    If I can make the show, I am definitely in. Those are all great choices on the restaurant list. Prefs: Maggiano's as first choice then either PFC or Besito's.

    If this is the same Maggiano's as in Philadelphia and elsewhere, their entire menu is rigged for large tables / family-style dining.

    I think PF Changs. Sushi and Vodka for us Jock.

    Mike, thanks for all your efforts. The cancellations are frustrating as we have to keep calling the restaurant to change things. They think we are jokers! Appreciate you doing this.
