I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to make it. Finals are coming up quick and I'm really behind and need to study.

I may have been up for a quick dinner in Broward, but unfortunately, I don't have the time to go all the way up to WPB, and have the full night of debauhcery that Thaed so obviously desires.

Have fun, all.

Ok. I'm definitely still in on this one, but we need to get a plan going (and by "we" I mean "someone else"). Although I'm thinking this is going to end up being like Hotami.

I know TB backed out . I know Thaed, Indy, and I are still in (or at least I hope so). Are Tracey, Roy, Hot4Boy, and EddyJ still in? What about Daperlman?

If we do this at EddyJ's (can we still do this at EddyJ's or are we past Mrs. EddyJ's deadline?): Thaed needs to find transportation and I'm not sure if that's possible. EddyJ's is approximately 1 hour away from the hotel.

If we do this in Palm Beach, near the hotel: I looked up Thaed's hotel (Ritz Carlton PB - 100 S. Ocean Blvd?) and there are many restaurants nearby (within 2 miles) none of which I recognize. I would, however, put my vote in for Riggins Crab House (www.rigginscrabhouse.com) simply because they have garlic crabs.

So, it seems we need to figure out two things:
1. Who's going to be there.
2. Where is "there" going to be.

I am still in, either way. My deadline if we are hosting is Wed (maybe Thurs, but don't push it). WPB is easier for everybody except Joules, and she does not care. But we need a restaurant, and we need reservations, so we need numbers. So check in and throw your 2 cents! We could also do a restaurant around here and then come over to my house to hang for a while (or hang before).

I really don't want anything other than a nice meal with you folks. For those who remember Hotlanta, I was probably the first one who left. I need my beauty sleep and Sunday is filled with hours of legal seminars. So I vote for a PB restaurant.

I don't think I can do it... this weekend. I just got back from Jax and I need to spend some time with the girl I am seeing (she wasn't too thrilled I missed her halloween party for UGA / FLA game). We are going to Oktoberfest in Helen.

Good news though, an old friend of mine is dating some dude who works @ the 4 seasons on Ocean there... so I am fully expecting the hook up - and like I said I am down there all the time.

As for Lake Worth area... there is plenty to eat around there. Leila looked really good, but alas it was closed on Sunday when I had time to eat there.

As for Thaed's transportation,the Ritz will provide you a car and driver and that is more fun away. Driver will point out all the famous people's places on your way to and from hotel.

The Four Seaons also has a really cool bar, (called living room I think). Spacious with plenty of outdoor settings. I remember thinking how nice it was for taking a date of hanging out with a group of friends. Of course there were some places on the beach also.

And I am out, too.

Work is f-ed up. I have to fly home early and crank out a video project before Monday. I'll probably be working all weekend. Sorry, folks!

Well, Thaed, it looks like it might just be you and me. (oops. and EddyJ!)
Although I am disappointed that Indy won't be joining us.

If we take the "folks" out of that sentence then it makes a little bit more sense.

OK, so who' left? It looks like we are going to West Palm, but don't know where. Thaed will be there. Joules and I have said we can go. What about the gonads? Hot4Bo? Anyone else?

Sorry I haven't checked in here in a few days. Busy, busy getting back to work after the hurricane.

I am definitely still in.

Sadly the Gonad family probably won't be able to make it. Our kids are not restaurant friendly.
Tracey and I could possibly make it if it's a start at 6 finish at 8 or 9 kinda deal and we can palm the kids off on Tracey's mom, then it's a possibility.

Thaed, Tracey says that if we can't make it she is just going to be devastated, not being able to meet you and all

We'll try to find out tonight about the baby sitter if somebody can come up with some kind of plan.

That's perfect! Meet at the restaurant at 6 and hang out until 9. Perfect. I think the default plan should be the restaurant in the hotel at the PB Ritz unless someone comes up with a better idea.

Thaed, can you make a reservation at the hotel restaurant? Places down here are still getting very full, because of so many are still without power.

Reservations for 6 at 6 p.m. at Soleil at the Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach Saturday, November 5th.

So far it is: Hot4Bo, Joules, Eddy, Buster, TiVoTracey & me. Please advise if you can't make it or TB and others, let me know if you change your mind and you can come so I can adjust reservations accordingly.

I look forward to seeing you!

Is this a kid friendly restaurant? I may have to bring one rugrat with me. I just can't take the thought of not seeing Thaed when he is going to be soooo close - I will do anything just to get there!

Tracey, it's a hotel, so I can't imagine that kids wouldn't fit in.

I'm looking forward to seeing you too! Oh and Buster too!

Thaed, add one more, please. MrsJ will be coming too. Once she heard Indy was out, she decided to join us.

Just kidding, the only mini-meets she has attended have been at Indy's.

Well, then I guess I should be asking if anyone else minds if we have to bring our son. There is still a chance that my mom can take him, but.....well, let's just say she can't be counted on to hold to her word.

I really, really, really, really, really hope we can make it!

Semi-bad news guys.

I made the mistake of doing proper maintainance on my car today. So now instead of having tires with 17-22 psi they are all properly inflated to 42 psi. Including the one that has developed a bubble and now needs to be replaced. And now it's unsafe on a highway and could easily blow out.

So I'm not in my car right now on the way to Boca. I'm still at home.

I went to 3 tire places tonight and none of them had a tire in stock that would fit my car. Unfortunately, my little Mazda has an odd tire size. The guy at the tire place closest to me said he could probably get one and have it on my car by noon tomorrow. That's if he can locate it.

Hopefully all will go well and I'll make it to dinner. Otherwise I'm going to cry.

I could possibly give you a ride, if you get desperate. But that would not help your weekend in Boca plans.
