Tickets are now on sale for the Jane Austen Ball at Gadsby's Tavern Museum (which is physically connected to the restaurant where we held the Francaise Dinner, but is a city-owned museum and not a restaurant). They usually sell out, so I highly recommend buying tickets early if you want to go. As of right now, 35 out of 85 tickets have already sold, and they have only been available since July 1. LJ folks will be getting dinner beforehand, so let me know if you are interested in that.
From the Gadsby's Tavern Museum website:
