I like going out to dinner, it's fun. We just need to plan out the tables
in advance, not wait until the last minute. IE make a reservation at a
pre-scoped table that allows for easy conversation.
We sell tickets and do it right, have a PARTY. Could be a great fund
raiser. Get a caterer, etc. Maybe a band of some sort.

Yes we are, but then the musicians could play remixes of chip
tunes. Here is an example: http://www.slayradio.org . This is an
internet radio station that just plays Commodore 64 remixes.
Also the theremin is a very old electronic instrument created in 1919!
