That totally sounds fitting to me. :)

Like Jeff said, we're currently counting on 25+. While I can see
t-shirts as being tight compared to lunch, I don't think it's undoable
and would be willing to handle that. We will, obviously, not be able
to get the shirt sizes of the entire audience. I'm confident, though,
that we could get them from the speakers. If we ordered these, as well
as additional ones for the audience (leftovers could be used for
future events), we might actually be good.

I've been working with the folks from Spreadshirt and Zazzle before
and that worked quite nicely. If we placed an order on Monday or
Tuesday, I think we'd be good. That'd mean that we'd have to go /
no-go it this weekend, though.
