    Enjoyed chatting with interesting people, my Cuban sandwich was very good. Too bad band (which was actually a great band!) limited conversation--but,hey-we survived. All the best to you, Sheryl-you've don a great job!!

    What an odd place to meet for an international group! Nothing international about the restaurant or the menu. I'm still irate the restaurant "accidentally" charged $4500 tip for $30 lunch -- and owner Raphael didn't notice or correct it until I got back into town (10 days!). Meanwhile I couldn't use my credit card. Kindly define what "international" meetup means??

      Patti. A few years ago it was intended for vast majority of the members to be representing quite a diversity of origins, cultures and all over the world experiences. That is why meetup was called International. Sheryl has been doing excellent job, this meetup has become very popular, and.... now... these days ... out of 35-40 peeps at practically any event here and there... you still have good chances to find 3 or 4 international attendees. But apparently the name of the meetup has remained the same

      Thanks Anatoly -- I wasn't looking for a party. I was hoping to make friends with people who have a passion for traveling internationally or are international - I like to try different restaurants -- Floribeen is not one I would make a return visit to. Thank you. Maybe I'll start my own after I see the next venue. I appreciate your response and clarification. Best, Patti

    Nice evening with a great group of interesting members. The food was good and served by friendly waitresses. Too bad that the music was very loud limiting any decent conversation ! All the best to you Sheryl and your family. We will miss you !

    Everything was Great. However, Live Music makes it impossible to have any type of a conversation.
    In future Meetups I'd hope we could do with out the music.

I tried to change my RSVP about 5:45pm (when I could manage to crawl, yes crawl, to the computer -- but the RSVP would not cancel. Again, So sorry for having to cancel so late!!!!!

    We just had something come up that we cannot avoid, so am going to change my RSVP in a moment, and three people on the waiting list can now attend tomorrow night. (It should automatically update with the next three people on the waiting list.) Everyone enjoy, and have a great time!! :-)

    That happened to me. It was with a travel agaent for a criuse to Hawai. My card was maxed and could not use the card. The criuse line had no record I paid. I told criuse line if credit card Companiy asks me why I am not paying then I will tell them the criuse line refuses to give me boarding pass after they charged my credit card 3000 dollars. Well they had a change of heart. But I still had inconvience of not using the card for about 2 weeks because of time they have to correct the mistake. Its funny it takes 10 seconds for your payment to clear the merchant but if they make mistake it takes 2 weeks. I certainly wont use my credit card tommorow at that resturent. And if it werent for the group going there I would stay out of that place as far as I could

      Sorry for all you went through! I'll be sure to NOT use my credit card at this place.

      January 29, 2013

    • patti T.

      Perhaps don't tip with the credit card! :) I don't think the menu is that great or inernational, except paellas

      My understanding is that when there is a new opening the next person's name on the 'waiting list' automatically gets moved to the 'attending' list. yeaa!

      The list on my page, to right of here, shows you still on wait list. But I'm no expert.

    I cannot make it but do not know how to change my acceptance. Please free up my reservation for someone else!

    • Marilyn

      I am not going so you can take my place. I am not sure how to take myself of the list.
