    Given the original tepid response in mid-summer to the earlier incarnation of this Meetup, I am floored by its large (150-person) ultimate attendance! Congratulations to those who made it happen.

    How is the food situation? Is there anything else needed? Any drinks other than wines possibly?

      If I bring korozott with crackers, would that be okay?

If it is full, continue to the stop sign, turn left and there is a City parking lot on the left. There is also parking available on your right as soon as you turn onto Jackson St. And lots of "on street" parking. My cell is[masked] (Karen) if you have any questions!! See you all soon!

    For tomorrow night - Latest update on ticket sales looks like we may have almost 130 attendees tomorrow night!! YIKES!! I'm pretty sure we will have enough food... =:o.
    Anyway, here are directions: I-20 Exit 11 (Bremen). Turn north at the bottom of the exit ramp (right if you are coming from ATL, left if you are coming from AL). Turn right at light for US27 Business (about 1/4 mile from Interstate, Captain D's on corner). Stay on US27Bus, cross US78 (the first light you come to), cross a double set of RR tracks, go about a block and cross another set of RR tracks. (continued below)

    Yikes!! Looks like we may have as many as 130 people!!! I think we are OK on most dishes. We may need more gulyas and chicken paprikash. And we will have water, tea and coffee available to drink. Remember...if you bring a dish that is equivalent to the ticket price, you get in free!!

    Anyone volunteering to make a dish (enough for 6 or more) will be given up to two tickets to the event. If you would like to do this, please send me your name and what dish you will prepare. Thank you!

      It would be great if you could both make it!! We are over 80 confirmed and still a week to go! I will send an email by Sunday evening to all volunteers bringing food with a complete list of dishes and updated attendee count. Thank you!!

      Sounds like a plan.

    I strongly encourage this meetup's organizers to promptly review a short essay on Hungarian music germane to the topic at hand, which I have just published at http://www.meetup.com/atlantahungarian/messages/boards/thread/6030641/20#[masked]

    We have: csirke paprikas, bread, gulyas and plum dumplings committed. We would like to have more Hungarian dishes from our cookbook: lecso, stuffed cabbage, potato casserole, noodle casserole, various soups and, of course, desserts!! If you cannot attend, but would like to send a dish, we can offer a small refund to help offset the cost! Please don't make ME try my hand at Hungarian cooking!! :)

      A couple of years ago I commissioned AHMG's Maria Nagy, a professional baker, to make cookies for the annual children's Xmas party. I simply specified a payment and let her decide how many cookies she would make, on the theory that such a price schedule made business sense for potential future commerce. If you have a limited budget, perhaps she can advise what sort of desserts are the most economical. I cannot speak for her, but I'd bet she could beat the prices charged for the fresh mail-order goods sold online at Andre's Hungarian Strudels and Pastries via http://www.andresbake...­ And if one day you win the lottery, consider asking her about the wonderful, but highly labor-intensive Dobos torte! I nostagically sang its praises in the AHMG thread at http://www.meetup.com...­

      FYI: Ohio's Lorain is the most (4.1%, 2010 census) Hungarian county in the US, and (was?) home to an annual Hungarian Day, whose 2010 edition was reviewed at http://ohiofestivals....­ , where you can examine photos of the food as well as the menu with prices.

      The old Hungarian kingdom included a colorful mix of linguistic, national and religious groups, especially before the linguistic "Magyarization"­ campaign of the late 19th century. And there were significant exchanges even beyond the kingdom's borders - which is why Hungarian cuisine features dishes with names like "Wiener schnitzel" and "Linzer torte"!

    As I write this, the text in the event abstract above is misleading when it states "...you can register at www.hungarytasting.com" because no Web server answers at that address. Happily, however, the alternate address given in the graphic, viz. www.hungarytasting.eventbrite.com does indeed respond via http.

      Thank you for catching this typo on my part! Will you be there, Ron?

    Karen, My wife and i are still planning to bring csirke paprikas and a loaf of fresh home made bread for the event. We plan to arrive around 5:00PM. It would be helpful if there would be a sterno warmer, but if we can warm up the paprikas in the kitchen it should be OK.

    Background on the Budapest Cemetery from Karen Higgins:

    In the mid-1890's a group of Hungarians left Pennsylvania to start a grape-growing, wine-making venture in Haralson County. They named their village Budapest in honor of their country's Capital. Other groups came (mainly Slovakians) and started a village they named Nitra. Both villages thrived until Georgia passed it's Prohibition Act in 1907. Many residents returned north but a few remained. Unfortunately, very little remains of the villages today. The Budapest Cemetery is located about 1 mile south of the original Budapest Village. A group of volunteers convenes once a year to maintain and clean-up the Cemetery. Efforts are underway to replace the missing Historic Marker that describes the Cemetery. Haralson County Historical Society recently received a grant for $2000 to aid in this effort. There is much more work that needs to be done.
