The tangents are moot.
The Greatest of All Time
Maybe ask Trent to send out an email requesting an RSVP so you can get an idea of the number people who will attend. Or post a thread in the swamp to catch everyone else that doesn't come to this forum.
The Year of the Monkey
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Dallas, I can send out an email to all and give them your email addy. Do you want to do that? Perhaps set up a special email for this so you don't have to deal with it after next week?
Hey fellow Monkeys! I am a local monkey registrant. On Saturday night, pre-Monkey, Savarino's on Belcourt Ave. will feed us in the upper room. They have room for 80. Here is what Trent has said -
Savarino's Cucina - Family-owned, small Italian with great cookies
2121 Belcourt Ave
Nashville, TN 37212
The owner is suggested offering 3 different menu items, available for $10/person. He suggested, spaghetti and meatballs, Penne with broccoli and garlic, and gemelli with roasted zucchini, squash, eggplant and peppers. (Other menu items are meat lasagna, Eggplant parmigaiana, stuffed shells chicken parmigiana, manicotti, stuffed pepper, baked ziti and rigatoni.)
They also have pizza, which may be another option. He also suggested everyone bringing cash and having one payment, rather than them having to run 45 different debit cards. Trent says the pizza is fabulous.
Bring your own wine, $3 corking fee per bottle.
I need to reserve the room Friday, and probably need to give him a number of diners by Monday.
The Vandy-UT football game is at 11:30 that morning, so traffic and parking are not much of a problem come the afternoon.
Soooo, if you are interested, please let me know ASAP. Please let me know if you approve of this menu or want something different. Dinner will be at 5:00pm. Cash only.
This is the email I will send, please approve or not, or edit-
Only change I would make is to say "List your two favorites from the menu, I'll tally the results and we'll do the three most popular."
And what did they do about beer last year? Was there a "pop the top" fee?
I will do. I do not remember about beer.
That means you had too much.
