Here's hoping that Todd will show. He's a regular.

Who knows? Maybe someone else will come out.

So, Cat & Fiddle if it's open?

Definitely. Still waiting for a response to asking if it might happen.

"Hope we are open then, yes!"

So, seems possible!

"Hope?"

A worrying word.

Anyway, we're on for that date, right?

So is this still on for the 13th? I've got to find someone to watch my kids.

I'm planning on being there, wherever "there" is - the C&F keep saying they're almost ready to open but haven't done so yet. If they don't, where? My choice would be here:

http://www.pickwickpub.com/

Which I think we did once before and it worked out pretty well. But I'm up for whatever, just have to head to Burbank to get there by 7.

That's right, I'd forgotten we were having the usual troubles choosing a venue. :lol:
I don't care where we go since you've all shot me down as far as Barney's goes ages ago...

I went to C&F's fb page to see if there was an update. There wasn't, but there was a comment asking how it was looking for mid-May - from Quaco! :D

They haven't updated lately, and we're two weeks away, so I think we should assume the C&F is NOT a possibility. Anybody have any ideas? Anywhere in the valley probably works for me.

Looking around, Pickwick's Pub looks alright too. [rant]But why do British/Irish pubs seem to have so few imported beers? It's all Corona, Stella, Miller ... and Guinness and Boddington's. It's a sorry state of affairs, and if someone can find a pub that serves real British beer, I'll drive anywhere.[/rant] The Old Ship in Fullerton and Santa Ana is pretty good.

As far as a place where we can talk, I dunno. I'll drive to Camarillo, I don't care!

Anna!! Please come out! Bring whatsisname!

I'm gently reminded that that weekend is Mother's Day, that plans are already afoot, that we don't have cheap flights we have money off vouchers for Southwest for forcing us to fly to New Orleans with a cracked windshield and that we can't just GO TO CALIFORNIA WHENEVER THE WHIM OVERTAKES US











Some of the above may have been exaggerated for comedic effect.

We don't really drink. We've all mastered the fine art of discreetly pouring a bit of our beer out while talking until there's nothing left in the glass, and then ordering another one. Then we Uber a ride home just to be safe.

Update! My mother in law would LOVE to come!
This could be very, very interesting! She's done in after one sherry.

Yep. Kinda par for the course, though Uber has helped this a lot.

All right, I've switched days with the ex so I don't have the kids next Saturday. Now Dave, Jim and I have checked in - Is Tom good for that day?
