************************************

You'll need to eventually take a break from Black Friday weekend shopping, right?

Fellow member & Event Host Steve has offered to host an event! He's going for a nice seafood / steakhouse cuisine with lots of dish options at the Chart House (Old Town Alexandria).

Food: A broad menu, with a heavy upscale emphasis on seafood. There's a variety of fish offered in a number of preparations (including a fresh fish submenu), but fear not you'll also find the prerequisite steak / chicken / pork options as well. They do a nice job here with food and service. And if you ever are in a mood for brunch, consider coming here ;-)

Space: Located in historic Old Town Alexandria behind the Torpedo Factory, Chart House is the area’s only waterfront dining location. Nice long views of the Potomac River, Woodrow Wilson Bridge & the U.S. Capitol Building.

1. Limited to 14 slots.

2. If you RSVP "YES" please make sure you can definitely make it. With 3,900+ members and limited seating, we cannot afford no-shows. It's unfair to the other members who would like to attend and also to the organizers who have to explain to the restaurant why the reserved # of guests didn't show (can damage our reputation). No-Show rules apply (http://tinyurl.com/5byotq).

3. Event already full?, waitlist for the event!. Use the Waitlist option (the Organizer for each event will enable this as needed). Also, check back regularly as attendees have been known to cancel up to Noon the day of the event.

4. Billing (add 30% tax/tip to your bill). Remember, include the required 30% for tip / tax in addition to the food / beverages you order as defined in our FAQs (http://diningout.meetup.com/149/messages/boards/view/viewthread?thread=1650845#[masked]).

5. NEW MEMBERS or 1st TIME EVENT GO-ERS, if you have questions about the group, RSVPs, or the overall dining event process, visit our FAQs (http://diningout.meetup.com/149/messages/boards/view/viewthread?thread=1650845) and our No-Show Policy (http://tinyurl.com/5byotq).
