As long as all of you understand how difficult it will be for me to eat somewhere other than the RedEye Diner.

actually that is a great option. its one of the few places in Epicenter (now known as queen city quarter) still open. Its a diner. so typical food. epicenter is sadly mostly a ghost town at the moment so it shouldn't be packed. wont be hard to get a table

so options:
the cajin place
monarch
red eye diner

RedEye doesn't have a lot of big tables. If there are more than five or six of us, I don't think it would be viable.

lets set this in stone. who's coming, where and when? if we end up doing the cajin we'd need reservations, if monarch or anywhere lets still discuss

Yes! We need a count of how many people we are going to have, as well as some cool hobbyists that I may bring as well.
The smaller the group, the better chance we have on getting any reservations (CQ or RED?) and the larger the group, we need to find a place (Monarch?) that will accommodate a lager party.

If there are no posts soon, I will get with @power_struggle55 and we will make the final decision....

Don’t know if anyone will be working the con. Saturday the con ends at 6. We could meet at the CBCS booth and work our way to Monarch from there.

that is a good idea. I think Monarch is best option. it has a variety of different places so we can all get what we'd like. there are plenty of tables (again think of it as a food court scenario) if by chance we cant get a table they do have takeout and there is an outdoor area with plenty of tables

I am going to be at the con with my wife, 7-year-old, and our twenty-something roommate (who is kind of like another child), so I can't commit to anything requiring a reservation. I may not be able to wander off by myself, or I may be dragging extra humans along. As much as I would like to do a sit-down dinner, I think the Saturday at the food court type place is the best, most flexible option.

so lets agree to meet up at Monarch. as I said its a food court like place. so a bunch of choices, seating and an outdoor bar. we can meet up at the bar after the show.

I think its best as some might not want cajin, or drive, you pay upfront when you order. so can leave anytime you want without waiting for the check.

If you want to know what places the got. they have:

we are 12 days away. we need to finalize when and where?

Lets just call it. Monarch, Saturday. con ends at 5pm (vs 6pm) so we will have better luck if we do Monarch

lets meet either at the cbcs table or at the bar at Monarch (its an outdoor one)

I agree!
I think we should meet at the CBCS booth 15 minutes before the con ends.
Thoughts or commitments?

Sounds like a plan.

Sounds good, Saturday 15 min prior at cbcs table monarch

Now price wise if you get a full meal will be around $20 depending on where at monarch. No need for a tip as you order at the counter and you pick up food but they do clean table

I've eaten at Monarch twice. they got a really good burger place. as Ive also stated there is a bar outside as you enter. but official name is Monarch Market. its right on Tryon. hard to miss on the street. Its been open for less than a year.

I think this is best. its short walk from convention and near most of the hotels. I'm sure most of you don't want to drive anywhere and want to be near their hotel.

Meeting up at the CBCS booth 15 minutes before the show ends sounds like the best option after reading through the thread.

I would suggest we do so on Saturday but we could always do it Friday if more people would prefer it.

I would like to do the meet up once we are all on the same page.

I think sat is the best. show ends earlier.
