UPDATED 9/5/12 10:30 AM:

Based on the respondents and confirmed attendees I have found a reservation at a place highly recommended by several people:

Reservation for 12: 7:30 PM at Harry & Izzys:
http://www.harryandizzys.com/indianapolis-downtown/menus/dinner/index.html

IMPORTANT: Everywhere in town is covered up. Reservations are hard to get. Izzys will hold the reservation for 15 minutes then they release it. They require the party or the majority be present at seating, or the seats are subject to release. So, be early or on time. Reservations are under name "Scott Horton"

Reservations for: 12, 10 confirmed, 2 tenative
Confirmed:

Greg (Taker)
Scott and Cathy (GetGray)
Mike G (AVS5)
Mike (mmiles)
Bryan and Barb (bgarcia)
Mark Seaton
Ken Whitcomb (d6500ken)

Tenative:
Jim (jbm007)
Dan (DanFrances)

I'll say that myself and jbm007 are tentative- we may need to attend dinner with vendors/ business associates; but since we made it last year I'll say we're game for this year.

For those confirmed, let me know if there is any place you have stong preferences about not wanting to go? Or the opposite. I'll work on getting reservations by tomorrow evening. Barring any input to the contrary, I will shoot for something fairly close to the downtown hotels and convention center.

Looks like I won't be there by 7:30pm due to some other obligations before I headed out. I'll likely not be around until closer to 8:30pm.

Thanks all who made the dinner. It was a nice smaller group (12) this year and we could all visit together. Thanks to Dan for fielding all our audio questions, we hardly gave him a chance to eat. Kudos to Mark H for "encouraging" the waitress into going after a St. Elmo's bread basket (2 doors away), my money was on "it would come" as soon as he started prodding smile.gif . Great to meet a few new (to me) folks and to visit with all my old friends. Hope to see everyone next year!

Cheers,
Scott
