    Our December get-together will be Friday, December 19 for Zoo Lights at the Memphis Zoo.

    We'll meet at the front gate of the zoo at 6:30pm. Tickets are $7. If you have a zoo membership, the cost is $5 per ticket.

    We'll grab dinner after our trip to the zoo. Any suggestions on restaurants?

    Hope to see everyone there!

    I'm going to see your Xmas lights one day!

    //waves vodka glass for emphasis

    I saw the National Lampoon Xmas when I was in NY last month. And a picture of some house covered in Xmas lights that reminded me of you.

    Don't forget that Zoo Lights is next Friday. The weather forecast for next Friday is looking a bit iffy at the moment. Rain = No Zoo Lights

    If the weather doesn't cooperate with us, are there any alternatives we'd like to consider or just meet for dinner?

    That would be fine. If could get a count by that morning, and if everyone's cool with it, I could make us reservations for Nagasaki. (Everyone get coupon! I mean... Everyone go get a coupon.)

    They always have them in the Commercial Appeal's Playbook section on Friday.

    Funny that Emma and Rachel were just asking to go to Nagasaki this weekend.

    Well, right now it looks like Friday's going to be 44 degrees with a 10% chance of rain, so I'm going to go ahead and get our tickets online so I don't forget... :p I think the Entertainment book has Nagasaki coupons, too, right?

    Do we want to make reservations for Nagasaki at 8:30 pm, then, or do we want to go elsewhere?

    I think I'll buy our tickets when we get there.

    I'm good with Nagasaki at 8:30. We can always just go there if the weather is bad.

    Rhonda
    Mike
    Kevin
    Traci
    Me
    Emma
    Rachel
    Kelly
    Robert


    Did I miss anyone?

    I'll make the reservations tomorrow for Nagasaki. I'm looking at a count of 11 people right now based on the list above. Is this still correct?

    I went ahead and got my tickets online. Gotta love click and print, and unlike Ticketmaster, you don't have to pay $4.00 to do it. (I hate Ticketmaster with a passion.)

    *Sigh*

    Mike has to work 2 - 10 pm tomorrow night. (We thought he had to work 10 - 6a, then that changed, then it was 7a to 2p, now it's 2 - 10 pm) Remind me to tell you about his first work of week. [face_plain]

    I guess I'll go on and do the online thing, and go through will call. It'll just be me.

    That sucks, Roo. We all have to find a better get-rich-quick scheme. This "working" thing isn't... well... working.

    That was a lot of fun. And I'm glad the weather cooperated.

    I wish we could do Graceland some Christmas as a group, but we'll all have to save up. It's around $30 just to see the mansion and the lights.

    I wish you could've been there, Grace. It was a lot of fun. And I think our Chef at Nagasaki was stoned. (Or maybe he was just a Noob. Or maybe both.)

    o_O With all the blade twirling and heat, I'm almost glad I couldn't make it. Sounds hazardous to one's health. :p
