I'd be interested to join if there's still room.
Couple of places may be worth considering - the private rooms at either Town Restaurant in San Carlos or Donato Enoteca in Redwood City.

I like Town but don’t they charge a lot for the private room?
We could always go back to Donato or Divino.

Haven't been to Donato in a while. Just as long as there's not another fixed menu debacle (I missed that one).

Hey Larry,
When I made the reservation, we didn’t talk set menu or a la carte.
Do we need to specify?

Unless they said we had to make that choice, I don't see a need to. I wasn't there for the offline with the set menu, but folks were less than happy about the cost. My vote is a la carte. I still haven't heard back from Juan via email so I'm going to call.

Free for all or theme? I know many of you are in to big fruit bombs (which I have many of) but if we are going for the subtle side I need to dig around. :)

Very few of us like big fruit bombs unless they're old enough to have lost some oak and don't show heat. Age them for us LOL!

I have the 2016 PAX that got the high scores or an older Lagier Meredith Syrah? Requests? Could also bring a Bonny Doon BN Syrah 12 or 13 to go with Robert's 10. Let me know if anyone has a preference.
