    I won't know until that week if we can go... my daughter has a Cheer competition that weekend, but we have no idea what day they actually compete.

    We'd vote 4 courses. Hopefully they'd let us each choose either soup OR salad (not both) with the 4 course option.

    We'd order osso bucco and tilapia.
    But I'm not sure that would be universally popular.
    The Beef tenderloin with chimichurri sounds interesting and is
    probably more universally acceptable.

    We'd order the Key Lime Cheesecake and the Chocolate Torte. Those are probably a bit more mainstream choices.

    Of course, not sure our votes count for much if we're not able to commit! ;)

    Anyones opinion counts, even if they're not coming. If it's up to me I'm bringing Big Macs. :)

    I don't expect a response until the deadline, but just keeping track of the ones I am getting.

    Rob,

    Count Jerry and I in.

    I looked at the menu and I think the Duck Ravioli sounded good and for the main dish the Beef Tenderloin and dessert either the Bourbon pecan pie or the Walnut Chocolate Torte.

    I just sent in our selections. Here we go...

    4 Course

    Platter of appetizers: goat cheese on croutons, duck ravioli, calamari, beef tenderloin & shrimp, and salmon pizza.

    Salad: greens w/toasted pepitas w/raspberry vinaigrette.

    Entree selctions: Salmon, Beef tenderloin, or smoked & grilled Pork.

    Dessert: Key lime cheesecake or walnut chocolate torte.

    I think those are good selections, thanks for the input from Brian and Susan. Entrees will be fish, red, or white. So should please everyone. We can get more salad for the vegitarians.

    I've asked about valet, security, or just our own section for parking. The place is very well lit with plenty of room. Not a crowded area at all and a very nice neighborhood.

    Total cost will be $42 a person. Drinks and tip of course extra.

    Rob, count Bethany and I in as well (since we only live 1/2 mile away). Menu looks perfect... great restaurant! For those concerned, they have huge parking spaces too.

    I'll try to get there a little early, so you can probably just look for my car. They told me there would be good parking by the 24 hour fitness. Whatever that means, we'll find out when we get there. I'm looking forward to this. This is one of our favorite places. Knowing the participants there too, you can bet we'll be hitting some place afterwards. :)

    I was a bonehead and forgot my camera.

    It was a small group, but great food and great conversation. 5 Ferraris lined up outside, Joe's 360 Spider hasn't arrived yet. They actually put us in a private room upstairs. Very nice, but I guess you should expect over the top food for $42. I recommend the restaurant to anyone that hasn't been there.

    Ron/Steph, Jennie/I, Greg/Steph's Chickie snack and us hit Snookies afterwards and closed that place down. Ron and Greg had a sleep over at my place. I showed them some of my Ferrari stuff, then we watched Le Mans, then we watched Smokey & the Bandit, and then it was 5am before we knew it.
