I will be there and would love to dine. The 30th is perfect for me.

Would anyone object to mpving the venue to Casa Valencia? It's a Mexican restaurant with an emphasis on seafood. We've had mixed results on El Charro food the last few years.

It is the company that makes this a great dinner, not the location.

But where is this one? Is there a link?

Their site is https://casavalencia.company.site/
And they are located at 1825 W Valencia Rd
They specialize in seafood but also have really good turf-based options too. We make sure to go there at least once every Tucson.
I got a reservation for 8 at 7 on the 30th.

Sorry for taking so long to make this post, I got a new phone before tucson and wasn't logged in to my account.

Thanks to everyone who came to the dinner! There were only 8 of us this year but I think it went really well--I certainly had a great time and great conversations. Funnily enough this year we were almost all faceters (my brother being the one on exception, for now). I hope we'll have more people again next year, but with the number of people who couldn't come to Tucson this year it was inevitable it would be a bit smaller this time.

Thanks for arranging it! It was good to meet people in person after all these years conversing through posts :D
