With all the current action & energy on board, is there a first 2006 meet-up being planned?

I will help if needed.

Both andy112129 and prankster have expressed an interest in having another one. I'm about to get much busier at work, so I can't plan it, but I can help (and will try and make it). The last one was great at Founders. We could try Gardella's or Cottage Bar this time (or maybe another spot?). There were about 10 of us last time, so expect a few more this time. :thumbsup:

I wonder if any local developers have any buildings of interest we can go through :whistling:

Any of those locations would be fine with me. Hopefully I can make it to the next one. :thumbsup:

If you're looking for places I might be able to arrange something someplace with some sort of UP.org deal or something.. if you're interested...

How about just everyone getting together at one of our houses for a spring cookout?

I think someplace downtown might be better, personally. And before Spring comes.

Yeah, I definitely want to see the guy behind mrknowitall. :) I looked for you in Zoolander recently, but I must've missed it.

Touring a developer's project from here would be a great idea if we could put something together. :thumbsup:

I'm a pretty big fan of the new Graydon's Crossing near Plainfield and Leonard. Nice English beer and grub. Same owner as Logan's Alley and Cambridge House. Maybe combine it with a tour of the new development in the old Water Treatment Plant (right down the street). Anyone know any of the guys at DeVries Construction well enough to ask for a walk through?

Do they have "true" English sausages on the menu at Graydon's Crossing? I can't find them in the US. They have a unique taste of their own. Not spicy.

That's weird, I posted pics of both of those places today :huh: Or is that where you got the idea? They hosted the AIA - Grand Valley there at the Monroe Plant last Fall. I'll bet someone affiliated with AIA could make it happen :whistling:

They do have a plate with some cheeses, Irish Bacon and "Bangers". Are those English Sausages?

Somehow I think after that meet-up, there would be no point of having another meetup. EVERYONE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO LEAVE, "wait, where in the hell do I live, hey their good lookin'... ahh burb, ahhh."

Well I do not see going through 212-216 Grandville Ave as being a problem. I would be happy to arrange a time for us to go through the first floor retail renovation. We are finishing up on the exterior store fronts next week. The building is beginning to take shape. I would love to join the next meeting. Name the time and place and I will be there. I will nestle ERic into coming out to play as well.

Latah,

I talked with Larry Zeiser from Graydon's. They would be happy to host the meet-up.
