Ever meet?

I often wonder if any of you actually meet and cook for each other? When I read some of the delicious sounding meals I wish I could actually enjoy them. I know....make them myself

I think we all should meet in New Orleans next year for Mardi Gras or Jazz Fest..Advertisers should take everyone out to dinner 1 nite. Its about 1 year away..So start booking flights and hotels....See ya then!

Great idea, Uncle Bob! I've never been to New Orleans and would love to go just to eat may way around it!

I've only met three DC posters, elaine. Raine and Jim Minion are also competitive BBQ'ers, and I met them on the BBQ circuit.

Andy M. and his SO, Suzanne, came to a BBQ contest where I was competing and looked me up during a horrible rain storm.

I'd love to meet other DC'ers some day.

My fantasy is that we meet in Las Vegas good priced flights and inexpensive hotel packages.Wow how fun to actually meet face to face and so much to talk about.I actually brought it up when the foodtv forum was still alive but got no response.But I think if it was planned well in advance alot of us could actually go.
To me Mari Gras etc would be to busy we would never go anywhere we would be too busy seeing each other.

OK, I'd like to vote for meeting in Disneyworld. That way if we hate each other we can at least go on rides and scream our guts out. LOL!

I've met tancowgirl, and Poutine. I feel like I know most of you so well though that if we ever did meet there would be squeals of glee and much wine and giggling.

I know Steve A, and Vagriller, both post here every now and again.

I am all up for a large scale meet and eat! Rides would be awesome, butthat is a tough pic between Mardi gras or Disney(though I liked islands of Adventure better).

I have to look up Buckytom when I am in the City next, and I will be moving to Hawaii in September, and would love to meet Ironchef and Wassabi!

If ever anything were to materialize out of it, I work for Landmark/Intercontinental hotels, and could get a great deal on a block of rooms, seriously.

Vegas sounds great to me. Heh. I know my way around pretty well, and I could certainly recommend places to eat and/or party that would suit most peoples' needs. We are a pretty diverse group with at least one thing in common.

OH... I have met jkath. Ask HER where the DC convention should be held .

And, Alix... there are a few rides and other diversions in Vegas... in case we don't get along (then, again, I could just go home... heh)

You can't seriously believe that all of our DCer's from other countries could possibly car pool to Nevada, Louisiana, California or Florida. No, NO ..... we must pack our American bags and go visit them!

Hawaii would be a long trip from the East Coast and the other countries would be a longer trip from the west coast.

From ca. it was a 13 hour trip to Japan and then the next day a few hours to Soul Korea and then the next day a 12 hour train ride (powered by coal and all the windows open..I was a mess) and then a 3 hour pick up truck ride to travel 50 miles on their roads..and when we arrived they wanted to throw a Welcome aboard party for us...No way!!! This was after taking 30 days from Jacksonville N>A>S> n Florida and inc. 2 weeks Survival Training (again) in the Mohave Dessert for Paul.

Sorry..I got off subject ...again. Almost every post I can come up with an experience.
