    For those confirmed for dinner at Altura on 12/6, please update your RSVP by Tuesday 12/4 if you are unable to attend. I am holding this reservation with a personal credit and will need to fill open seats or modify the reservation to avoid being penalized. Thanks and I'm looking forward to enjoying this special dinner with all of you!

    Altura agreed to increase the reservation to 10 people. For those on the waitlist, I plan to host another dinner there in January and you will have priority.

    Since it looks like there is a lot of interest in Altura, any chance of getting another table?
