Here is a link to the Facebook event! Check it out and RSVP there if you'd like (https://www.facebook.com/events/568077726571521/).
Let's meet up for a classy dinner (a three-course prix fixe meal) at 7 p.m. this Thursday, August 8, i.e. tomorrow. I am making the reservations tomorrow afternoon, so please RSVP by then. All are welcome! Here's a strong incentive for you all to join me: I am planning to put the entire bill on my Chase Sapphire Preferred card. You all can pay me back in cash if you want. Or not.
Sorry that I am inviting you all at the very last minute, but I'm trying out this new tactic. Based on some recent (unpleasant) experiences I've had, I've found that when I plan gatherings weeks or months ahead of time most people forget about them and end up canceling right before they take place.
