Oops - sorry, I missed it ggreen - when I was first reading this thread I didn't think I'd be able to make it so didn't pay such close attention to the details, but now it's it's looking good and on my calendar!

My husband is going to drive with me and spend the day at a museum, maybe we'll have dinner with my dad and then we can drive home that evening. We're from central PA so don't get to NYC that ofter - it's great to have an excuse (other than my dad who we just saw "on our way to Italy", as I told him)...and spend the afternoon talking travel to boot!!!

Can't think of a better day! See you all soon!

Oh, I meant that it was good you reposted the link! With 81 replies and counting, the important details get lost... So here it is again, for all newcomers!

It will be my pleasure to talk Italy - I just spent a week in Abruzzo at an amazing cooking school!

And we get back from a cruise the week before the gtg!

You won't be able to shut me up!

Now just one month from today. I am so looking forward to meeting all of you. By Friday I will put together the list of those attending, so I make sure not to miss anyone and make sure we have the right number for reservations.

I would like to add my traveling companion, my husband Mike, to the guest list even though he is not a Fodorite. Hope that is OK!

KRNS, yes please bring Mike along, the more the funner.

rhkkmk, the cost is as per the menu whatever you would like, no additional cost. Please feel free to check the menu and I think you will see why it's one of my favs now. The food is GREAT, well priced, good portions and really good service. They also have a very good wine cellar.

The websiste is bellalunanyc.com for more info.

If anyone needs directions, please let me know.

I am hoping to convince my travel partner (and husband) to come in to town for my first ever GTG, if there is still room!

(mine is staying home as well...) How many are we now?? Just curious. Will you have name tags or something, so we can make connections with names and faces at the GTG? That'd be great.

Oh yes -- name tags please!!! Maybe fodors will supply them (along, I'm hoping, with other swag).
