I wonder why the Tru J Beard Dinner on 1/8/04 is dubbed the "Third Annual"? Do members know if what types of dinners occurred before, and could members provide input on past dinners?
Apparently, participants are described as including, with a noticeable Canadian contingent:
R Feenie (Lumiere, Vancouver)
J Cartwright (The White Barn Inn)
J Joho (Everest)
A Taylor (Langdon Hall, East Coast, Canada)
A Walsh (Canoe, Toronto)
The all-in cost is $225 for J Beard members/$250 for others, with wine pairings, tax, tips, etc. included.
