I'm probably in. Honestly, I don't care which location. I live about 5 minutes away from Grapevine Mills yet I've never been to any of those restaurants.

Oooh! I'm in! I've never been to a DFW Dis meet, but I am excited to meet "obsessed" people who understand what it is like to "suffer" from this addiction :rotfl2:

Also, we are heading to WDW on Jan 30th, so it will be great to get everyone's input on what not to miss!

DS plays hockey, I'll have to see what day his game is on...let you know soon!

Saw this mentioned in a post to Froggy and Paigevz ( I know both of them) and am subscribing. Hope that is okay. There's a chance we might be relocating to your neck of the woods, and I would love to meet some Dis-ers if we do. Of course we wouldn't be there by January, but at least I'll know some names.

Sundays are better for us, so I vote for 1/13. As for where, I vote for Love & War in Texas. I've never heard of it before, but I like the name. :lmao: (What kind of food do they serve there???)

Awesome! We would love to have you join us. We are a fun group -- truly like one big happy family. Very kid-friendly. Hope to see you there! :thumbsup2

Haley Whippet is right about the noise level. But I'm glad you mentioned it because it led me to go back and find the thread from our meet there a few years back. I can't believe it's been 3 1/2 years! The kids have really grown up since then :). For those of you who are interested, below is a link to the page with pictures from it. I miss some of those people :( :

Just got invited in guys! I'll be just-back from my January trip on the 10th. I'd love to see everyone. Either day is fine, but Sunday is probably better. I live just minutes from Grapevine Mills as well and still haven't hit any of those restaurants. I do love Cozymels always. Hey, I'd be happy with Steak n Shake!

What time are we meeting?

I should be able to come, but I am really only familiar with the seating arrangements at Cracker Barrel. I've been to a different Cozymel's once about 10 years ago so I don't remember it at all. And I've never been to the other 3 places. I just know that it is nice to have some long tables or something for us all to be able to sit in the same vicinity, and also for it to be quiet enough to allow for conversation.

Kathy's birthday is the 13th and last I heard it sounds like she's already got other plans for that day :bday:.

Sunday is definitely better for us.
I prefer Cracker Barrel but I know there is a nice "private" room in the back of Cozymel's that would work well.
I will confirm closer to the time.

I have to remove my Cracker Barrel vote after today.......
We stopped in for a early dinner and were totally disappointed..:confused3
The service was horrible and the food was fair.........
I think if we went in with a large group it would take 2 hours to get served..
Cozumel's sounds nice:flower3:

Haley Whippet

Ummm most of y'all know me but didn't know i was part of the dis...lol I am mommystiegs oldest DD..... anyway we did go to a Cracker Barrel during my volleyball Season with a fairly large group and it did take FOREVER to get served. The girls of the team and a few of the members siblings were done beofre the adults even got their food causing the adults to have to shove the food down their throats in order for us to get back intime for our game.... it was quite INSANE!!
anyway so put mommystieg's party down for cozymel's

see ya soon
