The Marketmanila Lechon/Inasal Eyeball in Cebu is just 10 days away! Here is the final guest list. Please note that a couple of you who were on the top of a “waitlist” can now squeeze in if it isn’t too late for you to make reservations on planes or ferries or buses to get to the site. Let me reiterate some of the logistical details:

Marketmanila’s Lechon/Inasal Eyeball

Date and Time: November 15, 2008 (Saturday) from 11:30 am to 2 pm.

Location: near the Cebu Capitol, exact adress to be emailed to you separately. Do not be fooled by the Anthony Bourdain post photos. This is a cowboy style meal. Outdoors in an empty-ish lot on our office premises. It is NOT glamorous. But there are decent bathrooms…

Dress: Totally casual attire. Shorts if you like, but use bug spray or insect repellant…

On the menu: A LOT of lechon in several ways. But for those who prefer other dishes, there are several non-pork items including fish, possibly crabs or prawns, and several salads. You should come hungry. If you have any cholesterol, hypertension or other medical conditions, you are attending this lunch completely your own risk and should be heavily medicated if necessary. :) One of the guests is a doctor, but he isn’t a heart/fat specialist. :)

Waitlist: Doy and John Paul, please leave a comment here if you can make it, otherwise, I will reduce the list to 45 guests total. For out of town guests, I hope you have your hotel reservations set. Please let me know if you have any questions about accommodations. Many thanks, keep your fingers crossed for dry weather and see you all on the 15th!

Oh, and one last thing. If you can’t make it for any reason, please leave a comment here. If there is ONE THING that really ticks me off about RSVP’ing for parties, it’s a no-show. I don’t mind that you can’t make it, but please let me know at least 3 days in advance… Thanks!

    Hi MM. Just in case there will be slots for 2 more, hubby and I would love to attend. We did not reserve earlier because of a previously scheduled meeting on the day of the eyeball but the meeting has been cancelled so we are available on the said date. We hope we can be accommodated.

    Hi, MM… I’m really sorry to inform you this late.

With regret, I give up my space on the guest list for another who will be freely and joyfully eating lechon on that day.
