Excellent idea. Is there an average minimum cost per gift?

Although I will probably not be attending, I vote Cool River, but remember-- we have to dress up because after a certain time, you get kicked out if you are not wearing the propper attire. (They have excellent chicken wings too!)

Aww c'mon Energizer, I was unemployed for 7mos and managed to go to all the DFW Dinners including the one at Fogo De Chao.



My mortgage is a weeeeee bit higher than renting an apartment... Unemployment checks won't even cover the mortgage-- and that's without escrow...

Hey! What's up? How are things going?

See you at the dinner...

oh alright. semester is winding down and finals are first week in december (i get a loooong break) so this dinner will be a nice end of semester party for me.

are the gifts considered white elephant gifts (ie not really usefull, just funny stuff) or actual gifts

I think a useful gift would work.

Lulu's, mags, knifes, etc

.a) A gift can only be taken from another person 2X. So the 3rd person gets to keep it.
.b) The person picking can only give up the gift they picked from the hat and draw another 1X



Will the gift remain wrapped the whole time, or will the first person unwrap it?

I'll definitely try to make it wherever, since I am "official" now... I got my AR15 last Thursday. (will post pics ASAP)

I'd like to meet all you guys who have helped me out and those who I will bother later when I decide to BUILD one! hahaha

How will we know where it will be? Results posted here?

sounds great count me in. I have a bunch of new stuff that would make a good gift for some one

Traditionally the gift is unwrapped by the person who first chooses it so that everyone else can decide if they want to choose an unopened one or try and steal the opened one.

Can't make this one. I'll be entertaining out-of-town relatives that weekend.
