We are trying to plan a DISMeet in Indianapolis!

I am performing in Indianapolis Civic Theatre's "Thoroughly Modern Millie". I'd love to get some DISers together to come see the show then go out to eat afterwards.

Here are the available dates (I chose ones with Matinee times, as I think these would work best)

Sunday, March 9 2pm
Sunday, March 16 2 pm
Saturday, March 22 2 pm


Please vote for the date that works best for you. If any of them work, don't vote, just put that in your response!!

If you don't want to see the show, you can always join us for food. I will make reservations around 5pm.

The show is on the North side of Indianapolis, easily accessible from I-65. As I find out who is interested, we can decide on what kind of meal (fast food, sit-down, etc.).

Here is a link to Indianapolis Civic for ticket info. I will find out if there is a group discount that we can get, but we need to do this quickly, as matinees sell out fast!

Anyone interested?!?! Let me know as soon as possible!

are we the only indiana dissers.:confused3


the first two dates would not work for us, we are going to be out of town, and the last one is getting close to DW's due date, so i would hate to commit to something and then her not feel like taking the drive to come down.

sorry.


i am glad to read along with this thread, hope some indianaians come and join the fun.
:yay:

Well, if you guys feel like it, you can drive down for dinner... that's something you can do spur-of-the moment if you wanna!! Of course, a few hours in the car with a very-pregnant belly is NOT fun!! But we'd love to see ya!!

Seriously.. I thought there were more Hoosiers out there.. maybe they are too busy cleaning up after wind, floods, tornados, etc...:confused3

Not sure about the show but would love to meet for a meal...I think we could do the 9th or the 22nd.:thumbsup2 "We" being me, dh, and dd, 10.

I put a post on the budget and dvc boards, hopefully that'll direct some people this way.

Maybe another time! :goodvibes

I haven't hung out on the DIS for a couple of years, just got too busy. But I cruised on today and saw this notice for Indiana folks. I'm in South Bend and I am a pin trader. Anybody down there in the group that trades pins? I get to Indy about every 6 weeks, but I'm not sure right now if I could make it those days. I'll check the calendar.

Thanks for the responses, guys. Keep letting people know about this thread and we'll see what we can make happen.

For those of you unable, thanks for stopping by anyway.. maybe another time!!

Not sure about the pin traders out there.. I don't trade pins (yet..!).. but maybe someone else does? Dan?

Hi Sooze, southsider here, I also work weekends, but usually done around 4 or so, thus dinner could possibly work out. Been checking out your trip reports, thought our family was big Disney fans until I found your family. One question if I may, your DH is a band director, which school? I have 2 sons, one is a junior at Center Grove and has been in the marching band for 3 years( thus I understand your comment about being a single mom:lmao: ), the other is and 8th grader. Next year I'll have 2 in the Marching Trojans. Avon's band is unbelievable, they are certainly the best band in our area, although CG gives them a run for the money each year. I'll keep watching this thread to see which date you pick and then try to make the dinner part of the day. If we can all make it, there would be 4 of us. I'm sure my boys would love to talk music with your DH.:goodvibes

HEY THERE! Welcome! DH is one of the band directors for Avon High School. We got there in 1996, so we've seen them come from a terrible, barely-make-it-to regionals band... just blossom into this incredible program. I work with the color guard, so I stay quite involved. I love Center Grove! I had a friend who was a middle school band director there a few years back.. Mr. Whalin...? Sound familiar...?

Anyway.. we'd love to have you for dinner.. Stay posted for dates!!

Hi Fellow Hoosiers!

I don't think I could do the show, but definately could meet somewhere for lunch or dinner.

Some of the folks in this thread I've already met and would welcome meeting the rest of you. Thanks to good friends of ours I was able to find this thread. Just say where and when and I'll bring the rum. :laughing:

Sooze,

I'm not sure what our schedule is in March yet, but we'd love to meet somewhere for dinner, if it works out. Just let me know.

Also, I know one of the middle school band directors in Center Grove -- Mike Bolla? I think he's at North??

Hey y'all!

Okay, it's been a week, so here's what we'll go with:

Saturday, March 22
2pm Matinee show
5pm dinner

Here are the folks I think are interested. I also put a number by your screen name for the number of people attending. If you didn't indicate a number, I just put 1. Please let me know if more will be coming, so when I make dinner reservations, I can give a solid number.

DINNER ONLY:


simzac (4)
ADP (3)
ncsjodi (2)
mickeefan (1)
luckymomoftwo (4)
powellrj (2)
mkycrzy1971 (1)

SHOW and DINNER:

danny1649 (1)


NOT SURE:

jennz (3)
dusty

Here's the deal with the show. I don't think we'll have enough people to warrant a group discount. So if you want to go to the show, visit the website below and order yourself some tix!! I would get on it quickly, too, because a Saturday matinee is hard to come by!! I will not be hurt if you don't come to the show!! But I'd sure love it if some of you did!!

As soon as the show is over, we'll head to dinner. I have not investigated restaurants yet. Any ideas? Do we want an "Applebee's", "Steak n Shake" or "Bravo" kind of meal!?!

If something changes and you need me to switch your status on the above list, just PM me, or let me know on the thread and I"ll keep it as updated as I can!

Here's the website if you want to get ya some tickets!

OK, ADP. I have to ask... where in Fishers are you? We live in Fishers as well, in the northwest corner (Allisonville Road & 141st Street). And I have a DD6 in first grade at Harrison Parkway Elementary.

Sooze, I'm not sure what our plans are for March 22nd, but I'm hoping all four of us can come to dinner. I'm penciling in our calendar, but I'm never sure what's going to come up with DH's many hats. The girls and I will try to come, even if DH can't. I know that my DDs would love to meet your DD. They just love little ones!

02-16-2008, 10:55 AM
Got the changes! Thanks! I'll be investigating the closest Applebee's-type restaurant in the area (trying to avoid 38th Street:scared: ) We might actually head further up north (which might help the Fishers-cluster;) )

Hey ncsjodi -
We are at 141st and Cumberland Rd. We are not too far from Jennz either. DD7 attends Cumberland Rd. Elementrary; 2nd grade.

Sooze - Just a suggestion, but if the group size continues to grow maybe we can look into getting a party room at one of the restaurants. Some restaurants will let you reserve the room for free. If you need some help with anything let me know.

Its strange how you just stumble onto things!! Ds was just asking me the other day when the next DIS meet was that he was wanting to go back to one!!

We live in Anderson and would love to attend! The last one we attended was last year at Loon Lake Lodge and they had a room for us. It was really nice!

Show Choir season will be over by the 22nd so we would love to attend. Add 2!

I thought we had something in common and after checking your trip reports I know we do. I'm also a band director, write drill, and have known you and your family for years. I live in Mitchell with my wife, who use to do color guard and have spent quite a bit of time with your husband over the years. I'm sure you have put it together by now. Small world....

Give everyone my best, and good luck with the performances. I would love to make it up for a meet, but I'm sure you know that my schedule would make that pretty tough to do.

Give everyone my best and Go Black and Gold.

We are heading to World in March and can't wait.

The reservations are under "Susie Harloff".

I will probably be running a bit late, as the restaurant is farther away from the theatre than I had hoped... but you can start celebrating without me, and I can make my grand entrance!!

My fav...we were just there 2 weekends ago! Good Dis friends and good food, what more could we ever possibly want?

Sooze

Yum! We love Buca's but rarely go...it might be more than Applebee's but you get enough food to choke a horse! Do we have the Pope room? How would that be for the night before Easter? :thumbsup2 (I don't think the Pope room is that big though)


True.. lots and lots of food! The lady helping me said they have two rooms..one that holds over 100 and a smaller one. I opted for the smaller one... we'll see if I made the right choice or not... but she never did say anything about the Pope...:confused3

HOOSIER DISMEET
Saturday, March 22, 2008
5pm
Buca Di Beppo
6045 East 86th Street
Indianapolis, IN 46250


Click below for web site with directions, maps, menus, etc.

Bucca Di Beppo Information (http://www.bucadibeppo.com/locations/location.aspx?location=1402)
I have reserved TWO 12-top tables (for approximately 24 people).

The reservations are under "Susie Harloff".

I will probably be running a bit late, as the restaurant is farther away from the theatre than I had hoped... but you can start celebrating without me, and I can make my grand entrance!!

SEE YOU SOON!!:banana:

That sounds good, Sooze. Plus, it's in my neck of the woods. Didn't realize the first time I read this that it's the Castleton location. Our church is right across the street from the mall! I'll have to check with Eric to see if he wants to come along or if he'd rather stay home with the girls. I'll let you know.

Ok, two questions...
1. Are most of you planning on leaving the kids at home or bringing them with?

2. Is anyone from the NW Indiana area going?

My situation is tricky since I'll be coming from a show and leaving to go back to the show. If that weren't the case, I'd definitely be bringing the kids. Right now, it will depend on DH... if he can come and if he wants to drag children along... we shall see!

2. Is anyone from the NW Indiana area going?

Not sure about this one... anybody?

Wow, I just was thinking to myself, I wonder if any of the Hoosier Diser's get together anymore and what do you know, I found a thread about exactly that topic.

I need to check with DW this evening and see if this is something that we want to do. :goodvibes

We live in Logansport now, but we did live in Noblesville for about 5 years from 1999-2004.

How quickly things can change. Did our taxes today, and the news is not good. We owe over $1300 this year total. So have to cut out all unecessary spending immediately to pay them by April 15th. Thus I have to cancel our family for the meet. Hope everyone has a great time. I'll be thinking of you all that day. Bill

Ladies and gents... I just found out last night that my time with you all will be VERY short. They actually encouraged us NOT to leave the theatre in between shows!:scared1: I am allowed to leave to visit the Hoosier DIS meet.. but will be brief in my attendance!!

Is someone willing to order for me?! I will be showing up after 5.. close to 5:30 and will need to leave shortly after 6. If my food is on its way, that'll help me a lot!

Sorry.. I tried to plan this in tandem with my shows.. but it has turned against me...:sad2:

I'm going to check out the on-line menu and put my order on here. Hopefully someone can grab it and order for me!

Thanks everyone!! See y'all tomorrow!

If possible, could you grab me:

Diet Coke
Chicken Saltimbocca

if they don't have the chicken Saltimbocca, I'll just do Chicken Parm

I am so sorry that I did not make the meet...I had every intention on coming and came down with the flu on Friday about 11pm...I was in bed (and the bathroom :scared1: ) all day Sat and finally started to feel better Sunday night. I realized I had missed everything when I finally got my mind back late last night, I was so mad at myself! Again, I am sorry...both that I did not get to meet everyone and that I did not contact you to let you know I would not be in attendance. I hope you all had a blast...maybe we can do it again when you will have more time to visit with everyone.

Well, I finally got around to pulling the pics off of my camera, so I thought I should post them. I didn't get pics of everyone, but wanted to share the few that turned out well.

First, here's a view of the end of the table:

http://dis.northcomp.com/dismeet.jpg
From LtoR: scarlett873 (Brandie), WDWBetsy (Betsy), Betsy's DD Aubree, Sooze (Susie), Betsy's DH (Jon), ADP (sorry, didn't get your real name).


Here's ADP, DW and daughter Anna:

My DD6 Lauren really enjoyed sitting next to Anna. They worked the puzzles on the back of the menu and had lots of fun talking about mutual interests and school.

Finally, a picture of my girls and Aubree.
