    Yes, but the important point was the jambalaya with fettucine. Hot damn, that was nice.

    I think there should be a mandatory 2 drink minimum.

    Nice Theo,

    Butter drinks coffee at bars… lol

    BTW That makes me think of something. Neuralgourmet and his lovely gal came up with an idea of having a late morning coffee social on a Sundays. (Not every Sunday-probably monthly). I love that idea.

  4. Thanks for posting the notes dystressed. It really helps aging gray cells remember what went on.

    It was nice having the meeting at Munchies too. It’s probably the very first place I went after moving to Fort Wayne and it’s one of our favorites. We should have the next Happy Hour there, although it should be on a Monday night since Munchies has half price pints on Mondays.

    Catherine and I will set up the FFW Sunday Coffee Klatch. I’m not sure if we can get one into October or not since the first opportunity we’d have would be the 26th and there’s tentative plans for the group to go see Richard Carrier on that date.

    I agree with the coffee idea – I am at least 11% smarter in the morning than at the end of the day anyway.

    NG, thanks to you and Catherine for taking the initiative. While we don’t have the luxury of a permanent location, what about having a standard weekly coffee time like CFI Indy, open to anyone that can make it?

    11% smarter in the morning? Does that have anything to do with that we only use 10% percent of our brains myth? lol
