BGG.Con is almost here! GCL Mafia crew - I want to get on your schedule before it fills up all the way, if that hasn't yet happened.

Lunch! - Friday, Noonish, meet near Matthews Boardroom
Every year, we try to do a lunch. It's often at the Hard 8, which is not my favorite but it's a popular pick, and may be the next-to-last chance to do so before BGG.Con moves to downtown Dallas. What day is good for the most people? Friday noon is the absolute best day/time for me to swing it, but Saturday is doable as well (and Thursday is possible if it's later, I'm doing T.I.M.E Stories at 10am that day).

Warrior Knights!
This is often one of my favorite experiences of the con. Who's ready to throw down for this Euro disguised as a stabby game? We could schedule this for after the group lunch if that's convenient. My mornings are booked, but any afternoon/evening is good for me (except Saturday night).


If I need to do a Doodle poll I can, but hopefully we can hammer something out here. I'm looking forwartd to seeing you all soon!

Down for Both! I have Library duty from 3-5 and the VFM at 6 on Thursday, but other than that I'm free.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

Hard Eight BBQ has been our lunch standard for a few years, and I'd be happy to go again. I'm a big fan of their food. The only constraining factor with them is we really want to go at an off hour - if you go during prime lunch or dinner time the wait is way too long.

If anyone would be interested in gathering at 2:00-ish and getting there approx 2:30 that would be lovely. The last two years that got us there with essentially no wait.

As of now I think I could do that any day, although I'm still mid-planning.

Edit: I'll just jot down noon Friday for team lunch.

I'm open to non-BBQ options as well, but I don't have any recommendations. I'm so helpful. zombie

I can't make any commitments until I finish up determining my Teamgeek schedule which won't be until this Saturday.

If BBQ is not a hard commit (see what I did there?), there's a really good Mediterranean place close to the airport.

My personal preference is for the BBQ but I could wipe my tears away with pita bread if necessary laugh

What's the Mediterranean place? I'm intrigued.

Let's go ahead and hammer down the date for this. Thursday? Or Friday? (Those seemed to be what people gravitated towards.) Is Friday noon-ish best for people? It dovetails nicely with the Fische Fluppen Frikkadellen game several of us are doing, but if another time gets more interest, that's awesome as well!

Friday after FFF sounds great to me.

It's called Andalous. The Yelp reviews are very positive.

I'm hoping that I'm welcome to join, as a former member? Friday at noon works for me. My wife will probably want to tag along, as well.
