FYI: At Gervasi, there is hostess seating for the piazza (patio) area. As with all restaurants, however, Gervasi DOESN'T take reservations for the patio, and it's impossible to save tables to accommodate 20+ people. So, it's imperative to arrive as close to 5PM as possible, not only to make sure you get a seat but, hopefully, so we can get tables as close together as possible. Those of us who arrive around the same time can gather near the restaurant door and name tags will be distributed. Late arrivals should look for people wearing name tags to see if you can get a table near other Meetup attendees.
