    I have a recommendation for our lunch in October or some other time in the future. The place is called the MUSSEL AND BURGER BAR. It’s on Taylorsville Rd near the intersection with Six Mile Ln. It looks pretty fancy on the outside, mainly because it’s in a new office complex, but the burger prices are comparable to HomeRun or SmashBurger.
    Today, I had an Italian version of the basic bacon cheeseburger, except the meat was store ground Angus beef, the bacon was Prosciutto, the lettuce was arugula, and the cheese was Taleggio. It came with garlic aioli and a little jar of pickled peppers.
    I opted for regular fries. The burger and fries were $10.00. If I wanted to spice it up a little, I could have added foie gras to the burger and opted for fries fried in truffle oil – for a little more $$$. I talked to the manager and they can easily accommodate our group.

      You don't have to order it, John /Lindseye. (I wouldn't either.)

      If it's a burger bar, can I get cheeseburger shots?

    Confirming my arrival with the second part of the first chapter to Unbound -- around 2K words.

      (confirming arrival) sounds like you are using an airline

    • Kay C.

      Given how I drive, I do find myself often airborne.

  • Kay C.

    got some good feedback and read some *really* good fiction.

  • Kelly

    We woke up with two very sick toddlers this morning. I won't be able to make it. Hope to see everyone in October.

    September 21, 2013

    • Kay C.

      Ouch. Hope they get well.

    Terrible week. Mucho stressed. I cannot make it to the Owls in the AM; however, I'd still like to join for lunch, if it's ok. So sorry for the late notice on this, but I haven't been online.

    September 20, 2013

  • Dave

    Anyone with writing done ahead of time please send it to me so I can give it a better consideration. I'll send you what I'm working on now, too. Thanks.

    September 20, 2013

    • Kay C.

      What email address? I can send you mine after 12:30 AM.

  • Chris R.

    I have to back out -- last week before a big work project and I've got too much to do to get ready. I'll probably miss Oct. too, because we'll be away the third week. Have a couple great meetings and I'll hope to see you all in November.

    September 20, 2013

    • Chris R.

      Thanks Lena -- will miss all of you too!

      September 20, 2013

    • Amanda Hillard B.

      We'll miss you Chris! Can't wait until the next chapter!

      September 20, 2013

  • Navin

    Confirming... for October. Oh, how mightily Owlcules labored for my presence, but alas, I must miss this month since I'm in CO for a week. See you all in October, with writing.

  • Kelly

    I'll be there. I'm hoping to have writing, but my computer crashed on me right after the last meeting and I'm just now back up and running. I'll update regarding writing as soon as I have a better idea of what I'll have ready.

    September 17, 2013

    • Kay C.

      I remember the last time my computer crashed. I was so mad that I forgot to open the window first.

      1 · September 17, 2013

    • Lena

      I am sorry to hear your computer crashed. Were you in Pelevin's chatroom when it happened? Did you put on the helmet of horror?

      1 · September 18, 2013

  • Chad

    I’ll be there. No words. Words bad.

    2 · September 18, 2013

  • Greg B.

    Will be attending. Bringing about 2,500 words that by that time will be hopefully arranged in a manner that conveys meaning. I usually just carry words around in my pockets, which is where they are now, and then pull them all out and throw them on the floor or against the wall when it is time for a story. Whatever order they come out is my story. I just tell everyone it is stream of consciousness.

    September 17, 2013

    • Lena

      Throw against a wall and see if it sticks?

      September 18, 2013

  • Christy N.

    Friends - I have been asked by my boss at work to go to Boston this weekend for a conference, and to meet with some orthopedic surgeons. I am so sorry - I will be unable to attend this Saturday, September 21st. I will miss everyone!

    September 17, 2013

    • Kay C.

      Aww...

      September 17, 2013

    • Lena

      I can't believe you traded us for some Boston orthopedic surgeons! Can they even write?

      1 · September 18, 2013

  • Chris R.

    I'll be there -- bringing a chapter. Will add the count soon...

    1 · September 18, 2013

  • Matt

    Confirming. Word count TBD.

  • Kay C.

    Dang...missed the sign-up. Oh,well. Better luck next month.

    August 27, 2013

    • Mike W.

      And as Amanda predicted, Kay is in!!! (Amanda, can we talk about picking lottery numbers?)

      1 · September 16, 2013

    • Amanda Hillard B.

      I must confess that I was going to smuggle Kay in and hide him under the table.

      2 · September 17, 2013

  • Amanda Hillard B.

    I shall be here! With writing.. Of some length... :-)

    I'm completely bummed to say that I have to back out due to a family obligation. I hope I can see you all again in October!

    September 16, 2013

  • Jaime J.

    Looks like I'm gonna be out of town next week. I'll see you guys in October hopefully.

    September 15, 2013

  • Irene

    I am in.

    September 13, 2013

  • Dave

    I'll be dividing the groups up according to your experience with the group--going for balance. Anyone coming after 9:45 I'll divide on the fly, which I hope I don't have to do. 9:46 is late, and thank you ahead of time for donating $2 to the popcorn fund. Who's on board with following the new start time?

    7 · September 9, 2013

    • Lena

      Sounds like a good plan.

      September 12, 2013

    • Lindseye G.

      I'm on!

      September 13, 2013

  • Chris R.

    Mike's not coming? Bummer. Christy, can't wait to see your next installment. I'll have chapter 2.

    1 · August 25, 2013

    • Christy N.

      Sorry to be so slow to respond, Chris. I enjoyed your chapter one so much at the last meeting. I love the way you write.

      1 · September 7, 2013

  • Mike W.

    I would probably be bringing Chapters 3 and 4 of "Ghost." I will email it to anyone who would like to offer critique.

    August 25, 2013

  • Mike W.

    I will be working a UofL volleyball tournament on the 21st, but the Owls are invited to join us for Rice v. Bowling Green at 5:30 and UofL v. Virginia Tech at 7:30. Matches are at Cardinal Arena at Floyd and Brandeis on the northeast corner of the UofL campus.

    August 25, 2013

  • Dave

    We'll have lunch again at Wick's.

    August 25, 2013

  • Christy N.

    I will be bringing writing. See you then!
