How many can make it? What date?

Marcos Malo, do you want to handle the logistics?

If not I can do it but one way or another, we need to PM our email contact to whoever is coordinating the "event" so we can get things going.

As far as date, since the 28th seems out, what about Feb 4?

People, let's leave the technology behind for a few hours and revel in human companionship, shall we?

Hopefully this is the first and not the only meeting of Mister Ugla, so if some people can't make it for this one, they can make it for next time.

As far as having a feed at the feed, I do know of a cafe that has free wireless, and it's a few doors down from a righteous sandwich joint. The sandwich joint is probably too small, but the cafe has a back patio that I'm sure would fit us all. Something to keep in mind for the future, especially when the weather gets warmer.

I'm not sure about Feb. 4th. Is Super Bowl XL on the 4th? Or is it the 5th? If it doesn't conflict with our national religion, Feb. 4th sounds groovy to me.

I'm trying to set up an email address. Those interested in attending the very first dinner of MRUGLA, please email mrugla@fug-dup.net. I'm going to bed right now. Hopefully by tomorrow, the new address will have taken hold.

Yup, Swork. And Dave's Grillin' and Chillin'. Dave makes awesome sandwiches and I like his chili. It's not the best chili I've had, but I like the fact that he's striving to make a good chili and the fact that he uses a low ratio of kidney beans.

I was at Swork earlier this evening -- LOVE the Mexican Mayan Mocha. I always keep an eye out for you when I stop in.

Never tried G&C -- I'll have to check it out.

Btw, if it's important and the Tam is still in contention, they don't have WiFi.

I'm getting hungry.

Anyone who says LA doesn't have good food is truly misinformed. Every time I get up to LA I am amazed how many wonderful little places have sprung up and then there's the mainstays.

When I first came to LA in the early '60s I used to eat at Musso & Frank's every night. As a regular at the counter I rub shoulders with some famous movie people who were gracious and fun to talk with. And the food, the best!

Living in OC has presented me with a much greater challenge and a great deal of "dining" frustration. After twenty years, I still can't say that I have more than a few favorites and most restaurants here are way overpriced for the quality of their food. Bakeries, don't even ask sad smiley

That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

OK, whoever is coming to the TAM dinner, or even wants to be kept informed, write me at mrugla@fug-dup.com. February 4th. Time has not been selected as of yet, so suggest the best time for you. I'm thinking 7:00 PM.

If anyone thinks I'm moving too fast on making a decision, send an email to circularfile@imnotlistening.com. =) (If we try to be too democratic, we might never actually meet for dinner for the first time.)

L.A. has great food, from the taco trucks and Tommy's on up the scale. (I'm more partial to the trucks and Tommy's because I'm a bit of a cheapskate.)

Speaking of tacos . . .

Gene, have you ever been to that taco place on the right hand side of PCH, just before you get to Laguna proper? Best fish tacos I've ever eaten on either side of the border. Just thinking about it makes me want to jump on the bike and head there for lunch.

If you mean right before the center of town on the right side going North, yes I have, but not for a long time. As I remember they had the greatest lobster tacos.

My favorite restaurant at the present time is Ti Amo in South Laguna. Ate there last night. Mmmm!
