I'll be wearing beige trousers and dark maroon shirt. Please ask for Sanjay's group when you get there. We pretty much have the whole of upstairs. I will email my mobile number. Don't worry if you RSVP at the last minute, there is plenty of space.
If you visit their website it says 'Texicana is now closed for business'. When I went their last Friday this wasn't mentioned to me (maybe the manager didn't know either at that point since the website message has only been placed this week). However, this doesn't affect us as they will actually be closing Sunday after lunch and they are expecting 50 of us for the meal and at least 80 for drinks, so they will be well prepared for us. The manager also has the link to this event and should the numbers increase they will accommodate us accordingly. Tim the manager has personally told me that they are a professional and so regardless of them shutting down on Sunday afternoon, we will be well looked after :)
He might do some special offers for us on the night, but that's a maybe with nothing guaranteed at the moment and it all depends on how the night goes!
I tried to upload their menu on the meetup site but it's too big and therefore I have uploaded it on one of my work servers, which you can see by going to the following link - http://www.exhibitormanual.com/texicana_menu_summer_2013.pdf
Apologies if this is an issue for anyone, but hopefully it won't be as it will not affect our evening.
If you are also staying for the drinks social after the meal then please also RSVP to that separately. Although it's in the same place I need to be able to state the number of people for drinks.
Time for the monthly meal & drinks. This time with the meal at Texicana Restaurant. I've ate their before and liked the food, decor and service. It faces the riverside up the little hill between The Slug & Lettuce and Pitcher & Piano pubs. We will have the upstairs part and depending on the weather we may have the outside balcony area. We will not be charged 'service charge' which is usually 12.5%.
The bill pay format will be the same as with all other meal meetups I have previously added on here. We will be spread over different tables with each table having their own bill. When the bill comes, simply calculate your amount and add it to the pot. It's worked very well in the past and should do so again.
