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.

Sadly going to miss this year's dinner. The first since 2001 too.
That night is Halloween and next year I'm obligated to miss out on taking my kid Trick-or-Treating, so I'm taking the evening off to be with him.

Sorry folks, hope y'all have a great time

We picked up one more, but I didn't write their name down. No matter. Here's the news:

1) Though I only have 18 confirmations, I made an arrangement with the management for 30. So, encourage all your friends who never saw this thread, or the discussion on Discord, to join us; there should be plenty of room.

2) I couldn't keep my promise. The dinner is now scheduled for 6:30. At 6:40 they will start giving away our extra seats. This is because the restaurant normally doesn't make reservations for 6pm or later. However people do come and go, so if you're around a little late because of travel arrangements, you might still want to stop by. I'm looking at you, Rider.

3) The weather promises to be awful, with temperatures dropping into the low 50s around the time we should head to the restaurant, and into the low 40s around the time we head back. It will also rain, though that's /supposed/ to be over before our time... no bets. You probably want to dress warm, bring an umbrella, or take a Uber back and forth.

4) If you want to go in a group, we will meet in the lobby around 5:45, and start walking at 6:00 sharp. They won't seat us until our "whole" party is there, and I also promised them a call at 6 with an updated count so they could start releasing some tables early if they needed to (or start wondering where to put us, if our numbers double). You should look for the skinny guy in a Hawaiian shirt with a beard and cane. That will be me.

Any questions?

I guess I can drive down the street and around the corner to see some of you nerds this evening.
