    I just realized that this is the night before the Broad Street Run. Since there are so many people waiting and this probably isn't the best food to eat the night before a race I am regretfully changing my RSVP.

    If you are looking for ideas, VegNews has an article on what to make for Cinco de Mayo.

    I am no longer able to attend the function. Dave signed us up to see the Chinese troupe dance extravaganza for a matinee performance. Then we will be meeting another couple for dinner in Chinatown. Have fun. I will miss seeing and connecting with all of you.

    No larger locations available? Gather outside (should be warm enough in three weeks), bring your own chair...? There are so many people on the waiting list....

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
