At the risk of offending Hot Doug fans the world over, most Saturdays in April and May are bad as both my boys play Spring Sports.  Also, not availalbe until April 19th due to travel plans before.

In Summary - Sunday, April 19 and 26 is good as is May 3, 10, 17 and 31.

Did anyone mention Ed's Postickers?

I did, thought it sounded intriguing, kinda like Tom's Chop Suey Palace or something.

sd, I wouldn't spend too much time responding to CTD's question about Ed's Potsticker House.  This is just his clever way of expressing his strong desire (not that I disagree with him) to take the group to Ed's.

More than likely, once he reads this post, he will come back once again and ask, "Say did someone mention Ed's?"

Watch, you'll see.

Buddy, I got a bit confused on the dates ( typical me ). I will be around during the last weekend in April after all. I'm not leaving for NC until April 29th, and will be gone 7 or 8 days. Either April 25th or 26th would work out fine for me, as would May 9th or 10th.

Ann, if you like Lime, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE Green River.

2 words: Lime Oil.

Like nothing you've ever had before.

I'm putting in my request for some time in May.  Just to avoid my busiest season and to make sure to avoid nasty weather as much as possible.  But I am flexible as to restaurant choice since I'll eat most anything and have no idea where any of these restaurants are located!

Hoping for cheap airfare to Chi town or Milwaukee to boot!  So let's set a date so I can make my leave request and start working OT to afford the trip.  I'm Roadfood trip starved although there are lots of great restaurants here in Atlanta.  You guys and gals don't seem to want to all come down to see me!  (Guess it's cheaper for 1 to go North than a bunch to come South)   Besides I just have a 1 bedroom apartment...

I updated my schedule on the previous page- but it's filling up- we should pick a date....

How about May 3rd (the Sunday before Mother's Day) or May 17 (the Sunday after Mother's Day)?

I'm still open to April dates as well, but the way things are going right now, winter might still be hanging around at that point...

May 3rd rules me out, I'm afraid. I'll still be down in North Carolina.

May 17th is fine with me.  I'd like to hear from the MilwFoodlovers before we absolutely commit.  Unfortunately, they are in Jamaica for a few more days and won't see any of this.  Can we hold out picking a firm date until early next week?

Also, keep in mind that the day of the week we pick will effect where we go.  For instance, for those desiring Hot Doug's duck fat fries, we will need to go on a Saturday as Doug's is closed on Sundays.  On the other hand if we want to go to Burt's, it is highly unlikely that they will be able to accommodate a group of our potential size on a Saturday.  Of course, with their recent exposure on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, we might not even get in there on a Sunday.

My point is, there will be trade-offs in our selections no matter which day we pick, so we need to agree on our priorities.

Any day works for me, I was just eager to get a date set.

Is there any way we can do a survey monkey or count up the votes for the different places so we can narrow down where we are going?

I think waiting till next week is fine, and I think the idea of a survey monkey, whatever that is, if someone knows how to make it work, is fine too, I just think that if we wait too long all our calendars will be far-mished

I prefer May 3rd because I'd love to spend another birthday weekend in Chi-town and have already requested that weekend off, but I can try to change my vacation time once a firm date is determined.

We discussed dates this past weekend at our mini meet with buffetbuster and came to the conclusion that almost any date in May would exclude more than a few of our members.  Also, don't forget JRPfeff's Smoke Out party will be held late in May, eliminating them from at least two weekends (one for prep and one for the actual party).

We're now looking at early June.  Any major conflicts for anyone?

The entire weekend of June 13th is
COMPLETELY OOOOUT!
My twin boys will be Bar Mitzvah!
Total Family Chaos!
Non-stop eating!

I think all the other June weekends are actually OK.
but who knows?

I think the first two and the last weekend in June are out for us. Boudreaux, I think you just need to pick a week that works for you and let the chips (or duck fat fries) fly.

Buddy,

When does the Roadhouse Bar-B-Que Sauce Summer 2009 Tour begin?  Doesn't that rule out just about all of June? 

Let's go for May 2 or 3. 

Jim

Buddy, any weekend in June works for me, but, as I said before, I'll be down Carolina-way the weekend of May 3rd, and won't be back until the 6th.

Jim, I'm not sure how we're going to handle the tour this year.  However we decide to proceed, I will simply make sure to keep that day free.

Actually with all the scheduling conflicts for May, I'm thinking we might shoot for an April date.  Any thoughts?

We are never going to please all of the people all of the time. I think we should just pick a date & stick to it.

When are Easter & Passover this year? April? After that, there should be 2 weekends left, let's pick the one closer to May?

Passover starts April 7th
Easter is April 12
