I got that phone call as well.

As I remember, the double desserts came about because the original plan was to 
eat dinner at Les Amis and then go for dessert at the Black Banana.  We ended 
up eating dessert at both places.  Or was that three desserts?

1976 was philadelphia. we went there so we could stay in one of the 
hotel's that had the outbreak of Legionnaire's [sp?] Disease; we all 
got callbacks from the CDC about how we were feeling [i felt good 
about the SIGGRAPH conference, thanks]. i'll never forget the double 
desserts we ordered [and ate] at a restaurant called the Black Banana

as i see more names go buy i'm increasingly sorry not to be joining you

best regards to all
