As I posted about earlier today, I’ll be in San Francisco tomorrow night for dinner with my favorite flight attendant and lots of you guys!

Due to my move I was a bit late in getting working on the reservation, so reader David volunteered to help, and got us a table tomorrow night at 6:30PM at TXOKO. The table is for ~19 people and under the name “David,” so please post below if you’ll be able to make it. I’m not sure how many checks they’ll be able to put the dinner on, so please try to bring cash just in case we can’t all pay by credit card.

Would be great to see lots of you there!

    No credit cards for this crowd!? That would be disastrous.

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard you use that rather intriguing term before.

    Is it a new acronym or some sort of trendy West Coast slang?

    Which brand and alliance is cash connected with?

    How many bonus points does cash offer?

    Does cash impose a fuel surcharge?

    Can you double dip with cash?

    How many times do you have to use cash before the “make it rain” rebate comes into effect?

    A rather pricey place, Lucky!
    I sure hope you’re getting a kickback, as you’re running up a $1,200 bill for sure between 20 people. Without alcohol.

    Thanks for arranging, see you there!

    @ Erik @ Frank @ noah @ Dan @ Jackson @ Jason @ Sandeep — Awesome, look forward to seeing you there!

    @ Nat Arem @ Dax — Hah! For such a large group they’re sometimes not willing to split checks, so maybe we can have some trivia to see who gets to put the total on their card. :D

    @ Levy Flight — Tampa? Pssh, what a dump!

    @ Alex — So is that a yes? ;)

    @ deux centimes — Options are usually limited for such a large group, and most restaurants wanted to do a prix fixe menu, which would have been much more expensive.

    @ Bob Law — There may very well be an after party, so feel free to stop by and maybe you can join us for that if you’d like!

    It’s a great choice: Mr. Fancy Pants-worth Basque-y food. Sous chef is Basque. I ate there earlier this year and everything was great. Not quite San Sebastian or Bilbao but very nice for USA.

    Sadly, I can’t make it… :-(

    Dax said,

    I’d be up for dinner and I generally carry at least some cash but I would need to have lots of notice and/or have it be on a weekend or something.

    Perhaps you should plan something a few months out to see if you can get a few hundred people to commit. Maybe get in touch with a manager and offer some sort of discount to a favorite restaurant or hotel or whatever. Although other blogs may cover more topics or go into more detail I think a blog like yours would probably attract a nice mix of serious and casual travelers from all over. Maybe even a few flyover cities like mine.

    And that’s important, because hardcore business travelers kind of creep me out a little in large numbers. Haven’t you ever been reading a book or messing with your phone while you’re at an airport restaurant or bar and then there’s a chill that streaks down your spine causing you to look up and see a large number of hardcore business travelers surrounding you from every angle? They may look tame and docile on the surface but deep down you know if there’s a delay or other complication they may become suddenly agitated and highly aggressive without any warning.

    Yeah. Just like that.

    Anyway, what was I saying? Oh, right, have the next event somewhere in Texas. We’ve got all of the usual chain crap with none of the unique trendy stuff to clutter up your options.

    I had a great time, and I know Janesis enjoyed the dinner as well. To those of you that thought all of this was creepy, it’s all in your head. :D
