Where the heart is
I have received a number of responses from BOLers who are interested in meeting for dinner on Saturday, June 11th.

Based on Andy's list of $$ priced restaurants near the harbor, I've narrowed the selection to the following three. I have included a link for the menu to each restaurant to help you decide:

Cheesecake Factory Pratt Street Pavilion American 410-234-3990 $$
http://www.thecheesecakefactory.com/menu.htm

J. Paul’s 301 Light Street American Fare 410-659-1889 $$
http://www.j-pauls.com/dir/menus/h_regular.aspx

Paolo’s Light Street Pavilion Italian 410-539-7060 $$
http://www.paolosristorante.com/locations/harborplace-menu.aspx

Please send me a PM with your choice of restaurant by June 6th, and I'll make the reservations based on the restaurant with the most votes. In case of a tie, I will blind pick the winner.

BTW - this will be "Dutch treat" otherwise known as BYOC (Bring your own cash!)

Looking forward to meeting my fellow BOLers!

Why Baltimore? And why June 11th?

Many will be gathering in Baltimore for the ABA National Regulatory Compliance Conference scheduled for June 12 - 15. There was a discussion about this in another thread and those BOL'ers that will be coming in on Saturday (to take advantage of lower airfare or other reasons) are discussing the possibility of getting together to put faces with names.

It was in San Diego in 1998 - that was my first conference, when I took my CRCM exam, and my only visit to California.

Are there any plans to get together any other time besides Saturday for those of us who won't arrive until Sunday?

Perhaps I will attend to make it interesting. Do any of them offer vegan meals?

A conservative vegan!? Isn't that an oxymoron?

Not to worry, we usually get together a lot during conference. Have any of you signed up for the dine around?

I know it won't be in 2006 - already scheduled for Orlando, FL. 2007 will probably be back in the DC/Baltimore area as they try to hold it in that area every other year to ensure large participation by the regulatory agency policy makers and ABA staff. So I'd say 2008 at the earliest.

I haven't - the newsletter today said there was still room for all the activities. I just can't decide....

I know I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again!

Hey, I was there too. My only conference and I loved San Diego.

I vote for J Pauls. Anything with seafood! And hopefully wine.

Sorry I didn't help, Bonnie. I have been inundated at work and have no time to even think of anything else. Been getting headaches..haven't had that in well over a year. Ugh.

If I can offer a bit of insight - Cheesecake Factory is going to be very, very crowded (think 2 hour wait potential) and extremely noisy - very hard to talk in that setting. The food, however, is excellent.

Be warned - A group of 9 of my friends tried to get into the Cheesecake Factory in Baltimore on Saturday afternoon at 4:30. They were told it would be a 4 hour wait.

I believe we were going to make reservations. Cheesecake Factory was on the list Andy posted that had private dining rooms.

I'll be there on Saturday. I don't care where we eat as long as it has food!

Princess & Generous: I'm also going to the B-Ball game.
