Just a reminder about our host Black Finn Restaurant.

Dear Members,

I had a conversation with the manager over at the Black Finn today. They keep our receipts and review them after every meeting. Apparently the last two meetings have shown that we are not not ordering enough money to make it worth their while to host us. I completely understand their point of view because business is business.

They go out of their way to make a comforting meetup space for us and we need to return the favor by spending money as a thank you.

I know some of you order at every meetup and I'm very grateful, even I do not reach the Black Finns expected minimum at every meetup (I hate the menu). If at all possible could we all try to spend 10-12 dollars on each meetup whether through food or drinks?

If not we will lose this location and be forced back to Le Madelines where we're never guaranteed a table, and the atmosphere isn't as conducive to our needs.

I'm always on the look out for other locations to meet, and if you have any suggestions please feel free to contact me. Keep in mind however, every restaurant we choose where a location is set aside for us, there is an implied expectation of food purchase.

If you're inconvenienced financially to order (I understand completely), don't feel obliged. We'll try to work it out for the restaurant.
