They start serving breakfast at 8-just an fyi. I can be there at 10 but will anyone else be there?
We were going to be there at 10:30 but I'm open to 10. Quijote, do you have a head count? We've always eaten at the bar. I honestly don't know how big the place is, it seems like it might be a pretty good size though. Has Maureen, Jim, Quijote, the head cat wrangler, or anyone given them a heads up that there will be some extra folks there and some of them will have small hand held cameras while others might be lugging Betacams? If anyone can give me a firm commitment that they will arrive at a specific time with guaranteed number for their party, I'll pass that on to the McBobs staff. OK, MFL and Mrs MFL (in 2 cars) will be at McBobs at 10:15 and we both will be having that corned beef hash. After breakfast, Mrs MFL will be off and I will accompany The Contingent to Champion Chicken where I will possibly have some fried chicken and/or get an order of chicken to go and I'll bid everyone a fond farewell. The Roadhouses should be aware that Champion Chicken also is known for frozen custard; jus sayin'.
Has anyone else noticed we haven't heard from Maureen lately or did I just miss that? Anyway, I called up Champion Chicken and alas, while they have cocktails, beer, malts, shakes, "gourmet" soft drinks and several types of lemonades, they do not have a TV for those who want to watch Green Bay toy with da Bears. Anyone thinking of ordering chicken for munching on later might be interested in using a coupon. http://www.championchicken.net/Menu%20pdfs/SUN%20WEB.pdf
MFL, Maureen did respond (#127 above) saying that she'd call McBob's and Champion to clear the cameras, etc.
I don't really have a head count, but for McBob's/Champion it like our group includes:
Mr and Mrs JRPfeff
Mr (and Mrs) Brad_Olson
Mr and Mrs CSD and Mascot Sam
Mr and Mrs MFL
Mr and Mrs Buddy RH
It sounds like we may get a couple more folks besides, and then people will come and go later in the day. So, I'm guessing 14-18 Roadfooders to start, then throw in Maureen and the cameraperson. If I missed anyone above or included too many people, let me know.
I'm hoping to get to McBob's before 10:30 so will gladly do some early dining with other early birds.
As we get close to 11:00 and if CSD and Buddy haven't arrived, perhaps we should order a plate of corned beef hash for them. We can keep it "safe" for them. I promise.
Later on, as the MFLs depart and others (X1 and stricken and ??) fall by the wayside, other folks may be joining us:
Big Ugly Mich (and Mrs Mich and Mascot Jesse?)
I know I'm forgetting someone (or someones) in this list..... Who did I leave out?
