Dinner at Yerba Buena

Hi all, sorry I missed the last meetup. Book and details below as discussed at Dos Caminos.
The book for this month is "And the Mountains Echoed" by Khaled Hosseini

Summary: Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

    Hey Ladies! I'm so sorry but I'm gonna miss tonight! I'm stuck at work. I was looking forward to seeing how you all felt about the book. Sad! But looking forward to next month!

    Hi all

    If possible please bring cash tonight.
    I just found out that this restaurant does not like splitting the bill among multiple credit cards.
    Also, if you have any issues or cant make it please text me at 3477314507. They also do not seat anyone until the entire part arrives.
    (Next time well go to a much less strict restaurant)

    See you tonight!

    Hi ladies. I changed to a no. I'm only half way thru and don't know that I'll be able to contribute to the conversation. Looking forward to meeting everyone at the next one.

    I didn't get a chance to read the book so if there are others on the waitlist who did, they can have my spot. If not, I could still meet for dinner. Either way is fine. :)

      Keep your RSVP as is. I'm looking forward to meeting you

      I still plan on being there! Melissa - hope to see you tomorrow, if not definitely the next time! Patty - looking forward to meeting you!

      I don't want anyone to change their RSVP to make room for others. I just want to make sure everyone saying they're going will go. I hope you can make it

    Hi everyone, I was looking forward to discussing the book and meeting all of you but I can't make it next week, due to a scheduling conflict. I look forward to discussing the next book!
