Every year we continue to see more and more Roadfood get-togethers around the country.  It is out intention that this forum will encourage even greater participation.  Feel free to post about an upcoming event, discuss car-pooling logistics and share photos of the aftermath.  Anything about a group get-together should be discussed here.

An excellent addition!

Thank you very much.

Buddy

P.S. How do we move existing threads in other forums into this one?

Stephen, this is a convenient destination folder for everyone.  Thank you so much for adding it, because now we can spend less time searching for the meeting info and more time eating with our RF friends!

Stephen, a master stroke!  I will definitely be using this and I think it'll really help bring RFers together and stay connected.  Thanks so much!

If one of the mods (as opposed to rockers) could move this thread over, I would appreciate it.

Great idea!

Question: What will happen to a thread once the "tour date" has passed? I for one would like to see them stay in this forum indefinately. For one thing it will give attendees a chance to post pictures and day-after reports, and later on we'd always know where to look for the old reports if we want to reminisce. 

For example, I have completely lost track of the 2007 NJ Hot Dog Tour thread, I wanted to show a friend some of the pictures just the other day and couldn't find it

A great idea, and one that many roadfooders ( myself included ) will find very useful.

This is a fabulous idea.  I'm a Los Angeles resident who's apparently missed the SoCal get-togethers in the past, and I'd really like to know about the next one (and the one after that, .....).

I'm the "other" Los Angeles resident who had the absolute pleasure of dining with Ellen4641 and the Ayersian Team!

Terrific idea!

It might be sooner than you think.

Elise T and I are in the early discussion stages regarding a meet n greet at Philippe
on Sunday April 19  sometime in the afternoon. I'll be  in  Los Angeles and San Diego the week of April 17 through the 24th.

 I'd be delighted to join you when you're in town.  Phillipe's is one of my favorites and I welcome any excuse to go there.  I'll hold that afternoon for y'all.

Hey Mar52,
The feeling was definitely mutual!
You were so much fun to "meat up" with!!
I wish we had a whole month on the road together !

Hi Ellen!

A month of driving and eating would be a blast!

But I wouldn't fit in the car.

One of these days I'll "meat up" with you in AC.

Marlene and Catosaurus

I hope the both of you can make it. I would look forward to meeting you. I'll officially post a new thread sometime later in the week. I'm hoping more Southern Californians can participate including some old friends (Red Patti and Ed Sails) who haven't posted in a while that I met on my last visit to LA back in 2006.

Thanks, Dale.  (I think it's Dale)

I will be there!  I'm having a tooth pulled and 2 implants the week before but I bet I'll be able to eat a sandwich and maybe a piece of pie!  Not much stops me!

Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Wanderer,
 
I've blocked out the entire day (Sunday, April 19th), so will be open to additional venues, besides Phillipe's, if anyone has ideas. 
 
(My actual name is Pilar)

Hi Pilar,

I'm always ready for a couple taquitos at Celito Lindo!

Looks like it's going to be an eating good time.

See you there!

Marlene

Marlene and Pilar,

It looks like you were reading our minds. Elise T suggested either Dim Sum in Chinatown or Olvera Street after Phillipe's. I replied that I'd love to go with those taquito's- I couldn't think of the name of the place that had them know I know! I'll set up a separate thread for the meet n greet within the next couple of days.

Oh, almost forgot- yes, it's Dale

To Dale, Marlene, Elise and anyone else I'll see soon at the upcoming Los Angeles meet-and-greet on April 19th:

I'm so excited to meet fellow Roadfooders from this shared community!  I love my family and friends, but none of them has this particular genetic quirk.  I'm so tired of those puzzled stares when:

- I continue to read menus long after everyone at the table has already ordered
- I look longingly at food being delivered to other peoples' tables AFTER we've eaten our meal
- I stop and read posted menus outside every restaurant I walk past

Yay food!

catosaurus, you sound like me. I hate it when the server takes your menu away the moment you order; I like to sit there and S-L-O-W-L-Y peruse the menu while waiting for my food to arrive. Best mealtime entertainment there is. And if there's a menu mounted on the outside of a restaurant, I'll be frozen in that spot for at least five minutes.

Exactly!  I hate when they take away the menu!  I thought it was only me.

Pilar, I so know what you mean.

Looking forward to meeting everyone!!!
