Hey now~!

I've spoken to a couple of peaches who have expressed some interest in meeting up before the show. I know of a few that are staying at the Hilton. The idea has been put out there that we meet at the hotel and park there for the show (Merriweather is less than a mile away- ten minute walk). The hotel has a bar/restaurant for us to hang before hand.

Another idea is to meet up at a restaurant like has been done in the past.

Can we get a roll call of who can make it?

1. slowhand6 (Brian) and pureabundance (Darcie), plus two newbies (John and Angie)
2. susieqdownonthefarm
3. Jim Benjamin (I think? And I'm assuming either Jen or Emily?)
4.

I can't wait to see you all. It's been a while~!

Good chance I'll be going. Btw, is the Hilton cool with us parking there, and what time does everybody want to meet?

Show's at six. We've got the whole day off. So I'm game for anything. If any of you out of towners are going to be around earlier in the day let me know. I'm even open to lunch. There are plenty of cool spots in and around Baltimore, easily accessible if you have a car.

And as for the parking, I'll give them a call to double check. I'm a Diamond member since I stay with them ten days a month or more. So I am sure something can be arranged if they have a problem.

Peace~!

Depends on what time you're planning on heading to the show....I would love to come, but I'm pretty sure my sister and I are going to be getting there right at 6...and that's if I don't get stuck in traffic on my way to pick her up.

Sounds like we are going to have a good crowd.

In addition to the pre-show in the afternoon, how many might be up for lunch? If there are those who are free, Baltimore is my home town and I know plenty of places that are both enjoyable and easily accessible (by car). Talking to SusieQ yesterday & today I know she & my crew will most likely be meeting up. Depending on who else is in, I'm thinking lunch in Fells Point or old Towson.

Peace~!

Michael, I wish you were going to be there too!

Susie did a little research and found out that you can't walk from the hotel because it's a mile of highway to Merriweather. However, there is a shuttle that costs $22 roundtrip from the Hilton to Merriweather for as many people as the van can hold. Parking at the hotel is okay and free.

There is a mall nearby. But only one restaurant other than the hotel lounge. Hiltons are usually pretty nice and reasonable for dinner and cocktails and we were told that the bar tender takes care of her patrons.

Please keep me in the loop. Hoping to get off work early enough for pre-show festivities. Since the show is fairly early, should we have an after show plan, too?

I'm a little confused about transportation and parking. Merriweather has parking, no better or worse than any other venue.

Curious - are you guys also planning on seeing Derek at the Strathmore? I know Michael and Rose are.

I'll be leaving from DC about noon day of the Merriweather show, so no lunch for me....and it's just me for this one.

dTb at the Strathmore - my wife and I and another couple will be there....front row!

I think an after show plan would be great....especially since I doubt I'll even get there before 6:30 (here's hoping for very little traffic on 95 south). I'm parking at Merriweather....doesn't cost anything and it's pretty easy to get in and out of.

I would love to see Derek at the Strathmore, but unfortunately the show date is my mom's birthday. So...no DTB for me

There is a Clyde's nearby Merriweather where many will gather beforehand. It's right across the street. Here's a link....http://www.clydes.com/main/Find_Us.cfm?Section=Clydes_of_Columbia&a mp;submit=Submit

I'll be at the show.

Since you can no longer drink in the Parking Lot most folks preshow at one of the nearby Bars.

Clyde's is a bit up the road from Merriweather, Closer are the 2 Bars accross the road from
Merriweather at the Columbia Mall.


Hilton is fine If I can get there soon enough

Peace

Not being a native, whatever the group decides on is fine with us. Just give us a time and a place. We'll be there.
