As long as it's three ounces or less and you pack it in your TSA-approved one-quart clear plastic zip-top bag :wink:.

Geesh. Rules, rules, rules. Doesn't the TSA know how important Sweet Bean Paste is to the fate of the world? :hmmm:

Oops, you're right. David, you'll have to leave your ammo and dynamite at home, but the sweet bean paste is probably OK.

Speaking of packing and bags and bringing stuff from home...

Are there any specific dress code requirements we need to be aware of? I've been to VTR before, and recall them having some "rules". It's a nice place. Not some dive bar. I believe up thread nancy did mention people would have time to go from day time wear to evening wear on Friday.. Maybe that is the only night of conern? Nothing is scheduled on thursday before the Tremont crawl. And I am guessing Saturday is going to be pretty casual since it is a private affair?

The "pantry staples" request reminded me about this crazy amazing Sea Salt that I have. I will bring some along and if anyone has a dish that needs a finishing salt it will be available. Otherwise our mode of transport doesn't leave much extra space after clothes and of course my knives.

The great thing about barbeque is that when you get hungry 3 hours later....you can lick your fingers

VTR's dress code is pretty straight forward: no ripped jeans. Nice jeans are okay, but if you want to fit in with the regular crowd, I would go khaki/dockers for men and a nice polo shirt. Basically business casual. Every other place we are going to is completely casual, especially the dinner we are cooking for ourselves on Saturday.

I would say that the Thursday Crawl destinations are business casual rather than completely casual. Especially Dante. (Though I suspect we'll be in the back room, so maybe it doesn't matter so much).

AMP 150 just put up their new website. Are any of those photos yours, Edsel and Tom? Menu looks so good!

Have we decided whether 10:30am is the best time for Sunday brunch, or should we make it 10am?

Nancy, I will double check with Steve and get back to you with our final plans.

I have two different fish sauces that I can bring if it will. Save a trip to the Asian market. Not sure what time I will get to the gathering but my guess is around 3.

Tom, I can bring a few bread baskets.

I have a late flight, so it doesn't matter to me. Plus, it's an easy to get there from where I will be.

Though I don't want it to be TOO breakfasty.. :)

One last correction to Chris's post - Greenhouse Tavern will be $70-73 (still waiting for that final confirmation) not $65 - had to make sure we'd have enough pigface for 30+ people!

And $30 for AMP 150 includes tax, you only need to add beverage and tip.

So far, we have ripe Cherry Peppers and Hungarians. We have green Anaheims and poblanos; nothing specifically Asian this year. Bob will check a couple of other varieties out there tomorrow. How much Thai Basil would you like?
