I want to thank everyone who contacted me about this dinner. What started as a response to Bonz in a thread about an anniversary dinner for Foodie in Lawyer's Clothing has developed into a 12 course, four hour dinner for 30 at Laboratorio on Thursday, October 30th. All are now confirmed. Believe it or not there were another 11 on a waiting list if someone had dropped out. No one did. We have five coming from Baltimore, one from Philly and one from Baghdad (!). I apologize for those who are not able to join us; I promise that you will be toasted! Several times.
I have also had a large number of people ask me if I would put together a similar blowout dinner for Maestro, perhaps in late January or February after everyone has had a chance to recover calorically and financially from Laboratorio! This could be sensational also but I want to wait until after the Laboratorio blowout. One 6,000 calorie meal at a time!
Again, I never thought that the post which I have linked below would have led to 41 of us wanting to share a blowout dinner together especially at what this will cost. But I think this shows our real values and priorities. Anyway, I wonder if anyone else on this board may have named their cat, "Munchie."
She has profited from my obsession. I believe we all will on the 30th. Thank you.
