As long as the forecast doesn't worsen, I should be able to make it.

ETA:  I'm in.

Sorry, Josh.  I'd really like sushi (which is basically impossible to find in the NEK), so I think we'll go with Kinjo.

Kinjo it is.  7pm Friday.  Wondering if we should get a headcount to make a reservation.


Probably best to get a head count. I'm in.

You can add me to the head count.  See you on Friday at 7 at Kinjo in the Congress Street Plaza.

Please direct your concern towards Tim Brown and the Cincy meet in May.
https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=25466.75

I did make similar comments there concerning this. Now I'm hearing that Columbus has basically banned spectators from sort of Swarzenegger-sponsored athletic event.

I'm willing to entertain Kinjo, though my preference is not to do hibachi.

I'm monitoring this (not that I am likely to attend thanks to traveling the next morning), but Druthers (link) is something I'm surprised hasn't been suggested yet. A few more options for the picky eaters.

Hard for me to hear of an eatery called Druther's that's NOT the former Kentucky-based fast-food chain (which had previously been Burger Queen, but got bought out by Dairy Queen) with only one remaining location, in Campbellsville.

I'm in.  Weather isn't supposed to be terrible (Light snow showers and mid 30s) so I will probably still spend the afternoon getting some photos and clinches in on the way out.

Since this is the first road enthusiast gathering of the coronavirus era, so we greet everyone with a Vulcan salute or an elbow bump?

In Saratoga.  Got a reservation for 7pm.  Here's who I have for intentions (besides me):

Doug
Roth
kalvado
sinsbaugh
val
steve
duke

I made a reservation for 10 in case Josh (cl94) decides to join.  We'll be at a hibachi table even though we won't be doing hibachi because they don't have any non-hibachi tables that can seat more than 8.

Well, that was epic.  Happy birthday everyone!  Have some music, disco lights, a sparkler, and some ice cream!

That was one of the more absurd dining experiences that I've had with roadgeeks. There's been multiple.
