Things are looking a bit iffy for Roz and Paul.  Since a trip to Orlando 11 days ago, I have been in and out of the hospital and emergency room and numerous trips to the MD.  The issue will not resolve itself.  I did the deal on Priceline and I am obligated for the price of the room.
 
Roz and I both had anticipated this trip as it included several places that appeal to the both of us.  Perhaps this mornings trip to the MD will ascertain the trip one way or the other??

Paul, that is awful that you are going through this.  If the two of you decide not to make it down to Mobile, you will be missed terribly, but everyone will understand.  You have to take care of yourself and your health first.  Here is hoping that you feel much better ASAP!

Hang in there my friend. Your health is top priority. We hope you'll be in Mobile, but understand if your system is still giving you difficulty.  That happened to me a couple of yers ago for the Charleston meeting.  if you recall.
 Best wishes and hope to see you soon.

"Mr. Bowen,
I am in receipt of your email. I am not sure why it has taken so long to reach me and I do apologize.
I have your group on our calendar and I have sent an email to the store manager, so they also know of your upcoming reservation.
We look forward to hosting you again.

Bill will probably join us at the start of the evening, Cliff. I invited him in our last phone conversation. He has us on his schedule !!
One of the reasons I like Mobile as much as I do, in addition to the food, is the welcome we enjoy at these great Roadfood institutions.

Looks like we may get a few showers part of the weekend in Mobile. BUT NO SNOW !!
Will you all keep us informed of any changes in your travel plans.
I hope the weather issues are all solved by then for you guys in the Northeast.
We Hope Paul hs recovered enough to join us, If not I will mail him an oyster or two...after a couple of days in the mail, they should really 'help' him !!!  Seriously, Paul, we hope you are feeling better.
Wintzells downtown at 5 PM Friday will be the first official get-together, During that session we can organize the Saturday daytime activities...and Bill sends his greetings and is looking forward to seeing us Saturday evening at the Brick Pit BBQ.
 
We are really excited about this meeting. It has been a difficult year for many roadfooders, and this recreation will provide welcome relief !!  See you all soon.  Stay in touch here.

Yes, only a slight chance of showers.  A little chilly though.  Days in the high 50s to low 60s, and evenings in the 30s.  We are getting most of the rain out of the way early in the week - like today!

Rhode Island got off very easy compared to the surrounding states. 17 inches "officially" at the airport, but most of the state got 18-24 inches....Connecticut and Maine got slammed with as much as 3 feet of of snow. Alot of people without power, luckily I didn't lose mine.
 
I just left my condo for the first time since the storm and went to Jigger's Diner for breakfast (2 Jonnycakes and Pit Ham)  and then next door to Main Street Coffee for my two large french roasts....it's only 1/2 mile down the road and I can truly say they did not do a very good job with plowing the road.....
 
First weekend that Sandra and I didn't spend together since Labor Day (my last big trip) 
 
As of now- flying weather for Wednesday out of TF Green is partly cloudy and 40 degrees
 
Everyone Else...
 
Any thoughts about breakfast on Sunday before most of us depart?  I checked Yelp for suggestions, and have some ideas I can post if interested, or we can wait and check with the locals, perhaps Bill at the Brick Pit can be the point of contact for suggestions?

There's a place downtown on Dauphine Street... "A Spot of Tea"
I've been by there for a good lunch. They do a Sunday
Breakfast/Brunch. It's not a classic " Tea Room" they can seat

Mayor Al...all....looking forward to meeting "you'all" this coming weekend....will be attending with my great friend "edsails"....I would like to suggest that we could consider a place for breakfast any morning, possibly on the way to Pensacola on saturday. It is called The Biscuit King, and definitely has the local flavor of the south, both in regards to good food and local flavor and good service as well as very reasonable prices. It is located just outside the downtown area of Fairhope but still on a main road.....Sterling

Sterling suggested the Biscuit King for sunday and I concur. It's really good, primarily locals and has those long tables so we can eat as a group. It's not far from Mobile and really good.

 
Ed,
I was thinking something in Mobile proper,would be better, (biscuit king is about 30 miles away)    some of us have to leave early and are heading in other directions. 
I could do it if we go early like around 8 or 9 am  or so, but I'm not sure if everyone would be up to that though
Worse comes to worse if everyone else wants to go  later on  that may not work out for us

Hey Ed,
 
Tomato gravy is wonderful!  It's like a roux, best made with bacon drippings, with tomatoes added.  Usually thinned out with milk.  I think they have it at The Coffee Cup so you will probably get to try some.

I agree, you can't get more southern than Country Ham (although I always thought that was more of a mid south thing - Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee)
 
Considering the seafood and Cajun influence, I was actually captivated by the Cajun Omelet at Spot of Tea they open early too at 7am-
 
Either way, I'm sure we can decide on a place even if its not till Saturday evening - I was thinking the best bet was to ask Bill at the Brick Pit for suggestions.

I frequently stop at the Petro in West Knoxville for CFS.  It's inexpensive and well made.  Last time I was there, the server told me they were out, but she checked with the cook.  I saw him pull a steak out, pound it, bread it and fry it up.  No pre-packaged gooey burger patty, but real steak.
 
I was telling somebody last night, that I thought the cajun seafood omelet at Spot of Tea would be my likely choice.
