One last reminder: 

Our first-ever (hopefully annual) SVLUG/PenLUG Holiday banquet is
tomorrow night!  If you haven't signed up yet, please do so now.  For
details about the event please visit the page on PenLUG's Web site:

Just a few points of information that I wanted to pass on...

FAMILY & FRIENDS: There are already a few families with kids
   attending; don't be shy about bringing your spouse and kids (just
   be sure you can keep an eye on them).  Plus, the restaurant owners
   have a 7-year-old boy who is always looking for friends to show his
   Lego creations to!  Please let me know in your RSVP how many are

LOCATION: This is Chef WANG'S, not Chef CHU'S.  The latter is an
   upscale restaurant at the corner of San Antonio and El Camino,
   which is more well known, but Chef Wang's is just a couple of
   blocks south from there on El Camino so some people get them
   confused.  (Or put another way, it's across the street from

MENU: I have confirmed that there is NO MSG in the food at Chef
   Wang's, not for this dinner or at any other time.  We will have a
   buffet containing a variety of the most popular dishes, selected
   according to the input I received from people who RSVP'd; if those
   don't meet your needs you can still order off the menu (though you
   may need to pay extra).

SCHEDULE: Appetizers (vegetarian egg rolls, tuna skewers, and pork pot
   stickers) will be served starting at 6:50 with main courses coming
   around 7:20.  But if you aren't able to get away from work on time,
   that's OK, we'll just send a fresh order to the kitchen :-)

BOOZE: This will be a dry (no alcohol) event.  Recently, a waiter (who
   has since been sacked) failed to check ID on a customer and the
   liquor license was suspended.  Normally they have a full bar
   complete with karaoke.  Sorry if this is a problem.

Remember, the dinner is tomorrow, so get your RSVP to me ASAP!
