    Hi all,

    There was some interest in doing a Arlington dinner but that never panned out so I am attempting to put a new dinner together. Sorry for the short notice, hope we get a good turn out.

    Looking forward to seeing YOU!

    Harper

    I think I can do something like that for a little while. Always need an excuse to go see Julio.

    Confirm me and the lady.

    Maybe an outside OC dinner? It is supposed to be approx 81 during the day and low of 64 for the evening. That would be awesome up there.

    I spoke with a girl at Julio's and she said they dont take reservations so we cant reserve the outside area. But, i can call at 630 and get placed at the top of the seating list so we wont be waiting.

    Cool cool. I dont get why some places dont just hold a table. Its not like if we dont show up they wouldnt fill them...

    Regardless, this should be a blast.

    i agree. especially for a large group. we had that one time at applebees and there ended up being like 18 of us and we had to sit at different tables! After I had spoken to the manager ahead of time and he assured us he would save room. oh well, i guess a customer in the seat is more valuable then one on the phone

    it should be good times!

    Thanks for the info. But reservations are at the discretion of management and since friday between 5 and 9 is their busiest time they won't hold a table.

    They told me they have something called "call ahead seating". She recommended you call on the day of arrival about 2 hours early to put you at the "front" of the seating list..
