Meet for dinner before the Hawkings lecture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                What: Dinner before the lecture.
               Where: Meet for dinner at Birraporetti's Restaurant
                      500 Louisiana Street, Houston TX 77002
                When: Tue, Mar 26th at 5:00 PM.
               Directions: Birraporetti's is on the same block as
               the Alley Theatre.

Once people have emailed me from various groups going to the lecture, I'll get a table big enough ... or make reservations for a couple of table should the number be a larger one. Great place to eat before the theater and they always get us out in time.

    It looks like the baby got thrown out with the bath water. There was so much energy about people not getting their fair share (just as chimpanzees will do!) that a valuable insight to this rare person gets minimized, and, sadly, the video (supposedly) destroyed... I hope it doesnt, since there apparently is no contractual agreement whatsoever that the presentation had to be an exclusive one...its sort of like Solomon cutting the baby in half! Bill

    I agree. Dinner and conversation were wonderful and I would enjoy more such opportunities.

    With the number originally at 24, there were a lot of additions and subtractions from the list at the very last second. We ended up with 11 hardy souls sitting at a table before the lecture/movie. I enjoyed the conversations and the chance to meet several new people and a few that I've met before. It makes me realized that we need a few more of these opportunities to meet socially that are not always there at a typical lecture. It was just not enough time.

    Thank you for organizing this and I am sorry I will miss it but my project deadline was moved up so I had to choose bw the lecture or dinner bc I couldn't do both

    It is Tuesday and I confirmed our reservation for 5 PM with Birraporetti's Restaurant. With several people coming in and some leaving due to getting their money back ... it still looks like we are
    around 16 with a reservation for 24. I expect we can take all comers at this point. Individual invoices for dinner. I'll see you there this evening. Cheers, John

    We are still less than 20 for dinner tomorrow at 5 PM, before the lecture (actually a movie). I will be there.

    Cheers, John

    Hi John. I see there is one more spot left for the dinner. (I haven't been to any events so I'll be a newbie)

    I will not be able to attend dinner. Anyone want to purchase my ticket for the lecture?

    March 21, 2013

  • John M.

    Okay ... a few minutes ago, I sent a note to everybody who has confirmed for dinner (by email) before the lecture. I am only at 16 people so far and have a reservation for 24. If you wish to join us and did not get my note, please email me with how many are coming with you. The only bounce on that email was from Carol who should have all of my contact info.
    Cheers, John

    If any spots open up, I'd like to join.

      I am planning to attend both dinner and the lecture. I saw a reference to printing a ticket but when I click on the icon nothing comes up. Can I purchase a ticket at the door?

      March 21, 2013

    • John M.

      People are starting to sell their tickets. Dinner? Please contact me at email address just above your note.

    I'm not sure if I can go to the dinner, but I plan on buying a ticket in the in the cheap seats if anyone wants to join me.

    I have now contacted each person who reserved a slot to see if they are still going and exactly how many they are bringing. I will likely be opening this up to a few more people once I get the body count. I will deal with this by email after this. Cheers, John

    Great idea! Would love to join for dinner if any spots open up!

    January 25, 2013

    • John M.

      Send me a private email ... people are dropping out and I'll complete this by email.

      January 27, 2013

  • John M.

    Since we are at 20 now, please email me how many are going with you to my [masked] address. That way I can build an email list and get a count for exactly how many are eating and track those who decide to do something else. I want to make sure we have enough room.

    I made reservations last night for 24 people on 3/26, just to give us a little wiggle room. I think they can easily get a whole section for us.

  • John M.

    Wow, this is filling up faster than I expected. Once we reach 20 or so, I'll make sure we have a special table and a reservation. I'm eating there tonight, so I'll talk with the boss.

    I would love to join for dinner but I might not make it since I'm traveling from Galveston. I'll see you at the lecture! I'm somewhere in the balcony. =)

    Dinner and a lecture. Probably a perfect evening.

    Cheers, John
