Who is interested? I was looking at the calendar, and I thought Thursday, December 4 at 6:30pm looks good. (Thursdays are always our most popular meeting nights!)

Should we plan on ordering chocolate and cheese again? I thought it worked out well last year, and it was much more affordable.

Please respond if you are able to make it. We need to have a reservation.

List of who's coming (12):
* Jennifer
* Shana
* Vanessa
* Heather
* Amanda
* Emilee - tentative
* Mary
* Courtney H. - dropping
* Chelsea G.
* Bad Mama Jama
* Jennifer A. - dropping
* Mary
* Michelle
* Emily

This sounds awesome, but I'm going to have to sit this one out. I can't do dairy anymore (it causes James to spit up) and chocolate and cheese fondue are just too much of a yummy temptation.

Have fun!!

Here's a link to the menu. You could order something else if you'd like. Last year, there was a gal on a restricted diet who ordered a salad.

Jennifer, I think last year we started at 6 or 6:30. I remember being shocked by how much worse the rush hour traffic was, and attributing it to the earlier time. I wouldn't mind the earlier time, since I will probably have to bring dd2 with me, and will need to get her home to bed.

The earlier the better, IMO. If we say 6 PM, most people will show up a bit later anyway, then there will be some socializing before we even order food. I doubt there will be food on the tables before 6:30 PM. The earlier we make it, the more time I have to hang out , so I vote for 6 PM even though it means battling rush hour.

Hi! I'm Emily. Heather invited me along, and I'd really like to join if there's room. I haven't had much of a chance to post on mdc, but I did make it out to one mama's night with my little boy, Wyatt, a few months ago. I'm hoping that he'll be up for staying with his Nanna for the evening so I can make it out, as long as there's room. Looking forward to meeting/seeing you all!
