I am interested depending on date.
I can offer the alpine or family farm

I’ll bring the Rivers-Marie.

Please remove the probably. Just avoid 4/4 - 4/10 please.

Date dependent. Any Friday if possible.

Interested, depending on the date.

I am interested dependent upon time and place.

I can do anything but the '08 Skyline Pinot.

I can bring the Skyline.

I’m interested depending on date, though I don’t own any Rhys. I’m happy to source.

Josh- you can have one from my 2.
Keith any date in mind?

Interested! put me down for a Syrah.

Definitely interested. I’ll see what I have.

I can bring either the Horseshoe or Skyline Pinot - I think they are on their way.

I’m going to toss out 4 possible dates:
Wed 4/13
Thu 4/14
Wed 4/20
Thu 4/21

Preferences, availability?
I’m thinking Peking Duck House for a venue, cheap and easy.

I would prefer 4/14 or 4/21. I could probably make 4/13. 4/20 appears to be the second night of Passover which may be a problem for me (and potentially others).

right now all dates are golden.

Why not put me down for the Chardonnay and the Bearwallow.

I can only make a Friday or Saturday dinner. I’m now working nights Sunday-Thursday.

I am on the list twice at #3 and #8
