I decided to show some initiative and went to Pho Xe Lua tonight to speak with the manager. They will be delighted to host our next gathering so I chose TUESDAY Nov. 19, at 7:00PM as a date with enough time to prepare for, and NOT the week of Thanksgiving as I thought many Chowhounds might be anxiously preparing for their familial feasts by then. I hope this works for anyone that might wish to attend. A menu will be faxed to me for approval sometime over this weekend, and I will post it and a formal invitation as soon as it is available to me. The cost will be our usual $25.00/person with tax and tip inclusive, however, the restaurant *does* have a liquor license, so beverages will be available on a cash-and-carry basis. Let's look forward to our first collective VIETNAMESE cuisine experience and any new DDCers that might wish to join us are welcome, as always.
I anticipate the usual fun and great eats, so let the salivating begin!
