Hi folks. I'll start another string here rather use Herb's "Future DDC Dinners one). I received some replies privately (as I requested) as well as the responses on the Board about possible Overtures dinner and here's where we stand.
Matt and Lisa would come but will be away till mid-July. 4 others wrote that would like the Tuesday July 2nd date.
As you know, I posted my message literally minutes before David firmed up Sultan in Lansdale and I know Rich is anxious to do Independence Brew Pub - and I'll certainly try to make that. I don't want to commit to Overures in the fall because business picks up then and we may not be able to get the whole restaurant for the price offered.
If Katie can get Grasshoper for our "price" I'd love to do that too! (though Parking in Manyunk May-October is a bummer, even mid-week.)
So here was my thought (Plan B): Based on postings here, Chowhounds obviously dine out more than once a month and not everyone has every date available - or wants every kind of cuisine (we a FEW of you do!). So I offered to those who responded to me that they were interested, that we can do an informal group dinner of the 5-7 of us on Tuesday, July 2nd at Overtures. Some on the Board have been there and others who can't make it ca, of course, go at any time (except Mondays when it is closed).
I sent messages to the four who wrote me. If anyone else wants to commit to that date, email me off list by Tuesday if you can and I'll make the reservation.
Again, I didn't want to step on anyone's toes and feel this is the best solution. There are SO MANY places to try and we get a new mix of people each time.
Okay, Rich, pick some dates for the Independence Pub! July is all yours for a big DDC event.
