GEM'S Brunch n Munch & Trip Updates

LOCATION CHANGE: DREAM CAFE, 2800 ROUTH, #170, DALLAS, TX (UPTOWN DALLAS) Visit www.thedreamcafe.com for more information and to view menu options

Hello GEMs. Well, it's that time again for a meeting of the minds, while endulging in great food & drinks. Since early Saturdays seem to work the best for the group, let us get together again for brunch at the Dream Cafe, in Uptown Dallas at 11am. You will love the ambience, and the food is great! They even offer Vegan options for those that are more health conscience. They maintain a crowd, so on-time arrival is highly recommended!

As you have noticed, a date & location has been chosen for the GEM's 2014 Summer Vacation. For those that are interested in attending, we will be traveling to Aruba, Friday, 8/1 - Tuesday, 8/5, and will be staying @ the Renaissance Resort & Casino. There will be a cap at 8 guests. GEM's exclusive pricing is $970pp based on double occupancy for flight/hotel. I apologize in advance if this does not work for your schedule. Stay tuned for more up-and-coming adventures.

Furthermore, I have tentatively placed another trip to Washington, D.C. for the 22nd Annual Jazz Festival, being held on Friday, 6/6 - Sunday, 6/8. This has not been set in stone, but will be confirmed based on the interest of the group. GEM's exclusive trip pricing will average $350pp for flight/hotel (based on Spirit's low airfare of $187 R/T), based on double occupancy, and $275pp for 4 occupants.

Agenda:







- New member meet/greet







- Recap from previous meeting







- Upcoming 2014 Trip to Aruba







- Tentative Trip to Washington, D.C.







- Next meetup suggestions (i.e. date/time)

      Hi Shaniqua, I usually don't work on Saturdays, but when being offered overtime, I'll be there! I usually get off by noon if I go in on Saturday, so anytime after that would be great. Thank you.

    I would just like to thank Shaniqua again for putting this meet up together. I made a vow this year to get out and enjoy all that life has to offer, including meeting new people and traveling. This meetup allows me to do both and I'm so excited. Everyone has such a wonderful spirit and I'm looking forward to our travels together!! (Corny, yes...but also very true!)

      Definitely looking forward to meeting you. I noticed you are bringing a guest...wonderful, because we are on the move. By the way I noticed you are interested in going to Mexico. I would love to travel back there. We can definitely make that happen. Possibly shoot for December considering we already have Aruba planned for August and D.C. planned for June. Hope you can make one of those. See you next Saturday
