  1. Last year people were salvaging discarded aluminum serving trays to take home leftovers. It was highly entertaining!

  2. I will ask the venue if they can provide takeout containers AT THE END OF THE EVENT ONLY, but until I’ve spoken to him I can’t promise anything. 

  3. That’s actually a very good idea. If anything he should sell them for .25 cents each so he can recoup the cost. 

  4. that link was supposed to go to an article in which SB asked for suggestions for this upcoming events.

  5. Gosh. You’re bossy. To answer your question, we’ve deleted the torrential rain as you’ve requested. Or at least we hope we have.

    As for the other suggestions, no, we could not adopt them this year. We actually had grand plans to act on several of them – and a few of our own and feedback from the restaurants – but we determined our best course of action for this year, our second, is to repeat it how we did last year, but hammer out all the unseen routines to make sure it could go as smoothly as possible. With that perfected (and, already, this year is going much more smoothly), we will then build on it for next year.

    Gotta walk before you can run, right?

    Your suggestions didn’t go to waste, though. We will definitely be looking to them as we develop our plans in the future.
