      Hey Rick, did you RSVP no on the list or do you want to pass on your space to an enthusiastic party? ;)

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we have to follow the fire code, so only those speaking and in the Attending list can attend tonight. Sorry for those on the Waitlist. We should have the event on video for you to watch later. And next time we'll plan for a bigger space. Thanks!
