As simple as it sounds, dinner and a movie at the Marketplace!
I was thinking we can dine for a little while at Buca Di Beppo and get to know each other. Depending on how the size of the group we may be able to do one of the specialty tables. There is the "Pope's Table" that seats 12-18 and the "Kitchen Table" that seats 6-10. Not a guarantee, but I will see what I can do about reservations. :)
If you need to get a hold of me, my number is [masked]-9395.
EDIT: The restaurant is located just a bit past the theater on Jamboree road. Here is the address for those of you who need it: 13390 Jamboree Road, Irvine, CA 92602.
EDIT 2: The most convenient time for the movie is 7:15. I recommend that you buy your movie tickets online ahead of time.
