    Editing a thread doesn't appear to show existing post. and copy/paste loses the formatting. So,
    Repeat Dinner – “Family style” pass around platters and Indian influenced cuisine
    should be
    Repeat Dinner – “Family style” pass around platters and Asian influenced cuisine

    hi rudi,

    As usual, you noticed some tings that I didn't! The "family style" serving at the Repeat dinner must be either new or sporadic since it wasn't used in Sept. I do miss the turndown cards and towel art. How was your trip?

    Hi Gary_and_Patti.

    The trip was great. Hope you enjoyed yours as well.

    Chef Andre announced he was trying out the "family style" serving and wanted feedback. I'm not sure if that was the first repeater dinner to try it, but it sounded like it might be.
