Thanksgiving Day brunch + optional Como Park walk

Big storms are threatening long-distance travel. Have you decided to stay put? There might be a huge wait (no reservations), so eat a little something at home and get there early. (They close at 2 pm.) This is the Key's at Lexington and Larpenteur. Whoever gets there first, put name down as Transplants Meetup. Please RSVP by Wed eve so that we have a count. Casual dress. If you plan to walk around Como Lake afterward, bring lots of extra layers, hat, scarf, gloves/mittens, and good warm boots.

      Melanie, I hope to see you at another event and chat. Thanks for dropping by for a while. I'm glad you were proactive and found us (I don't have a smartphone, and no one else had thought to check the group's messages.)

    A wonderful, congenial group of folks. Thanks for being there. I enjoyed meeting and talking (and walking) with you. We stumbled upon a Lakota ceremony at the Como Park Pavilion (in conjunction with the community dinner being held there.) Happy Thanksgiving!

    [Reference for next year: Key's started serving turkey dinners at 10:30 am. Yes, it was real fresh turkey, not turkey loaf. Pie was pleasantly spicy.]

    My son and i may swing by since we live about a block from keys but wont stay too long :-) hope thats ok

      Sounds fine. I'm guessing the restaurant will be busy and every seat a potential dollar-sign, so you should probably plan on purchasing a little something for "table rent."

    A wild guess at when we'll be done eating would be noon. Do you want to just show up at Key's around 11:30 or so to connect with the group? Alternatively, you could e-mail to me a cellphone number and someone with a reliable cellphone (that would not be me) could call and let you know when brunch was just about over (or if you are a distance away, perhaps when our food arrives at the table.)

      I should have posted this as a reply, as it was to respond to Michael O who said "I can't make brunch in time but would like to join you for the walk."

    I can stop by around 10 until 11.30, not sure if Someone will be there at that time. Please let me know, otherwise I''ll have to ask for a rain check.
