(All are invited:  You needn't be a Linux consultant.)

The Linux Consultants' Lunch will be THURSDAY August 19, 11 AM
- 1 PM, at TURMERIK Asian Cuisines (old name: Turmerik Restaurant), 141
S. Murphy Ave. between Washington Ave.  and W. Evelyn Ave., Sunnyvale.
That's about one long block east-south-east of the S.  Mathilda Ave.
overcrossing over the CalTrain tracks, and about two long blocks
southeast of Central Expressway.

We'll be having Turmerik's fixed-price lunch buffet, which is probably
still $11.95 per person, all you can eat.  Drinks, tip, tax are extra.

The restaurant's change of name reflects them branching out from
northern Indian classics, adding Chinese and Asian-fusion dishes as well
(reflecting the expertise of newcomer co-chef Danny Ng).

_Note_:  We'll be at a table in the BACK ROOM of the upstairs dining
area.  This event is held the 3rd Thursday of every month.
