I was there well after everyone left when she complained about what happened.
Apparently they are more of a restaurant than a bar and weren't quite prepared for the crowd.
It doesn't excuse the behavior of those individuals that didn't pay.
Clearly you and Cheri shouldn't have to pay.
I am going to post a suggestion that we all chip in to cover the deficit.
One of the wine groups had a large gathering there without incident.
I would think they would have had systems in place.
Would appreciate your thoughts,

I have been notified that the bartender stated that lots of people left without paying for their drinks, more than $200.00 worth. Cheri and I will be covering this outstanding bill. This is unacceptable behavior, and it will not be tolerated in the future. This will never happen again. If we need to check and make sure you have paid your bill before you leave we will. Not paying your bill in the future will mean being thrown out of the group.
