    It was a good concert. It is just hard to find each other in a sea of strangers

    Awww. It looks like (from reading some of the comments) that this turned out bad with people not finding each pther and whatnot. :-/ Sorry, guys. I hope that everyone else who did not post on her ended up finding the group. I've NEVER bailed from a meetup that I organized and I assured that I would not have if I really could not help it. If ya come to a meetup that I organize/host, rest assured that it is run smoothly and you'd enjoy your time with me and the group. O:-) Don't let this deter you from coming to one of my meetups. ;-) I have references! Hehe. Forgive my sense of humor. It's the end of an awful day and I must try to be my cheerful self again. See ya at another meetup!

    I can't find anyone either.

    • Lynnsey B.

      Natasha, where are you? I will meet up with you in a few.

      March 3, 2013

  • Lynnsey B.

    Natasha & Claire, let's arrange a place for us to meet. I should be there in about 10 minutes. Where are you ladies?

    March 3, 2013

  • Claire C.

    It's cold. Dress warm!
    Where is everyone?

    March 3, 2013

    • Lynnsey B.

      Hi Claire! I'm on my way there now and trying to find out the same thing! :)

      March 3, 2013

  • Lynnsey B.

    Hi, I will be joining everyone a little later tonight. Is there a designated meeting spot after you all finish dinner?

    March 3, 2013

  • Dan

    I'll be at the concert, but I'll be arriving late with other people. I'm not sure if I'll meet the rest of the group. Stay warm & enjoy the show. :)

    March 3, 2013

  • Janet

    Oh, and I will cancel by 5 if nobody steps up to become the event host because... Meetups with no host-- not an ideal thing. :-/

    March 3, 2013

    • Janet

      Maria, it might behoove you to have the group meet at a place that is closer to the concert-- if you really want o meet someplace to eat first. That would be easier for everyone. That's why I had chosen Panino's as a place to meet at first. Again, up to you. Just an idea.

      March 3, 2013

    • Maria

      Janet...Hi...thanks for all ur wonderful suggestions...I did make other plans already...I am still going with friends to the concert but I made plans to meet at the New Ale House..im sorry...so if anyone wants an imprompt place to meet,before than all are welcome...we r meeting,there at 6pm...

      March 3, 2013

  • Claire C.

    I am not sure if it is too late but that location is right next to Restaurant 390 in Bank of America's building. There has been several meetups there. They should be used to that crowd. The question is do we need a reservation?
    I can only make it after mass at 7-7:30 PM.

    March 3, 2013

    • Janet

      OH, yah. Most places in downtown are closed on Sundays. :-/ That's why it was so hard to find a place back when I chose a pre-meeting spot. Terrace 390 would be find if they are open.

      March 3, 2013

    • Janet

      Yep. Closed on Sundays. I just checked. That sucks.

      March 3, 2013

  • Natasha M.

    Can someone let me know if we have cancelled? I'm going anyway, even if we have cancelled so if some people are still going could you let me know where we are meeting. Also can I bring my dog since it's going to be outdoors?

    March 3, 2013

    • Natasha M.

      I live down the street from the new Ale House and I've been wanting to go there since it opened, so I'd love to meet anyone there.

      March 3, 2013

    • Janet

      Hey, Natasha, see my comment? ;-) Well, I made Maria event host. Sorry, I noticed that she offered after I posted this comment. Have fun!

      March 3, 2013

  • Janet

    Hey, everyone! Maria is stepping in and is the event host for me. :-D So, feel free to ask her any questions and be aware of any changes she might have to make with the meetup. ;-) Keep warm (it's supposed to be 45 degrees tonight). Have fun out there. I am so grateful to her and to everyone understanding of my not being able to make it and for Maria stepping in.

    I will stay indoots too, having a cold and need to be careful. Have fun!

    March 3, 2013

    • Janet

      Nice of ya to let me know, Maria. Thanks.

      March 3, 2013

    • Janet

      And I hope ya get better. The weather won't be like this for very long so it will be nice for ya to enjoy the warm temps when they come back!

      March 3, 2013

  • Janet

    Hey, everyone! Please respond to this as soon as you can-- if you can.... I woke up today not feeling well enough for a social event so I will have to cancel. Although it is due to something out of my control, I feel so bad having to cancel on you and on my good friend who invited me to this in the first place. So, instead of cancelling, would anyone be willing to host for me? I'll keep an eye on this comment Wall all day for responses! Sorry about this! :-/

    Went out last night and I was freezing! I think I'm going to pass on the concert and stay warm indoors. Have fun!!

      Nice of ya to let me know, Ann. Thanks

    Since we're meeting at a restaurant, I'd especially appreciate the courtesy (more so than before) of giving me a heads up if you end up not making it on time (at 5pm) or not at all. This would also be a courtesy to the owner and employees of the restaurant as well. I provided my # to call or text (don't worry, I don't save anyone's #'s unless they ask me to). This IS Orlando after all, so I totally understand unexpected things happening. I've been to downtown Orlando quite a few times but just to go to a particular venue for an event and go right back home after I'm done there; never really perused the area before. See ya there! FYI: I might have to change the meetup time but it would just be for slightly and I'd do so way in advance. ;-)

      I do not intend to make it to dinner, but I will be at the concert, and I will have some other folks tagging along with me.

      March 2, 2013

    • Janet

      Oops. You must have missed the changes to this meetup and the e-mail that was sent out to notify people of changes. I also posted it on this Wall in the event that certain people are not subscribed to e-mails. You should see it below. ;-) Check out the new meetup location (it's no longer at the restaurant). Thanks for the heads up though! :-) See ya and the other buds there.

    The concert is right across from the courthouse! Why didn't the website just say that?! Oh, well. Let's make it less complicated for all & have one meeting spot & TRY to meet in front of the courthouse Let's just find parking wherever we can (I tried the best I could with all the parking info) and then meet up at 5:30 in front of the courthouse. If all goes well (I"ll leave Deltona extra early), I might make it a bit earlier than that. I"ll be holding a red balloon in hopes that it would help ya find me (it worked before). We'll wait there for late-comers for 10 minutes or so. There might be street closures. Not even my friend could tell me if there indeed will be or if they have done that. :-/ If you come across anything, feel free to call or text me. But if I am driving, I won't text so try calling me if it's late afternoon.
    I'm trying my best to help you. ;-) But with events like this, we must expect the unexpected. Let's just hope for the best and have fun together! :-)

    Can any of you suggest a good meeting spot?! I'm rackin'my brain trying to come up with one. I'd appreciate all suggestions and tips for this. I'd hate to miss any of ya -- and I'd especially hate for any of you to not find me! What do you all think about the ideas I have (below)? Due to the scope of this event (and there's no exact address of where this event is being held), this is a concern for me.

    February 14, 2013

  • Janet

    I am willing to host! BUT if anyone can suggest a meeting spot that would be great. As I stated above, and is what the website states, the location of the concert is Downtown Orlando - Orange Ave. & Livingston Street. Maybe we can meet at Citrus Restaurant or Bento Cafe or Cafe Annie and then head to the location of the concert there. A friend and I have been planning to go here and then I decided to suggest this a meetup. She wants to go there late though, which is not a great idea, especially because it gets so packed there quickly.
