It is that time of year again, and we normally get together for a festive dinner and discussion combined.
For the past couple of years, we have met at the Green Tea Vietnamese restaurant in Fortitude Valley.
To make things as smooth and simple on the night, last year we all ordered a set meal. The restaurant has a range of banquets and within reason we can swap some stuff between menus - but let's not get too complicated. If we have a number of vegetarians we can probably select some additional vegetarian dishes but I don't want to have 20 different choices of banquet menus for me to choose from :-) Below is menu from the website. It will probably be easier if you indicate anything that you CAN'T eat and I will work with that.
The restaurant’s menu can be seen at: http://www.greentearestaurant.com.au/index.php/our-menu
We will do a "secret santa" where everyone brings a book wrapped up and we go round the table and pick one from the bag. The book should be an inexpensive one and can be new or good quality second hand. It should be a book that you believe someone would enjoy reading even though you don't know who will get your book :-)
We have made a booking, but we need to give final numbers to the restaurant, so the RSVP cut-off date is Monday, December 9th.
As this is a busy time of year to be fair to the restaurant owners please don't RSVP Yes unless you are committed to attend and also please don't attend unless you have given us your RSVP as this makes it awkward on the night.
