They open at 10:30.  Pastry and coffee- gotta go to Bennison's.  They've won lots of prestigious awards for their baking.  We almost got our wedding cupcakes there.  

I would meet you early for Bennison's.

    Maple bacon bar at Bennison's is a must!

        Suggestion: When a date is established, please add it to the thread's title.  It is hard to follow all the suggested dates within the thread.

          Seems like September 1st is the day.  Right or wrong?

            Do I edit the title or ask a mod to do it?

                Help!  Pie Diva is threatening to lock me in the cabin for 7 days on that cruise.

                    I will let you out to eat, use the spa and go on excursions.

                      Alert the authorities.  There must be some kind of law, somewhere....

                        Maybe in the states, but we are going to be in Mexico.

                              September 1 is out for us as we are on our 30th Anniversary cruise.

                              I did not realize we were so close in "Anniversary"
                              our 30th is Sept 5, and we will also be on a cruise but later in Sept (in the Greek Islands)
                              Congrats, and when is your actual date?

                                Our anniversary is August 28th. Jim couldn't get the time off for a cruise of Italy this year, so he bought me a ring instead and a cruise closer to home. Maybe next year.

                                  That's awesome! A cruise ANYWHERE is so great!
                                  And a ring?
                                  You know what they say about a girl's best friend...
                                  Although I'm pretty sure I'll come home with another pair of earrings for my "collection" LOL

                                    The ring is spectacular! Jim refers to it as our "re-engagement ring".

                                                    But if we could get back to talking about the tour, that would be nice.

                                                            I hate to be the guy who makes an unpopular decision, so I'll just state the facts:
                                                             
                                                            1. No matter when we schedule this meet up, someone will be unable to join us.
                                                            2. This is not an uncommon problem; we've never had a meet up where everyone was able to attend, and we've all somehow managed to stay friends even when someone is left out.
                                                            3. September 1st looks like the day, not only where we have the least number of "unavailables", but the most "availables" (seems like a logical conclusion, but not necessarily).
                                                            4. I would love to pick a day when JRPfeff/Pie Diva and irisarbor are all available, but that day doesn't seem to exist.
                                                             
                                                            You guys do the math and let's pick a day.
                                                             
                                                            As for the stops we choose, I'll chime in with some thoughts:
                                                             
                                                            I think abe's suggestion of Moody's is a dandy pick; great burgers in a lovely beer garden setting.  What could be better for late summer outdoor dining?  I would add to the list, Cemitas Pueblas for amazing Mexican sandwiches, and Troha's for some outstanding fried shrimp.  While I love Cunis Candies' ice cream (Thank you CarolinaBob/SurreyCounty, if you're reading this, for introducing us to Cunis), let me suggest a place The Contingent hasn't visited before, Black Dog Gelato.  Black Dog has been getting raves over at LTHForum, and I can personally attest to the excellence of their product.
                                                             
                                                            Also possible; Ferro's Beef as suggested by stricken_detective, and Edzo's Burgers, per chicagostyledog.
                                                             
                                                            That would give us, in no particular order, six places: Edzo's, Moody's (just my opinion, but this should be our wrap up spot in the evening), Ferro's, Troha's, Cemitas Puebla, and Black Dog.  I know we love La Palapa and Mario's, but that's already a long list.
                                                             
                                                            How about some feedback folks?
