    Due to a busy schedule, I will only be attending the brunch @ Pulino's on 3/4.

    I am the same, though NYBanker did a very good job with an alternative for Saturday night!

    Just want to make sure I'm on the confirmed list for both the evening and brunch events.

    You need to change the headings to 'Pulino's'!;)

    Whoops, you’re right. Doing that now.

    Update time: Just spoke with Pulino’s GM since I hadn’t gotten an email back to my requests, and we’re good to go with 23 people now. See the adjusted Confirmed/Maybe/WaitList below, and get back to me if you want to change something.

    Further, he reiterated that they’d suggest us getting some pre-orders in to them in advance so that we don’t end up waiting a long time because 23 orders go in at once. So, again, please check out their menu, and let’s put an advance list together of some appetizers, a pizza or 4, etc. There’ll be no problem if someone decides on the day that he/she/they want something not mentioned before, but at least we’ll get some eats out to us quickly if we do some pre-ordering. I’m open to suggestions from all attendees; the menu’s attached again, below; I’ve started off with some suggestions, also below.

    As far as ordering food in advance, I suggest some pizzas that can be cut into small appetizer-size pieces. We can them have that while we decide on more substantive entries.
    • Original Member

    Okay. Have a suggestion for a pizza you’d like? We’ll just make it pizza and salad to start, and everyone can then order what they want, and it’ll take what time it takes. I’m a little wary of them having to do 23 separate checks, so let’s see if small groupings of people will decide to split one amongst themselves, okay?

    BTW, we have one person who’s mentioned to me allergy, and may wish to order completely separately. I’m waiting for more details. Anyone else with things they can’t/won’t eat?

    No allergies here, and pizza is good for me. I just prefer no fishies, no mushies, no olives. Ya, I'm NOT Italian. hehe. I can pick things off though. Otherwise, whatever on a pizza is cool. Maybe I should just suck it up and go with the flow though. ;) Would be great for me to have the great NYC pizza:D Here out in the northwest, they just don't make pizza like they do back east.

    Jubileesmom Gold Member

    Oh ya, salad too. I prolly won't be ordering much else;) besides maybe drinks? hehe

    I have a food allergy. It can be serious because mustard/mustard seed is in a lot of dressings, etc and that is a challenge for me at times eating out.

    I agree with the small groups and the bill.

    I think most of us would be flexible to eat any assortment of pizza and salad starters that are put in front of us. Anything served on china is like eating in first class, right?

    How about enough starters for 3/4 of us and we can also order additional starters at the restaurant for those who need to do so.

    Are there any food allergies out there other than dairy, mustard seed, and a preference for no seafood?

    I can bring some UA dishes and cups.. Make it feel even more like an F meal :p
    • Original Member

    Jubileesmom Gold Member

    Oh, and don't leave out seafood on my account, if that is the case. I just don't prefer it on my pizza:D I have also become more tolerant and appreciative in my older years here. So, it won't kill me to include it. ;)
    Now, I'm not sure why, but the pear salad and pizza seem to attract my attention. I have never had this but? Heck, maybe I will try it on my own
    • Original Member

    From NYC Gold Member

    Wasn’t planning on leaving out seafood; just noting that someone else had that preference. Now there’re 2 of you. :)

    If others want in on the pear salad and pizza, write up and we’ll make that one of the pre-orders.:cool:

    I'm sorry to say, I won't be able to make it. No brunch for me but good news for someone on the wait list. Have fun everyone!
    Sent a PM to 'From NYC' regarding changing RSVP to no.

    Sorry to be missing you, and thanks for letting me know right away.:)

    I’m going to move RapidTravelChai+1 up from the waiting list to Robin’s spot in Post #217 so that they can be there together (see #13 in the list of Confirmeds), and NYCAdventurer was unsure of making it.

    Hmm, wondering if Pulino's will provide kitty bags (as opposed to doggie bags) for taking out the uneaten food. That way, if I ordered the pear pizza for myself even, I could take what I didn't eat on site back to my hotel for dinner (or later night snacking pleasure) Sunday night. I'll have a suite:D

    If we'll be done at the R Bar by 7:30pm, why not go to dinner around 8:15ish? 10pm seems kind of late to have a steak dinner..
