So besides a picnic have we ever had this amount of us in one place before?

The crab dinner at Spice X-ing was similarly sized. The wagyu tasting definitely had this many, but had two seatings. Those are the two that pop immediately to mind ... Someone who's been around longer will have to pipe up here.

A couple of excellent (two seatings) dinners at Ray's the Steaks, in the original location.

Wagyu tasting at Vidalia (also an event with two seatings).

Tasting Room takeover at Restaurant Eve...is it possible that was five years ago!?

Yep, that's the wagyu tasting I meant. Wasn't there also a soft-open series at Ray's the Classics when they were opening that might count?

Yes, there was - forgot about that! And a spicy dinner at Passage to India, though it was maybe not quite 50 people.

(looks like this might need a new thread - or an entry in the index :( )

leleboo says: punted them here for now .. but this thread is pretty out of date itself! Looks like I might have another task ...
