Not only did I slaughter Bally's to the tune of $800, but I slaughtered all food that came my way saturday night, reestablishing myself as the leading glutton of the year candidate. Once again, a great time was had had by all - our biggest (non-AC) group yet! Kathleen didn't seem to care for the eclair, but I think she must have gotten one that had been filled with broccoli instead of custard.

We'll do it all again next month, so feel free to post preferred March dates anytime - everyone's invited!

Hooray for the Gunnings Gang!

March is a new opportunity to join the crew, come on in - the PBR is cold, the crab cakes are perfect, and the company is as warm as it gets

Keep your fingers crossed that we can go see Brett's folks this weekend (they live on a mountain near Lexington VA), thus March 10 will be available!!

Still hoping that March 10 can stick for everyone, I'm making some plans around the fact that I'll be in Balt area that eve. Anyone that's a definite YES (or NO for that matter) please post here or send a PM to me or Sherry so that we can plan and make reservations accordingly.

Thanks!

Good deal John, we're looking forward to it! I'm guessing that it's a safe bet that you won't be having ice cream for dessert

See you there!

Of course, I'll insist on a Gunnings dinner whenever I'm in the area! I bet they can match the seafood just fine down in the keys, but the good company (and PBR) might be harder to find

Default Timbuktu??

Sherry mentioned in the AC party thread going to Timbuktu in May. I figured I'd bring the conversation back to the Mini MD BB Party thread. Getting there Memorial Day weekend would be dicey for me. Is anyone available for lunch on Sunday, May 20?

so far we have 3 couples for this date. timbuktu is a great place for crab cakes and anything seafood. plus i have to say our friend got the prime rib a few weeks ago and it was the biggest i ever saw.
