      I RSVP'ed yesterday, can't I pay in person? I'm not familiar with computer stuff. Don't know what PayPal is. What should I do? Maybe not go to this event?

    Forgot to mention that up to 2 kids under age 7 will eat free with an accompanying adult who paid in advance using Pay Pal button on my site. After purchasing ticket, contact me via http://www.ZestWishes.CO and let me know if you are bringing children so that I can add to guest list. Like I already mentioned, no walk-ins will be allowed this time. The last event hosted at this venue was too crowded.

    Be sure to reserve your seats via PayPal payment button on my website: http://www.ZestWishes.CO (click 'EVENTS' tab) because no walk-ins will be allowed this time. The last brunch event was very crowded.

    "NO...imitation meats and cheeses"????

      Move over, Morning Star, Gardein and Tofurky. Just a few examples of leading brands making mass-manufactured, chemically-processed, textured soy protein or wheat gluten. When you really look, you'll find that there are better things to eat. http://kblog.lunchbox...­

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
