Hi there, there was a registration happening through http://www.formstack.com/forms/?1253773-vDSTOXk839 that was posted on the Pizza Luce Facebook page for the happy hour. I just checked and it looks like the reservations are full. I'm going to check if the lunch and dinner invite is open to more people.
