I've heard it's like "herding cats" trying to get the Bay Area ohana together for a monthly get together - but hey our peeps in Chicago and Atlanta can do it, why can't we?

I want to gauge interest in whether we should get this going.

Poll:

Who has interest in meeting once a month at the Trader Vics in Emeryville on a Thursday or Friday night? If so, do you prefer Thus or Fri night? Also, what would work better - 2nd week of month or last week of month (or any other options?)

It is so nice to get there on a Thus or Fri night after work and watch the sun go down, and gently battle with the folks at the table next to you over whether the blinds go up or down!

I would be very interested in such a thing.

I vote for Thursday because it would be less crowded, and also so I can attend and still get out of town for the weekend if I want.

Which week isn't terribly important but I sometimes go to LA for Club Satisfaction the 2nd. Friday each month so I may need stay home and pack on the 2nd. Thursday of the month.

Some time ago JT posted the following about a special early/late happy hour at Trader Vic's. We should call and see if it still happens. I could never get there before 6 but I could see myself arriving late at 10 for $5 Mai Tais!

Thanks for the info!

I don't know if Emeryville does a happy hour like the SF TV's does; but I'm sure if enough of us show up consistently, we can negotiate one.

I'm new, so I realise I have only a small voice here, but we (my husband & I) would love to meet up with other Bay Area peoples on Thursdays (Emeryville, please, since we're in East Oakland?).


How FUN!!

Greetings from North Bay.

Would love to start meeting other TC ohana on a regular basis. I would prefer Thursdays as well. Please count me in!

That sounds great! Coco Loco and I are in. Since we live in the East Bay, the Emeryville location would be more convenient for us, but we'd also be in for the San Francisco location as well.

Thursdays sound more appealing to us than Fridays.

Not to complicate matters, but if the Trader Vic's Emeryville location won't give us the happy hour, then maybe we could rotate locations? Just throwing that one out there.

Let's shoot for last Thurs of the month, starting this month 7/28, at 7 pm, in the bar area, at Emeryville TV.

Yay!

Should we name it? "Get together" seems so un-TC.

How about Last Chance Thursdays? Or Pre-pay day drinking? Something about "on the bay"?

I have "TV Night" written on my calendar, but that makes me sound like a television junkie (I am, but I'm in rehab).

Plus, I have something to celebrate - I just made purple belt in my karate class!
