Meet.

61 posts in this topic

I've been not so subtly hinting and suggesting that we should have a meet for the last month or two and since that hasn't worked I've decided to make a thread. I seriously think that given that we are on a forum about Tallahasse a city we all love that we should at least take the time to meet our fellow lovers of this place. We have a 38 page restraunt thread so it's quite obvioes that we love to eat so I suggest we set a date eitehr for lunch or dinner sometime in a week or two and all go out and have a good time. I don't care if only one or two of you are willing to come we'll still have a meet.

humzai I will meet up with you. It would be nice to meet others as well. My wife gets so sick and tired pf me always talking about new things going up in Tallahassee and always talking about how to make this place better than ever, it would be nice to talk to someone who shares my interest...lol. So I think this thread is a good one. My suggestion is to meet at a Local owned Business instead of a chain, but since I have only been in Tallahassee for 2 .5 years it would be nice if someone that has been here longer make a suggestion about were to meet and we can go from there "Hint GHOSTOFSWANEE since you seem to be the big local restaurant guy/gal". The debate about were we should meet could be fun and interesting. :D

But if I meet you and like you.....then how would I ever be able to disagree/argue w/you again on the board? Putting a face to your screen name will make me an old softy. :huh:

IMHO the restaurant should not be too noisy and not too busy so that good conversation and lingering could occur. You know some of us don't have the hearing of 20 year old. Hell when I was 20 I still couldn't hear.

I wanted to try Romano's Macaroni Grill but mracca's suggestion we have it at a locally owned place seems like a good idea. What about that country restraunt that's outside the city? I'd also prefer it's during the week as I am often away on the weekends. Perhaps mid next week?

Humzai if you want to meet at the Macaroni Grill then that's fine. You started the thread so don't let my 2 cents affect you original plans. I am always up for some good Italian food!!!!!

Your Idea about meeting during the week is great, better chance of hitting up MG when it is less busy.

You cant use that old excuse cause you already know what "TJ " the "photo guy" and "Toolman" already look like based upon our Avatars!!! LOL

We could meet up at the new Waffle House with Hang overs on Apalachee Parkway!!! JJ

Sure I started the thread but that dosen't mean I'm the dictator of the meet. Is Macaroni Grill fine then?

Wherever you guys meet I'll be there, just as long as it's near a bus route. Otherwise, count me out since I don't have a car <_<

I'm sure one of us could pick you up from the nearest bus stop. Well I'm willing to at the least.

My fear would be that MG will be CRAZY busy since it will be brand new and it will be the holiday shopping season. Remember you'll probably need to get a bigger table and those are even harder to come by when it's busy. If you guys decide to remain at MG, I'd go on an off-day and even more important at an off time.

Remember eating out during the holiday shopping time is even crowded and crazy on a weeknight.

Well perhaps we should try something else? Maybe we should like car pool to someplace outside the city?

Why dont you guys pick a time you want to go to MG, then just call ahead. It is the best kept secret that really isnt a secret about restaurants.

Yeah not a secret and often times I've found w/large parties at Carrabba's, Outback and even Ted's that this secret means you still sometimes have to wait for a long period of time. That still doesn't fix the problem of noise and enjoying each other's company w/out being rushed.

I agree, it will still be loud! Calling ahead is definitely not a secret, yet it amazes me the amount of people that would still rather wait for an hour/hour 1/2 rather than just calling to see how long the wait is and putting your name on it.

I agree! I had a bad experience one time at Carrabba's w/a call ahead for a big party, but usually it works very well.

So are you saying there could be a gator at this potential gathering?

I'd be down for it too. How old are all of you all? I'm curious about the demographics of this board. I just turned 22 and am a senior at FSU.
