Kevin created a very popular thread over a month ago suggesting a Chowhound potluck. While that proved too complicated, and a restaurant meal perhaps too costly and restrictive, the idea has morphed into a meet-up at a Santa Monica bar restaurant, O'Brien's -- the location on Wilshire about 23rd. It will be informal and individual -- stay as long as you like, eat and/or drink as much or little as you like, take care of your own check, and please be sure to tip well.
Another hound has opened an evite site, so please rsvp if you intend to attend so we have some idea of numbers:
Yet another hound has volunteered to bring name tags and sharpies so we can attach faces to screen names/monikers.
I'm looking forward to the event, and plan to be there. I hope some of the others whom I've learned from and even disagreed with will come. And there are a few -- Servorg, Westsidegal, among others -- who I'd really like to meet.
Please hit the evite link when you are sure you'll attend.
