Still deciding. Thinking positively! No mushrooms, olives or fish. Pretty much open to anything else.
 
If we can't make it hopefully we'll be able to make the next one as long as it is somewhere they are willing to go and wheelchair accessible. I think McDonald's fits that description!

    Braumeister


    The Braumeister & Anita are in. Thanks for the invite.


    Wouldn't that make Anita the Braumistress, Braufrau, or Braumaedchen?

        How will the pineapple mix with sliced bananas?

          She can bring her own pineapple, but even Burt has his limits...

              Count me in for a total of 6
              (tho if I have to I'll un invite the kids...)
              we usually order light sauce, xtra cheese, sausage, fresh peppers (XL)
               
              but if Burt wants to do a send out the pizza pakage option- we will eat whatever he sends out...

              Thankx for head's up

                Could we have seitan just on one half?

                    Time to move this post to the appropriate page so we don't have to keep jumping around to keep track of our count.
                    BuddyRoadhouse


                    If my count is right, we've got 25/26 people confirmed as of right now with a potential for nine more:

                    MilwFoodlovers-2
                    Gyp-1
                    X1-1
                    stricken_detective-1
                    Mrs. Roadhouse (I'll be working the event)-1
                    quijote-2
                    HelloDriver-2
                    abe_froeman and Mr. Maki-3(+ 6 more possible)
                    ChuckL50-1
                    Braumeister-2
                    irisarbor-6
                    Big Ugly Mich-1 (possibly 2)
                    Pie Diva-1
                    Living4funwi-1

                    Possibles:
                    ChiTownDiner-2(?) If we have late start.


                    This current count would mean a noon start.

                    Let's hear from you folks, who wants in?  Spouses, significant others, and offspring are welcome too.

                    Buddy

                    So now we've officially achieved private party status and we've got room for 4-11 more Roadfooders, depending on our possibles.  Of course, with the private party we'd need to start at noon which, I guess that counts out ChiTownDiner (unless he drives really, really fast).  If abe_froeman and Mr. Maki's additional guests decide to make the party that cut down on the number of available spots Contingent members.  So we need to hear from you soon folks.  Anyone else want to join the private party?

                      We have at least one guest who'd like to come.  We invited 6 more potential people, but haven't had a response them yet.
                       
                      Glad we're nearing private party status- Mr. Maki's family just scheduled a family party for that evening, so we'd have to do the 12-3 option.

                                I'm in. And yeah, I can take the Foodlovers and one other person. The time doesn't matter to me.


                                Can I be your other passenger, please? Time doesn't matter to me, either.


                                Yes, definitely.

                                      I'd love to come down to Burt's but am afraid we will be in La Crosse for Octoberfest. Our youngest 1-1/2 year old grandson will be in his first parade. The pre-schoolers on the UW-La Crosse campus parade through the university led by the university marching band. Our other grandson, after 3 years, matriculated to kindergarten.

                                          What's the game plan?
                                          Fixed price assortment? If so, what's the price?
                                          All orders separate? If so, when do we have to place our orders?
                                          I see that yelp seems to favor "well done"  garlic, spinach and sausage as the pizza to order. Do you concur?
                                          I think you need to push that Burt's is cash only for our cashless society diners.

                                            I hope it's not too late to RSVP. I would love to join the group. It's been too long since I've been with the group.  It would be just me, Mr. is working out in Eagle all day. Is there a seat available in someone's car, if not that's fine I can drive and take anyone else that decides to go....just need the address .
                                            Am I too late?

                                              l4w-Never too late to RSVP.  Consider yourself counted!  I'll post the address, telephone number and simple directions as we get closer to the date.
                                               
                                              MFL-I'll go through all the posts stating ingredient preferences and put together the order.  I'll post the selection well in advance of the gathering and you all can comment, edit, make requests for anything not included.
                                               
                                              My personal experience has been that the 14" size (large) will give us the optimal cook.  I've found that the 16" and 18" sizes don't crisp up quite as well as the 14".  There are eight pieces to a large.  I will make sure that there will be enough of each variety so that all interested parties will get at least one piece of each of their stated favorite combinations.  It is unlikely that most people in our group will eat more than three pieces of a large pizza, but I'll make sure there will be more than enough.
                                               
                                              Unless everyone is interested in taking part in the whole meal deal (salad, garlic bread, pizza, soft drinks) it is a waste to go the prix fixe route.  Plus if you want beer or wine, that would be an extra cost beyond the fixed price.  I think the best option for our group is to just pay menu prices, ordering what we want and then splitting the bill as we have done at so many other meet ups.  Those who drink beer/alcohol as opposed to soft drinks have always happily obliged the group by kicking in a few extra bucks.  If anyone objects to that arrangement you can PM me to discuss it.
                                               
                                              When placing the order I will be very conscious of the fact that I am committing other people's money and will make sure that we order in the most cost effective manner.  I will estimate that, unless someone drinks an inordinate amount of beer or wine, the per head cost shouldn't exceed $10-15.  I'll have a more solid number once I put together the pizza order.
                                               
                                              And yes, Burt's is CASH ONLY, so plan accordingly.  There are ATMs within a few blocks of the restaurant for anyone who forgets to bring greenbacks.
                                               
                                              Feel free to keep asking questions.  I'll do my best to answer and resolve any issues.

                                                    Brad I will ditto Buddy's consumption estimates-
                                                    Burt's pizza is more akin to a deeper dish style- it is very bread-intense, and the slices and quite generous.  2 slices is usually my max. 
                                                    If we are adding on some salad or Onion rings (which are really good BTW),
                                                    the 2 slices for sure are my max.
                                                    Now I'm sure the teenage boys, and many men will do 3,
                                                    and equally sure there will be a few folks who may do only one.
                                                    I think guesstimating at 3 per is a good way to go.

                                                      I hope it's not too late to RSVP. I would love to join the group. It's been too long since I've been with the group.  It would be just me, Mr. is working out in Eagle all day. Is there a seat available in someone's car, if not that's fine I can drive and take anyone else that decides to go....just need the address .
                                                      Am I too late?


                                                      I have room in my car with X1 and Pie Diva if you'd like to travel with us. I'm thinking a meet up at the College Ave Park and Ride lot would work nicely. Time to be determined later when we know what time the party will start and I figure the drive time.

                                                        The party starts at noon and wraps at 3:00pm.  Plan accordingly.

                                                            I'm in. And yeah, I can take the Foodlovers and one other person. The time doesn't matter to me.


                                                            Can I be your other passenger, please? Time doesn't matter to me, either.


                                                            Yes, definitely.



                                                            Thank you! What time & where are we meeting next Sunday? I know the MFL's are early birds & that is fine as long as I know ahead of time.
                                                             
                                                            Buddy, are the jalapeno poppers filled with cream cheese or cheddar? Am I correct in assuming the mushrooms are fresh?
                                                             
                                                            iris, how many people will one order of onion rings feed?
                                                             
                                                            I like spinach, garlic & mushrooms, all other toppings are fine, I won't pick them off or anything, but would prefer fresh jalapenos to be on the side so I can place them on each bite individually. 
                                                             
                                                            This is going to be fun!
