    its definitely a US MEAT place. that being said, Daeneyrs and I will with them to make sure there are a few vegan meals. on the standard menu are a few different veggie sides and kabobs. Besides Peadar, who is now considered officially rsvped -- its been too long friend, who else might have special dietary needs? Let us know.

    for those that haven't seen it.... and there may be no info here too ... maybe getting a large dinner space in KC is actually much harder than Spokane (I guess we got lucky there). We've got a large room at what I'm told is the a favorite of many boarders (and I'm spacing on board names). That's sunday night. Post here, hit the fb group PM me or Daenerys stormborn. yeah, she has a better name. The room holds 50 and I'll need to have some numbers to the restaurant next week (but in my mind all are welcome till we hit 49). I'm mean if POD can commit, so can you. and let's be honest, if this place is as good as its rep, i'm going more than once. We are working on Wednesday night dinner ... not quite nailed down.looking like it might be a pub take over, they are working with us. if you'll be in town tuesday, i've set up a dinner for 20 -- hopefully it will be as memorable as last years first dinner. you know, the one that encouraged blackfyre to shave off his beard. And HUGE ups and much love to Daenerys Stormborn who is doing most of the heavy lifting here. can't wait to see you all in few weeks. Even POD

  5. The Passage sequence: The City of Mirrors [spoilers]

    no spoilers. City of Mirrors is on my desk. And there are about 8 books on my kindle to be read. This is what happens when my commute via train (and reading time) turns into 3+ hours per day of bumper to bumper traffic. gag I have been waiting for this book for years.

    hey kids. Neal will be in town 5/23 it seems. who wants to meet in SF for drinks? I'll coordinate.
  7. drat. I saw you were in SF a few months a go and I hadn't been on the board.  My appologies.  We try to be more welcoming.  I"ll blame Bronn.

  9. What's For Dinner v. 6

    i saw the pic. that looked amazing. I'm cooking for tomorrow's extravaganza pop up.  You know when everyone is in white, you start with -- spicy gazpacho!  and fried chicken and avocado bean salad and hummus, from beans in a can! I said it.  and I'll find a clever use for bacon jam, I'm going to twist it and make it bbq fig bacon jam, but there will still be bourbon and coffee.  #SillyPosts2PadMyStats

    no, we will NOT split a room with you. please stop badgering us about it.  But we intend on coming and rocking the bbq ...probably for 40 of us .....
  11. Dating: Matchmakers, dealbreakers and affairs, oh my!

     it's sad that there is a need to filter out the asses.  clearly, if he got filtered, he wasn't smart enough to see the phenomenal person in front of him.  And he probably had spiders in his hair, so he did you a favor.

    we are still eating leftover smoked meatloaf (the recipe and pictures are here) and the smoked beans I made.  Fried chicken this weekend.  8 days at the con and I'm still not back on a solid cooking routine. :)  Of course I was out most this past weekend, so I can't complain about those great meals.
  13. Dating: Matchmakers, dealbreakers and affairs, oh my!

    after hearing about all the fun I was missing in GC (over the weekend) I decided to pop in.  I am so glad I'm not hip deep in the dating scene from some of these posts, though I have spied some similar shenanigans from my trusty seat in too many bars.  Don't spread it too far, but I'm very lucky that theRedWoman is so perfect.  Although if you all keep calling her 'a living goddess" I'm sure I'll be in trouble.  And yes, I lived through a disaster similar to the one Resonant Frequency described.  But with more vomit.  and much less making out.  But not with my Valkyrie.  Ok, I'm done making my presence known.  :cheers:

    when someone sets up thunderdome and survivor, please let me know. I avoid the board in general these days.
