    Hello LTH, been awhile since I've planned a dinner for this forum. Based on below quick feedback, Dec 1 is the date.

    The existing LTH thread on Mehanata is here: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=27612

    If you are interested please either indicate so by posting or feel free to send PM to me. ALL ARE WELCOME !

    I'm happy to pick up a few LTHers if coming by NW UP Metra line (Des Plaines stop). Pace bus 250 is another option for public transportation.

    Date: Wed Dec 1

    Time: 7pm

    Mehanata
    1141 Lee St.
    Des Plaines, IL 60016

    I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be.

    Definitely interested. Weeknights are good most of the time, and sometimes, a weekend is free. Do what works for most but know that I'll be there is there isn't something massively important in the way.

    I'm interested as well.

    HI,

    If this should be shifted into November, I will be ok, too. :D

    Glad folks are interested, it appears time to throw out some dates and let's have the group decide.

    Let's also discuss time. Does 6:30pm work? (I'm fine with any time but realize some may have longer travel times after work)

    Thurs Nov 18
    Tues Nov 30
    Wed Dec 1
    Thurs Dec 2
    Wed Dec 8
    Thurs Dec 9

    Of the dates that Cathy is free, Thursday November 18 works for me (but it would need to be 7 pm, I would be late at 6:30). Wednesday December 1 is excellent any time. I can't make Thursday December 2.

    I am not sure about Dec. 8 or 9. They get close to possible holiday travel and holiday parties.

    11/30 and 12/1 both work for me. 6:00 is better for me but 6:30 would certainly work.

    Thanks,

    All are good for Moetchandon and me, although If it's a Wednesday or Thursday, we probably won't be able to get there 'til 7.

    ok, based on the above, I'll state 7pm dinner on Wed Dec 1. seems that will fit into most folks calendar as well as time.

    I'll adjust first post to reflect attendees & timing

    I'm looking forward to this !!

    I've checked the weather forecast for this day, and it looks sufficiently unthreatening. (Cold temperatures, slick road conditions, high accumulations of snow would find me not venturing outside. :x)
    I have to remember to operate the 1987 Chevrolet Sprint occasionally so that its battery does not drain. :roll:
    So please add me to the register. :)
