Bob, what is the name of the little restaurant in the strip mall behind your hotel? Something like Texas Sushi? I've never had a better steamed pork bun or Thai beef salad than there and would like to go back when we are in BKK this summer.

Don, My husband has work in Shanghai then, possibly Beijing as well, but the dates of his travel aren't firmed up -- he goes back and forth often enough that it isn't a priority to nail the Fall dates down-- and we haven't figured out yet whether I'd be able to use miles and make a trip at the same time. We hope, in any event, that we can both come to at least one Fodor's event.

Bob, we would love to come to the Boston GTG. Loved meeting everyone at the LA GTG.

We just found out that our daughter is expecting at about the same time in October. This, of course, puts our plans on hold for the time being. We will be monitoring all plans closely.

Boston GTG is definitely on our radar.

Magical-we hope that your grandchild will accomodate your schedule and we will see you in Boston. It was a pleasure to meet you last month.

I've got the next BOS GTG on my calendar (as well as the one in HNL). Hope to be there... no reservations as yet. Too early to think about exact dates.

I'm just home from Switzerland about 18 hours ago... jetlag has set in. I waved to Bob and Karen as we were passing each other somewhere over the north Atlantic yesterday, as they were flying to London.


Off to BKK in about 10 days. Brad is already there.

gpanda tells me that the saturday nite is all set for the GTG at similans, so it now seems that our line-up is complete

Bob, it sounds like you're suggesting a form of cannabalism and that GPanda would not be safe...

Of course you know I'm going to be there!

Just checked with the Indain restaurant for Friday night, Punjab. They said they would be glad to have us. I did not mention Bob. He'll be a surprise.

Are you thinking that the curtained/tented area in the middle of the dining room would work well at Punjab or is there some other arrangement? I know that it is hard to speculate without actual numbers of attendees, but I am curious how you are thinking about it.

The Panda will be permitted into the parking lot at Punjab. The rest of us will have the run of the place.

maryA-If there are enough people, the tented area would work fine. However, I'm guessing 15-20 people on friday night and that's too few to take over the whole area. We can always sit in the back towards the right. There's sort of an alcove that might fit our needs.

The worst part about Punjab is that Bob is likely to take charge and do the ordering. It's sort of a Sahib mentality. On a small scale, it's amusing. we'll see on a lerger scale.

Isn't there anyone in the Boston GTG crowd who's a Bar Mitzvah planner for his/her day job? That would help.
