Pavon and I will pledge that nobody goes hungry!
We'll throw dinner together on Friday for those with a hardy appetite. Mike Frankoff and I are starting the cooking team; others welcome to jump in too. We'll grill steaks, baked potatoes, salad, starter, etc. Perhaps a fine "cardboardeux" to complement the meal will be nice. Bring your own whisky, or we can just wait for Alex to show up and drink his like always. We'll split costs, and will put out a tip jar and expect everyone to contribute their share... should only be about $12 or $15. What a bargain, and you won't have to fight that POC traffic, make a reservation, pay for valet parking, or tip your waiter. I expect we'd have the captain's meeting at the same time.
Of course on Saturday evening you'll have the chance once again to experience the finest culinary delights of the Texas gulf coast, as John prepares his world reknowned paella. I'll let John describe that bit of creme de la creme; he's the artiste' for that event...
Golden says he's planning to add holes to his belt in preparation for the event. I'm thinking elastic might be easier!
Come hungry and ready for fun!
