By the way, for anyone who hasn't yet done the math, $55 for 5 courses tax/tip inclusive is LESS THAN $9/COURSE FOR FOOD AND WINE before tax/tip.

How many restaurants of this caliber in the DC area serve you a course with a glass of wine for less than $9?

Why are only 12 people signed up for this?

I have been put on to work Wednesday night, so by necessity, I have to change to a "maybe." I am trying very hard to change my schedule, however.

EDIT: I got my shift covered. Never mind, I'm back in.
