I'm flexible on times. I've penciled (sp) in 1pm for now on my calendar just so DH knows he has the kids!

All right Moms Panel fans, are we still on for next Saturday?! It's a new year and we need new goals to make it on the panel this year

I got an email from Disney saying the Tysons store would be closing on or about the 18th for a remodel.

I'm good for Saturday. Where do we want to meet? I'm up for anything convenient to us -- Tysons, Reston Town Center, National Harbor, DC...(prefer Virginia but can do MD or DC, too).

I say we do Tysons. I think it's a good central location. Does anyone meet for lunch before hand to chat or maybe after the Disney store we can sit down somewhere?

Let's do lunch at Tysons so we can chat and get to know each other and then wander over to the Disney store.

Does that work for everyone?

I'm up for just food court or we can do a TS restaurant. It's all good.

Sounds good to me!

Where is everyone? Hello?

Ok, moving this along..here are some restaurants:

Brio Tuscan Grille
California Pizza Kitchen
Coastal Flats
Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant
La Sandia Mexican Kitchen and Bar
Luciano Restaurant & Pizzeria
Neishai Thai Cuisine
Norton's American Bar & Grill
Seasons 52 (703) 288-3852
TGI Friday's (703) 448-5470
The Capital Grille
Wasabi

If we want to keep the Florida theme, then we should go for either Coastal Flats or Season 52. However, I've never eaten at either of these and don't know prices.

Fast food court is also plentiful.

Yeah, their website doesn't list prices for the food...but the wine list shows wine by the glass averaging $12...so let's assume this is more pricey.

I'm not opposed to it but also don't need to spend $$, right before my Disney trip!

I've eaten at most of the restaurants at Tysons. I like Coastal Flats a lot, but honestly I love it for their little donut roll bread that they bring you ahead of time It's part of the Great American chain, so if you've eaten at Sweetwater Tavern, or Jackson's in Reston, it's the same thing. It's a little pricey-maybe $12-$20 for an entree, the steak I think is $24, salads-$12, but they're good.

I've never been to Seasons 52, but DH has for work. He didn't pay, but he thought he got a trout entree and it was around $15 for lunch. He said the flatbreads are really yummy.

I'm up for anything. I appreciate a good meal, but I can also do food court!

Cool, sounds like both may be around the same price then.

Let's wait to hear what anyone else thinks. I think a sit-down restaurant will be easier for us to talk and get to know one another better w/o competing with the noise and going-ons at the food court.

But either way is fine...food court or TGIF are cheaper options and they have good food, too!

My plans have changed slightly due to extended family health related issues. I may have to bring DH and DS along...would that bother anyone? If not then please put me down as a strong tentative. Then I will try to work out extended family around the meet n greet. I am very excited to meet everyone
