Spicy dinner at Ploy Thai

Note that the map was wrong , but I have corrected it.  The restaurant is right by the R/M Elmhurst Ave. stop.

We will be eating family style, as usual.  I will be ordering some dishes SPICY, and hopefully they will honor my request!  Please bring cash, preferably small bills.  The estimated cost is $20-25 a person, not including any drinks you might order.  After dinner, we might head over to Tea Cup Cafe for dessert.

To cover our fees to, we will charge members $1 over the food/tax/tip bill at each event.

Finally, a word about attendance, because we had a no-show at our last dinner.  We had a waitlist full of people who wanted to attend, and an empty seat at the table.  This is unacceptable, so we are reinforcing our policy to try to avoid this in the future. 

When you sign up you are making a commitment to show up.  If you don't change your RSVP 24 hours before the dinner, you will be considered a no-show.  We will maintain a list that you don't want to be on.  No-shows will be barred from signing up to any of our dinners for 4 months.  Repeat no-shows will be dropped from the group.

If you have an emergency day-of, change your RSVP ASAP AND send me an email through the site.

I look forward to dining with you!

    I hope none of you are scared of a little rain, but even if you are, this restaurant is an excellent choice for rain avoidance because it's IMMEDIATELY OUTSIDE the 82nd St. stairwell of the Elmhurst Ave. stop on the M and R trains! :)

      "twas a lot of rain, but worth getting a little wet nonetheless. Good choice.

    Having lived in Thailand and Laos for almost a decade, with quite a few international stories and local books written about Thai food, I'd be delighted to join you. But alas, I'm the New York correspondent for a classical music review site and must go to a concert that night. Enjoy it all, and remember that they key to Thai food is NOT its "hot quotient" but its tasty quotient. Also, the only indigenous Thai ingredient is lemon grass (which I'm sure they will use). If you want it very spicy, specify, "Pet dhee!" or not so spicy, "kau tot, na khat, mai pet dhee."

    Ask also for their special dishes, "pee-set" means special. (the rest of the grammar is too complex)

    Is all dishes will be SPICY? I love Thai food but I can only take on mild level of spicy. If this dinner is trying to challenge as spicy as possible please let me know and I will change my rsvp. Thanks!

      Not all, but I am asking the restaurant to make some dishes authentically spicy.
