DISmeet - Cheesecake Run

We had a little mid-Atlantic DISmeet last night, as a few nearby DISers met at a local Cheesecake Factory restaurant for some food and fun. We had 3 DIS families from Delaware and Judy and I were representin' Pennsylvania.

I'll introduce the players as they come up in the pictures. So, with that, it probably won't surprise you that my first photo was....

...my food!

Well, actually Judy's too. She had the tuna tartare, on the left. She always gets an appetizer for her entree at the Cheesecake Factory so that she has some room for cheesecake afterward. She's pretty smart, that girl. I had the chicken bellagio, on the right, shared a couple of bites with Judy and still had leftovers to take home. Which I plan to eat after I get this post submitted!




Sorry, most of these pictures were taken with my phone, and it must have been a tad dark for it.

Sitting across from us, we had DISers Mrs. Knowitall and Captain_Oblivious, known in real life as Julie and Mark.



It was pouring-down rain on the way to the restaurant, so we said it was fitting since when I last met with Mark (at the same restaurant), it was nearly a blizzard outside.

And we also had MEK, Mary Ellen, and her husband Denny.



Sorry Denny -- I'm really, really good at accidentally catching people taking a bite of food, and we'll see more evidence of that later.

And last but not least, we had Dawn, chloe770.



By the way, Judy and I know the guy in the upper left of this picture (over Denny's shoulder). Mark said that he would not sing the song that comes to mind....You know the one -- "It's a sm..."

After some great conversation and with our main course finished off, we asked our server to take a group picture.



Then of course we had to have some cheesecake. I got the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Oh yeah. I still have half of this to eat, so I'm trying to hurry up with this post!



Here's Julie and Mark enjoying their cheesecake. Whoops, I caught Julie mid-bite....sorry!



And I was able to document Mary Ellen's first-ever bite of Cheesecake Factory cheesecake. Not everybody has the good fortune to have a photographer on hand for an occasion like that -- you're welcome MEK!



I guess I spared Dawn a mid-bite picture.

Well anyway, it was a really nice evening with some good food, good conversation, and great people. I'm glad we could all get together!

All the more reason to travel the world. Or at least other parts of the south.

Great meet! Bet there was a lot of fun, great food and amazing conversation!

Now that I'm in the hunt... and at the risk of Rosie's wrath... I think 1 Judy is up for grabs, so if it is, that's what I'm going with (Group picture)

No wrath or as Dan would say rath I just am trying to out smart the Rules committee , now I noted NO Vera purse but the smear in that corner could well be part of Judy's something , I saw No Judy reflections in cheesecake , but Marv prolly will !!

Yes, two Judy's!!!

Sorry Rosie picked up on that one of her white skirt in the first pic (or is that a napkin). Of course the finger and fingernail are more definitive....

I had a feeling you were going to post an update, and dang if you don't do it as I am posting a comment response to Dan and I failed to notice it!!!

Didn't need one. Saw it in the picture, and then reading the update pretty much confirmed it. I guess the Rules Committee informed Glenn to make clearer references to avoid the challenges. Since he said that Judy's tuna tartare was on the left, and his chicken was on the right..........pretty much a given.

Woot woot!! Cool Dis meet! Great pictures! Seems a good time was had by all!!!

Loved your intermission! The light show was fantastic and very cool how you got the self portraits! The light pictures would make great posters!

Too cool seeing Bruce! It's been..... well we shall say, several years since I've been to one of his concerts. Another chance for Lauren to tell me how old I am.

We moved to Central TX about 6 or so years ago. I didn't get a chance to go to San Antonio until 2 years ago. South Austin and San Antonio has Carls Jr., which we are used to. East of TX we were ecstatic to find a Hardees on our way to WDW on our first trip!! Same great food and yellow star, so we were happy!!
