Cru dinner update for the ACPT

As Ellen Ripstein mentioned, the plans for the annual Cru dinner at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament have changed. If you signed up for the dinner but haven't read Chris Aldrich's post this weekend at the NYT forum, please go to Chris's page and e-mail Chris to confirm your attendance. The upshot is that (1) the Marriott's restaurant is wigged out by the largeness of the crowd registered for the ACPT (700, apparently), so they've decided not to take restaurant reservations for the weekend, and (2) there were hideous waits for food last year anyway), so (3) the substitute plan is a buffet dinner. Which means (a) less waiting for food and (b) you can try a little of each entrée (steak, chicken, pasta) instead of being limited to ordering one, eh?

All the details are at Chris's page, so if you signed up before, check it out and send your confirmation to Chris (e-mail link is in her page).
