Meeting Details...

     The meetings are always free, but dinner is not (unless you are our
     guest speaker, in which case we also treat you to dinner).  For
     Henry's Hunan Restaurant, if folks are agreeable, we'll share and
     dine "family" style, and split up the costs, and typical cost per
     person including tax and tip (but not including beverages beyond
     complementary tea) would be in the $15.00 to $31.00 range, and
     commonly around $18.00 to $27.00.  Cash preferred to ease splitting
     up the check.  One can also specifically order the dish(es) one
     needs/prefers (e.g. for dietary considerations) - and we also
     commonly order some dish(es) that may meet various dietary
     considerations) (e.g. vegetarian, non-pork, ...). Punctual arrival
     recommended for optimal dining experience, as we expect to be
     ordering at that time.
     At approximately 7:00 P.M. we start our presentation/talk, or more
     informal talk/discussion if we don't have a particularly
     presentation/talk/presenter or special guest arranged.
