    Uh, oh, no Girl and the Goat Do?

    Just read post 59. What a bummer!!

    I'm told that the Publican does an amazing seafood tower (not on menu but it can be arranged) that feeds about 12 . Might be fun to have that and some other snacks...

    you know I only sing for one particular person !![​IMG]
    IIRC lunch was going to be ~1pm. No worries if you can't make it, we'll just have to plan a lunch on Sunday when you are still in town!
    [​IMG]grrrrr I know, quite the bummer.

    Will you sing for me? :p

    Unfortunately, I will be leaving at 8:15 on Sunday morning. Just got the 1K desk to switch me to an earlier MCI-ORD, so I'll be meeting you for lunch. Scheduled to land at 12:08pm

    or as people from that other board do, give me a heads up when you are coming into town and we'll make a Do. I live 3 miles north of ORD and am usually up for at least grabbing a drink &/or a bite to eat, whether local or downtown.
    most excellent !!

    Hey great, I'll put you on the list.
     
  20. Put me down as a "maybe" on the lunch. BTW, I nearly spit out my drink when I saw your avatar.....the likeness is remarkable!

    bumparooo.

    FYI, there are a number of folks that are not going to make dinner on Sat night, so I think that the 'mass' needed to pull off roasting of animals probably isn't there. There will still be a dinner but more than likely a venue change, I guarantee it will be a tasty alternative.:)
