FAQ #1:

What is the time for dinner?
I expect it to be 7pm, however, once I have the numbers I will be at the mercy of The Cheesecake Factory to let me know when they'll be able to accommodate us. However, in no circumstance will it be any earlier than 7pm. There's just not enough time for enough people to make it from the airport.

Can we move it to Friday? I want to do [redacted].
I thought about this long and hard. Many of us have family, and might want to be home for Halloween on Thursday. Many of us have made other plans. However, the simple fact is it's difficult to coordinate an event of this size and make everyone happy. The restaurant was already told to expect us on Thursday, and they're just waiting on numbers now. Everyone here was told to expect Thursday, and I don't want to pull the rug out from under anyone who has already said yes. And Friday is a much more interesting day at AWA that I don't want to try to pull people away from. So I'm afraid my answer is "no". You can still see all your friends in The VAT, Cheesecake Factory is open all weekend, and you're allowed to eat on days that don't start with a "T". You may not eat on any day ending in a letter other than "Y". This will be enforced in all English speaking countries.

My flight gets in at 6:39pm so it all depends on traffic for me.
Ouch. Well, it usually takes us two hours at least to eat... call my cell and I'll let you know how things look when you're close.

Had a change in plans, and so I'll be missing the dinner this time around
