Valentine's Day social and potluck at Kathryn's. There will be a prize for the funniest date story, so think through your memories and pull out a good one! I have a grill available. Please list what you are bringing.  I can make pineapple upside down martini that people seem to like.

    We will. We plan to have some meetups in Blue Mounds once we get settled in and have an opportunity. It is really beautiful out there. Will have a house warming party.

    Wishing you loads of luck. Hope you are not moving too far away. Valentine's meet up at your home was great. Keep in touch!

    It looks like this will be the last meetup at my house in Fitchburg. I will be posting it for sale in about a week. If anyone is still missing anything, please let me know. I found some bags, including a really creative one, and a white flower bowl. Of course, you will still be able to get ahold of me, but we are starting to pack things up. Wish me luck! :)

    Still laughing at all the great stories. "Picked Up in Turkey," "Got Lucky," etc. Hilarious and sweet and creepy stories. What a creative range. I'm sure we collectively have so many more to share. Such a great idea to do this. We should repeat it; don't have to wait until next Valentine's Day.

    Thanks again for a great night, everyone!

    Great party, moving from room to room with delicious food and beverages in the kitchen to story telling on the lower level to piano music (thanks, Matthew) and conversation by a fire in the living room. Thank you for opening your home to us, Kathryn.

    I am a big fan of grilled pineapple. Will you have enough or should I bring more? I will proably bring something chocolate since it is VD and all.

    1 · February 10, 2014

    • Kathryn

      It is a martini, so I don't have grilled pineapple. That would be yummy, though.

      February 10, 2014

    • Shere-Ling

      I had eaten more pineapples than I should tonight. It was so good!!! Thanks.

  • Kathryn

    I will email "yes" responders the address/directions again later this morning or early afternoon. We are at 30 guests thus far. Please have your ability to receive emails from Meetup turned on, at least just for today, so you can get this. I don't post it online as I found it then is placed on the internet...so will send via Meetup only message

    February 14, 2014

  • Kathryn

    Please note that I changed the start time yo 6 pm. Figured that would be easier with people working.

    I feel bad to not invite my husband Jeff Kraus-Yao. Sorry if this group is for singles only! Waiting for his reply. As soon as I know his intention I will update.

    February 13, 2014

      Thanks! Jeff is not social-able, so please take initiative to converse with him. :-)

    Just a reminder: I am allergic to onions so need to know if something has it.

    Anything else specific that is needed? Else, I will bring what I think is best. :)

    I see the party goes until 8 pm on the 15th so we'll need lots of vodka! ;-) I'll bring your gloves, too.

    February 9, 2014

    • Kathryn

      So funny, Sheri. Love it! Was trying to do it from my phone on my lunch break and it was a little uncooperative. Couldn't fix it until I was on a "real" computer. :) Thanks for offering to bring the vodka...and my gloves. I miss them. :) So glad you are coming!
