    The food was very good--the place is definitely worth going back to. I missed a couple of my friends last night though--they always crack me up-- I hope they can make it another time.
    I had to leave before Eric spoke which I apologize to Eric for.

    I thought I RSVP'd yes. But I'm listed as no. Is it too late?

    April 15, 2013

    • laura

      I didn't see it on the mobile version. Meant to do it but never got around to it. Was planning on doing it today. I must have missed where it indicated a deadline. I'll try to do it now.

      I guess I'll catch the next one. Doesn't seem to be anywhere to pay. Hope everyone has a good time!

    I'm happy not to be on the waiting list. The last two dinners I went to were superb: The Greek restaurant, and the Troy buffet. The speaker was excellent, and the food was first-rate.

    I'd like to go to this event and be on the waiting list. I forgot my password, I got a new password and the computer won't accept it. I hope I can figure it all out before April 16.
