    I'm away that weekend. This would be a great event for someone new to organize. Fine Dining events are pretty simple.

    Saturday, May 21 Fine Dining #6, location TBD

    You pick the place, setup the reservation, and communicate the event out. Tillman and I can assist whoever wants to do it.

    Any takers?

    I'd be happy to help out since scoping out the parking situation (security and ground clearance) will need to be checked out with an f-car. Since we did downtown last time, and mid-town the time before, maybe we should do it in North Dallas this time?

    Okay everyone. I am joining FCA officially. :) Im soooo excited!!!

    Now, yeah I think North Dallas would be a good location, although I had a place in uptown in mind...(not The Mansion, Dave...lol). And the parking situation would be pretty much secure with the place I have in mind also.

    CD, you sent me a PM, but your PM box is full, you need to delete some messages.

    The answer to your question is, no that will absolutely not be an issue. I promise.

    I will be more than happy to do the deal if no one else wants too. I have a great place in uptown, super parking and clearance or we can do a N. Dallas deal. Is there anything in Las Colinas-that way we could blend the Dallas and Arlington/Ft. Worth contingent.

    ^That would probably be the best thing.

    I think I will leave the planning to an actual FCA member, since my membership is currently pending (saving all my pennies...lol).

    I look forward to meeting more of you FCA and F-Chat members at an actual event. Today Josh (Supercarlover) gave me a tour at Park Place on my lunch, which was awesome. He's cool.

    I know of no places in Las Colinas...well not right now... Anyone else does?

    Via Real? Does that qualify? We could get a private room?

    I was thinking about Via Real also but since we recently had the JM Newsbrief happy hour there, was hoping we could brainstorm another location. It is not exactly a find dining experience but I'm o.k. with that if you guys are. I had thought the original intention of the fine dining event was to have a experience that differentiated from where we would typically go for a happy hour, lunch, off the cuff get together.

    Would Oceanair at the Galleria be too far for the from the West travelers?

    How about grapevine?? We could do something at the Gaylord or one of Dave Wamstead's(sp) places-like the Silver Fox. Just kicking around some ideas.

    What do you guys think about this Brazilian Steakhouse in Grapevine?

    http://www.guidelive.com/portal/page?_pageid=33,97400&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL&item_id=12400

    Sounds like it is along the lines of Fogo De Chao andTexas De Brazil. Seats 400 so there will definitely be plenty of room!

    Uh-oh. It worked fine for me when I clicked on it. Maybe try copy and pasting or you can look up the restaurant name - Boi Na Braza.

    Definitely need to break out the expandomatics.

    If in Grapevine, I might have the slight chance of actually making it. Racing at MSR all weekend, but could maybe arrive 8pm or so if I sleep at home.

    Looks pretty good to me. Should satisfy the central location so there should be no reason we don't have a good showing. It looks similar to Texas de Brazil, which is quite tasty.

    I think we have picked a place, date and time. Now for the attendance list. Should I start another thread? I will call the restaurant and let them know we are coming.
