    I'm really disappointed. We got there and there were no seats at all. Stayed for a bit but didn't want to stand there forever. Food wasn't ready to be served still at 12:20, so who knows how long we would have had to stand there waiting for a seat. Ended up leaving. Paid for two meals, never ate.

      Hi Mya: I had made a reservation awhile ago but there were no seats when I arrived and not able to find anyone to assist which is why I left. I have noted some people were able to pay online. Please advise how to do that if that would ensure a seat. Thanks!

    Did anyone, by chance, take pictures of food with their smart phone? I had a high-resolution camera the whole time but forgot to ask someone to take pictures. If you did, please upload them.

    It was great to see you all. Thank you for the compliments on the food. When the eBook is ready to be downloaded, you will be notified at the email address you used to purchase the ticket via PayPal. It should be before Christmas so that if anyone wants to buy additional copies to gift to others, they can.

    How are we to get the eBook? The food was good. Beverages were a challenge, especially water. Special dietary concerns were handled but it was confusing and challenging to know what was in each dish.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
