The staff will then section off an area for APEX so that we can have dinner and mingle.

The cost for the class, wine, and dinner is usually $45/person, but since APEX is sponsoring this event, Tony's is granting us a discount. The price to attend is $20 for paid members, and $30 for non-members.

This event is open to everyone. The restaurant is requiring a confirmed headcount, so they can properly prepare the class. Space is limited. An RSVP to Wendy by the afternoon of Monday, February 20 is required to guarantee a seat.
