




But hey, as I said, that's just me. I know I'm weird.

It all sounds yummy to me.

Where are the dessert options?

BTW, didn't you have fois gras in Vegas, Fofer?? IIRC, you told me you did and that it was yummy.

This makes no sense, you're all locals. Every attendee should all be able to vote, with each of their votes specifically weighted to account for their "miles travelled to attend."







In all seriousness, order whatever. I'm sure you'll pick at least one yummy dish... I'll deal.

I'm just happy we've picked a place!

So far it looks like:
Oriental Marinated Steak Skewers
Assorted Pizzas
Picadillo & Cheese Empanadas
Dijon Chicken Skewers
& Cajun Chicken Egg Rolls
should all be definites.

Then, not to be the mom here, but we should probably pick something that is vaguely vegetable.

Least offensive seem to be (I think):

Baked Artichoke and Crabmeat Dip
Mediterranean Spinach Dip

How's that sound?

My nieces (who are 7) are always correcting me when I call something "yucky". You're SUPPOSED to say "I don't care for that".

Oddly I eat almost anything (and everything). Strangest things: ostrich sashimi, kangaroo, fried cactus, bugs (in several styles), teriyaki alligator ribs, haggis (yucky), and a scottish dish called "spotted dick" (which is actually just cake with raisins in a cream sauce, but it has a funny name). If there's something on the menu I haven't tried I've GOT to order it. BUT, I could just as easily make a meal out of Dorritos, ice cream and soda.

Sounds like Fofer and I go went to the same eating school. I am agreeing with all his choices, good and bad. Fof, we can sneak out afterwards, if needed.

You know, for dessert to walk around with afterwards.

I agree with Joules...the first five sound fine, but I would like something veggieish--both of the dips sound yummy, and what about the salad?
