That sounds good. If we want to go somewhere else, I can drive - if you don't mind getting in a car with someone you met on the Internet. ;-)

All meals are included, and that day our dinner is elsewhere (some Tomatoes??) before we get back from Santa Fe.

I looked at Sandia - it's a bar with a snack menu, so it can be a light dinner or just a drink. We can play by the ear, no?

Now, what time?

Sweet Tomatoes most likely; it is a salad bar buffet place.

We can always work out details in a bit. There are so many nice places in ABQ, seems a shame to have to limit ourselves to Elegante. Even going across the street to the Hilton would be a little nicer I think. But then there's Flying Star, always a favorite spot.

The Flying Star(lette) is 4 miles away I just can't picture myself waiting for a bus in a strange (to me) city in the January night's darkness.

Hilton looks very close, on the map it seems I'll have to cross a major highway, or is there an overpass?

I can vouch for the safety of Lee Ann or myself. I also would be happy to drive you.

Oh, if I can have a ride - no preference then! You guys know better, you choose. Just let me know

Deb, I sent you an e-mail yesterday with my name and phone, did you get it?

Deb and Lee Ann -- watch out for Faina, at the 11/10 SF GTG at E Tutto Quo, she only had smiles for Fabio, Gianni, Alberto ... and she rides on top of cars too!!

I have Italian relatives - does that count?

Flying Star would be great; there's also a Range Cafe right by Faina's hotel.

Deb, got your mail, thank you!

LeeAnn, yes, Range Cafe (not to be confused with a shooting range ) is very close!

Whatever you gals decide!

When my son was a pre-schooler, he called it "I'llBeQuirky". Have fun Faina!

Well.. Faina is not going

Broke a bone in the foot on December 15, and mid-January is too early to go. Even if I can, still to keep up with the groop will not be enjoyable.

Sorry. It's still on my "to go to" list.

I am sorry that you will not be able to take your trip Faina as I know you were so looking forward to it. I hope you can reschedule for later on. Take good care of yourself. And my wishes for you two and your family for a wonderful 2008 with no health problems and a few wonderful trips!

Oh, Deb, by that time I'll be up and running! Limping around our apartment already, with the walker and using the heel only on the broken leg, but moving!
