Meet me in Jacksonville -- week of 11/14

Hey guys,
I'll be in Jacksonville, FL for a business trip the week of November 14th. Anyone want to meet me for drinks and dinner some night while I'm out there?

I like you Steve, but not six hour drive each way much.

Sorry, Steve, but I'll be in NYC that week.

I think I'm the only TCFer in Jacksonville. I don't come into this part of the forum that often so almost didn't see this.

I don't drink, but I'd be happy to meet for dinner some night (if you don't mind boring sober guys, instead of the hot drunk babes I know you were secretly hoping for). You here for the whole week or what? Anything interesting bringing you to town?

I'm going to give this a bump because I missed it entirely until I saw it on Hefe's super-cool map.

I'm not so far away that I couldn't come up for dinner. TB, you don't want to carpool with me?

sschwart, what is your schedule going to be like that week?

I was going to PM people when it got a little closer to the date, since I figured no one saw this thread.

I'll be getting into Jacksonville on Sunday night. I've got a class that 5 "full days of instruction", and then I fly out at 3pm on Saturday. Not a lot of spare time, but it would be great to see anyone who could make it. I will have a rental car, so it's feasible for me to drive somewhere more central if it's not that far away, especially Friday night.

And Ereth, I'm glad to have a meal with you, with or without alcohol

What kind of class? What hotel are you staying in?

And Anubis, I was hoping you'd be able to come up and visit while sschwart was here!

I will do my best. So we're aiming for Friday night? Can we make it a late-ish dinner so I have time to drive up after work?

I'm taking a computer forensics course. Hotel is not booked yet, but probably will be the Holiday Inn by the airport.

I'm able to meet any night that week, I just figured Friday might be easier for anyone not in Jacksonville itself. Let me know when you can make it Anubis, and we'll plan accordingly around it

Sounds interesting. The Airport is about as far from my house as you can get and still be in Jax, but if you'd like to drop by one night, see the DLP TV, meet the incredibly cute brown and white dachshund, etc, we can arrange that.

Unfortunately, that's like two weeks before finals. I just don't have the time, as tempting as the offer is.

Maybe if you were doing more studying now, it wouldn't be such a big deal. :P

Really. It's just too damn far and I don't have the time.

Joules is a big girl. If she wants to go, she can go on her own.

Darn it, sschwart. If only you'd be there on Saturday night I could have tried to work TB into taking a road trip with me to come up and meet you. You are DEFINITELY on my list of people I need to meet

Saturday night I can't do, but I don't fly out until Saturday afternoon...

You know you want to come up and visit


Ereth, any suggestions for resturaunts for Friday night? You being the resident, I imagine you would know the best spots. So long as I can get a seafood or vegetarian dish, I'm game for anything

And I'd love to come and meet the pup.

I'm starting to get excited about this. Not too far away now!

What price range are we talking about? River City Brewing Company is pretty well known for it's seafood, but it's a touch on the pricy side. They have cool fish tanks everywhere, though, and it's literally on the River (they have a boat dock, even!).

Not as fancy as Mortons of Chicago, though, which is (I think) our only 5-star restaurant.

Both of those are downtown. The Airport is way north of that, and I'm way south of it. About a half hour each way. Up in the Airport area I have no idea what restaurants are around. I get up there so rarely. I do remember the Busch Plant, if you want a tour of a Beer Factory. There's probably an Applebees or something similar up there, though, if you are into that.

I don't eat seafood at all, so I'm not really up on the Seafood places. Ok, I'm not much on restaurants, so I'm not up on most of them. Ordinarily I'd say someplace more casual, like Souper Salad, but they've closed down. Fried Tomatoes is a similar "all you can eat Salad Bar" place up in Regency, but I'll have to check if they are still around, as I haven't been to Regency in about a year. I know there's some nice places out by the beach, and there's a really wild place with animals all over the wall and lots of Catfish that my sister took me to once that I can't quite remember the name of (Somebodys Fish Camp) that had a decent Sirloin Steak, too.

My house is about an hour drive from the Airport. You are, of course, welcome, you'll just want to plan a night with some free time for the drive. I don't know how busy that school is going to keep you.

I checked with my sister and she reminded me it's "Clarks Fish Camp" and it's excellent, but she also pointed out it can be a bit difficult to get into on a Friday or Saturday night if you don't get there early.

She also recommended St Johns Seafood on San Jose as good seafood, reasonable prices and a more casual atmosphere.

If you want more than just the two of you (really, I can't go), you should send an invite to Catburger or DTF in South Carolina, or the Atlanta people, or the New Orleans people (if they are back home and dry).

(Note to the Florida geographically ignorant: Atlanta, South Carolina, and New Orleans are are closer to Jacksonville than Miami).

(for the record, Dallas is farther from Jacksonville than Miami is )

They have exactly one thing on that menu that I'll eat, and that's a $21 Filet Mignon. But if you guys want to go there, I'm willing to try it. It's sschwartz' trip, I'm game for whatever he wants.

Well, it was just a suggestion.

Sschwartz, any input?

The menu at Max's looks nice, but I wouldn't want to pick a place where anyone's options are limited to only 1 item. I've been in that situation too many times myself.

I'm sure there are plenty of places that have options for everyone.

Don't sweat it. I LIKE Filet Mignon. So if you guys want to go there, I'm game.

If you don't have a problem with it, then it sounds just fine to me. Let's go with that one. What time will you be able to make it to town, Anubis?
