St. louis - Fodors Get-Together Planned

One of our special Fodors' freinds ,Marilyn Freund ,will be in town visiting next month.

While she is here we would love to meet other fodorites from the St. Louis area.
We have scheduled a Get together for Monday October 11 at 6:30 or 7pm at BarCelona's(fun Tapas restaurant) in Clayton.
It is located on Central Avenue off Maryland Ave.
Please email me directly if you would like to join us for cocktails and/or dinner and great travel conversation!!!

We thought this would be great fun!

Thanks,
Anne

I wish I could come up from Tulsa. I'll be there in spirit.

Hey, I'm a native (away only a couple of years now to Memphis). I'm up all the time as my family is still there but darn it, I can't make this one. We head for Budapest and points beyond shortly thereafter, so work just has to get done before we go. I'm very sorry to miss it though and miss meeting everyone! Have fun for us.

Unfortunately it's a bit too much of a commute from Toronto, but I'll be thinking of you! Of course that's also Canadian Thanksgiving, so I'll be thinking about you and pumpkin pie at the same time.

Meesthare,
We will have a toast for your thanksgiving!! I forgot it is in October. Dumb question....do you have similar celebration feast as we do here?
I am highjacking my own thread!!

OK, There has to be some other St. Louisans who post here who would like to have a fun and festive drink,....and give a toast to our norhtern neighbors!!
Anne

Sorry to contribute to the hijacking, but - to answer your question - yes, we do exactly the same sorts of stuff in October that you folks do in November. In fact, my family often celebrates on the American date instead, because my daughter in New York is able to get some time off to come and celebrate with us. We do turkey and pumpkin pie and all the rest - a very big deal, but lots of fun.

I'm so jealous of your reunion. I'm a Washington Univ alum and I"m dying to get back there! So many great restaurants to try...of course when I was there on a student's budget all I could afford was Ted Drewes and Naugles! You'll have to post a report afterwards! Have fun!

Jocelyn, thank you, you are so sweet to help out!

Meesthare, c'mon! I'm meeting you halfway, for goodness sake!

Do you think I have anything to say? No! I am just TOPPING.

Well, I'll tell you what, Marilyn, why don't you come the rest of the way and visit us in Toronto? I mean, once you're travelling anyway ...
I'm going to be in NYC for a few days starting Oct. 21, visiting my youngest grandbaby. You could always stop by there on your way home.

Ah, I would love to Meesthare, but I'm going to be back on the East Coast in early November. We'll meet someday!

You guys better look out for Ms. Marilyn.
We found her too meek, mild, timid and demur to fit into our rowdy group out her in No Cal.

She has to learn to come out of her shell and have some fun.







I'm going to have hell to pay for this one! ><

I thought I posted to top this but it seems like it didn't "take." Oh well...I'll try this again.

Ignore Kal. He's just jealous that fodorites will be gathering somewhere to eat, drink, and make merry without him. Don't worry, Kal, you'll get your chance soon!

Meanwhile, last chance, St. Louisians!

Ignore moi?

That's like trying to ignore the 700# gorilla sitting in the room!

We better get some pics of the "St Looey Thang".
If people can get a glimpse of my ugly mug at our last GTG, we can certainly see some of those sweet, midwestern faces!
