I’m starting a separate thread for this so everyone is sure to see it… over on the Drew’s Bayshore Bistro thread, @paryzer and I and a few others have been talking about a January HOdown at Drew’s. @paryzer was there last night and reports the following:
Since it was a busy Saturday night, I was only able to talk to Drew for a couple of minutes regarding a possible future HOdown. I gave him a tentative date of Saturday January 26th. He will call me after the New Year so we can further discuss and plan menus. I will send out more details after I talk to him in a couple of weeks. So anybody that is interested, please save the date. @CurlzNJ graciously agreed to take names and tally the total number of people that are interested. It would be nice to have an idea of how many people can actually commit to that date so I can have a number to give to Drew and work out the menu. Since Drew’s is a fairly small restaurant, the most he can probably accommodate on a busy Saturday night is about 10 to 12 people. However, he is open to an earlier seating prior to the big Saturday night dinner rush (maybe 3 or 4PM). He might have to impose a time limit, since Saturday’s are busy. I would think we might need up to 3 hours to not feel rushed (since many of us will be meeting for the 1st time). Unfortunately Drew is not open on Sundays during the winter months.
We have a TENTATIVE date for Saturday, Jan. 26th (no playoff games–the Pro Bowl is the next day, and SuperBowl a week later).
We need to find out QUICKLY who is definitely interested and available so we can lock down the timing with Drew after New Year’s, so please respond here if you’re definitely in. We don’t have pricing at this point, as we’ll likely work on a menu with him.
Once we know who’s in, we’ll be able to lock down the timing (3-4pm vs. dinner at a less @seal - like time)
If you wish to attend, please respond on this thread, NOT ON THE OTHER ONE before 12/31.
Thanks, HOs! And a happy/merry to those who are celebrating Christmas.
