Christmas Dinner at Picco Lino

After our cool (or c.c..c...cold, depending on the weather) stroll on Candy Cane Lane, we'll be getting together for an Italian Christmas Dinner at the neighbourhood Italian Bistro - Picco Lino. Prices are reasonable, and the food is among the best in the city.

Everyone is welcome to join us for Christmas Dinner, whether you come to the Stroll Along Candy Cane Lane (see previous event) or not.

This restaurant is in the same strip mall as the IGA and the Royal Bank, where we will be gathering and parking for the Candy Cane Lane Stroll. It's in the northeast corner of the mall, facing across toward the bank.

Picco Lino is a busy restaurant, even on weeknights, especially at Holiday time, so I will have to make a reservation well in advance.This is a popular event, and I want everyone who wants to come to be able to join us. For those reasons, I will be applying the following policies:

• A deposit will be required to reserve your space at the restaurant.

• Amount: $5.00 December 4-12

• Reservations close after December 12

• Payable to me (Bob) at any Meetup - I'll be at all of them

• Deposit funds will go toward your tip at the restaurant

• You can (and are encouraged to) bring one guest - same deposit policies apply

If you will not be coming, please change your RSVP to "No" so someone on the wating list can get in. The restaurant will not have room for anyone who has not paid the deposit by the time I call them with the final count, shortly after December 12.

These two events are both sponsored jointly by the Fit & Active 50 + or -, Edmonton Coffee, and Edmonton Hiking/Walking Meetup groups. If you belong to more than one of these groups, please RSVP only through one of them, so I get an accurate overall count. Thanks..

Merry Christmas!

    The Candy Cane walk was good but I had to give up walking. The ice slowed me down too much. So I accepted a ride with David and his wife. David had grown up in this area and knew it like the back of his hand. To turn around and do the Candy Cane Lane from the other direction he did a "surprise" donut in the middle of the street. His wife said that set us back 10 years. I said, "Yes, I feel 10 years younger." That was my highlight of the evening. Everyone was wonderful. I got to know two new people - Donna, 50+ walking group, and Carol, walking group. Everyone was lots of fun and the atmosphere and food were great too. Susan, Dale, Brenda, and Lyn it was nice to see you again. Bob, thank you so much for organizing everything. Bless you. Bernice

    Hey Bob I won't be able to get you the money before the dinner date. So I am going to change my RSVP. I was looking forward to it but I understand the rules. Hope you all have a great time. Merry Christmas to everyone.

      Hi Namrata, I sent you a Meetup email about this. We can work something out so you can come, if you still want to.

      Hi Bernice, you're in now. I had cancellations in other groups, so I raised the limit for this one.

    To those who have RSVPed “Yes” on Meetup for the Christmas Dinner at Picco Lino on Wednesday December 18, and have not yet paid your deposit to reserve your seat(s) at dinner.

    If your plans have changed, please change your RSVP to “No”, so that someone on the waiting list can get in.

    Please note that your RSVP is not sufficient to reserve your space at this event. To reserve your spot, you must pay the deposit as specified in the Meetup posting. As of December 4, the deposit is now $5.00 per person, payable to me at any Meetup.

    Reservations close on December 12, and if your deposit is not received by then, I will delete your RSVP and offer your space to someone on the waiting list.

    I look forward to enjoying the Candy Cane Lane walk and/or Christmas dinner at Picco Lino with you on December 18. Everyone is welcome for the walk at 6 pm, no fees, whether you're coming to dinner or not; please bring a non-perishable item for the Food Bank.

    I just got hired to manage a new tea shop in Bonnie (GAK) Doon Mall. As December is one of the busiest months for retail, to get away before 9:30 pm will be a miracle. I so wish I could join you. If you're in the mood for tea though, our shop is called TEA DESIRE, based out of BC, run by a European couple. It's absolutely gorgeous! yes, yes, I know we all love coffee, but wait til you try our teas! And the giftware OMG! Anyway, we're going to try to open Tuesday, so if any of you are in the mall (David's Tea got us kicked out of Southgate), do stop by. Love to see you...:)
