Montreal - December

Gents, we've been mulling over having an off-line prior to the Holidays (which is now dangerously close).

There is a highly rated and yet untried (by us) BYO in town

RAZA

Any interest in us putting something together? Maybe even over the Holiday period?

Just throwin' it out there Cool

I'm pretty open to weekend dates (or even weekdays between Xmas and the first week of the New Year).

Others want to chime in (positive or negative) to the overall timeline and preferred dates?

If we do indeed do this, we'll likely need to reserve 2-3 weeks prior with the restaurant methinks.

Count me out for before Christmas.
All the next three weekends are already booked.

As for during the holidays, I'm still waiting for the rest of our family's plans as when they will be around.

We should be good, either before or between.

Haven't hooked with you guys for a while, so I shall try and squeeze in the off-line.

Can't make it this month, but we'll be in town for the Grand Prix again in June.

We could likely do these dates.
Do these dates work for others as well?

Just how 'outside' are we talking here, bman? Razz

Pretty outside. By which I mean, I have not yet spoken to mrs bman, who made me promise that when I came home for Christmas we would stay put and not head off anywhere! Devilish But if you plan it, we may come! Popcorn

Who's in?

bman (2?)
Impulse (2)
mimik (2?)
steve8 (2)
lovelandre (1?)
vinaigre (2?)

Back in the day (when we used to count points Razz ) this would traditionally be our "95+ Supper" Wink

We're tentative for the 28th. The 29th would be better for us if both dates are still in play?

Bman, put a coat on because that sounds pretty outside to me. Big Grin

mrs. bman says she cannot think of anything she would like better than to spend an evening with a bunch of winegeeks slurping expensive juice and boring her to tears talking about it - and their much better halves. A little bit more the latter than the former, I expect.

So we're in! But we can only do it on the 28th.

Will there be a theme?

As Mimik would say:

C and I are maybe able to probably be a possible tentative, but were not 100% sure yet.

Alright I phoned RAZA, and they just phoned back, with the following response:

They were planning on being closed Dec 28th, but are willing to open with the following criteria:

Minimum 15 people
8 Course degustation Menu (including foie gras): $90/person
(meaning not a multi-choice menu but pre-set)

So that means we'll need commitments. If this doesn't work, no stress. BUT, if we are to do this, we'll need to confirm this pretty quickly (by Monday I think)

What say ye? IN or OUT Smile
