    Was kind of expensive for the amount of food and drink received....

      I agree!

    Despite wearing a Panama Hat it was near impossible to connect with new members... Sorry! I strongly suggest attending one of our Wine Room or New Members events to meet me and that will make it much easier to find each other at large events like this one...

    At Entrance at Panera Bread on Eola & Robinson St

    February 23, 2013

  • David

    Ok, we will have to meet at the entrance to the event area... I am on the east side...

    February 23, 2013

  • David

    I will be at the small park area on the South East side of Lake Eola before noon... I know it's the opposite end to Robertson and Roslind Ave... But it is shady :) has blue tables and chairs also know on the map as "Nomsa Breakfast Location" where the Farmers Market usually is located and close to Eola Wine Company... It's going to be a long day so this will probably be our "Base" I referred to earlier.
    Remember I will be wearing my Panama Jack Hat :)

    February 23, 2013

  • David

    Ok, to help you find me in the crowds, I will be an odd ball and wear a "Panama Jack Hat" and being 6'1" tall, this should hopefully make me stand out a little in the crowd... :)

    1 · February 23, 2013

  • David

    Ok, with such a large group amongst thousands of people, you are really going to have to text me to connect with us and look out for me and introduce yourself to me... As there are a few of you that I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet. Once there, I will identify a suitable "base" and everyone who wants to meetup can hang around the base area and the group or groups can pass the "base" every hour or so to meetup with lost souls or late comers...
    HAVE FUN!

    Hi! New to town and planning to go around 6...will anyone be there around then? Hoping to not be a lonely drinker.

    February 22, 2013

    • David

      Hard to say... Depends on our capacity for wine, food, fun and crowds... Could even be there till closing... :)

    Text me on arrival[masked] if you would like to wander around as a group... Otherwise, enjoy this event on your own or in small groups...
    A large group at this large event will be very difficult to keep together...
