Who wants to plan the next Fl lunch?

I'm thinking about if someone else wants to pick the eating place this time.  Somebody suggested doing it on a Sun.  How about Dec. 2nd or Dec. 9th??   I don't have to make all these decisions.....I don't want to be stealing somebody else's fun-of planning a lunch.    There's a few of the FL. heppers who are getting together for camping on Veteran's Day weekend, in Ocala.   I'm not going to be able to do that one, but I can do a lunch date on those dates I listed above, if somebody wants to plan it.  I can travel to anywhere in the Orlando-Brevard County area, but South FL is not a good location for me.  I can go up to Ocala, because then, I'd just drive on up to my parent's place in Lake City after we finished our lunch.  So, somebody.........speak up.......

Sorry I missed it.  I bet you guys had a good time and a delicious lunch.   I had been really looking forward to the lunch.  Oh well maybe next time.   And hasn't Veteran's day this year already passed ?  Seems when you were planning the lunch, they were going to go camping that weekend or the next.   Or are you talking about next year ?   As far as I can remember, the next Holiday will be Thanksgiving...  After Halloween of course.  .. LOL   anyway,   I hope you are doing well, and I am glad you guys had a good time.  I will see if I can come up with any ideas ..   for the next time.  But will definately have to make a point to go to Crossroads when we go over to Orlando next time to our timeshare.  We do not go again till 2009.  Next year, we probably will just hang around here. I am so glad I only have 6 shots to go..  I am so broke, I cannot pay attention.    All the co-pays have been using up my money I save for Christmas.     So will take a while to build that up again.

The camping trip is indeed on Veteran's Day weekend, November 11th.  There are about 25 hepper folks/familys planning on attending the event.  Some folks will be arriving eariler in the weekend, our big b'que is planned for Sunday afternoon, Nov. 11th.  I'll try to cut/paste the camp ground site, I believe there are still cabins, tent & RV sites available but not positive.  Some are just making it a day trip and it's not only Floridians that are attending, we have folks flying in from the west coast and also the frozen north!  Silver River (near Ocala): http://www.floridastateparks.org/silverriver/default.cfm; Sorry, I can't make a December luncheon .... to many holiday things going on.  Lyn

I don't have to make a plan or anything--somebody had said that they weren't able to make it to our last one (Oct.6) and wanted to have another one.  I believe Andiamo said something about having one when he would be in town (for the winter), so I thru those dates out there.  I don't have a lot on my plate for the holiday time as I really am not a "party" type of a gal.  The only time I was ever into parties was when I was able to be at them in an altered state.  I'm really not much on being in large crowds and having to be socializing with lots of people in a 'making small talk', big room, party-type of situation.  I guess, it's a 'social anxiety' type of thing.  I do fine sitting around a table of people during a meal like say, 10-15 people, but the mingling thing causes me to totally have an anxiety attack, so needless to say, I don't do Christmas parties. I spend that time visiting family, sending out Christmas cards and watching Christmas stories on T.V. or looking at Christmas lights/decorations, going to church..  I'm just a 'laid-back' very introverted person, I suppose.

I am in Melbourne, Brevard County- which is approximately 45 south of where we had our Dixie Crossroads lunch in Titusville.  It's 20 min. over the causeway from the beach on the east coast.  That's pretty detailed, huh?

Does anybody want to plan another lunch soon?  Maybe we could shoot for a March time frame??  Do any of you like Bar-be-q?  I do.  We have several of them here in  Brevard County.  But, if somebody over in Orlando wants to plan the next one, speak up!  I like Barbeque, Seafood, Chinese food and places like Applebees, or a Steak and Ale.   The only places that I care to eat at is Mexican or Japanese, it just don't agree with me well.       Susan

The first week of March would probably work best for me.  Does someone else want to plan it???  Anybody??    I can plan it, but I'm really only familiar with things around the Brevard County area, other than the few places I've stopped at in Ocala which are right on the I-75 Hwy.  I don't want to do any overnights though, just lunch.

You know, I was reading the newspaper this morning and lo and behold, I saw in the paper where they're opening a new restaurant in Indiatlantic that is an Italian restaurant, and get this, it is called:   Andiamo's!!    Is that not amazing, or what?

1st or 2nd week of March is fine for me, I could do the early part of the 2nd week.  Around the 15-18 I'm not available because I will have to be celebrating my Mom's birthday on the 17th (St. Patty's Day).

March 10, 11, or 12th???   I just need to know if I'm planning this,,,,????   Is anybody else up for the task?   Where to we want to meet at?  I'm familiar with much, but not all, of the Melbourne area as far as I-95, Wickham Rd., US1 and Babcock.  I'm familiar with Ocala as far as I-75.  It know a little bit about Titusville, Cocoa, Merritt Island.  I know where a few roads in Orlando are, but honestly, I have a tendency to get lost easy.  It is sort of an annoying issue for me..., I don't have a GPS in my car, but I sure need one.

Is it possible to have the lunch close to you so that you don't have to drive far and can do it during the week?

I live in Brandon, and get an hour for lunch..     So that would be tough to do.. Unless everyone came here, and I doubt everyone wants to drive here for lunch.. LOL  


But maybe some weekend I can head towards tarpon and we could all go to Mr Savlakis for Lunch..

As my days are very unpredictable right now.....how about I'll 'help' plan it :}
Check out somewhere in the middle, etc.
  I like my town, lol! j/k

We need to consider who's in tx, rough shape to have them drive the least (I can get my son to drive me). As Eric has been thru a long, hard tx....send us some towns closer to you Eric.

Dperry, your done now, feeling better? Are you off work weekends? Brandons not too bad of a drive for me.
(funny! I seem to have a problem with stalkers! Online and off! Had one from Brandon in @99. Looked like Jesus. Found my house, would leave toys for my kids outside, kept coming to my job, got into a private opening of a biz,WEIRD guy! Okay, maybe not Brandon! lol!)

My problem is that I have rented a condo in Naples for the month of February and that is out of the way for most everyone else.  Then I am spending a week in the keys at a friend's place before I come back up to the Tampa area for the second week of March.

So I am here until Feb 1 and then back for the second week in March.  Then, off to NY for the summer and all the post study visits (every two weeks) to make sure the drugs didn't do anything awful to me - LOL - as if I need a blood test to know that!

Okay, everybody, you've seen Andiamo's and Dperry's situation.  I'll drive over towards the west side, if somebody living over on that side does the planning, because I can't plan it if I'm not familiar w/what's up over there, you know?  I just need sometime during the 1st two weeks of the month (but not on either side of St. Patrick's Day, in other words, not on the 16, 17, or 18th because that is in conflict w/being in Lake City for my Mom's Birthday.  She's Irish and her B-day fall's on St. Pat's Day, isn't that neat?

errrrrr   I should have copied my reply .. they seem to go into never never land.  Most of my posts never get there.  After I have typed out this long reply.    By the time I realize it.  I don't feel like typing it again.  

So short..  of what I wrote.     Brandon is actually convenient as in close to major HWY..   I - 75 and Hwy 60.     There are a bunch of places right in that general vacinity.   Lets see.. Bennegins, Mo's SW Grill. Red Lobster, Olive Garden.  Don Pablos,  Macaroni Grill.   , smokey bones.  Buddy Freddy's.  Sam Seltzers Steakhouse.  And for the ladies who like to shop.. After lunch, you can work it off , walking thru the mall.   Which also has a food court , with everything you can think of .. But fast food of course.    

So if anyone else has any ideas...    Tarpon would be a good time too, but not near any majoy highway, so for those not knowing the area.  Its out of the way kind of travel.   Closest major Hwy is US 19..   and pray for all that drive that.. LOL  , has gotten better over the years though.

So anyway...  we are open for ideas.   chime in.. and lets get this going.

The location directly off of I-75 sounds the best to me.  Also, Bennegins sounds like a good idea since to me, as they have a variety of foods for everybody's different likes/dislikes and they're not too expensive.  Also, for a directionally impaired person(me), someplace right by the highway seems like it would be easier for me to locate.  Also, maybe a few of us from the Brevard County area could carpool it.  I'm thinking of if Mouse was up to it maybe I could drive and she could relax (since she's treating and all).  With gas being so high, if anyone wanted to tag along w/me they could, I get good gas mileage and whoever road w/me could just chip a little bit for the gas over and back.  I don't want to spend the night, so it would be a day trip for me.

Ok.. we have a place, as long as everyone agrees.    We have Bennigens as the first choice.. And I believe I have a 20 % discount key chain somewhere.   I will look for it, or  will borrow one from a co-worker if I cannot find it.  

So we need to decide what day is better for everyone.    If we make it for around 2  - 230, the lunch crowd should be cleared out by then.    

I will just plan on an extended lunch or take a half day or something, so if some of you want to go to some shopping..

Anyone else want to join in ?
