l4w-Never too late to RSVP. Consider yourself counted! I'll post the address, telephone number and simple directions as we get closer to the date.
MFL-I'll go through all the posts stating ingredient preferences and put together the order. I'll post the selection well in advance of the gathering and you all can comment, edit, make requests for anything not included.
My personal experience has been that the 14" size (large) will give us the optimal cook. I've found that the 16" and 18" sizes don't crisp up quite as well as the 14". There are eight pieces to a large. I will make sure that there will be enough of each variety so that all interested parties will get at least one piece of each of their stated favorite combinations. It is unlikely that most people in our group will eat more than three pieces of a large pizza, but I'll make sure there will be more than enough.
is interested in taking part in the whole meal deal (salad, garlic bread, pizza, soft drinks) it is a waste to go the prix fixe route. Plus if you want beer or wine, that would be an extra cost beyond the fixed price. I think the best option for our group is to just pay menu prices, ordering what we want and then splitting the bill as we have done at so many other meet ups. Those who drink beer/alcohol as opposed to soft drinks have always happily obliged the group by kicking in a few extra bucks. If anyone objects to that arrangement you can PM me to discuss it.
When placing the order I will be very conscious of the fact that I am committing other people's money and will make sure that we order in the most cost effective manner. I will estimate that, unless someone drinks an inordinate amount of beer or wine, the per head cost shouldn't exceed $10-15. I'll have a more solid number once I put together the pizza order.
And yes, Burt's is CASH ONLY
, so plan accordingly. There are ATMs within a few blocks of the restaurant for anyone who forgets to bring greenbacks.
Feel free to keep asking questions. I'll do my best to answer and resolve any issues.
