Well, Matt, it looks like everyone who voted for had To happen decided not to go... (except for you, of course.)
< sigh >
This month I am a little broke, due to the just returning to a contract thing... so I'm out unfortunately.

Well it was 4:2... and TBH we seem to have a bit of thjat lately... people voting to go somewhere and then not going there... :( I wonder how we can fix that in the future?

Well we should have a democratic nomination process, as opposed to simply a "Here's where we're going" statement... hang on... I have a thought. We go on hiatus (officially) from November... so... I think what I MAY well do is institute a "Nominate restaurants for the Year" and then we can just have the voting every month :) I think I'll post about that a little later on today (if I get a chance).

We definately need to do something about the situation. For tonight though, I think I'll have to call myself up and apologise that I won't be able to make it out to dinner, and invite myself over for DVDs instead.

I guess it's hard when people who do not intend to come vote, but the quandary is, if somewhere I am not keen on dining wins, I wont go.

To me, this particular one was an inconvenient location, and a cuisine that usually disappoints, so I personally wasn't interested.

Maybe anyone can nominate a restaurant, but you should only vote on which one if you intend to go if that restaurant wins? A vote is then like saying 'I'll come this month if we go here'.

I agree with that. Nominate a restaurant, then ONLY vote if you are attending. However, that's why I note down another vote for who is attending - because of this exact issue. If it's not 'X' restaurant I'm not going (and that's fair enough). I think voting for a restaurant should mean that you WILL go, thence the minimum attendees will be those who voted for it - the reast can be added as requested.
