A Feast

Sun February 24 at 12:30 PM, Feast
219 Westheimer Road, Houston, TX, USA (Map & Directions)
...time to circle the wagons, see friends you haven't seen in a while, let them know that they're important to you, and maybe even make new friends in the process. We've lost one of our own, and the best way to deal with that is to be together.
Let's get together and have a feast, at Feast (which is scheduled to close later this year). We've got some options for how to handle that - we can go on a Sunday afternoon for one of their "roasts" - which is a set $20 menu which includes a choice of entrees and dessert. Or we can go some evening and enjoy the full menu. But let's crowdsource the answer to that particular question and see how the collective feels about our options. (Personally, I'd favor the full menu. Feast's real magic is in its wild variety.)

This will be a meetup where we need to make a reservation, so your RSVP will be appreciated.

If this happens this Sunday afternoon, I will make every effort to be there. Dinner's probably too late for me, but don't let that stop y'all.

I'm game. My 2009 review of the place.

(Friday or Saturday evening is also a possibility for me)
posted by ColdChef at 1:38 PM on February 20, 2013


yum.

no preference on timing.

I am not good Saturday evening, but will clear decks for all other times. Maybe Friday night for the full-option option? (Sunday afternoon seems pleasantly chill though. Also: day drinking.)

For scheduling purposes!

DOODLE!

I'm out of town until next week (OK, I'm out of town, but coming in for the BBQ and leaving immediately after). I'm free on the 2nd, though.

Coldchef, I have crash space if you need it.
posted by Runes at 2:43 PM on February 20, 2013


I'm in. Available times doodled.
posted by Gridlock Joe at 6:47 PM on February 20, 2013


Runes, I appreciate that. I'll be in touch.
posted by ColdChef at 8:12 PM on February 20, 2013


In fact, I have space for the whole family if you need it, though your young gentleman might be on a couch and the girls will be in a teenager's room. Oh yeah, I have cat's.

Wolf Daddy's birthday was May 21st. How about doing it then?
posted by brujita at 9:40 PM on February 20, 2013


I'm interested, as long as other obligations don't interfere.

Wolf Daddy's birthday was May 21st. How about doing it then?

I think something sooner is probably better.
posted by ColdChef at 6:15 AM on February 21, 2013


I second ColdChef's emotion about sometime sooner being better. In light of that, and in an effort not to let us get bogged down in the tyranny of choices while trying to find the Perfect Time That Works For Everyone, the time that works best for this weekend is the Sunday Roast.

Apologies to Runes and Gridlock Joe, who indicated that this time wouldn't work for them.

I'm going to go ahead and revise this to reflect that date and time, and I'd appreciate it if everyone who is coming could RSVP as quickly as possible. Once we've got a head-count, I will call ahead and reserve for us.

I will be there.

Thanks for coordinating, jph! And Runes and Gridlock Joe, I'm happy to go a second time before they close if you're interested.
posted by *s at 8:42 AM on February 21, 2013


Yes, will happily go again at a later date.
posted by jph at 9:11 AM on February 21, 2013


sorry joe, runes. but good luck on the bbqing!
posted by twist my arm at 9:15 AM on February 21, 2013


Arg. Sorry all, will be on an airplane back to SD when y'all are Roasting. Have a G&T for me. I'll have one in the club room at IAH before boarding in Eric's memory.

ColdChef, if you still need crash space let me know.

And I have 2 tickets to the BBQ for Sat that someone backed out of if anyone's interested.

I won't be able to come....but I'll be lighting a candle for him.
posted by brujita at 10:58 AM on February 21, 2013


I'm in I'm in. And ColdChef we have a big (though plain) house if the family wants to come.

That "attending" is for counting purposes for the wife who will attend in my place.
posted by Runes at 4:24 PM on February 21, 2013


I'll be there.
posted by Mamapotomus at 5:00 PM on February 21, 2013


Thank you all for the kind offers, but I have found some lodging. I will defile your sofas on some other trip.
posted by ColdChef at 8:09 PM on February 21, 2013


I will be joining you guys.

My Sunday got clogged up. So I'll be missing all the good conversations. =/

Damn, I will miss you guys with the intensity of Eric in the later rounds of Trivia.

me toooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!

Photos added. It was great to see y'all, and Cindy thinks you're cool.
posted by mrbill at 1:50 PM on February 24, 2013


Was great to see everyone. Certainly it was bittersweet, without WolfDaddy there to enjoy it with us. But it was more sweet than bitter because I got to spend some time laughing and sharing stories with y'all.

Let's not let it be so long until the next time, k?
