experiment #29 - 12/17/12

If you missed out on the last round, good news: we've got another experiment coming up.

Quick Details:
Date: Monday December 17, 2012
Price: ~$125 including pairing (inclusive of tax & tip)
Start time: likely 7:00-7:30pm

This one will be a little different even for us. Without disclosing too much, (1) we'll be working with an out-of-town chef who's been doing something of a traveling roadshow very similar in spirit to Cobaya; and (2) we'll be doing one fixed price with either an alcoholic or non-alcoholic pairing (or BYOB if you choose, but same price). Not a change in philosophy or anything; just something different. We're pretty excited.

Otherwise, it's pretty much the same routine. We will be doing a drawing for seats from all requests received over the first 48 hours, with additional requests filled, if possible, in the order they're received.

Please send an email to to request seats, and let us know how many you're requesting.

You will be advised by Friday December 7 if your request has been confirmed. You'll then need to book your seats by noon on Tuesday December 11, or we may need to release them to the waitlist to ensure all spots are filled.

We have limited seating and while we try to accommodate everyone who is interested, that is usually not possible - most events are filled very quickly. We may need to limit seat requests to 2 per person - if you'd like more, let us know and we'll keep track of a "wish list" and fill if possible.

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.

Confirmed and paid-up attendees will receive an e-mail the day before the event, confirming the location and other details.

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.

Plus some legalese: please note that if you're requesting a spot, you understand that any food or beverages you consume are at your own risk, that you voluntarily assume any and all risks, known and unknown, and voluntarily release the organizers of the event from any claims, including personal injury and wrongful death, resulting in any manner from your participation in this event, whether caused by negligence or otherwise. Hopefully it won't come to that.

Look forward to seeing you there. As always, thank you for your support.
