well, lets start there then.

what day?
Dinner time works best for me if we meet during the week.
Weekends , except for a few early mornings, are wide open.

Someone I work with loves trying out new places. She just loves food.

She was just telling me about a new place just East of downtown that apparantly only does cheeseboards, appetizers, wine, etc.

I'll be damned if I can remember the name.

I'll ask her Monday.

uh uh....I just remembered it's the name of a flower. So I looked around and see it's the Blue Dahlia.

if you google it, you'll see reviews, which are like 95% really good, and even the others say it was above average.

It's a place more for nibbling open faced sandwiches and cheese, and coversation.

I couldn't tell how big it was, so I just called them and asked "do you have tables large enough for groups of (let's say) eight"

She said "Oh, certainly"

anyway, I don't know anything else about it, but maybe I'll drive by tomorrow.

@cicerone imposter,
Has anyone kept count on how many we can expect to show up in Austin between Sep 4 and 9?

Shewolf, Can you please set up our first venue, date and time, so we'll know where to meet? I'll be arriving on Friday, Sept 4, for six nites. Sooner the better, because I must contact friends in Houston.

Thank you, shewolf.

Please post here if you're planning to come. I need a "head count."

@cicerone imposter,
Well, since LaFeria is all of 2 blocks from my house, I guess I'll swing by.

I have decided to opt out. Too many personal problems right now - Nothing to be concerned about.

@mac11,
mac11, Thanks for your response. Please make every effort to come - edgar already opted out based on family issues, and I'm really disappointed he won't be able to make it.

@cicerone imposter,
I have arrived in Austin, but I wanted to enjoy the air conditioned room before I venture out. Changed to shorts and t-shirt. It's now 10-m to 4PM - the hottest time of day. whew!
