Several people have asked for a Mystic in March get together. Several of us compared busy March schedules and we see that Saturday, March 12th is open for some of us. Let's set that as the date - 1:00 PM for lunch.

We just need to pick a spot to meet. Any suggestions?

I talked to Mystic Pizza. The manager is suppost to call me back this week

1pm on the 12th works for me. And Mystic Pizza sounds like a good place, pending what Mark hears from the manager.

CHRIS
02-20-2011, 07:22 PM
As of now that would work for me. I will need the break.

I have a girls night out on the 11th, I'll have to be good...:o

Works for me, I'd actually stay over night in Mystic and hit Foxwoods Saturday night. Looking forward to it....:D

Sounds like a good excuse to stay off the roads - and stay there a bit.

I just did a look up of Mystic hotels, one of them popped up $50.00 a night at the Econo Lodge, queen size bed no smoking. It's right around the area of the aquarium, can't beat that!! Walter already wants to book it!!

We always enjoy Foxwoods, I Love the Jackpot part slot. lol

What time do you work until, perhaps it can be later.:)

I'll keep this in mind; should be done with Saturday work by then. Mystic is a long, but do-able day trip. Right now hubby is recovering from a staff infection in his foot and leg. Not that we take great hikes like you all, but there's not even a short one in our future right now.

So glad everyone had a good time in NY.

mtruman
02-21-2011, 12:50 PM
We're in for this one! Mystic Pizza may be a bit small if we have a big group. One of the locations that was mentioned before (and our favorite Mystic restaurant) is Go Fish. http://www.gofishct.com/. We're in for where ever the group decides though.

Brad
02-21-2011, 02:23 PM
We are seeing several people who would like to come, but doing it on a Saturday is bad for them. How would Sunday the 13th fit in folks' schedules?

rockin rex
02-21-2011, 02:51 PM
Sunday would work better for me but I will do what ever it takes to be there. Will be in Ohio weekend before for sisters 50th birthday so have to some how work out the job thing, to make it up for that weekend to Mystic. Might be feeling a bit under the weather : )

mrohssler
02-21-2011, 02:59 PM
Sunday the 13th works for us. I said there would be between 15 and 20 people and the lady didn't seem to think there would be any problem I hope to hear from the manager soon. We can switch to the fish place if everyone would like to. When we get a count and date finalized I will call them too

mrohssler
02-21-2011, 03:02 PM
Also the same company that runs Go Fish also runs a steak place called the Steak Loft. Is is a little pricey but is excellent. I have been there often over the years

Snow Miser
02-21-2011, 03:40 PM
Sunday the 13th is okay with me too. If Mystic Pizza would end up being kind of small for us, Go Fish sounds really good to me.

Brad
02-21-2011, 04:02 PM
Here is the Steak Loft menu

CHRIS
02-21-2011, 04:45 PM
Any day and any place is good for us.

BAXTERCA2
02-21-2011, 05:31 PM
I can make March 13th.

Trailsend
02-21-2011, 06:46 PM
Sunday the 13th works me, Mystic Pizza sounds great I heard the pizza is real good.

Anna LeBlanc
02-21-2011, 09:53 PM
Sunday the 13th would be great for us and anyplace to eat would be fine with us.:D

13th is fine for us. Any destination is OK

Brad
02-22-2011, 10:24 AM
We have enough folks who say the 13th is okay for them. And I heard on Facebook there are several who would like to come and the 12th is not good. So, Chief Cheerleader Decision - we are moving the date to Sunday, March 13th at 1:00 PM.

Now for the location. We need to select a place that does not have a Brunch in my mind. Any place with a Brunch will be getting a larger lunch crowd and we might have trouble fitting.

I have heard suggestions for the Mystic Pizza (might be small) - would the original place be better or location II?
http://www.mysticpizza.com/restaurants.aspx

and for the Steak Loft
http://www.steakloftct.com/

Can someone local check these out or let us know?

KathyC
02-22-2011, 12:30 PM
A friend of mine spends a lot of time in Mystic, he said that Mystic Pizza (The original one on Main St.) added on an upstairs and they should def. be able to handle our group.

Of course, Go Fish and the Steak Loft look good too. I know that Go Fish is good because I always stop there when I'm in the area. Love the chowder!!

mrohssler
02-22-2011, 04:43 PM
Waiting to hear from the manager at mystic pizza. Do we want to try for that or do you want me to call Go Fish

KathyC
02-22-2011, 05:38 PM
Or the Steak Loft, just to make it easier.....:p

mrohssler
02-22-2011, 05:57 PM
Lets take a vote and I will arrange with the one that is picked

CHRIS
02-22-2011, 07:14 PM
I love pizza so pizza for me. But I know my wife would love seafood. So either one of those is good.

Snow Miser
02-22-2011, 08:00 PM
I vote for

http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSbikCjot3e_WEOqYX-IlFkRBG_cQLqgeWktxweZzB_4p2e6bZD

Brad
02-22-2011, 09:23 PM
I would vote for

1. Steak Loft
2. Mystic Pizza
3. Go Fish

The reason I have Go Fish lower is they advertise a Sunday Brunch. That could "get in our way". The menu for Steak Loft has good variety for people to select from. My $0.025 worth.

Trailsend
02-22-2011, 09:35 PM
I vote for pizza too.

Anna LeBlanc
02-22-2011, 09:38 PM
Gary and I will enjoy a pizza.:)

just make sure they dont mind us being there for up to 3hr and that they have room for us so we are not sitting on top of each other
im good for any place that has food any kind of food :-)

mrohssler
02-23-2011, 04:43 PM
Unfortunately I have talked to both Mystic Pizzas and this time of year they do not open their gathering rooms and they are not willing to so. We would have to go and take a chance They said they should be able to push tables together but if it gets busy we might have to wait. Guess they do not want our money. What does everyone think Should we vote for Go Fish or Steak Loft? Bummer I was psyced for Mystic Pizza

mrohssler
02-23-2011, 05:01 PM
Both Steak Loft and Go Fish can handle us. They would just like a count by the end of next week. Go Fish does not have the brunch anymore. What does everyone vote for? Go Fish said they would put us in a private room. Thet can seat 15 at one table. If we are more we will have to be at two tables. The steak loft said they can handle 20 and will put us in the main dining room and just push tables together.

mrohssler
02-23-2011, 07:06 PM
Off to pack and I'm off on my snow shoe adventure in the AM. Lets get a consensus here on a place and a head count and I will be back Monday and will cement the arrangments

CHRIS
02-23-2011, 08:17 PM
Go fish is good with us (2). Thanks for taking care of this for us.Have a great trip.

Brad
02-24-2011, 08:03 AM
My vote based on space and no brunch conflict would be Go Fish

mtruman
02-24-2011, 08:47 AM
Our vote is for Go Fish as well.

BAXTERCA2
02-24-2011, 09:09 AM
Go Fish too but, I feel like we should bring a deck of cards to play "Go Fish" :cool:

Trailsend
02-24-2011, 04:38 PM
Go Fish is fine with me.

KathyC
02-24-2011, 05:07 PM
2 for me at GoFish, love that place!

We're going up on Satuday and will make a weekend out of it...:D

Charlie
02-24-2011, 09:50 PM
ok Nancy and I will play Go Fish also

rockin rex
02-25-2011, 06:28 AM
Have to work Sun. but will try and arrange so I can have enough time to drive up after work. Only an hour and a half drive so short drive. Hope I will be able to make it up.

KathyC
02-25-2011, 04:12 PM
Hour and a half? I'd double check that. You are only a few towns away from me and it's an hour and a half to New Haven, it's 2 and a half, closer to 3 for Mystic.

Brad
02-26-2011, 09:36 AM

Remind me not to ride with Rex. Now I know where the Rockin part came from.

Go Fish is the answer. We all win. I will pull the list together based on response recently and we can get a count.

Brad
02-27-2011, 08:38 PM
Here is the start of the count for Go Fish in Mystic, CT at 1:00 PM on March 13th.

- Brad
- Charlie & Nancy
- Rockin Rex (maybe)
- KathyC (2)
- Trailsend
- BAXTERCA2
- mtruman & Nat
- Anna LeBlanc & Gary
- Snow Miser
- mrohssler (2?)
- Chris & Cindy
- jersey (maybe)


That is 16 and 2 maybe.

Anna LeBlanc

We are all set. The reservation is made and a rep is coming from the EMS in waterford

I will have to check the mileage up to Go fish. I have been up to Mystic a few times and don't remember it taking more than a couple of hours from North Jersey.

Tar Heel
03-06-2011, 09:33 AM
i have no idea who the rep coming from ems waterford is but i work there and i am on the forum and i definatly want to come. if anyone is around earlier i can lead a hike somewhere in the area in the am before the gathering. bluff point is nearby and has views of the ocean

Glad to have you join us Amy! The more from the forum (and from EMS) the merrier. If you get a group for a hike that morning we might be interested in joining. Haven't been to Bluff Point in many years but it's a great spot (and always nice being near the ocean in winter). What time would you suggest starting to get in a hike and get to GF by 1:00? Who's up for a hike?

Tar Heel
03-06-2011, 11:47 AM
i would think we could start at 1030, hike around for 2 hours perhaps so we are done at 1230. GF is like 15min away from bluff point

Charlie
03-06-2011, 08:44 PM

And tonight I'm making something little for a dessert. And only Anna knows what it is. :)

Was happy to arrange things. Was great to see everyone. Anyone have any ideas for our next get together. I would like to get some new faces involved. I was thinking of doing something maybe in lower vermont. That way maybe we could get some interest from people in vermont and new hampshire and maybe even upstate new york. Any ideas would be great.

Lower VT might be a good area. I'm only familiar with middle and upper VT, so I'm not really sure what's down there.
