    Pat's sounds good to me.

    Just to get this straight, we are talking about having lunch at Pat's prior to next month's meeting, but still having the meeting at the Grind? Changing the meeting place can't really be done so easily, as our posters (and this website) say the Grind and people who weren't informed would be showing up there. Seems to me that Pat's is kind of noisy and not too private, although the back room behind the bar is reservable for $ and that might be okay for meetings if we are thinking about a bigger space for the future. If we get 25 people next meeting I think we will have to talk about a bigger space!

    • Doug B.

      I think we're just talking about a pre-meeting lunch. I agree about a bigger space for the mtgs. though.

    Hi, Lynn, We would like to join you for the pizza lunch prior to the next meeting. Which pizzeria will we be meeting at and at what time?

    April 7, 2014

    • Nancy G.

      Renee, once everybody hashes this out I'll revise the meetup so everybody will know. Lynn, as social organizer, what is your decision?

      April 7, 2014

  • Diane G.

    Pat's Pizza has a side room that we could get. Abbie, you are too funny!

    April 7, 2014

  • Abbie M.

    Doug does a fantastic job of moderating! Pizza sounds great. May 3, right? Do you think we might need a bigger hall, given the topic? But then again, given the topic, maybe sitting on each other's laps would be appropriate. (LOL)

  • Lynn H.

    Hey everybody,
    Thanks for coming to Shinbashi! It was fun....let's do it again. Doug suggests pizza next time. Sounds good to me. Great to see everyone at the meeting too, and kudos to Doug for another great job at the difficult task of managing to create a sense of decorum among our enthusiastic group!

    3 · April 7, 2014

  • Nancy G.

    Having a discussion among 25 people has its challenges. Doug deserves a lot of credit for managing to moderate us!

    2 · April 5, 2014

    • Doug B.

      Thanks Nancy.

      April 5, 2014

    • Diane G.

      At least he got to put his two cents worth in there. Thanks Doug, that is a lot of work.

    I will have to miss the meeting today. Looking forward to meeting you all next time.

    April 5, 2014

    • Doug B.

      Next time Sonja.

    Really enjoyable afternoon with lunch at Shinbashhi and a great turnout at the Maine Grind. Always glad to meet new people and chat with old friends.

    April 5, 2014

  • Laurie Q.

    Matt and I are going to have to miss this meeting. Our greyhound was attacked by an unleashed dog on Thursday, and while he is on the mend, neither of his parents have gotten much sleep!

    April 5, 2014

    • Diane G.

      Wow! Laurie I am so sorry to hear that. Hope he recovers well. Were you able to identify the owners of the attack dog? Hope to see you next time.

      April 5, 2014

  • Nikki

    We (myself, husband and our 1 year old) plan to meet you at Shinbashi.

    2 · April 4, 2014

    • Nancy G.

      Great, Nikki. See you there.

      April 4, 2014

  • Laurie Q.

    Hi Lynn,
    We won't be able to make lunch, but will be at the regular meeting. Sorry to miss Shinbashi, but Matt has a work commitment.

    April 3, 2014

    • Lynn H.

      Hi Laurie, We'll miss you at lunch...maybe next tim. Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting! - Lynn

    I'll be at Shinbashi at 1! Looking forward to it!

    1 · April 2, 2014

    • Nancy G.

      Glad you can come, Jennifer.

  • Alice MacDonald L.

    I'll be at Shinbashi at 1 PM - I've never been there, but I'm looking forward to trying it and have a social time with the group.

    1 · April 2, 2014

    • Diane G.

      Glad you can make it Alice!

  • Gabrielle G.

    I've made a last minute decision to attend my 45th High School Reunion this weekend, so I won't be able to be there after all. You all have fun!

    April 1, 2014

  • Lynn H.

    Hi everybody, Please do RSVP here or at [masked] if you can come to Shinbashi. I need a ballpark figure to make a reservation. Thanks and I hope you'll join us for lunch- 1:00.
    xiè xie !

    April 2, 2014

  • Nancy G.

    Lynn, okay, count me in. Shinbashi at 1 pm?

    April 1, 2014

  • Diane G.

    I'll be there. Around 1:00 right?

    1 · April 1, 2014

  • Doug B.

    I'll come Lynn but probably be running a bit late so don't wait for me to order.

    April 1, 2014

  • Lynn H.

    Hi everyone, Since lots of folks are interested in coming (yea!!), we decided on Shinbashi. It has large tables and I can make a reservation for our own little room. Prices are reasonable and they have excellent Chinese and Japanese cuisine. So, please come and RSVP here so I'll know how many seats to reserve. See you Sat.! - Lynn

    1 · April 1, 2014

  • Nancy G.

    When you decide on the restaurant, I will include the info in the email I send out for the meeting (separate list which includes people not on meetup). At this point I am not sure if I will be able to come, but I really want to!

    April 1, 2014

  • Doug B.

    No real preference for me.

    March 31, 2014

  • Diane G.

    Oh, I didn't see this Lynn. I like Shinbashi too! They do have some nice large tables.

    March 31, 2014

  • Jennifer L

    I wouldn't mind coming early. It will be a bit of a drive for me, so it would just mean I'd have a longer rest between hikes. Do you guys like the Green Tea? (if it is still there, been awhile since I've been to Ellsworth)

    March 31, 2014

    • Jennifer L

      I think so. I know they opened up a second location in Bangor, and I haven't gone Ellsworth way to see if they kept the original place going.

      March 31, 2014

    • Diane G.

      We could also try Finn's. That time of day they wouldn't be too busy. I don't think Green Tea is there anymore.

      March 31, 2014

  • Lynn H.

    No more Green Tea, but they did open Shinbashi. They have big tables which could fit a group. When we decide where, I can make a reservation so the place will be ready for a crowd.

    March 31, 2014

  • Gabrielle G.

    I'm game. The Mex would be the easiest.

    March 31, 2014

  • Diane G.

    I'd be up for it. Anyone else? Where will we meet?

    March 31, 2014

  • Lynn H.

    Anyone interested in meeting for a late lunch before our mtg. this Sat? Say about 1pm? I can't go out afterwards this Sat. Sorry if this is a dupicate post, I can't tell if it's working. - Lynn
