Meeting Description: The address goes out 1-3 days before the event to those who signed up.

Entry fee is $2-$7 depending on how carefully you read the posting and what if anything you bring.* If you read carefully, post your wine contribution, pizza & blind preference it's $2.

If you just wanted to show up empty handed and play poker this is your night! For the price of a single casino cocktail you can have a fun night of poker and unlimited bar/beverages.

There will be a potluck party on Friday the 2/22 for those who just want to just hang out.

In Michael's continuing effort to mix alcohol, poker and food we are going to Bel Air** for more of the same. Arrive anytime after 7:00 PM, cards in the air about 7:30ish, game ends around 11:30ish. Some of us will order optional Pizza for an extra $5-$6. (Please note if your in for pizza on not on your response posting.)

Michael is going to formally "semi"open the bar, which means there will be a limited selection of vodka, rum, whiskey other miscellaneous stuff**. Or you can BYO wine & shave $4 off the $7 suggested donation to encourage the wino's; (no two buck chuck allowed). There will also be bottled water, regular &; diet coke, regular & diet red bull and a selection of other "mystery" beers & sodas left over from other parties. If you want anything else, bring it.

We will start off with two tables of ten on the posting and if the wait list grows add up to three more tables as requests occur.. The game will be the usual no limit hold'em cash game with a $60-$100 buy in with $1 &; $2 blinds (higher than usual for some)& unlimited re-buys for 150% of the original top buy-in for the table. If we get enough demand for a $40-$60 buy in table with $.50 & $1 blinds we may open a table for that. Please put your blind preference on your response posting.

$6-$7 for host/organizer provided "stuff". (Don"t tell Michael's accountant he "semi" opened the bar.) Read carefully and post you sign-up correctly and it's $6.

$5-$6 for optional pizza.

No smoking anywhere near the property. Its semi-legal*** on the sidewalk out front. Just run around the block a few times to air out afterward.

* We are trying to get folks to call out their blind/table & pizza preference so we can plan properly. So if you call out "$1-$2 blinds in for Pizza" or anything close it's $6 to get in, if not it's $7. Bring a bottle of wine & take an extra $4 off or just pay the $6 entry donation and drink at the host provided bar.

** Don't be too impressed by the address. We were calling it the Bel Air Barrio but people keep getting lost/could not mapquest it. The rich folks live at the bottom of the hill.

*** The "semi" open bar is not top shelf but not anywhere close to plain wrap either and is limited to what's sitting in the "designated" area on the bar. No rummaging around in Michael's stash of good stuff or you will wind up in the pool with the smokers.

**** We were threatening to shoot smokers on site anywhere near the house but someone pointed out that shooting them might be illegal in some "un-enlighted" municipalities. Accordingly, smokers caught anywhere near the house will most likely be feed to the pool sharks unless we come up with a more amusing idea.
