Happy Sunday, all!
Just wanted to let you all know that we still have room for more guests. In fact, at this point, we are a few people short of our 25 minimum (when I count the definites only, not including any maybes).
The banquet room that we will be in can seat about 45 people comfortably, so please don't be shy if you want to come! And if you have replied maybe, please let me know one way or another as soon as you can. Here is the list again. If you are listed as a Maybe but are actually a Yes, let me know.
The Confirmed Attendees :
Myself (ShesAPirate) +3 other adults (possibly 1 or 2 more)
Roomthreeseventeen +1 (possibly 2 more)
CherylA + 1 (Tony)
Kevin and John!
I hope Pete and Walter can come too! We're looking forward to meeting everyone. Does anyone know if the restaurant has a dress code? I was thinking of wearing something cocktail-ish and DH probably a collared shirt and khakis.
Of course we could always make it themed and dress like pirates! (jk)
I hope Pete and Walter come, too! Would absolutely love to meet them.
I don't think there's a dress code. It looks like a pretty casual place. I will probably wear a skirt, but a summery one -- nothing too fancy.
As for dressing like pirates -- well, I'd wear an eye patch, but that's about it
Good morning everyone
This weekend, we had the most amaaaaaaazing ricotta cheesecake at our favorite Italian restaurant. I'd never had ricotta cheesecake before, believe it or not, and after this experience, I think I'm changing my vote from tiramisu to ricotta cheesecake. I will obviously go with the majority, of course
Just a couple of reminders -- we have more space, and we need a few more people to meet the minimum. Feel free to do some recruiting! We are also looking for more donations for the raffle benefiting Give Kids the World (see thread http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2969104). Anything anyone could contribute would be greatly appreciated
Hey just wanted to let you know. I'm a yes but its just me, DH can't make it.
Looking forward to it!
Wonderful! I will move you to the Yes list
I believe that it will just be DH and myself, no extras at the moment.
Hey guys- working to update the donation baskets again tonight. If you haven't PMed me yet and plan on bringing a basket or any kind of donation, please send me a message.
Hoping to see everyone in a couple of weeks!
Just a little reminder bump!
Hello! I would love to come to the dinner if there is still room. I work in NYC and it would be easy for me to get there after work.
Absolutely not too late, Jason! I will add you to the Yes list. Please let me know if you will be solo or if you're bringing anyone along. Thanks!
Unfortunately I won't be able to be there. I do hope that you all have a great time!
Take care, Sandy
Thank you very much, I will be solo. Looking forward to it!
Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I just got back from Orlando yesterday.
I will be attending by myself.
Thanks for organizing this! How do we get payment to you?
Excellent! I will move you to the Yes list
As far as payment (and I've been meaning to make a post about this), I'm not sure what would work best, but I did ask the Event Planner at the restaurant, and she told me we could pay in cash the evening of the event (I didn't ask about doing a bunch of different cards or anything like that -- just too complicated).
Since I have given my credit card to hold the reservation, I believe I the best idea would be to have people pay me directly upon arrival that night so that I'm sure we have all the money in before the party starts.
Remember, your alcoholic beverages will be your own responsibility. You can pay for those on your own tab (I won't be handling that money).
If anyone has ANY questions about any of this, please feel free to post here or PM me. Thanks!
That sounds great, when you get a chance if you could post the exact amount including tax per person we'll make sure we bring the cash with us to give to you. Thanks so much!
Glad to have you Jason! I'm glad we are getting so many local dis boards members together
Okay, everyone, here's the scoop:
The total price with the automatic 20% gratuity and 8.875% NY tax is $38.66 per person.
I will not be fumbling with coins, I can tell you that much Ginamarie (who is heading up the fundraising for this event -- please see thread here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2969104) suggested that we make it an even $40 per person, with the extra $1.34 going to Give Kids the World (the total of all those $1.34s will be rounded up to the nearest dollar, as will the total cost of the check for our meal/tax/gratuity. Again -- no fumbling with change for anyone).
Sounds like a great idea to me! Please let us know what the rest of you think
Sounds like a good idea to me!
