    OK. Creating a new post as I need assistance with attendees. I reserved seating for 20 in front room. But if we have a party larger than 25 then we get a bigger back room, faster service and discounted pricing.

    Please respond ASAP if you’d like to attend by saying YES in your reply. I need to find out quickly if we can get numbers over 25 as the back room may get booked.

    Basil’s on Market is confirmed for Friday Aug 16th at 6PM.

    Here’s location:
    18 N Market St, Troy, OH 45373

    Let’s get the numbers up!

    OK

    So far, the number is:

    me: 2
    Bill (USN-1) - 1
    Matt (Mr. Kenmore) - 2
    Jeff the bum - 2, maybe 4
    Jeff Campbell - 2
    ih200 - 3
    Alberti and his dad - 2
    Winchested - 3 (2 kids)
    David Banner - 1
    my75Alfa - 1

    That puts us at 21 minimum

    I expect Ned and his wife may join

    Jason Roedel gave me a thumbs up, but not sure what his plans are.

    I'll post one last time on a couple other facebook forums to see if I can get over 25 people. Once we're at capacity, that's it, so first come first serve.

    ok...added. Todd Sommer (ScoutDoc) and Mike Richardson also joined, along with Chad South and his brother.

    I am going to reserve the bigger private room at Basil's on Market if it is still available

    Ok. I’m at 26 now. I reserved the back room. They will be providing us two servers, full bar access, good scenery and good food.

    The prices vary. You need to purchase an entree and a beverage minimum. Assume around $20-24 per person. Options are:
    1. Prime steak such as Ny strip
    2 fettuccini dish
    3 salmon dish

    This is so they can serve us in a timely fashion and be efficient.

    If this price is too much for you, please let me know and I can remove you from the list. I can also provide directions to the nearest Wendy’s or McDonald's on request.

    The room can accommodate 38 people and I know the number will grow. So we have some overhead room

    If we do come (still up in the air according to my wife now) hopefully they have a gluten free option for food as my wife gets sick otherwise.

    I’m discussing the contract with the planner and exec chef shortly. I’ll be able to iron out the menu choices then. They gave some flexibility. But if I don’t get 25 people minimum then I eat the cost of no shows

    However I did inform them of our knuckle dragging status and Bill’s meat and potato/es stipulation. They believe they can accommodate our peculiar breed relatively easily.

    Everyone, I got the contract for Basil's on Market.

    Also posting the menu options for our large party. I will be tallying our party number in the coming weeks. I think we are over 30...Maybe more.
    We can't fit more than 40 people in the room, so late requesters over the 40 head limit wont be able to sit with us, unfortunately, unless they can find seating in the front room of the restaurant.

    If our party is below 35, then they reserve the right to take overflow from the main room and put in our room.

    This place has a great reputation and apparently very good food. I'm a charred flesh lover, so I will be opting for the 12 oz New York Strip.

    If you are a vegetarian, they may be able to accommodate you, but I was asked to please not have specific special requests so that the kitchen can serve us efficiently and with quality. Thanks for understanding.

    -Joe

    Bumping the thread to remind everyone of our dinner, scheduled on Friday, Aug 16th, 6PM at Basil's on Market, in Downtown Troy
    I just sent in a signed contract with a credit card number, guaranteeing 30 attendees. If we don't get 30 attendees like I originally counted, then I end up footing the bill for no shows. So, please join your friends at BP and let's keep the numbers nice and high! I hope more than 30 of you join me!

    If you haven't confirmed you will be with us yet, please do so now, either with a PM, or as a reply to this thread.

    Thanks!

    As a reminder, several of our seminar givers will be present to chat about topics of interest to you.

    Also, informally, I plan to have an early morning breakfast at the Bob Evans restaurant across from the hotels on Sunday morning if anyone would like to join us. So far, it sounds like Bill Hamilton and I, but perhaps our numbers will grow as well.

    Joe T.
