If my schedule allows it, we might grab a hotel room the night before to facilitate an earlier start.

If you drive up the night before you could kill 2 birds with 1 stone:

We will have amazing logistics for The N. Ave. F-O.
 
All of the post-McBob's stops are in an eight (8) block stretch (assuming we grab carry-out at 2 restaurants). They are all easily walk-able. Free on-street parking should be readily available on North, with even more ample free parking on the side streets.
 
About our attendees. MFL will be a part-time early attendee IrisArbor is expected around noon, and ScreamingChicken will attend (if a miracle does not occur). Who else is on the list? Can I count on the CTD/CB15 mafia to abduct DavidSanders for the crawl?
 
The itinerary is awaiting final approval by Pie Diva. Standby for news.

Is McBob's the eastern terminus of NAFO?  Or will we be blessed with visits to the Wendy's and Domino's in the 4600 and 4200 blocks, respectively?

We're in, probably from McBob's to the end.  I'm working Friday until 10pm, so not likely to get there any earlier.

North Avenue Grill is the big afternoon event.

I'm on an 8 am, noon, and 5 pm schedule. I'm holding off on breakfast to join you guys at McBobs.
I'd actually prefer the NAG but that time just won't work for me.


To accommodate MFL (& make sure that CTD gets enough to eat) we've made some adjustments.
 
Here's the plan
 
08:00 MFL @ NAG
09:00 JRP/Pie Diva/CB15 Pick-up Cranky Al's/Holey Moley donuts
09:30 Cortados at Valentines
10:00 McBob's
11:30 Gather Asian carry-out food
Noon Eat Asian food at Camp Bar
12:30 Gather more food
13:00 Rinse & Repeat
14:00 Rosebud or something
16:00 Dinner @ NAG
18:00 Frozen custard somewhere
 
The 08:00 start at North Avenue Grill is strictly optional. Pie Diva and I will give it a go. We intend to grab some donuts to eat at el Rey Cortado Opening Ceremony.
 
McBob's in the morning is superior because of all the breakfast options the have. MFL says he'll join us for a healthy tomato juice based beverage while the rest of us gorge at McBob's. I think the Asian feast at Camp Bar will also be doable for Mike and Beth.
 
We've identified 6 separate Asian restaurants (3 Chinese, 2 Hawaiian, 1 Vietnamese) in this stretch of North Avenue. The idea is that we'll draw straws and assign different restaurants to different attendees, then we will meet at Camp Bar to share the carryout food.
 
The second round at Camp likely will not happen. Red Dot and Bel Air have ample seating so we could invade each of those for a while. Stops at Rocket Baby and Indulgence Chocolates will not need to be scheduled.
 
If there is a decent film at a reasonable time, a respite from eating at Rosebud would work well. Otherwise we will come up with some other option, possible a trip to Sprecher for a tour and samples. The Rosebud Cinema Drafthouse is a unique place. Fingers are crossed for something better than the Lego Ninjago Movie (although that film could be a big draw for CB15/SC/CTD).
 
North Avenue Grill followed by frozen custard closes out the day. Or not.

Just got my October schedule, and of course I'm working Friday night.  So we won't be driving up the night before.  We'll meet y'all at some point during the McBob's stop.
 
Counting the days!

I'm downgrading from "definitely" to "maybe".  The second round of physical parts inventory at work is Oct. 13-14 and as the IT department is heavily involved it's possible I might have to go into the office, although hopefully that won't be the case.  Fortunately the second round (recounts) is a lot less time-consuming than the initial counts.

Which showing fits in best with the rest of the schedule?  I could be up for it, but Mrs. Roadhouse is not a particularly big fan of the SciFi genre.  Just checked Rotten Tomatoes; got a 95%, so that's a good sign.

My 2 cents.

If we decide on attending the movie, the 2:46 showing will be best. We'd have to eat at North Avenue Grill before the movie, but many of the other stops (i.e., Red Dot, Bel Air) are perfect for post cinema noshing.

Is there something that isn't food in the area that anyone who isn't interested in the movie could do?  

Mr. Maki might be interested- I'll ask him tomorrow.

We're on the fence regarding the movie, with Mrs Roadhouse leaning slightly away from it and me leaning slightly the other way.  It might be nice to take that three hour break, although I'm not sure I'd stay awake the whole time.  abe_froeman raises an interesting question; is there a way to satisfy everyone for that late afternoon slot?  Some folks go to the movie, while others can strike out on their own and we all meet up at Red Dot, or somewhere else at 5:30.  Is that a possibility or does that throw your tour into a tailspin?

Looks like the mall has a Barnes & Noble, so that would probably work for me.  

Mr. Maki is interested in the movie, so include one for him if we do it.
 
Hold on...he neglected to mention to me that he may have something else going on that day and I told him he needed to choose one or the other.
 
When do you need a decision about the tickets?

This might work if the Roadhouse Clan is evenly split.  Mr. Maki and I can attend the movie while abe_froeman and Mrs. Roadhouse kill some time at B&N.

There has been enough interest in movie attendance to make this the plan.
 
08:00 Breakfast with MFL @ NAG
09:00 JRP/Pie Diva/CB15 Pick-up Cranky Al's/Holey Moley donuts
09:30 Cortados at Valentines
10:00 McBob's
11:30 Gather Asian carry-out food*
Noon Eat Asian food at Camp Bar
13:00 Lunch at North Avenue Grill
14:30 Rosebud for Blade Runner 2049
17:30 Red Dot, followed by Bel Air Cantina
19:00 Frozen custard somewhere
 
The 08:00 start at North Avenue Grill is strictly optional.
 
*Pie Diva is preparing 3x5 cards for 5 different Asian restaurants. They will be assigned at random with instructions to bring the SUGGESTED food to Camp Bar at Noon. Trust me, it is unwise to argue with PD.
