Next Tuesday, 12/14/04
at Tabla on NE 28th between Burnside and Glisan

We celebrate Portlandfood.org's first anniversary and we appreciate Nick Zukin for starting us on this wonderful path of food and friendship!

We all pitch in and buy Nick whatever he wants and honor the Food God in a manner in which he should be accustomed!

Best regards,

Amanda

Not to offend, but I don't know if people know this about me: I loathe adulation, especially when directed at me.

OK, I can comply. We'll loathe and roast Nick instead, but still pay for whatever he consumes! It is now called PortlandFood.org First Anniversary/& Zukin Roast & Non-Apprecation Night! Is that better???

(snicker) Hey, whatever gets us back to Tabla! Toast and roast sounds good to me!

Oh, wait...now that I looked at the calendar...I have a prior engagement that I can't get out of. Oops. Sorry.

Dammit! I wish I could be there, but I'm obligated to attend my sweetie's professional association meeting (oh boy!). I will certainly be thinking of you all, eating yummy food and getting crazy.

(Would anyone want to repeat this on Dec 21?)

What time was my question...

So 6:30pm on Tuesday 12/14 @ tabla on NE 28th a block or two south of Glisan (or, a few blocks north of Burnside, if you prefer)?

Who's going to do final headcount and call to make the reservation?

Wow, we may be able to try almost everything on the menu... The short ribs are soooo amazing....mmmm....

:D

Got a reservation for tomorrow night at 6:30 pm. I don't think it'd be a problem to add a couple people if I'm able to call them back ahead of time, so if you know anyone else that wants to go, post or email me.

Me too! No office Christmas party. Bummer. :roll: I'd rather be a Tabla anyway.

Now, if only Aristo and his wife would join us tomorrow night. Then it would be the original 8 of us that met up last year!!! I believe his wife was there with us that first time, wasn't she? Anyway, it sounds like most of us will be returning to share the experience once more!

And appreciation of Nick is neither required nor desired as far as he is concerned, but as far as I'm concerned....IT IS!!!

In fact...In my own twisted mind I've already started Zukin Appreciation WEEK. He, he he!!!

Best regards,

Amanda

You're already signed up if you posted! ;o)

Welcome Angelhair!

Look around the threads to see what we are planning. (We are talking about happy hour at Andina, will schedule another dim sum outing for 1/9, and we will plan another thing for January soon...which we should start talking about soon, BTW).

And hey, if you want to come to tabla tomorrow night with us, let ExtraMSG know and he will add you to the reservation.
