    Merle's been bugging me to go back to this place. Let's kill two birds with one stone and reconvene there. Maybe the pistol packing tea guy will be present. Those of you that want to exchange balls or other food delicacies know the drill.

    Toast, as every breakfaster knows, isn't really about the quality of the bread or how it's sliced or even the toaster. For man cannot live by toast alone. It's all about the butter. -- Adam Gopnik

    It will be great to see you both.

    For the exchange, I am providing Ukrainian Borsch. I have never made this particular recipe before, though so far it seems promising.

    I've been a couple of times and enjoyed it, but don't think I'll be able to attend. However, I do want to point out one thing on the menu.

    The small print on the grilled meats section says
    All meats are grilled medium well unless advised otherwise.


    My first time there I missed it and my kabobs were done a bit more than I liked. Second time I asked for medium rare and they got it spot on.

    Service is very accommodating. I'm sure you'll all have a fine time.
    Where there’s smoke, there may be salmon.

    I am time/tide/health allowing planning to join you for dinner.

    What would be my "drop dead" time to sign up?

    Feel free to call the restaurant and add one more to the reservation. I’m coming from another event before dinner and won’t be able to make the call for you.

    Hi,

    I have a very last minute trip downstate Monday leaving home around 4 or 5 AM.

    I think I need to stay home tomorrow evening to prep, I hope Dave can bring my contribution. Later this week, I can pick yours up from Dave.

    This was not expected or known to me until earlier today, then I hoped it was not my duty to go. "But you know everything about this ..." famous last words.

    On the plus side, I may finally get to try Wally's (gas station) brisket sandwich.

    Regards,
    Cathy2

    While I'll miss Cathy2, I'll take her seat at the table and keep it an even 8.

    See you at 5:30.
