[Please note, a reminder about dinner: Please make every effort to bring cash, as that makes it much easier for us to reconcile the bill. We have learned that if you add 30% to the total amount owed for your meal, to cover DC tax and gratuity, the dollars will add up correctly. In the past, we've been several dollars short. If you MUST leave before the check comes, please make every effort to leave the correct amount.]


If you are joining us for the (optional) dinner, please remember that you must add 30% to the total cost of your meal and drinks. This covers gratuity and tax. Please try to have cash in hand instead of credit cards, making it much easier for us to reconcile a large bill.
