Hi, my name is Jules, I am also new to the area, just moved from L.A. last July. Tom told me about this little Hoe-down. I don’t really know if it is one word or two but I learned long ago when in down, hyphenate.
Anyway, am I getting this correct - the hoe-down is 7pm next Saturday the 26th at Chili’s in Bellevue? Under whose name will the table be, since I don;t think I have ever met anyone who is planning to go (unless one of the posters in this string is Jason Lutes or one of the people I played board games with about three weeks ago.
You got the date right Jules. We always recommend people look for Alan Au, because he purchased one of those nifty Quarter to Three T-shirts.
We could try and have a life sized cardboard cut out of Tom Chick wearing a beret and looking like he’s trying to check out the cleavage of unsuspecting girls, but only if you think that would help. :)
But seriously that is always a problem. I’m not sure if you can make reservations at Chili’s, but I will try to give them a call next week. Worst comes to worst, the first one there should get a table, tell the person at the front counter where we are, and maybe put a “Q23 in the house” sign up on the desk. Sound good?
The problem with going to a games place or watching a movie is that you don’t prioritize talking to one another if you do that. Maybe I am just an old fashioned boy, but if you’re not prioritizing chatting one another up, wtf is the point?
I’ll probably be driving by the general vicinity at the time, U-Haul trailer in tow, moving from LA back up to Vancouver so if you see or hear an idiot in 4Runner with California license plates and a U-Haul trailer in tow, honk your horn and wave. I’ll probably flip you the bird in return but don’t take it to heart.
