Just wanted to jump in and add my Thank You to travelbuff and ggreen for arranging what was a delightful GTG. It is always nice to see old friends, and to then make new ones as well. I love putting fodors names and faces together.

Thank you green and travel buff for arranging the GTG. It was great! I love the restaurant Bella Luna (just on the other side of the reservoir from me!). Great meeting everyone! More in a post. Am recovering from my next party and walking a 5k all over Yankee Stadium today!

Enjoyed the GTG! Thanks to Travelbuff and ggreen for organizing us. The restaurant was a great choice. It was nice meeting up with old and new travel friends. Look forward to the next NYC gathering.

I want to add my thanks to travelbuff and ggreen, too! Thanks also to Annabelle and (the other)Katie from Fodors for attending! Really enjoyed it. I've updated my profile picture to show the button we all recieved.

Button? BUTTON!!! I missed a BUTTON????!!!! Geez Louise!!! This just gets worser and worser!

I'm trying to convince my SO that we need to rebook our weekend just before Christmas, my favourite week in NY, but I don't think he'll go for it. He doesn't like to walk around in the cold weather. I'm counting on global warming.

Is anyone going to post pics (with names, please)?

WOW you guys, thanks so much. And thanks for taking the time out of all your busy schedules to be a part of the EVENT.

Again my thanks to ggreen, for her help when work was crazed and for spending the evening at my place helping make those cute little placecards. Fodors colors even.

goddesstogo, I have an extra button for you, lol, so you have to come to the next GTG to pick it up,,,,,,,sorry.

My next post is for the December 8th GTG so put it on your calenders NOW.

Can't make a December GTG, but if you schedule one for a similar time as this one was in August it might be do-able. Much easier for me to plan for one visit a year, and if it is 'always about the same time' I can block it out on my calendar. Anyway, I'm sure December 8th will be a good time for all!

Just got the grand kids ready for bed and am taking a break, so finally able to add my thanks to travelbuff for initiating this GTG, picking a very nice restaurant to host it and coming to the rescue with our "puppy problem".

Also thank you ggreen for your invaluable assistance and thanks to the young ladies from Fodor's, Annabelle and Katie, for attending and for the goodies, GoAway button and luggage tags,(sorry to add to your pain goddesstogo!)Husband Mike enjoyed himself also (mr130mph). Hope to make the Dec 8th one and am going to check out the dates for the Philly and Boston GTG, maybe try to attend them. Nice meeting everyone and hope to meet again. By the way, the staff at Bella Luna was excellent, especially the hostess who also tried to help us re: the puppy.

Sorry I missed everyone, forgot I had tickets to a play up in Cold Spring and had internet problems. Will definitely put Dec. 8th on the calendar and make the next one though!

FB reminded me of this GTG 7 years ago! Such fun!
But did we ever get the Tshirts we paid $20 for?
