[Internal-cg] Call#5 chat transcript - ICG Dinner ..

I checked with the secretariat and it looks like we could do a buffet dinner (with a glass of wine included) for $80/person, where people would be able to mingle around rather than doing a seated dinner. They had previously looked at a bunch of options in the local area but for a group of 30+ people the $83 for seated or $80 for buffet was the best price they could find since most places require catering for a group of our size.

Do others have preferences as regards to seated dinner vs. buffet with mingling?
