So much for my resolution to not eat out.

Mopac/Duval works for me.

That's fine with me as well.

I'll be there.

Darn, we cannot do it this month. I have VIP tickets for the Reverend Horton Heat at Antones downtown. :((( BTW, for those that know us, especially PstlPknNna (hope I spelled that right), We are getting MARRIED!!!!

OK - absent any input to the contrary, lets move to the DOMAIN LOCATION, at the intersection of Duval/Burnett/MoPac


[looks like there has been a schism in the Mangia franchise; mangiapizza.com and mangiaaustin.com]



Married? Wow!
Congratulations

I work, but I am sure gonna try like hell to make it by. Haven't seen you in damn near a year now.

Hope you are doing well and look forward to it. IT's my 2nd favorite pizza ever.

Totally forgot about these get togethers... shit, I haven't been in the HTF in probably over a year. I work on Tuesday nights, but I might be able to swing by for some pizza with you blokes that evening.

I have a business dinner on January 14 but I will try to meet up with you guys next month if that is cool
Link Posted: 1/11/2012 10:58:23 PM EDT
Damn, got excited for a second. I could walk to the Mangia on Lake Austin.

I was abducted for the Nov meetup, and then xmas last month. Definitely making this one for at least dinner.

Holy shiznit...
This month's dinner is set for the 14th, TOMORROW!

We usually have it on the 3rd weekend. Are we all good to go for tomorrow night?

Remember, we are changing the location to The DOMAIN Store
OP edited to reflect the change.

You just realized that it's for tomorrow NOW???

I'll still be there tomorrow night and I'll bring an appetite.

Driftwood is good. May be my first ARF dinner or meet up of any kind really; besides LT range day. Anyone out here in the beautiful TX Hill Country near Spicewood/Marble Falls that wants to meet up at Opie's or Cooper's? Maybe Jan '13?

I was abducted by buddies and taken to the strip club, hence the no show at the arf dinner. I wasn't probed, but by the end of the night I was so worked up I probably would have tried to probe the dumpster were it not for those last 5 shots.

BYOB strip clubs that are open until 5am are the greatest creation of man.

......and totally not allowed in MI. GOD BLESS TEXAS. I love this place, I think I'll stick around.

I generally have no commitments on the weekends so any Saturday is good for me. I'm on for tonight.

Edited to add: this is my first HTF dinner (be gentle). How does this work? Secret handshakes? We meet out front at 7:00 and then all go in together? Someone gets a table for all of us? Roll call?

I'm getting "stuff" done and working up an appetite for tonight

...off to finish up more of that ToDo list.

PstlPknNana, not yet, but we got the license. Taking care of some social insecurity stuff first, then out rockabilly singer friend will do us a quickie, she is an ordained minister!

Congratulations, Wally!!!
I had taken leave of this site for almost a month.
Then I check in to see where the dinner is this weekend,
and you all had it LAST weekend.
At least February and March are on my off weekends.

You could always start your own hill country get togethers if you wanted to.

Well, now that I have found this thread, maybe I can make the one next month provided drill does not get in the way.

Why not just change it to the week before or week after???

Wife and I will try to make our first dinner since coming down. This is pending on her work schedule and if we've moved into our place yet.
Link Posted: 2/5/2012 6:00:59 AM EDT
We most likely will not make the Salt Lick, just way to long a drive from home, but, hopefully, the next.

What?!
Change the date? UN-POSSIBLE!!


Uh... we could actually do that. What say y'all?
Link Posted: 2/10/2012 5:03:26 PM EDT
I say have it on the 25th of Feb.
Link Posted: 2/11/2012 8:46:51 AM EDT

Any more votes to change date?

25th is better for me. SO is running the marathon on the 19th which makes for an early morning getting downtown at 5am. it would make the 2 hour drive less of a hassle.
Link Posted: 2/17/2012 7:20:59 AM EDT
Date changed to the 25th

More people can make it then.... and maybe the weather will be better.

Going to try to make it. It is my last Sat off for 2 months. We'll see what wife says. She has a baby shower in SA to attend before hand.

Hope you are doing well friend.
Link Posted: 2/21/2012 11:08:02 PM EDT
Could have made the 18th. Have to work the 25th.
Link Posted: 2/22/2012 3:16:12 AM EDT
Enjoy dinner folks, we have events scheduled Sat and Sun, a Hamfest (flea market for ham radio) in Georgetown and packet stuffing on Sun. Hopefully we will see y'all next month!
Link Posted: 2/22/2012 2:03:22 PM EDT
If I don't work past 1700 I'll be there this Saturday.
Link Posted: 2/22/2012 3:13:46 PM EDT
I WILL BE THERE. Lookin' at the menu now. Decision, decisions...
Link Posted: 2/22/2012 4:50:02 PM EDT
I'm gonna be on a retreat with my church. Sorry.

Salt Lick TOMORROW!

Damn, just found this thread. Just moved to the Austin/Round Rock area (Taylor specifically), and would have loved to go to the Salt Lick. Unfortunately, we already have plans for tomorrow night that involve our new business. Damn. Also doesn't help that it's an hour and 15 mins away...

If nothing else, June's dinner is at Reale's. Really good Italian in north Austin. Anderson Mill & 183 area. I've only eaten there once. I'm looking forward to returning.

let me know if you want to share a ride to one of the dinners. I live off of 79 just outside of Hutto.

Link Posted: 2/24/2012 7:46:09 PM EDT
Anyone have property near the Lick, ie Wimberly/Driftwood/Dripping Springs that wants to shoot before dinner tomorrow?
Link Posted: 2/24/2012 9:59:47 PM EDT
The missus and offspring will be there. At least that's the plan.
This is my work week, so I won't be able to make it.
We drove by there last week. It looks like they have
changed up their parking lot and entrance.

Yea, anything less than 24/7 (like Fury) isn't enough

ETA:
I plan on getting there about 6:30 to get us in line. There is always a line!
BRING CASH - they do not take plastic, and the on-site ATM is expensive.
You can also bring your own adult beverages. They do not sell beer, though they do allow you to bring your own.
