Excuse me for sending this message again because I know it got through to
at least a few videolibbers yesterday. But I did get a mail failure
response that indicates more than one member did not get this message,
and it is important that the message gets out.

24 people confirmed their interest in attending the VRT dinner at City
Lights of China Friday, Feb. 14 in Washington, DC - at the start of
the ALA Midwinter Meeting. When I called the restaurant to give a final
number of attendees, the manager just about croaked. My original
estimate
(based on prior dinners) was 10-16. I was told 24 is too many for a 7:00
reservation on a friday night (Valentines Day no less). It is doable at
6:30 however so it was necessary to change the reservation to that time.
REPEAT, ALA-VRT DINNER IS NOW SCHEDULED FOR 6:30pm NOT 7:00pm - and this
is one time that being fashionably late is taboo, in fact being a little
early would be considered very cool.

Apologies for not predicting this more accurately. So if you cannot make
it by 6:30pm, let me know ASAP and I will try to make a separate
reservation a little later.
