Ann,

I've got it all set up for you. Be at Sam Drucker's store by 7:00. Mr. Haney will pick you up and drive you to the Pixley airport where one of the Monroe brothers will fly you in a crop duster down to Little Rock.

Jim

But swing by the Douglas house on the way and have breakfast........bacon courtesy of Arnold.

Ok
 
After much discussion, deliberation and consultation with ChiBears15, I am officially in and just got my airline ticket for a whopping $156 (after using points to reduce the ticket in half) I'll be flying into Memphis
 
Our rental is going to be a whopping $110 split two ways!

All I can say is YAY!  And that goes to ChiBears15 too!!!  Heck, it'll cost us more in gas than your ticket and 1/2 rental!  But it's Glee Club and we didn't do it this year.....so looking forward to it!

A big YAY from me too, WJ.  
And speaking of hotels, where are people thinking about staying.....Little Rock or Hot Springs or ???  Or maybe just set up a tent outside Doe's for the weekend?

We will be driving, and will be looking for a pet-friendly Hotel/Motel,
hopefully one with a late night bar on premises.  Location to be determined, but I am thinking somewhere in the Hot Springs area may be worth looking into.. more later on this.

Well, if you had to get STUCK, Pittsburgh wasn't so bad.  I once had my flight from Palm Springs to Anchorage  get re-routed to nasty FAIRBANKS where it was 35 below zero!!  The next morning we couldn't take off on time because they couldn't get the engines started.  It was then 40 below.

BTW
 
Tommy's had to be one of my nastiest Roadfood experiences ever....Totally Gross!




Yeah, That's Tommy's chili. I think it's the flour for thickener, but it certainly isn't up there with real chili. It does beat Der Wienerschnitzel's though!

Janet is enjoying some BBQ at the Dinosaur in Rochester, NY this weekend with her daughter and family. I will discuss lodging with her upon her return next week. It tentatively looks like the LaQuinta in Hot Springs may be our Base for the weekend...good ratings, pet friendly, close to the three main food stops and reasonable rates. Not a final answer yet, but close...

I checked them, and United is 397.00. One was cheaper, about 340.0 w/tax, but only flies out on the 11th....I may check from Chicago instead of Milwaukee.

There is nothing tentative about it, Gary.  Like me, you are hooked on these Roadfood get togethers and I'm sure I will see you in Arkansas.
 
I purchased my flight for this.  I fly into Memphis Wednesday night and leave Sunday night.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.  Dale and I are thinking of maybe hitting Northern Mississippi prior to the official Glee Club stops...

As long as my work schedule stays the same I'll get off Monday morning at 8:30. I'll go home and sleep for a couple of hours and then I'll get on the road to Nashville. I'll spend two or three days in Nashville with family. Then I'll head to Arkansas. On the way home I'll stop in Nashville again and spend two or three days again with the family. Cousin Dina Is the best home cook I've ever met. Cousin Johnny is just a lot of fun to be around.

And here's another shot of my favorite L.A. dish, the Chili Size!

 
This is one of my favorite versions, from the Gaffey Street Diner in San Pedro.


I'm going to have the waffle house version of this in the morning for breakfast.

Ed,
 
You know I  don't doubt you, but to me it will always be a texas chili cheeseburger like the one I enjoyed in Wichita at TJ's Burger House back in August. 
 
I know you're a "sushi snob", but  still how can you pass this up? Besides like it or not, LA still takes the credit for this.
 


Aye, there's the difference. Looks like an open-faced double chili burger while the chili size serves the top bun split. Ah, those regional variations. It is interesting, because I never have seen it done the Texas way, but out here it uses one patty and a whole lot of chili. 
 
Ok, so I see in the other photo teriyaki sauce, what looks like imitation lobster, maybe scrambled eggs.......I'm guessing but it's probably a popular dish at some of these late-night teriyaki places. Am I close?
 
Michael, I can totally see your WH making one. I'll remember that next time I visit!
 
Lisa, 
This explains it all in my very own words. A chili size is definitely a knife and fork thing!


Ed, this looks like the Fresno version of a chili size. It's how I have waffle house make mine. Which I'll be having for breakfast in a few hours.

Well that didn't work out quite as I thought it would.

This is now the working thread for our Glee Club meeting in February 2015.

Mayor Al, could you tell me the dates of the Glee Club Meeting?  I didn't see them in the thread, though I believe it traditionally falls on President's Day weekend.  Would like to make it now that I have steady work.  May have plans for Florida that weekend with my girlfriend to visit her dad but nothing definite yet.

The first official meeting will be Friday evening Feb. 13th for dinner..Location to be determined shortly. Saturday the 14th will have three official meetings and several 'unofficial gatherings'. Then Sunday we usually wrap up with a breakfast or Brunch somewhere.
 
As I am sure you have read, many folks come in early..several days early in some cases, and some stay over a day or two at the end.  Thats the Basic schedule.  Janet and I will arrive early Friday afternoon and depart Sunday noonish, driving the 8-9 hour run from Louisville.
