Let's get together for dinner and discussion about how to make this travel meetup be successful.
We have a private room reserved for 7pm at Marco Polo in East Hartford. The restaurant is easy to get to (very close to Rt 84) and the food is always good. They have a variety of choices ranging from appetizers to sandwiches to entrees. Marco Polo has been very accomodating so far, allowing us to order off the menu (most places wanted us to have a fixed banquet menu).
Since it's a private room, we'll have the opportunity to mix and mingle, get to know others interested in travel and start to talk about how to plan our first trip. I will have a few assignments for you while you are there that'll help us get started on the right foot.
I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone!
