I'd agree with the Hawaiian.
The wisdom of his wife is well known in these parts.

That was not what I was thinking when I wrote that post but now that you mention it, it does fit.

Link to map above, and also...
North Square
103 Waverly Pl, New York, NY 10011. North-West Corner of Washington Square. Entrance from the hotel lobby directly to the private tasting room. Your selected wine (you made excellent choice from the options, I was happy to see the selection ) was already delivered there on Friday for the blind tasting. Also the other selected bubbles are also there.

PS- it is warm outside, drink lots of water

I don't think snow will be an issue this evening.

... it appears a 6:30pm start time:

The evening will have lots of miles, points, and etc discussion. Note to new attendees, once everyone has some wine in them, we all mellow out.

We're even welcoming of those that are inter-married between airlines.

Sit next to us at dinner my + 1 will most likely eat the starter and the dessert and will want to leave space for wine, so there is a good chance a main is available.

If DLRoads cares about my input, I'd suggest not January 13th or the 20th since I'll be in Japan But if he doesn't want me in attendance it will probably now be one of those two dates The 27th has a nice ring to it.
