ubuntu-us-nj Please RSVP -- Brian Quigley's Going Away Party

Reminder: Bryan's going away party is this Sunday.

I don't really care about the reservation for the restaurant -- it
probably won't be hard to find tables on Sunday at 7PM, so you can show
up unannounced if you're too lazy to make a reservation.

But I'm buying Bryan's group gift certificate tomorrow afternoon at the
bank.  If you want to contribute, you need to contact me before Noon
tomorrow (Friday).  Here are the instructions I've been sending to

American Express Travelers Gift Certificate Instructions

    Please tell me which option you want to do:

    A) Buy your own gift certificate and give it to Bryan yourself. (You can
       buy cards at Wawa or CVS)

    B) Tell me the amount you want to contribute and pay me back at the
       party (cash, check, postal money order).  You can mail your
       contribution to me if you become unable to attend the party.
    C) Send the amount you want to contribute by PayPal to this email
       address, dave at dtrt.org. Every dollar I receive, minus the PayPal
       fees, will go towards the gift certificate.  (I'll round the total up
       to a nice even number, of course.)                                   
    Please tell me which option you choose.

The other party details follow.

See you Sunday,
