A hearty doomo doomo to my fellow chowhounds for chiming in. Sure wish I'd found this site long ago!
Would the 8th, 14th or 15th be a possibility for everyone? That'd probably be best for me, but I have some flexility. The only dates that are out are the 7th (entertaining coworkers that day) and 21st (my birthday- a year older, no wiser). Also pretty flexible about the location, although for a relaxing evening of chat and food, a couple of Y500 Grolsches at Propaganda in Roppongi (always go early- it's quiet, the music is good, and it has a nice hole-in-the-wall vibe) before dinner always puts me in a good mood.
Looking forward to hearing back from all!
By the way, has anyone made it to Angkor Wat in Yoyogi? I've been meaning to make a pilgrimage for years, but for whatever reason things always seem to come up....
