I’m thinking end of June when my kids are gone.
So let’s kick around ideas.
Scott was going to check with Kabul, Afghan food.
Andrew and Larry had Divino and someplace else.

Btw George - I had a really good meal at Paul Martins - not sure what happened with your meal last time.

======================

Date June 25

Place Divino

Time 6:30pm

Winers -

Yah we need more climbers in the group!
So here are the dates I was thinking:
June 18
June 25
July 2

I know summer is tricky with family vacations and such, so we may have a smaller gathering.

Any chance we could do Sunday? Easier for me to bring nice bottles that I'm not allowed to open if my husband isn't there :)

No worries if that's not possible; I'll still try to make it

Those June dates look good for me, as do Sunday the 17th and 24th (but not July 1st or 2nd).

Iberia in Belmont was an intriguing suggestion of Andrew's. http://www.iberiarestaurant.com/menu/

Divino looks really good, too. http://divinobelmont.com/menus/dinner-menu/

One of those would be good, especially if Andrew can make it.

The owner of Iberia proposed a fixed menu of paella and tapas for $35/head (exclusive of tax and service) with a minimum headcount of 12 peeps and $10/bottle corkage. I never made a counter, but the day we could guarantee 12, then I would try to work on the corkage a bit more (us bringing stems, put a flat corkage fee on the bill or something like that). We keep driving by the place and forgetting about it so we have never eaten there, but I think a few have.

If everyone is amenable, I can call Divino and ask for the 18th.

Yes, Divino on the 18th sounds good.

Also, there are plenty more people to draw on if we need to increase the headcount for a dinner.

Oh dang - I may not make 18th. I just looked at the calendar and my kids fly out the following day for the summer.
No problem if this date works for everyone else.
I can sit this one out.

18th is a little tough for me, have to pick up my wife at OAK at 6:30. So getting her home, then coming across the Bay to San Mateo is probably not practical. If we pick another date, Iberia sounds great, otherwise I may have to miss it. Uber is possible, let me negotiate with her ;)

Doc, there should be no problem with headcount. I haven't called yet but they have a private room that will seat up to 50 and then semi-private space that will do 10-40.....so we could make this a real blowout if so desired. BTW for anyone needing, this is really close to the Belmont CalTrain......or if anyone needs pickup, I can grab them at San Carlos.

Please put Sandi down as a maybe. She really likes the food at Divino. However, she won't go if she's the only woman there.

Just as an fyi - Scott also checked with Kabul in San Carlos and they’re willing to have us on a Monday waiving corkage.
Good Afghan food.

I've done a few small wine dinners (4-6 folks) at Kabul. I'll second Dan on the food. Love the lamb kebabs!

The 25th works for me. Dan, please add me to the list.
As Dan mentioned, Kabul seems really accommodating, and easy to book on short notice. Lots of good kebab options. Maybe for a future dinner.
We've been to Iberia, and that would also be a good choice sometime.

We are good to go at Divino for the 25th @ 6:30 pm. The owner gave us the option of ordering off the menu, or we can give him a per head budget and they will put together a menu..........LMK.

With the 2011 red burg "taint" thread going, how about a mini-theme of 2011 red burgs, for those of us who own them?

And Craig and I still have the 98 Vieux Telegraphe comparison to do.

No 2004 reds and the only 2011 I have is Bourgogne "Perrieres", Simon Bize. I don't think that's got enough pedigree to bring, but I certainly can if you all are ok with it. Maybe, a 2011 Chablis (tbd). Hey, at least it's reasonably close to the theme!
