Max number: There is a hard limit on number of people (32), so do make sure to update your RSVP if you can no longer make it - to allow waiting list members to attend.


Doors open after 6 - DO NOT SHOW UP BEFORE 6 - we'll start about 630. Also, DO NOT SHOW UP BEFORE 6. Repeat after me: DO NOT SHOW UP BEFORE 6.
