Come for food and conversation

I am going to try again to see if enough of us can get together for some food and conversation. Raymond's in Montclair, NJ is very reasonably priced and a nice spot to talk together. As we get closer to the event I will be offering some suggestions for our evening together. I hope you can make it! Dutch treat!

    Had a great evening and found our conversation very good. I am sorry we missed Chris. As I said, it would be good to get more people to join us since we have 20 folks signed up. I will try to experiment with venues to see if a more convenient place for more people is not possible. Also, I was wondering if we wanted to have a bit more structure sometimes, like a suggested reading before we arrive or even if we get more people, having a speaker once in awhile. At the same time, you may prefer this low key, informal approach as well. let me know what you think. I will schedule another meetup soon for sometime next month or so. It was wonderful meeting you!

      I am stuck in Manhattan until at least 6pm on Saturdays. Could possibly make it to NJ by 7pm.

      Hi Kamil. What would be a good day and time for you? Also, maybe we can into NYC as well. What would be a good place near you?

    Hi Everyone! Unfortunately, I cannot attend since I will be out of town. Also, I realized that this group is based in NJ even though I live in NYC. So I genuinely would like to attend every meeting but I am thinking my attendance may be spotty due to the commute - just wanted to let you know.

      Alicia Montclair is an easy and relatively short commute from NYC. You just take the 66 or the 33 DeCamp bus.

      Thanks Wendy for the directions. I am currently in Michigan because I had to leave on short notice - of all places during this frigid weather - and I am not returning till next week. Even so, it is very beautiful up here. I will endeavor to make our next meeting. Thanks so much!

    We can start at Raymond's and if it becomes too noisy, we can walk to my office, which is right by Raymond's. See you on the 11th.

    I think this will be good with good food and an interesting setting. Raymond's is noisy, so come I will try to be there with a loud voice!

      Hi Sally, so glad you can be there. You mentioned that Raymond's can be noisy. Would you suggest another place? Sounds like you know Montclair.

      No, I don't know much of Montclair, but have been to Raymond's 3 times for the food, blueberry pie, and the ambiance.

    I live in Montclair and yes Raymond's can be noisy. I will have to think about another place that is quieter and about the same price to meet. Will get back to you.

      Thanks Wendy. I don't know much about Montclair but I love the little art museum there, especially the Inness paintings. Let me know if you have another suggestion.
