Thirty of us have now confirmed for our second annual "Blowout" dinner at Laboratorio for next Friday, the 22nd. If anyone would like to consider joining what now have become semi annual events please contact me directly at my e-mail above. This year's Lab dinner is 14 courses (typical is 12) with a prix fixe of $150 + wine, tax and tip. There will probably be a dinner in the Spring that I will contact everyone about just after the first of the year.
For those on the waiting list who are not able to join us I apologize.
Last, below is the link to what is now a "legendary" photo that I have "milked" ruthlessly because I believe it faithfully captured the spirit of last year's dinner where we started as thirty strangers and ended as thirty friends. Roe Panella who took this photo is responsible for the appropriate caption.
I am certain that there will be many photos from this year's blowout (Roe, Bonz, James G?) that will be posted on here along with reports of this 14 course over the top absolute indulgence!
Thanks again to everyone and to Chowhound.
