Hey if you are planning a dinner event for over 20 employees, don't you pick a place with a varied menu.  OK maybe I only think that way becuase of the CD.
I am going on a business trip to chicago next week.  Our first nights dinner is a cooking class at a Louisiana style food place.  I checked out their menu & no plainer foods, no unseasoned items....I will be eating Kudos and Rice krispie squares in my hotel room that night.
Good thing I know how to push food around on a plate to look like I ate.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

Yeah, the rest of the world goes on withoout us. For us it's food issues, but for people with other illnesses and disabilities it's something wheelchair access. I guess you just have to take it in stride. Hope you get some time for fun in hometown and a great city!

If it's a cooking class, would you have the option of not adding the spices?  Maybe if you call the place and talk to someone ahead of time, they'll be able to tailor your portion.  There may be others in the group who would rather go easy on the spice, too.  People with indigestion or acid reflux would probably appreciate a milder option.
