    Oh -- and will there be water or tea for those of us who may not feel up to alcohol that evening?

    Hi Cynthia,

    I'll shoot you a PM with the payment info.

    As for non-alcoholic beverages, I'm sure they'll be available but I never asked if they were included in the price. Obviously water will be gratis. As for tea, soft drinks, etc. I'll ask and see what they say.

    Would it be realistic to request that attendees do a COVID test within a few hours before arrival? I have autoimmune issues and would be much more comfortable in a group if we all tested negative first.

    To be clear, I'm not asking to have LTH police the group. And I will of course mask myself when not eating. But testing first would bring additional peace of mind, and I'm certain I am not the only medically fragile person in the group.

    I was going to post something about this as the date got closer. Unfortunately, asking everyone to test (a few hours before or even on the day of) isn't realistic. Even if we did, there's no way to verify everyone's results, which could be inaccurate anyway. Nor are we going to have any control over restaurant staff, delivery drivers or carry-out customers, all of whom will (most likely) be present during our event. So, for a number of reasons, asking everyone in our group to test is not only unworkable but would also provide a false sense of security.

    I think the best we can do is ask people who are not feeling 100% well on the day of the event -- and those who know they have covid -- to not attend. This is one of those situations where we just have to trust that the members of our community will do the right thing. Beyond that, we each need to treat this like any trip to any restaurant. If that makes the event inaccessible for anyone who's already paid, refunds will be issued upon request.

    Thanks,

    FWIW, re: Covid, if anyone is in need of a home test, I have a few extras that I can bring if anyone needs one, just let me know.

    Yes, soda (coke, sprite and diet coke) and hot tea are included in the price.

    One additional note:

    My goal is not to pressure anyone but if at all possible, chef would like our final head count by the end of the weekend. And we are nearing our attendee cap. All this is to say that if you're on the fence about this, please sign up asap. At this point, I'm inclined to say that we'll end ticket sales at 10pm CT on Sunday 11/20.

    Hi all,

    We're now into 'overtime' on this event. We still have a few more spots and I'd hate for anyone to be left out. To that end, the team at Khmai understands that we could use a few more days before we give them our final count. So, if you're interested in attending, please let us know asap and we'll get it taken care of. That said, I'd like to let Khmai know by the end of the week and with Thanksgiving coming up on Thursday, that's effectively Wednesday this week.

    Thanks again,

    Anyone driving from the northwest suburbs who might be interested in carpooling -- if for no other reason than trying to find parking near the restaurant?

    In a couple of hours, I'm going to let Chef Mona & Team know our head count, so if you're on the fence, now is the time. If you decide after that point that you want to attend, it's not the end of the world (and probably still possible) but it will make things much easier on them if we give them as accurate a number as possible today.

    Thanks again,

    Alternatively, if someone from up north is taking I94, perhaps we could meet. Just hoping to make parking less problematic.
