No joke, my friend is a triage nurse and she was trying to call this name 'laa'....'La'....'Ella' etc. Trying to pronounce it. Finally she says Ms Whatever-her last-name-was and this woman comes up and says "umm. it's pronounced 'Eldasha'" all snobby and offended.

The nurse looks down at the page puzzled. It is spelled "L-a."

True story. Edit: true-ish story :P

Alright everyone! I'm all settled in with the baby (as much as one can be lol)

I've got the go-ahead from my better half for Saturday March 2nd. How many people are planning on coming? If there's a quite a group coming, I might book a reservation somewhere. that'll make it easier for people to find the table too, since we probably won't know what each other looks like. the reservation will be under Turge.

Where? I guess I'll just throw something out there. How about Slainte? It's got decent food and decent tap selection while having enough space for us to probably get a good size table with a reservation.

Looking forward to it, guys!

Edit: Just updated the OP to reflect Date/Time/Location. If we need to change it to accomodate everyone if possible, that's cool. Just gonna confirm with Turge.
