    Hi all,

    Ok...I've got a limited number of spots available for a sneak preview of Edzo's Burger Shop tomorrow (Tuesday) at lunch time. I can accommodate another 15-20 people, so chime in here and let me know if you're interested. I'm going to be training my staff, so I know you'll all understand that your choices will be somewhat limited, the food may take a bit longer than you'd expect at a quick serve place, you should reserve judgment, since we're working on it, and I won't have much time to chat with people.

    That said...there will be freshly ground burgers, fresh-cut fries, Maxwell Polishes, and lots of other good stuff.

    Let me know. And PLEASE don't come by unless you check in with me first. I'm happy to have people to help us with this, and, really you'll be doing me a favor, but I just don't want to bite off more than we're able to handle and end up disappointing people and/or turning the training into a free-for-all. Thanks for understanding.

    Please let me know if there's room for one more. Edzo's is mere minutes from my office. The thought of hand-dipped milkshakes and onion rings just beckoning me every day, leaving my healthy salad wilting in the office fridge, is sort of scary :-)

    I'm only a few blocks away. Mind if I come by?

    Great to talk with you at the picnic.

    ok, everyone who asked up till now is in. And with that, I'm going to call it full.

    Thanks, everyone for the interest, and sorry if anyone got left out, but we'll open soon enough and then you can come in every single day if you want.

    Molly, I'll look forward to seeing you and Justin tomorrow. You too, GWiv, Tom and Grace.

    Perhaps some day the Evanston Lunch Group can actually have lunch in Evanston. :lol:

    Tomorrow is looking like it'll be a crazy day in the office, and there's a chance I won't be able to get out for lunch. So I think it's best that I give up my spot. Hopefully there's someone waiting to fill it. Thanks very much for the invitation, Eddie, and I hope we meet soon!

    Thanks to everyone who came to this, your presence was really helpful for me. Much appreciated. Also, thanks much to those who sent me feedback...anyone who still has any thoughts to share--good, bad, whatever--please feel free to PM me.

    Thanks, again!

    Chuck Sudo had a nice writeup of this event; I agree that it'll be a significant addition to Evanston's downtown lunch scene. Thanks to Eddie for the preview and taking time to chat about his plans. He's doing it right.
