    tic toc, tick toc, the time to change your status to not going has passed. I will give Agave a count of 31. Any changes to not going after this point are a no show. No show policy for sit down dinners is a 90 day ban from sit down dinners. We will start at 6:15 which should give everybody attending one of the tours plenty of time to eat and socialize. I am on the 8 pm tour and have one ticket available.

    We have 2 tickets for the 7:45 tour. We will be at dinner at 6:15 if you can use the tickets let us know . [masked]
