Meetup Description: Twas two weeks before Christmas
and all through the house,
my brain was racked with panic
'cause time was running out.
I'd barely started shopping,
and there was still much to do:
Decorating ... hanging lights
and setting up this event too.
"You don't have to worry."
said a voice from behind.
"I'm the Christmas Procrastinator," he said.
"And I shall give you some Time."
I stared at my clock,
waiting for magic to find me.
But "I'm a procrastinator," he said.
"You'll get it next Friday."
And then in my hand
I found a small note.
Then he vanished without a word.
Twas a reservation he left.
Friday at "Time:" That's the plan.
For in this season of busyness,
We must enjoy Time all we can.
Thank you ... Thank you ... And a special round of applause for our very special Christmas Procrastinator ... tomorrow.
So the plan is this:
"Time" at 7:15pm, BUT if you're up for some holiday cheer BEFORE DINNER at 6:15pm:
Meet me at Macy's (specifically the corner of 13th and Market ... I'll be wearing Grandma's bright red reindeer sweatshirt) for the famous Wanamaker's Light Show and Dickens Christmas Village -- beloved Philadelphia traditions with a combined 70+ years of history ... and they're still FREE!
We'll head into Dickens Christmas Village at 6:30. Then we'll catch the 7pm light show before heading over to Time for Absinthe cocktails and delicious American fare.
Join us ... It's sure to be a festive eve!
QUICK NOTE about RSVPing:
PLEASE ONLY RSVP "YES," IF YOU ARE COMMITTED TO ATTENDING THE DINNER.
Please use the "MAYBE" option, if:
1. You're unsure of whether or not you can make the dinner; or
2. You're not totally committed to coming. (You can always change it later.)
IF YOU RSVP "MAYBE," please confirm "YES" or "NO" as soon as possible because events fill up quickly.
In order to accommodate members who want to attend the event (but didn't get to RSVP as quickly), RSVPs still listed as "MAYBE" two days before the event will automatically default to "NO" to make room for other potential attendees.
By the same token, the site will not accept "MAYBE" RSVPs within the two days prior to the event. (At that point, new RSVPs that list themselves as "Maybe" are automatically defaulted to "No" as well.)
Usual rules apply...
Three quick things you need to know:
1) Make sure you RSVP right away since our reservation is limited to 15 people.
2) To help defray the costs of the website, $1 will be added to your bill at the restaurant. Small price to pay for great food and great company!
3) If you happen to arrive at the restaurant before I do, the reservation is in my name (Charles).
RSVP & Waitlisting
One final note ... Please stay true to your RSVP. If you don't think you can make it make it, please change your RSVP, so others can join in the fun. (Likewise, if you want to participate in the event, but it's already filled up with "Yes"s and "Maybe"s; the site now offers a feature that lets you Waitlist yourself. Use that option; and I'll contact you if any spaces open up, giving you the opportunity to jump in and RSVP "Yes.")
