Blogger party deux: December 8th

Two weeks notice! I'm going to so a 2nd blogger dinner.

Now, the cheesecake factory worked really well... But I've been asked for a location outside of the south bay.

How is old town Pasadena for everyone? For that's the location! Il Fornaio* is going to be it. December 8th, for dinner (6pm... blogger dinners are long dinners!)

Note: I'm asking on the location, but we'll pick this date! If Old town Pasadena doesn't work...

So either post in the comments, or e-mail wannabuy3@gmail.com. Let me know an RSVP (yes/no/maybe), how many, and if you can make old town pasadena. (Also let me know if reverting back to the south bay would or wouldn't work.)
Got popcorn?

* oops... edit on spelling.
edit: We're set on Old Town Passadena, Il Fornaio, 6pm Dec 8th.

Count me in for OTP! My better half will be busy, but I'll be there for sure.

p.s.: It's "Il Fornaio". ;-)

Looks like OTP is a popular choice!

Time for a fun meal?

I live in Westchester (near LAX), so South Bay is MUCH better than OTP.

Do you realize how boring it is to read "Got popcorn?" after every god damn post of yours?

It's not cute, and it's not original. Please stop it.

Mjchohen,

Alas, it looks like OTP is going to be the preferred location.

Anon: I'll stop when people stop trying to put everyone into a home they cannot afford. We bears didn't create this mess.

I think it's a cute comment!! Very appropriate to the situation since we are all tired of sitting here and watching this play out like a very tired movie that goes on and on!! Plus don't use the Lord's name in vain!

desi dude said...

I may show up. Need to get permission :). atleast 1, may be 2 (if spouse agrees to come)

Gwynster said...

someone slap me, but there is a really remote chance I might make it.

I'll probably be grumpy as I hate anything south of SLO and just about break into hives if I cross the OC line but i need to check on a me madre'.

_IF_ I make it, it'll be just me. Still trying to figure out logistics.

Are you counting me twice?

Lalawyer said...

I'd love to come. I'm also much closer to South Bay.

HARM said...

If it's going to be in OTP, please count me in. Otherwise, I probably won't be able to make it as I have 2 functions to attend that evening.

Have you tried the Rocco Room at Cafe Santorini? Great for large, loud groups.
I'm up for swaping war stories. I can bring my camera and tripod and we can take a group picture in front of the mansion listing for $59 million.

Reservation made for TEN. Will bust the place open as needed. ;)

Rosalie said...

Hello Neil,

I probably will be going and taking my husband..I hope it is welcome to all ages. I am 22 but have been following your blog all along.

:)

wannabuy said...

Rosalie,

You're welcome to join! We even had a young kid at the last event, so you'll see a wide variety of ages.

So that makes twelve and a bunch of maybes.

Its going to probably rain, so bring an umbrella. Our reservation is for inside (thankfully the host insisted when I called due to the weather forecast). I'll show up a little early (say by 5:30pm).

I'm looking forward to it!

Got popcorn?
Neil

Hey Neil,
O.K., I'll be taking the "gold line"
What's the address?

Gwynster said...

Neil,

I'm going to miss it. I'm still in Sacramento, working on a weekend ....again.

wannabuy said...

What's the address:

24 W Union St, Pasadena, CA

Memorial Park is the closest 'gold line' station, which is five blocks away. Note: The Il Fornaio is burried in the middle of Smith Alley, Douglas Alley, and Bonham Alley (its at the end of Douglas Alley).

There is a public parking structure on Mills Pl for those of us contributing to global warming. ;)

See you all there!

Neil
