I voted for Buca not so much for the food, but for the central location. That would be more inviting for
the folks in SF or East Bay to join in.

I voted for Santa Clara for the delicious food. Although if it ends up being Palo Alto I am still in.

I voted Palo Alto. I'd prefer to avoid anything Santana Row.

Thanks for posting this, Paula. I was trying to get a moderator to help me by converting the other thread to a poll, but so far, no one took the bait. Anyhow, I went for Buca, for location as well.

There are other places in Palo Alto that are good ... one that I forgot all about was MacArthur Park ...

I'm pretty sure Boca caters to large group, party atmosphere, at least the SF venue does, but In reality I'm game for anywhere will be a good time!

Separate Poll for between Buca or MacArthur? Italian or American BBQ?

I vote for the BBQ. I have my rain coat ready.

Is this dinner open to all? I've never met any of you but would like to. Is it for this Sat though? I'm doing a TNT potluck earlier that day and I doubt if wifey would like me gone all day.

I went there yesterday with my company for a group lunch. Outstanding service and the food is out of this world! I'm still not hungry.
