    I also didn't find the group, but I got there close to 630. One oth ER person -- ray -- said he'd been the since 610 but didn't see any noticeable group. Asked at the counter if t hey knew anything about a discussion following amour, and they said no. We switched to "quartet" which was enjoyable. Sorry I missed the group.
