With email RSVPs we have about 6 so far. The more the merrier. All I need is an accurate head count.

I'm sorry this isn't on a weekend and last minute. Many restaurants for groups are booked up this time of year and we didn't start planning early enough. We need a new staffer that will ONLY deal with our events! haha

Oh, I wish I was in NY at the time, but it doesn't look like I'll be moving back until the summer. Bummer, maybe next year though!

It'd be cool, and I'd love to meet some people who share the interest, but I have plans with another organization. Plus I'd feel weird still being a noob... :wink:

Maybe next event. Be nice to make some new acquaintances to go spotting with...

Was a good meal. Great food, big portions, most people leaving with doggie bags!

Small amount of people but I know I didn't plan it out far enough in advance. To make up for it, we're already working on our first Spring gathering!

Great seeing you guys!
