    Hey guys,
    I'm flying into Dallas for a few days... I'll be in the North Dallas area from today until Wed.

    I know this is last minute, but does anyone want to meet up for some drinks or something tonight or tomorrow?

    I can be reached via email at byron@ferraridrivingclub.com and by cell 310-993-4833.

    Thanks,
    Byron

    To be honest, I'm partied out and pretty busy after work, but can you meet for lunch tomorrow? By then we could get a few others together and maybe view the FoD showroom. Have you seen it yet?

    How far is the FoD showroom from Irving? I'm not sure if I can swing that just yet, but I'll let you know. Lunch sounds like a possibility. If it doesn't work out, it's okay... it was very last minute.

    Rob, I'll give you a buzz when I'm in town. Tillman, you around?

    JimE and I both work in Irving(Las Colinas). There are some good places to eat lunch here. Norwoods and LoD are in the area if we want to go there instead. Depends how much time you have. I won't have more than about hour-fifteen.

    I can do lunch tomorrow, but can't get there until probably 11:45. Not sure I have time for LoD or Norwoods, but can definitely eat.

    Sorry I didn't see this post till now.

    I also work in Irving, and if you want to look around the town, I may be able to accomodate.

    If you guys are busy, I can show him around for couple hours. My work time is more flexible.

    Hey guys...
    I just got into town... I'm at the Westin Park Central. I'll be working at our office in the Irving/Las Colinas area... I think a 1:15 lunch and quick jaunt over to Norwoods or LoD/FoD would be fun. Would be nice to meet some of you in person, finally!

    I'll be available by phone during the day... and here on F-Chat... let's try to coordinate lunch tomorrow! :)

    I can't go at 1:15, too late. I have a 1:30 meeting. I have an 11:00 that usually lasts about 20 minutes, and I can eat after that.

    Let me know if that works.

    Byron, where in Las Colinas are you?

    Byron, is 12 OK for you? Or does it have to be 1:15? I can do 1:15, but we'll try to get Jim there too.

    Humperdinks or do Champs over on MacArthur?

    Sorry... Rob, I thought you mentioned you can get away for 1 hr 15 min... hence the 1:15! :)

    I'm off Royal and the GB. I have a conference call at 11:30 that should last an hour or so... 1pm would be the earliest I could meet for lunch. macarthur is nearby...

    How does that sound?

    OK, your up there North of DFW airport and Grapevine Mills Mall. About 10 minutes from Las Colinas. How about Big Buck Brewery that is next to the Outdoor World? 1pm?

    Isn't that closer for you Tillman? Sounds like Jim can't make it.

    So come along. The more the merrier. Yoshi?

    It's Byron's call. Either place is about the same for me. Grapevine Mills is actually on my way home. 1:00 is fine, and I am actually clear the rest of this afternoon.

    Go to Champs so I can at least look at the cars out the window. I'll try to make it if I can, I might blow off the meeting.

    Byron, it's at 114 between McArthur and Walnut. Go South on McArthur from Royal, turn left into the shopping center where Starbucks and Red Hot and Blue is. It's on the far end of the shopping center.

    Nevermind, I was confused where Royal & George Bush is. I think you actually are close to Las Colinas and MacArthur. I was thinking of Royal and 121 before up in Grapevine. You're probably at Royal and 161 (which will/is George Bush).

    We'll just meet at Champs and then you can go to Norwoods or LoD afterwards. How about 12:45pm in case JimE can join us for a little and we'll just wait around for Byron if he can't there til after 1:00. Sound good?

    Champs is not at the red star. maps.yahoo doesn't quite have it right. Follow Jim's directions. It's at NE corner of 114 and MacArthur back in the strip mall.

    Is 161 a toll road these days? I'll be coming in 183 and can either take it all the way to Loop 12/114 or I can take 161.

    Thanks
