Venue Comments:
There were several ballots with comments in this section and to summarize, we loved the location & space and would come back. Specific positive comments included; our private room was nice, ?booze is good? and ?it?s got a good beet [sic] and you can dance to it?! (yes, we are goofy sometimes) The service got mostly high marks but a few of us never got served. :( This problem can not be blamed fully on our awesome server Katie though, as she ALONE had the huge task of serving 43 people, many of which kept moving around the room. Thank you Katie! Those of us that did eat thought the food was good but wished for a little better pricing. The negatives included the room temperature which seemed to fluctuate rapidly from cold to hot and back to cold. Also, the lighting seemed to be a problem, some mentioned a glare on game from the window, and others said it was just too dark. We were pretty bummed about it ending early. Though the posted hours show 11:00pm as the regular closing time, at about 9:30pm we were asked to leave, causing one game to end before it was completed. We generally like this place and most of the negative comments could be addressed fairly easily; additional wait staff, better lighting, discounts or happy hour pricing ALL evening, letting us play until 10:30pm and our members will bring their own sweaters for when the AC is faulty. The servers could write up each order with the individual's name on their order sheet and THEN the server can send it in to the chefs with a name. It might help keep the servers calmer by not having to yell out food orders and the guests would be less confused because they may have ordered the same dish as five other people in the room! :)

Organizer/Meetup Comments
Several people also left comments in this section of ballot.
Summarized comments include many positive notes about how our friendly members make first-timers feel welcome and they can hardly wait to come back! Some of the regulars said they ALWAYS have a great time! We love the drawing and prizes provided by the venues and hope to have them EVERY time! The solitary, fairly negative comment was that it ended too soon! It seems that our group is able to have fun no matter the circumstances and people appreciate the organizer?s diligence in making sure we have fun and a great place to play!
-------------------------------------- ---------------------------

It looks like Mimi?s Caf? is high on the list for a possible permanent spot in our probable rotation!
We may also consider Mimi?s Cafe as a possible location for other types of smaller game events and certainly for individual personal gatherings.

Thank you to all who participated in our meetup (and voting) at Mimi?s Caf?.
We look forward to seeing all those who can make it next time!
