New Meetup: And Now, A Dining Experience for Your "Amusement"

From: Avish
Sent on: Thursday, March 19, 2009 12:53 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Philadelphia Dining Out Meetup Group!

What: And Now, A Dining Experience for Your "Amusement"

When: March 27,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: "The trouble with eating Italian food is that 5 or 6 days later you're hungry again."
-George Miller, British writer

Are you ready for "amusement?" Are you ready for "enjoyment??" Are you ready for Italian food???

Then be sure to join us on Friday, March 27th for a fantastic Italian dinner at Spasso Italian Grill.

Using a handy dandy Italian to English translation website, I learned that Spasso means "amusement" and "enjoyment" in English. What better way to spend a Friday night...

Spasso describes itself as "comfort food from Italy," so bring your appetite!

NEW RULES for RSVPing:

There's great news at the Dining MeetUp ... we're growing! We have a lot of new members. Every event is filling up less than a couple of hours after it's posted. And so many people want to meet you that the Waitlist has more people on it than can attend in the first place. So to make sure the people who will attend can join us, we're going to start something new: RSVP CONFIRMATIONS.

2-3 DAYS PRIOR TO THE EVENT, I will send out an e-mail to THOSE WHO'VE RSVP'd "YES" and ask you to E-MAIL ME CONFIRMING THAT YOU'RE COMING.

If you've RSVP'd "Yes" and you don't get back to me within 24 hours of the e-mailed confirmation request:
1) I'll presume you're not able to join us;
2) Your RSVP will be switched to "No;" and
3) Your spot will be given to a Waitlisted person who will definitely attend.

WAITLISTING
Please never hesitate to Waitlist yourself if you want to attend, but all available seats are taken. When spots open up for an event, I e-mail the Waitlist. If you're among the first to respond and are committed to coming, I'll e-mail you back to confirm the spot is yours!

All that said...

PLEASE ONLY RSVP "YES," IF YOU ARE COMMITTED TO ATTENDING THE DINNER.

Please use the "MAYBE" option, if:

1. You're unsure of whether or not you can make the dinner; or
2. You're not totally committed to coming. (You can always change it later.)

IF YOU RSVP "MAYBE," please confirm "YES" or "NO" as soon as possible because events fill up quickly.

In order to accommodate members who want to attend the event (but didn't get to RSVP as quickly), RSVPs still listed as "MAYBE" two days before the event will automatically default to "NO" to make room for other potential attendees.

By the same token, the site will not accept "MAYBE" RSVPs within the two days prior to the event.

THE USUAL RULES

Three quick things you need to know:
1) Make sure you RSVP right away since our reservation is limited to 15 people.
2) To help defray the costs of the website, $1 will be added to your bill at the restaurant. Small price to pay for great food and great company!
3) If you happen to arrive at the restaurant before I do, the reservation is in my name (Charles).

Hope to see you there!
