A big crowd turned out to send Otis off on her trip! A-Wo turned up stag again; Johnbai & O dragged along Muffin & Bran, and we had a surprise visit from Merry (too long gone from our social scene) and JagGirl, so the seats of the initially-in-then-later-out folks were more than filled. Lon & Jules serendipitously fit the dinner in before a dessert date.
There was a bit of hassle with the restaurant: the happy hour only obtains in the bar/restaurant section, so our hopes for an outside dining experience were dashed by the exigencies of economy. Service was a bit spotty and I didn't care for my meal (dry rice and boring mole). But none of that mattered: we had critical mass for a megaton of atomic fun, and a heckuva great evening!
