    We're looking to just meetup and have a good meal.

    I received positive feedback from Theo & Stacy's. They just told me that they would like advance reservation for a group "our size" (I told them 10-15...). They have Greek and American food. Quite tasty and reasonably priced.

    UPDATE
    The restaurant wants a definite head count on the morning of, so I need a yes or no from everyone on the Tentative list by Friday evening.

    Also, since this is a sit-down restaurant, it would be immensely easier if those coming brought cash to pay for their meal. This isn't a requirement, but it is strongly encouraged. I don't know if they will split a bill 10-15 different ways, so to make things easier, Please bring cash.
    So let me know how many are coming (you, you+2, etc), and we'll start to nail this one down.

    Where:Theo & Stacy's Restaurant - 4311 S. Westnedge Ave. Kalamazoo, Michigan 49008
    Map: Google Maps
    When:[color=darkred] Saturday, Jan. 24, 2pm


    Total confirmed coming: 23
    Zigziggityzoo+4
    quarter horseman
    Dr. Todd
    Mastiff69+1
    defcon1+1
    jmlefler
    Kovernm+1
    Bronson
    Kimberguy+1
    Birds
    XD-40+1
    dougwg
    bobn911
    xd9sc

    Total tentative coming: 6
    Dr. Todd's guest
    defcon1's son+1
    Kimberguy's 2 guests.

    Will update as needed.

    I'm always on call, so I'm always going to be a tenative. That said, I've no problem with any of those dates.

    quarter horseman already posted agreement with the 24th. Since that is right around the corner, we should get this thing roiling quickly. Hopefully there will be some timely responses.

    Zig, I did a search for Theo & Stacy's to get the full address and map and there appears to be 3 different locations for that restaurant in Kalamazoo. Which one of the 3 will you be meeting at?

    Oops!!! Nevermined.

    FYI, I posted the Kalamazoo "meet & eat" as a MOC event on the new FaceBook group site. Let me know if this attracts anyone to the meeting - I expect it will not.

    Edit: I also posted it on the SAFR forum.

    Most times I really love working on the weekends ...then there are the times like this :?

    I'll be there in spirit but I'm running short on personal time after the holidays and my bouts with the plague.

    I hope more people reply to this. Oddly enough, of all the people who said they'd be interested in a Kalamazoo meet, none of them seem to actually be from Kalamazoo, and one listed his location as "West Michigan".

    Have you PM'd everyone who initially said they would be interested in a K'zoo meet?

    Might try that and see what they think.

    updated... About as many tentatives as not. And the only reason there are lots coming is because I'm bringing 4!

    I hope to see most of you come.

    I will add that the owners have no problems with us carrying. So Carry On! :celebrate

    Sounds good to me. I'm in town and pretty close to Theo & Stacy's. I'll watch for updates or let me know if you need some 'in town' help.

    Carry on

    I'm going to try to finagle something at work that will let me attend the meet & eat in Kazoo on the 24th. I can't promise anything but I'll try.

    It has already been posted there under "Open Carry Lunch in Kalamazoo." I would have PMed you, jmlefler, but I cannot access that action. Do you have it disabled?

    UPDATE

    I just heard from Theo & Stacy's. In order to accommodate a group of our size, the time will have to be changed from 1pm to 2pm. Is this ok with everyone?
