This has been mentioned briefly previously.

Rick Bayless Oklahoma Pop-Up | Chefs Tornado Fundraisers | The Braiser (http://www.thebraiser.com/rick-bayless-oklahoma-city-tornado-relief-pop-up-video/)

I found the included video interview with Rick to be very interesting. He is talking about his food experiences in OKC and how he views us now in the food culture.

I went to high school with Rick and Skip. They have both done well.

Those of you that got tickets... did you literally *get* tickets? I called and made reservations for the $60 dinner and my card has been charged, but I did not receive anything further. I expected to receive an e-mail or something????? I don't even know what time it starts...

Edit: Ok, just saw something that said 5:30. Seriously?? Why so early?

I had a similar problem. I called and they said they weren't able to send emails for some reason. She told me I'm on the list, though, and to be there by 6:30. Where did you see otherwise? Terrible communication on this.

Someone showed me a thing in the Gazette that said 5:30, and this article has been updated to say 5:30 for the $1000 dinner Rick Bayless to Perform Triple Pop-Up For OK Chefs Relief | News OK (http://newsok.com/rick-bayless-to-perform-triple-pop-up-for-ok-chefs-relief/article/3844105)

I called the Lobby Bar to see if they knew anything and the guy that answered said 5:30 but also said to call back in the morning to get more details because he didn't really know.

Don't know how to link to it because I'm using the Gazette app but the Life Food and Drink - Kitchen Aid - column, page 27, in the June 19 issue does say 5:30 for the $60 dinner...

OK. I'm totally confused. The dinner starts at 7 p.m. but the lady who confirmed that my ticket purchase was accepted told me just last week to get there between 6:30 and 6:45. Guess I'll split the difference and show up at Lobby Bar at 6 p.m.

I didn't expect them to seat 240 at once - I figured there would be 2-3 seatings.
