July 12th Vancouver BC or Seattle ????

ArtPollard's picture

There was some interest in having a CT get together in Vancouver BC where I could talk about chocolate and answer chocolate questions.

I am going to be in Seattle on July 13th for the Seattle Luxury Chocolate Salon and thought that if there was still interest, I could zoom up to Vancouver BC for a Fine Cooking CT get together. As the schedule works out, I can do it on Saturday July the 12th (but not the 14th).

Please let me know if this works for anybody and if so, I'd love to put some faces to the names I see so often. And of course, I'll bring some chocolate. ;-)

That would be wonderful.  I wonder if I could book a room at the Crotch Dog Inn for that time frame?  Surgery is August 11, so that might be my last hurrah.

Sandra is gallivanting in London then and I am attending a mystery writers get together that day.

What is this about a last hurrah?

Look, I promise to put a sign close to every pothole in the back yard, AND, will notify YVR of you comings and goings.

You know, the travel agents are highly touting the Bellingham airport now. There might be a great partner flight that MM could use with her points to get there. Heck, I'd go down to pick her up just to go to Target.

Hate to come if Susan won't be there and Peter will be gone.  Dang.  Of course, Glenys and I could drink wine...she could educate me on the finer points, and I could just chug-a-lug!

Well, let's hope that enough people find it worth attending. We still have almost a month. CookiMonster is from that neck of the woods so who knows ....

I'd love to zoom up to Vancouver and meet everybody. (Or meet folks in Seattle as the case may be.)

I'd be there in a heartbeat, but alas I'll be out of the country, and still haven't unlocked the secret to being in two places at once.

I'm trying to figure out what my schedule is right now. I have a vendor in Seattle who wants me to hang out in their store on the 12th. However, I really think it would be great to meet in person finally some of the folks from FC. 


Is there enough interest in having a get-together on the 12th? If so, I'll be there but if not, I need to know that right away.


I'm off to the Fancy Food Show in NYC where we are exhibiting (booth 3076 in case anyone wants to stop by). But if I could get final word on whether this is a go or not, that would be great.


Thanks,

I am so disappointed! I live right here,just south of Seattle and the only irrevocable plans I've made for this summer will have me in NY, NJ & New England at that time. I really wanted to meet you and other CTers and especially to learn more about chocolate. Darn!


Maybe there will be another opportunity some time.

Sorry Art. It would have been great to meet you and learn more about chocolate. Unfortunately, I'm in Philadelphia for work (side trip to NYC for vacation).

This couldn't have come at a worse time.  Everyone seems to be gone, including Sandra, who will be in England.  Any chance you can come back?  Would love to meet you, and if you're ever in NC, let me know!

I really hope there's another chance to meet with you and discuss chocolate. So sorry about the timing. I think this might be the first time that's ever happened to a CT get-together.

I'll be back. I'm not sure what my schedule is for Seattle. I will be in San Francisco the last couple days of August and first couple days of September for Slow Food Nation in case anybody is going to be there for that. (I have to admit though, what I am looking forward to most even more than the show is dinner at Gary Danko's...)

Why don't we rain-check the Vancouver BC event and plan on it later. I'm not sure when but I'll try to get back up to Seattle / Vancouver in the not too distant future. (I used to live in the Seattle area -- Snoqualmie specifically -- and so I always enjoy going back up to see friends.)

Right now, I'm in New York for the Fancy Food Show where we are exhibiting. If anybody is in NYC please feel free to call me on my cell: 801-318-9644. It would be fun to meet over at the Javits Center or perhaps for dinner.

I'll be there from July 6-16. I assume you'll be gone by then. I intend to haunt John's pizza on Bleaker St. while I'm there and drag my kinfolk into as many hole in the wall ethnic restuarants as possible. There'll be time enough to cook when we get to Ohio like last year.
