It’s the second week of October. Someone want to propose a date and see how that floats by everyone else? The only date for me that’s out is the 15th.

Two people asked me in person about this at tonight’s membership meeting, so there is clearly interest.

How about let’s say next Thursday, Oct. 17, noon? If that date and time are good, it’s possible that Market Square might not be, as they’ve been having a farmer’s market kinda thing every Thursday in MktSq, and it gets busy.

I’m open to alternate places, times, days…

It might be hard to get a table, but on the other hand it’s easy to get some quick perogies, greek food, or pie for lunch. Last time we did Jimmy John’s takeaway– do people want to do this style again, or meet inside at a restaurant?

I’m fine with pretty much any day/time/place.

I’d love to join one of these days, but I can only do Mondays. I am guessing anyone with a real job finds it hard to peel away on a Monday afternoon. Bummer.

I’ll be taking menorah lighting kit orders. If, of course, I know where to go and when.

For now, I’ll take it as a given tomorrow at noon. Weather forecast looks iffy.

I’ll be brown bagging regardless. Someone that actually would eat the venue’s food, decide.

The farmers’ market thing is going on in Market Square, which is good and bad. Good, lots more choices in food. Bad, not a lot of places to sit down. I’m brown-bagging it myself, so I’m not picky where we go, so long as we can sit.

The weather doesn’t look bad, maybe a sprinkle at worst. At 10:20, the radar shows some rain off to the south, but I think we’ll be OK. At least no downpour like last month.

I say let’s do it, meet up in the corner nearest Chipotle and Noodles & Co, where there are some tables, and maybe we’ll be lucky enough to get one. Like last month, if we do get poured on, we can just retreat to the lower level of the food court, diagonally across MktSq and down the escalator.

I have a light blue dress shirt on, but I won’t have the bike with me.

Would any of you plan to make it? If so, what day (Monday, Thursday, or Friday) works best?

abm760, no pressure, I know you don’t work downtown and I have a couple squirrel hill deliveries AND hope to be coming by your way again before too long to check out tandem/tagalong again for riding prospects with my daughter (btw thanks!)

Thursday is better, but all are OK. (I have a 1p meeting on M & F.)

If nobody else jumps in and suggests otherwise (I don’t care really), let’s go with Thursday at noon. I think it’s best at this point of the year to plan an indoor location. So again, default assumption if nobody jumps in and suggests otherwise, I don’t care, but Jimmy Johns?

Hope to see a few of you there. I’ll have more than two lighting kits with just in case :)

Anychance we can do 12:30? I normally eat lunch at 1:30.

Silence has been taken as assent.

In this case not to anything insidious :)

12:30 it is.

Well, we can call for delivery from JJ so some people could join us while while they are working. :)

Will have a couple extra light kits just in case there are takers.

Unfortunately a meeting has come up at work and I don’t think I’ll be able to make it any longer. Have fun, everyone.

Would like to do another of these. Don’t really care where or when (well, Fridays aren’t great for me… but otherwise).

BTW anyone have direct contact info for our new bike/ped coordinator? I imagine if it’s based on her schedule so she could come it would be better attended.


edmonds59

Hey anyone know anything about the Flock ride last Friday? I was assuming the special guest was to be the bike coord. Happened?


StuInMcCandless

It did; she was there and rode. We went bowling afterward, which would have been more fun if the music wasn’t so damn loud. Any conversation I had with her was mainly outside.

She said her email is on the city website, which I haven’t looked up yet.

Except for next Monday 10/27 and M11/3-T11/4, I’m OK with just about any day in the coming week or two.

Generic googling her name and Pittsburgh gives bunch of press releases but nothing about contacting.

Specific to the city of pittsburgh website? “site:pittsburghpa.gov Kristin Saunders”, found a PDF org chart on the city website with a phone number, but I’d feel awfully silly calling on unofficial business (I could never do sales).

Reasonable chance like with so many organizations it’s .@. Will try that tonight and see if it doesn’t bounce. Unless someone has something better.
