Before I leave, I was thinking of hosting an event.
1) To say good bye to folks, although I will be back to visit!
2) I've never hosted an event, might as well try one while still in "friendly" territory.
What kind of things do I need in advance? Since there aren't kosher restaurants in the area (and my family and I keep kosher), I was thinking of doing it at an ice cream place, maybe Friendly's since they have a bigger seating area (most of the ice cream flavors are kosher). Do you usually ask permission of the place before something like this? Is there specific information needed for the cache page? If I remember right, I have to do it at least two weeks in advance? (I'm thinking Sunday July 3rd, or soon thereafter, since it may be very soon afterward that we go, things are starting to pick up like a freight train all the sudden, although I know people may be out of town for the holiday...).
Anything else I should take into consideration when trying to set up something like this?
