Move us up to probable.

Son's schedule is to defend his dissertation in early May, so he won't complete all of the requirements in time to get his hood on 5/19.

He just wants a decent job - doesn't care about appearing at a graduation ceremony. W & I want both, of course.

I have a great hotel downtown in mind, are we doing just one hotel?

I think one hotel or a couple in the same vicinity would be a pretty good idea.

So will a itinerary be provided in case I can only come down Saturday? That way we'd know where to meet all you crazy kids?

I'm trying to make it work with my work events that weekend!

I have a rudimentary itinerary in mind, but I am still kinda waiting on answers to the question of kids or no kids. That will affect what I choose. Right now my plan for Saturday is a picnic lunch at the park and possibly a piano bar/restaurant later that evening. I have lots of brochures and sightseeing places for independent exploring. Input?

Do Heart and I not get added to the "Maybe" list? I mean, I guess we're technically locals, so there's really not a whole lot for us to plan on, since we'll just go back to our house when we're good and ready.

Ok Peeps. Lets get serious!

JessicaFL has found a hotel for us all. We can get a group rate. We need at least 10 people to commit to get this rate. And we need to know by April 12th.

Nice hotel. Great rate.

PM JessicaFL and let her know if you are "in" or not and she will give you the hotel info.

I'm "in". Count me as 1.

Ready...set...go!

Thanks Aubrie. The hotel blocked ten rooms for us and the lady just updated me via email to say that as long as 50% of our rooms are used each night, we won't be charged for the unused rooms. That weekend is very booked in stl, two universities are graduating and the cards are in town against the brewers so we need to act quickly. If you want double rooms those are first come first served.

Help! I want to go and can't afford the regular rate. sorry to be sorry, but with the furlough coming I have to be careful with money.

It's looking more and more like I'm not going to make it. Darn odds keep stacking up against me.

NIK,

Moo didn't look like he was sweating in TX. Lounging with a glass of wine, shoulder and neck massage, hot stone massage for feet... I did not see him sweat. Nope not one bead of sweat...

Ok, I finally have my travel schedule, and it looks like I'll be in town that weekend.

Can someone PM me the detailed itinerary when it's known?

I still have things I'll need to do, so I won't be able to attend everything, but we'll see what I can do.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, after examining the financials, SilverRose and I will not be able to make it. We were really hoping to be able to make it, but we would be budgeted tighter than Scrooge's purse strings. We are sorry for not being able to get there, and hope the rest of you have a great weekend.

Looking for some guidance.... It's probably too late to get a room at the designated hotel, and it's way more than I want to spend anyway. I'm looking at earning or spending some Marriott points either out by the airport or on the Illinois side and the answers to my question could help me decide.

1) What's the parking sitch by the Arch - is it difficult to find space? The info I have is $6 for 9 hours - is that true? Or would it be better to take Metrolink? On the whole, is Metrolink a feasible option for Saturday or not?

2) Is Saturday evening's entertainment going to be by the Arch/Laclede's Landing?

3) Is anything planned for Friday evening? If not, are other folks besides us interested in getting together on Friday night? (Low key preferred.)

Thanks.

Sisoon, .I want to hang out Friday night! Parking is ok by the Arch...really depends on the weather. And the Metro does go right to the Arch area...I'm waiting to see hoe much the river rises in the next two weeks....and how much rain we get that weekend. That could change plans for an Arch picnic....but we always have Forest Park, or tons of other options.

And Aubrie....we DO have one thing planned.....Moo's pedi on Saturday morning! Is this a spectator affair, or do we sneak him in and out and just display the results later?

1. I would offer to protect Moo, but he can protect himself, especially Saturday morning.

2. Are other local folks driving to the Arch or Metro-ing?

3. During the 1927 flood (see Rising Tide by John Barry) the water flow in The River was apparently 3 million gallons/minute. I think I'd like to see the river flowing in 2 weeks....

4. Yeah, we ought to have a rain plan for Saturday.

Someone brought up a good point about the picnic that I was wondering too. How will we do the food? I can pick something up, we can grill, etc. Should we all chip in? Let's discuss.

Also brunch for Sunday. Jilly's is good, but expensive and requires a reservation. A normal diner style restaurant would work too, thoughts?

And Friday dinner- it would be somewhere on the Hill (Italian part close to downtown) about 6 or 7?

These are small problems. even if we all show up without food, I suspect we'll be able to figure something out. Thinking ahead may be better, though.

We'll be coming from 300 miles away, so it'll be hard to make something to bring that won't poison anyone who eats it. But we don't know the area, so we can't promise to buy fresh stuff in locally to bring.

(Besides, the best food I know is ice cream, and I'm not sure it would make it to the Arch without melting.) As for my W, she has some major food allergies, so it's sometimes difficult for her to eat what everyone else does.

OTOH, we do have the ability to take some sandwiched from here and keep them safely refrigerated for the trip, so I know that would work for us. Besides, our route South goes right by a first-class Jewish deli....

Is there a restaurant onsite, whence we could all pick stuff up to eat al fresco?

Can we drink wine in the park by the Arch? (Or should it be whiskey, like Lewis and Clark? Or does it have to be beer, in Busch's honor?)

Fellow St. Louisian here, wishing you all a wonderful upcoming weekend!

JessicaFL127 informed me of the planned get together but unfortuantely I will be in New Orleans for my oldest DD's graduation from law school.

Have fun and enjoy the city!

G2G is new to me. Not sure if my wife would be willing to go...can just one of the spouses attend or is that taboo and asking for trouble?

Just looking for a little guidance here.

thanks,

Blakesteele,

Everyone is welcome to a G2G, couples, singles, one person from the relationship (maybe the other has commitments and can't get away). Whatever you and your wife decide is good. Both of you will be welcomed... just like on SI.

I hope you decide to go.. there is nothing that compares to meeting (and putting a face to the name) and feeling the warmth from these boards in real life.

I can promise, you won't regret it.

Hugs,

K

blakesteele, Kajem pretty much summed it up.

It's pretty cool meeting real life SIers. Mr. and I have been to 1 "official" G2G and a mini with a couple of friends. Both times were pretty awesome.

My concern is this....my wife has told me several times she is done with SI...doesnt need to read what she already knows (from advice from other WS to what I post on here).

I find SI really helpful...gave her my password so that she could find my posts easily...thought that was beneficial. I just changed my password due to a really bad experience I had with her (not SI related, just her committment level to me and our M)..and it is probably the right choice. She can join and follow my posts easily through that format if she desires. again, she has said she doesnt desire to come here.

I dont think she would be up to attending...but I will ask her. The 18th doesnt work for us due to a family event...but am interested in attending one sometime...maybe.

I say maybe because I am really concerned about bonding to another BS...a BW to be exact.

I was enthused to see Sissoon was coming...as I just posted I would love to share a meal with him sometime.

I love my family...just concerned that coming alone to a G2G event would be dangerous for me. Since my wifes A I have viewed other women in a very different light...as a real possibility for me...no longer just in fantasy play (even that I NOW wonder is as docile as I once thought it was).

Thanks for educating me on what a G2G event is...just found out about them less then a week ago...and in less then a week it is in a very easy driving distance from our home.

KB, for the most part yes.

The only thing not updated is the venue for Friday. I think that info will be given via PM.

ETA: What are the chances of Heart bringing her flute and playing one of her audition pieces for us? I dunno about everyone else, but I''d love to hear her perform.

I sooo wanted to catch up with you all. However this is the first weekend all year that it is going to be decent out, so alas I am going to Lake of the Ozarks to Crappie Fish.

If Grants Farm is on your agenda, you can see my bee hives that we recently placed there, they are behind the fence at the far end of where the Llamas are.

You have a beautiful weekend to enjoy our beautiful town.

Weather forecast is fantastic!

Friday: Partly sunny with a chance for a scattered shower or storm... highs in the lower 80s.

Saturday: Partly cloudy and maybe a spot shower (especially in Illinois) with highs in the middle 80s.

Sunday: Partly cloudy with scattered showers & storms possible after dark... mid 80s to near 90.

I'm still deciding which dozen pair of shoes to whittle it down to. . . No clunky work boots this weekend!

Ok guys! I have two tables of eight reserved for tomorrow night at 630. They don't split checks, so each table will have a check. If everyone brings cash I think it would be ok.

And Aubrie, there is a good chance that I will show up in scrubs tomorrow after work, so you will automatically be better dressed than me. I will try to change first though.


See you all tomorrow!

Hey everyone,

I am hoping to join for as much as I can but I wanted to put a plug in for one of my favorite new places....:-)

Full disclosure: My friends own it!!

4 Hands Brewery is this really NEAT new craft brewery (micro brewery) on Seventh and Hickory. (6 blocks down 7th street from Busch stadium) It is in a renovated old building with a tasting room (bar) that has a lot of neat touches in it. You can see the brewing operation from the room. The tasting room is fairly small, but they also have some outside seating. There is some food available, but not a huge menu yet. Their brews are very unique, but you can also get wine, soda, etc.

They are getting a lot of great reviews. Just wanted to put in a plug if anyone is looking for something different and unique to try!

I''d post pics but I just realized we left the laptop in the car. And I''m so not getting up off this couch.

Great food, great fun. Tomorrow''s more of the same.

Fine. No really - it's fine. I mean, just because SOME of us aren't fortunate enough to be able to be there, and just because we're alone at home on a Friday night looking for SOMETHING shiny to entertain us... No, don't worry about us. We wouldn't want you to put yourselves out on our behalf.

Really. Carry on. Sorry to have bothered you.

I still can't believe Aubrie had never had toasted ravioli before. And I'm sad that I don't have a picture of the face she made.

Aw, man, I'm bummed I missed that. Although from Moo's description, my waistline is probably glad I only had hospital vending machine crackers and cookies for dinner!

Can't wait to see everyone tomorrow!

Have fun today, everyone! I will be at work, but Aubrie has my cell number if there are any problems with the reservations.

See you at brunch! Which is at 930 on Sunday, does that sound ok?

Good day thus far. Pedis in the morning, lunch in the park, and then stood in line for way too long to go to the top of the Arch. I went, I saw, I''m good. Don''t feel the need to ever go back up in there again.

We warned her, Jessica. Don't worry about it.

Though, I regret not being in the little round bubble cars with the non-St. Louisans to say ....

"Huh. The cars never sounded like this before..."

LOL!

ETA: Wish we could have joined the group for more stuff. Maybe next time?

So nice to meet you Chili. You're a sweetie. And you're totally going to have to give me a holler when you're in my neighborhood.

Couple food pics from tonight.

Me and SadMad both got gyros

The most amazing hummus I've ever tasted.

My new addiction. Toasted Ravioli. OMG y'all!

Moo and SadMad dancing. I caught her mid-swirl.


There's more pics but I have to get everyone's permission first.

Home safe and exhausted.

Thank you everyone for coming up/down/over to St. Louis for this g2g. So great to meet everyone and put faces to the names.

Thank you to JessicaFL for helping to coordinate venues and reservations. You''re a sweetheart.

Thank you SadMad for helping with pedi shenanigans. That was a blast even though Monk insists otherwise.

Pippa, you''re gonna have to post shoe pics so I can see what I missed.

My kids missed me. They came tearing out of Nana''s house screaming and laughing. We danced in the yard together. I think that''s a sign I need to stay home for a while now.

Maybe in a few months I''ll work up the courage to arrange a Nashville g2g. Maybe.

Hope everyone is home safe and well.

Maybe it's a sign you need to go away more often. Sounds like they had a good time with Nana.

Glad you're home safe and sound.

Aubrie...you do a Nashville g2g, and I'll be there! Loved meeting you and your DH!

And if anyone is ever worried about going to a g2g...I say, do it! It was so much fun putting faces to names and spending time with kindred spirits!

And thanks Aubrie, for documenting it all...the food, the pedi, the "outfit", the fun!

The screaming at Busch Stadium on Saturday night was probably lower-pitched quieter than at Jive and Wail.

Fortunately, we had enough time before the screaming started to get to know some folks, and the pianists were great entertainment - some old favorites for us and some new music to us.

W, a consummate introvert, actually talked to people! And laughed, too. She actually did some networking.

Many, many thanks to JessicaFL127 for getting this going, and to Aubrie84 for nudging things along when JessicaFL127 wasn't around.

The Arch park is a great place for a picnic. Just sayin'....

Man, I haven't chatted anybody up since 1966.

I do have this idea that if I talk to musicians, I'll be able to find some musical talent in myself, though.
