Al, perhaps I read it wrong but the hours you posted indicated that they close at 3:00PM. I hope that is wrong as we were planning on being there at 6:00PM.

Maybe it was a typo and you mean't 3:00AM?

OOPS, I read on down and it appears that they reopen at 5:00PM. That works.

As one retiree to another, I should have highlighted that time also !! I didn't see it either, the first time I checked out the Website. I thought we would have to eat in the "Grill" (formal) or the Bar...But the Cafe should do us well. I think we are close to 12 in number there, but will wait a bit to allow everyone to think about the timing for their trips.

For those going down to the Owensboro area after dinner Friday evening it is less than 2 hours from Louisville. For those staying in the Louisville area, we will try to have some suggestions for Saturday morning breakfast and "sightseeing" in Louisville ready to pass out Friday evening.

Remember there is a ONE hour time difference between Louisville and Owensboro/Evansville (and Nashville).

Thanks for the update. All the info I could find must have been about the Grill.

1-Iron,
Think more in terms of a small cassarole than a sandwich. I hope the weather holds as it has so far this winter. We have been 'enjoying' a very mild winter! One local weatherman predicts some colder weather early next month, but then lightening up again in time for the BBQ Session. We will hope he is 'in the know'.

Not quite three weeks away, but if your weatherman is like ours, I'll wait until I can stick my hand outside the window to check the conditions.

Bad news guys...

This thing (schedule) at work has me listed to work the 18th... If I cannot make it, I am fairly sure that my wife will.

More to follow,

Actually Oneiron, Louisville ain't that far from Atlanta. Go to Chattanooga, Nashville and the next stop is downtown Louisville. It will not begin until 6:00PM. Check out a little early on Friday and head up the road.

I will be there and it is about 246 miles from Knoxville. That is a four hour drive. I probably will leave a little earlier as I will have to make a pit stop along the way

Looking forward to sharing my first experience with a Kentucky Hot brown with you and Mrs. Oneiron. Make sure she brings her camera.

The next day will also be fun. I am staying in Evansville and will drive there after my experience at the Brown Hotel.

I am pretty sure that it is. I have attached their website. I have visited the museum before and it is very good. It is across the street from the plant. Look at the top of their web site and it indicates that they are only closed on holidays.

I have owned two Vettes. A new 1975 and a used 1977. I wish I still had the 1975 but they are antiques as compared to the new ones.

I got word yesterday that Seafarer and Mrs. Seafarer confirmed they will be in attendance. Also 6Star from Peoria has confirmed. Sadly the "Ale's" from N J won't be able to make it. Avalanche Driver is working on a schedule conflict, but his family will make it even if they have to leave him at work. Poverty Pete and Sundancer and The Bushie delegation will be there! As will the Mystery Woman from Ohio! The 2 Bobs brothers and the Pappy's are on the list also! Rick F , Iwannago, the Mayor and his child bride, and several more who I will have to check off my list when I find it will make a great group to share an afternoon with....
Overall Headcount is between 30 and 38 for the Moonlite BBQ! The Friday HOT BROWN Session looks like a dozen or so will check out the Brown Hotel that night.

We will do a roll call about a week before the gathering. Things are shaping up nicely! While the weather may turn COLDER than the record warm January we have just enjoyed, the forecasts for the month don't show major storms (yet!) Cross your Fingers for a mild weekend!

My door prize is now safely resting in my refrigerator. The only hint I'm willing to divulge is that I purchased it from the outlet at Broadbent's in Cadiz, Ky. You can reasonably assume that it has to do with pork.

Another Small Tweak in the logistics... I visited the Cafe in theBrown Hotel this morning for Breakfast. They have a buffet full of neat goodies, and I wanted to check the place out, so while Janet was visiting a Doctor next door, I stopped in. I am glad that I did. As of Feb. 1 this year, the Cafe is no longer open in the evenings. The Manager took care of checking for certain that table space and casual dress will be available for us in the Thoroughbred Lounge 2 weeks from tonight! I will call in a specific number next friday...So anyone still in the planning mode for that evenings activity as part of the Glee Club activity that weekend....Get your plans set !!

Al, that is a breakfast. I feel sure that you did not leave hungry.
Looks great to me. I am glad you checked it out.

I got a email from Iwannago. This person is in LA for a 8 day meeting but feels sure that she will be able to fly into Louisville from a meeting Chicago. I will pick her up.

Y'all have fun! My apologies for not being around much lately. I've had a job change and it's taking a lot of extra time while I get up to speed. I will not be making it to Owensboro, so y'all will have to eat extra for me. Enjoy!

BULLETIN- for Participants-

Door Prizes-
Tonight Janet and I spent a little time organizing and wrapping our door prize contibutions. She suggested that I notify all of you to please label your prizes either with a description or at least with a "CONTAINS ALCOHOL" note if the contents would be considered an 'adult beverage'. For example one of the prizes we are bringing is a bag containing the ingredients of a traditional Kentucky Mint Julep. Since this is definitely an "adult beverage" it would be inappropriate for a minor to 'draw' this prize. Help us by labeling your prize(s) if necessary. We will have numbered tickets for everyone at the dinner. Then we will draw those numbers and match the number to your ticket for the prize from the heap of them that will be available. If all works out like it did at the Crabfest there was more than one prize for just about everyone attending. Feel free to bring more than one prize to 'sweeten' the pile a bit if you wish.

Mine won't be alcoholic, but my sister who is also coming to Owensboro, happens to live at Cascade Hollow, home of George Dickel. I wouldn't be at all surprised if...
