If it's the 17th, I'm committed elsewhere till at least 12:30ish, so the absolute earliest I could be there is 1- 1:30...  (unless someone else will switch shifts with me, but I doubt it...)
The 18th is completely open for us, however

I found out at my family gathering today that the 17th is my niece's birthday party, so I'm out, as well. 18th, I could, but not 17th.
Y'all have fun.

Though I tend to have a fairly flexible schedule on Saturdays, it looks like the 17th won't work for me after all. The 18th is still possible, but I won't know for another week or so.

I'm waiting to hear on Buddy's availability for the 18th. It would be no fun without him.

Sorry gang, but I'm otherwise engaged on the 18th.
 
Also, keep in mind, the same requirement as the last private party; minimum of 20-25 people for Burt to open up early.
 
If it's going to be 18 or less, you can still put together a reservation during regular business hours.  We'll put you at two tables right next to each other; basically you'll occupy the southwest corner of the room.
 
But I'll still be unavailable on the 18th.  I'll be participating in a very scientific study group, evaluating little blue pills...

Gosh, I am so sorry that the 17th is not good for us. Bob IS leaving for China that day, and my boss asked if I REALLY needed the day off as we are very short handed.  
I so want to:
a) Try Burt's
b) see Jim and Bobbie before they are permanently in Arizona

What's the big deal?  If I correctly understand the researcher who called me, the little blue pills will take away the stress of the upcoming presidential campaign.  He said I would have an easier time with the election. The way I figure, by November of 2012, no matter who you're voting for, we're all going to have a bad case of electile dysfunction.
 
On the other hand, he said it would make the election last a lot longer, so I'm not sure I'm happy with that...

Mr. Maki and I just got invited to a family thing on the 17th at 3:30 that's semi-optional- what's the latest a pre-business hour party would go before Burt kicks us out?  If the pizza party ends early enough, we can go to both...or if we do something during business hours that starts a little later (6:30 or so, I'm thinking), that would work, too.

If this happens, it will run from noon to 3:00pm.
 
Still, we need a minimum of 20-25 people before Burt will do a private party.  So far, I'm only counting nine people who want in.

But that's 20-25 normal people.  I'm sure that if Buffetbuster and ChiTownDiner attended we'd easily have the functional equivalent.

That's true.  However, CTD has already sent his regrets; leaving buffetbuster to pick up the slack.  As prodigious as his pizza capacity may be, you can only expect one man to do so much.

All this talk of pizza is making me hungry. No one down here does a pizza like Burt...or even a deep dish....but I keep searching.
Hope it comes together. Have fun y'all.

I am adding 5 more to the list.  My friend Fat Sal will be there with his new wife & family.  I think that makes the total 14, so the private party is still an outside possibility. 
 
The back-up plan is dinner for a smaller group upon Burt's opening at 4:30.  We'll make that call this weekend.
 
BTW - Pie Diva is threatening to bring dessert.

Make sure you bring enough for Burt, Sharon, and me.
 
Keep me posted on the plans and I'll do my best to grease the wheels and make everything move swimmingly.

If things move to 4:30pm, CTD is in for 1.  I finish my grilling duties for 200 at 3pm....

I WAS able to switch my shift on the 17th, so I am free for a  12 noon start if that is what it still is...
so at least 2 of my crew should be able the make it, 
maybe more but It's hard for me to speak for teenage boys-
still-PIZZA....
and it's BURT's PIZZA...

Buddy,
Thanks for the invite. I regret to inform you that we won't be around that week end.

OK folks, here's the official word:  If we want to have a private party before regular business hours on Saturday, September 17th, the minimum number of people is 25.  If we can't put together a group that large for a private party we can accommodate a maximum of 16 people in one group during regular business hours.
 
So, I guess it comes down to a first come, first served situation.  I'll be working at Burt's on Thursday the 15th.  Anyone who wants to be part of the group of 16 on that Saturday needs to get me a pizza order by 1:00pm on Thursday.  Everybody needs to agree on a time, and I need to know if you're going to want one check or separate checks.
 
That's the best I can do for a group during regular business hours.  Please respond here on the thread so we all know what's going on.
 
Thanks, and I hope I'll see as many of you as possible, sometime on Saturday.
 
Buddy

Mr. Maki's out- we're both doing a "gastronomic lifestyle change" (because I hate the word "diet", and it's inaccurate in this case) and the first two weeks are pretty restrictive.  He doesn't want to fall off the wagon because he knows it will be a lot harder to get back on it, so he's going to go to that family event and I'm coming to Burt's, whatever time we decide on. 
 
Are we still trying to get the 25 people to have the party before business hours?  If so, I can ask a few friends if they'd be available.  If we want to just go for doing something during business hours, I won't ask.

Buddy -
In addition to Abe's question...
If it becomes the 16 person regular hours, do we know the time?  I'm working on a tight schedule of availability between 4-6pm.  This should not dictate the time, but if it falls into this window...I'm in and will have an instantaneous pizza order!
