My motto henceforth is: if you don't know, ask.
Turns out I'm responsible for organizing the first of our Thai lunches, or, as Polly G has been calling it, Thai Smackdown.
The first lunch will be at Thai Square this Thursday, February 3 at 12:30. Thai Square is on Columbia Pike in Arlington. I'll give more details on location in an email to those participating.
Many of us believe that Thai Square is just about--if not the--most authentic of the Thai restaurants in the area. If you want to prepare your tastebuds in advance, I've attached a link to their website.
As always, please email me at the address above so I can let the restaurant know how many to plan for. For those who don't know it, the restaurant is pretty small, and I want to be sure they have enough seats set aside together for us and that they can plan for staff.
NOTE: You might avoid using the words "Thai Smackdown" in the subject line of your email. I didn't receive the email from Polly asking me to organize the first lunch, and it has occurred to me that my email filter may think that Thai Smackdown is spam mail from an Asian porn site.
