I'm in. Also looking forward to meeting Minnie's mother in law!

As much as I hate to say it, it would be better for me personally to postpone this a bit as I've had a family emergency come up. But if it does get decided (and we can pick a place) I will, at very least, drop by if I can. As I said, I will be playing at the Story Tavern in Burbank (150 S. San Fernando if anyone wants to go) that night and will need to get there no later than 7.

Sorry to hear about that. I hope everything is okay. I have a rehearsal at 6:00 in Van Nuys but that shouldn't be an issue.

So, where and when?

Why don't we say Pickwick's Pub at 3PM?

Works for me. 2:00 might be better as I have to leave at 5:00 or so.

I should be able to make that, at least for a bit. Getting my hair cut at 2:30 in Studio City, so I'll come after that.

I hate to say this, but I have had a family emergency come up too. I'm going to be visiting my mom in the afternoon. Not life-threatening, by the way, but I want to be there. Depending on how it goes, I might be back in L.A. after a few hours, or maybe not. I wish I could say, and I'm sorry. I've really been looking forward to this!

I know where you all will be and when, so hopefully I can make it.

Oh dear. Well, looks like we're the incredible shrinking group. Is this still happening? I'll try to drop by, but it's looking easier all around for me to go to my hair appt., come back home, THEN head out to the valley. So hoping I don't miss you, but I'll try my best...

Paul the Fish? Seriously? Or are you joshing me?

I could stop by, but it'll be at least another hour. Let me know when you're leaving so I'll know if there's any point.

Just got home, and need to be in Burbank by 7. Not gonna happen this time. Sorry.

You're still welcome to drop by the Story Tavern if you want to...

I just got off the phone with Paul. Today is out for me, family stuff and all, so he and I are planning to meet up for lunch on Monday. No set time, but we're thinking around 11am, which gives him time to do some sightseeing and me time to get home before traffic kicks in. (Traffic actually never "kicks out" these days, but I just need to get myself south of downtown by 2pm to minimize the torture.) Due to this ongoing hand pain issue, I can't stay long anyway, but he's come all this way, so I should at least make the effort! i assume all of you will be working tomorrow, but I'm putting the word out, just in case.

I'm working AND helping my mom out (nothing life-threatening, at least not in the short term, but she pretty much needs round the clock care at this point), so I'm doubtful, which I'm sad about. How did I not know Paul was around? Depending on how late he's around Monday maybe a quick get-together might be feasible at some point.

Dave, Jim, etc. - call me at the hotel on Monday if you are available. I'll be near the phone at 2:00, 4:00 and 6:00 to see if you call.
