Well, friends, we did it once, and it fell by the wayside....so let's try it again.
Some time ago, I started organizing a group of "Hotbyters" to do "Meet & Eats" (it was on the 2nd Tuesday of the month)...and I say we need to get this going again.
I have already talked with Fernando & Christina Marteniz about doing their new digs (Mussel & Burger Bar) once they are comfortable with us coming en mass. However, in talking with some of my fellow foodies, there are LOTS of places we've yet to try as a group.
OK, for those who are unfamiliar with our "Offlines"....here are the high points:
1) Once a month, we gather at an agree establishment (announced and planned of course) for an evening of friendship, fun and most of all, FOOD!
2) We announce that it's time again to plan, and we all toss ideas around, then I tally votes and the choice is made by popular ideas.
3) In the past, the duties of "Host" was rotated, and that entails making the necessary arrangements with the establishment.
4) We go and have fun, and write up our own take on the evening.
Now, since it's been some time since with done this, let's start off with:
Please let us know what evenings work best for you (I'm pretty open, but I do have a Hotbyter chef in residence, so if we could do a dark evening it would make him happy (Sunday or Monday), but not a must)
LIST OF POSSIBILITIES
Mussel & Burger Bar (as mentioned above)
Jade Palace (Per Melissa Richardson-Persons suggestion---however, she suggested going for the Dim Sum cart, which is weekend only)
I must admit that I've basically lost all my notes from the last round since I have changed computers, hence lost some of my mind
, so please let me know of your interest and I will get a mailing list together for us to get things going again.
