No, I do not have the details yet, but I'll be working on them. All it took was for a hot No Cal woman asking sweetly for a little dinner company to get this started. It will be somewhere that serves food at a reasonable hour. Suggestions are welcomed! Since it was in the OC last year, I may look into the Redondo Beachish area this year (half way and a compromise). Of course, depending on the crowd coming, it may be an OC thing again.

So far, I have these peeps, Yo:

Others?
Halfway between where and where? Compromise? Have you seen a map of SoCal recently?

Now, lookie here, Dannyboy... There are people in THIS area (SFV and over in Pasadena, etc.) who have a long drive to get to OC. We have to compromise somehow and depending on the list of who RSVPs, we will find a location that is most convenient to the majority.

SD to Redondo - 2+ hours
Sherman Oaks to Redondo - 40min

Compromise indeed. Besides, it's not my fault you live in BFE.

You need to take a Vicadin and just turn that frown upside down, mister. Besides, I didn't see YOUR name showing interest in the other thread.

I'm not that interested in your brand of attendance anyway.

I have plans earlier in the day, I expect I'll be done in plenty of time to make this though.

I thought this was the interest thread. And whining is a legitimate form of interest.

If it's on the Westside, peeps can do the Xmas Century in the SM mountains ("only" 5600 ft of climbing!) and chow down afterwards.

How'd my name mysteriously get on the list without even yet replying? Subliminal prodding?

I should be able to go - Disney is adopting 175 of our client families this year for gifts/goodies, etc., and the distribution event is at my work that day but I should be done in time!

Matt and I are interested.

Also, he will be starting the 2nd annual Burrito Century thread soon (for the day after the Holiday Party- since we have to be consistent! )

edit to add: We would love it if it was in the OC....but what about Long Beach as another alternative/compromise?

Maybe that's because it's at your house!

Is it mandatory? Even if my company xmas party is on the same weekend, I'm skipping it. I already spent my time for the company ... I'm not spending any more of my free time to a company that doesn't support me completely ... sorry, I'm venting.
