I can’t make this due to surgery....

I will try and get some guys together in Feb as it has been too long.

So I’m gonna do this -
I’ll say possible dinners for March 9 and March 23.
Part of the reason I suggest this is because our attending numbers have grown, so it may work out to do two.
Or it may not.

Having said that, please chime in and say which you can do, including if you will do both.
I’ll (try to) keep track of two running lists and if numbers of attendees are good, we can do both.

As for venue - Solé and ?

I'm with Alan and if given a choice for Sole, the 23rd over the 9th. Most likely, I'll only go to one dinner.

I can do either date (or both) and would also definitely go to the one at Sole. If there's space, I'd like to add Laura...

I could do both. Agree it's time for a Sole visit. Wouldn't mind Yuzu again (which would be a Tuesday).

I'd like to go to Sole, March 9 is preferred but I can probably do the 23rd.

If sushi is a request, I can work something out with Gintei in San Bruno, I'm VIP there lol.

Since the 16th is no longer an option I'm even more iffy. I hope to be able to pick a date once my schedule is up.
As for a 2nd option restaurant Andrew T has mentioned on numerous occasions going to Sapore in Burlingame.

I don’t think Gintei is a good idea. They are more of a upscale sushi spot and I don’t think our vibe is good for them. I haven’t seen a private room and the dining room is Very Quiet. But I am willing to try, just keeping it real.

Food is good though...

Newer member here based out of San Jose. This forum has been such an incredible source of knowledge for me, glad I finally decided to sign up for an account! Would be interested in either the 9th or 23rd.

So this point onward, I will add to the list.
Please declare a date - one or both.
I won’t add you if you say you can do either...just tell me which one, or both.

I’ll have Daniel check in on Gintei for 23rd.
If it falls thru, we could also consider Yuzu 24th?

It we're doing raw fish on the 23rd/24th, I'm in for that, too. Otherwise, I'm undecided.

If so, let me know so I can get Yuzu up.
Having said that, we can aim for 24th?
