OK, We bailed my wife out of the Hospital this afternoon (after a 3 day stay) and now can get serious about planning and preparation for Next week. Friday evening
, the 17th, at 6:00PM (Eastern Time) those who wish to join us should meet in the Thoroughbred Lounge
in the Brown Hotel in Louisville to meet and greet AND enjoy the sandwich that has been identified with Louisville for ages. We hope we have a good representation from the Roadfood Folks. I have received RSVP's from 12 people and we will reserve a table for 12 early next week for the Friday event. If you think you would like to attend the Supper-meeting please let me know here or by email and I will be happy to add you to the list. Weather forecast as of now for next friday is 35-40 degrees and 30% chance of RAIN.
Here is the listing from the Hotel's website for our meeting place. Thoroughbred
Hours of Operation: 3:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m. Monday-Sunday
Menu: Light fare plus entrée from the English Grill menu
Ambiance: Fine dining
Theatre Menu available
Hot Brown available
Much has been said of the Moonlite BBQ so I will be brief. We will meet at the Moonlite Saturday
at 3:00PM (Central Time). Since there are 30 or more of us, getting to the tables, signing the visitor's sheet and getting you nametags etc will take a little while. Since it is a Buffet, members will enjoy the freedom to choose and move about a bit more than if we were ordering off the menu and having food brought to us. When most folks are finished with their meal we will distribute the 'Door Prizes' using a ticket drawing sort of thing. There will be a table set up for your contribution to the door-prizes. Based on our experiences at the crabfest this is a great time for meeting folks and getting to know your fellow members.When the meeting finally breaks up some folks may be continuing their socialization in smaller groups at their local hotels.
I know some folks who will be heading directly to Owensboro are planning a Saturday Breakfast and those folks plus some others will be looking at a Sunday morning breakfast also. Check the thread that Z66Butch has on the Misc Off-topic forum for info about those two meetings. If you have ANY questions please ask on this forum or by email.
