So Cal GTG

Ok, the rumors are confirmed. Our sweet swisshiker is going to be visiting the Golden State from, well, what State is Texas anyways?

We have two days to pick from - Dec. 16th or 17th.

Either lunch or dinner is fine with me. We could have it near LAX or in Orange County or anywhere in between.

Come on, So Cal. We need to represent. The SF GTGs kick a** and I know we can do just as well!

Who's in?

We're trying to get a Southeastern States GTG off the ground. I'm sure your So Cal GTG won't hold a candle to ours!!! ;-)

It's your turn cat (see the purple GTG thread). Maybe a little healthy competition will get everyone fired up!!!

I am not good at linking threads but I will also post about this in the Lounge. As soon as we get a few more on board, we'll decide more details.

Golly gee willikers, cat. Now you've gone and made my face as red as a pomegranate! Sweet? Shucks, where in tarnation did you hear that?

But yes, I'm coming and I'd sure love to meet y'all!

I'm actually flying out to escort my parents to Texas for Christmas (too hard for them to do it on their own).

Sure would be a hoot to hook up with a few of you friendly folks.

And cat, just as an FYI, Texas is the Lonestar State! <)

Hey there rkkwan It will certainly be MY pleasure to see you again! We miss you here in Texas.

(I need to pick your brain about the Schulenberg churches tour.)

I should be able to attend and either day is fine. Also doesn't really matter where because I am always on the road somewhere in So. Cal.

Dinner would be best and although Orange County would be a closer drive home for me, it doesn't really matter where we meet.

I know I'm no help! But really anything will work for me.

I would love to attend.

I work very close to LAX two days a week and travel throughout the IE the other three, so either location could work for me if I have enough notice to set my schedule.

Southern OC would be a little harder for me, but whatever fits with everyone else is fine, as long as it is dinner. Lunch time is too crazy.

It seems dinner works best. That's a good start!

So, now we've got to decide two things:

Tuesday, December 16th
-or-
Wednesday, December 17th

And location? We've got folks coming from San Diego all the way up to Los Angeles. Somewhere in the middle perhaps?

So far, attendees:

Yes:

Are we all girls so far? Some of you I don't know.

If we stay all girls, let's have it on Tuesday. If we have it on Wed, Mr. Kat will come for sure. Either way is fine with me, and truthfully, Mr. Kat won't mind if it is all girls.

If we are all girls we could have it on Tuesday AND invite Mr Kat. I know MR LTR would enjoy those odds. Too bad he hates to travel.

That's what I meant Mr. Kat will come whether it is all girls or not. Either night is fine with me, but usually Wednesdays I don't have kids so those are always reserved for Mr. Kat. He doesn't mind sharing me, though.

Oh good! Well, I will just tell Mr. Kat he is going, no matter what. Either night is fine for me, then.

Hi cat,
Why don't we just decide on Tuesday then? It seems a toss-up as to either day, and this way you could enjoy your "day off from the kids". And any mother (or father for that matter) knows what a relief that can bring at times, esp. the busy holidays!!

So fodorites, can we settle on Tuesday, the 16th, for dinner?

What is the name of the place at King's Harbor we ate at before? That was nice. Is this a good location for all?

Bluewater Grill is where we ate before. There is another place close by that I just love, and that is Baleen. On a Tuesday night we could probably meet in the bar and just buy a bunch of small plates and split the food. We can each get our own drinks at the bar.
