Need ideas where people would want to eat/meet/greet in Duluth or Superior on a Sunday.
Perkins?
OCB?

The area has gone too long without a meetup, and I've been itching to do one for a while.

OCB worked good last time. Sundays are bad days (for me anyway).

Propose it for a BB. It has been a while since we had on up there.

Gonna be in Hinckley next month, but I can do a Duluth one too soon.

Even if Neo does her event, I'd still love to have another BB up here. The more the better!

Trouble for me is I work Saturdays 9-5, so I was thinking a bit of a breakfast get together on a Sunday morning.

I can see the dilemma then.

Sundays are typically church days.

What about a Saturday dinner? We've had a number of dinner ones over the years.. I heard that the Bulldog Pizza event went well although I didn't make it to that one.

That's a good idea too. I've been thinking about the Indian restaurant downtown, because their food is SO good. (we love the buffet) and the guys that work there give great service. But I understand that not everyone loves Indian food, lol. So perhaps a Sammy's Pizza or OCB would be a better fit Laughing

My work schedule is so stupid. M-TH and Saturday, with Friday and Sunday off. Shocked

That is kind of a pain.

A Saturday evening might be fun this summer some time. Hubs and I could make a weekend of it, get a nice hotel. If we don't have other obligations we would come!

I've never planned an event before, lol. Perhaps I will plan this one for sometime in May.

I think i might throw together a little coffee m&g sometime in the near future, just for kicks too, to get familiar with the planning aspect.

I'll be happy to answer any questions about setting up an event that you may have. Just give me a shout.

The hardest part in this area is finding a location that can accomodate a group of ~30+ during a meal time without committing to buy x dollars of food or paying an upfront fee.

I can give you suggestions if you like.. It's a very short list, although it's been a couple of years since I've called around to make reservations for a large group.

A favorite Duluth stop of mine is the Hacienda del Sol(http://www.hacienda-del-sol.com/).

Maybe time to bring the Buritto Buddies up north?
