cobaya experiment #19

Quick Details:
Date: Sunday September 18, 2011.
Price: $95-100 99pp (inclusive of tax & tip, final price point to be determined soon).
Start time: 6:30pm - 9:00pm (more info below).

We'll be doing something different this time around, with staggered seatings every half-hour between 6:30 and 9:00 pm rather than one big seating. When you respond, please let us know (1) your preferred time slots (6:30 / 7:00 / 7:30 / 8:00 / 8:30 / 9:00); and (2) if there are any times you would NOT be able to use. Being flexible will likely make it easier to get a spot. Also, if you'd like to put together a group of up to 8 people, let us know that too so you can be seated at the same time.

We will do a similar routine as the last few dinners, with a drawing for seats from all requests received by Wednesday Sept. 7, and additional requests filled, if possible, in the order they're received.

Otherwise the drill is the same as always: please send an email to request seats, and let me know how many you're requesting (use the "contact the underground" link on the right side of this page). You will be advised by Wednesday Sept. 7 if the request has been confirmed.

We have limited seating and while we try to accomodate everyone who is interested, that is usually not possible - most events are filled very quickly.

When your seat request has been confirmed, please book it using the PayPal link which will be set up on this page. Please do not book unless and until you've received a confirmation. When you do receive the confirmation, please book your seats through PayPal promptly. There will be a short window of time to book before seats need to be released back to the waitlist to make sure they're filled.

A brief, but important, refresher course on the whole Cobaya thing: there is no "menu". There are no choices. You'll be eating what the chef chooses to make for the night. If you have food related allergies, strict dietary requirements, religious restrictions; are salt sensitive, vegetarian, pescatarian, or vegan; don't like your meat cooked medium rare, or are pregnant: this meal is probably not for you. Do not expect white-glove service. Don't ask for your sauce on the side. Just come and enjoy.

Confirmed and paid-up attendees will receive an e-mail on Friday September 16, 2011, confirming the location and other details.

As always, thank you for your interest.
