singlemaltsilk has been pushing a wonderful-sounding little Italian place which is not insanely far from the Cap hotel. She informs us that the clueful will have reservations. I am not definitely committing to anything yet, but if I knew that a table full of people I wanted to talk to were willing to commit, before the con, to joining me at a specific time, I would probably be willing to call the restaurant to make reservations. Please let me know if you'd be interested, and check back closer to the con and see what's developed. My perfect world has me getting a table for 4, so I'm not personally trying to handle everyone who's made mmMMMmm noises in response to Silk's descriptions of the food; I'm just testing the waters here and now.
