Awards will be given (and maybe even a new one will bestowed), potent potables will be quaffed and comestibles will be served (I stole Dean’s Thesaurus!)
The evening will start at 6:00 pm with a cocktail reception, followed at 7pm by dinner, then at approximately 7:07pm (give or take) awards and speecheds and then finally around 11ish dancing (scheduled times are subject to change).
