Any chance of meeting the crew in Philly?

I know that there is an ABD Spirit of America trip in May. Any chance of meeting up with the podcast crew while you are in Philadelphia? I believe both lunch and dinner on that day are on your own. It would be great if we could put together a time for DISers who aren't on the trip to meet up with those who are on the trip. This area is crawling with DIS members.

What do you think?

I am actually exploring this option for a meet.
When I know more- I will post on the boards.

I may be able to attend, though not going on the ABD trip. We are about an hour and half out of Philly.

I'm not sure if lunch on day 2 is a good option for a meet. They drop us off at the Reading Terminal Market to explore & have lunch, and then pick us back up after lunch to continue the tour. It would have to be a *really* quick meet. Dinner is probably the better option.

It would be great to meet some local folks!

It would be fantastic if there was something in Washington, D.C. I would love to help arrange something if it is possible!

Makes sense. Besides, Reading Terminal is a zoo, especially at lunchtime. Plenty of great food, though. For dessert, I highly recommend either a cannoli or the amaretti cookies at Termini's bakery.

We would love to come to a meet. We are pretty much in the middle of Philly and DC, so either would be great!!

Agree with all points made here! No real good place for a meet inside the Terminal Market, but a LOT of great places to eat. (Says someone who works 5 blocks away...)

Got to get a Roast Pork with sharp provolone sandwich from DiNic's at the Reading Terminal! Its the kind of sandwich you will have dreams about. Followed by a cone of Chocolate Chocolate Chip ice cream from Bassett's!

I was just there on a friday for lunch a few weeks ago since I had to serve for Jury Duty and it wasn't overwhelming, I didn't think. Just keep in mind it is an indoor market so it's a bit chaotic but not bad.

I personally love the Flying Monkey Bakery myself. I've been craving a cupcake or Whoopie pie from them badly enough I feel like taking the EL there just for one!

I haven't tried Termini's yet but hear good things. I'm just not a fan of most Italian deserts so I'm a bad one to ask(which is bizarre since I'm part Italian, love Italian food just not their deserts.)

I'm up for a meet and depending on where it's held I might be available to help if asked.

As I am sure most of you are aware- the May Spirit of Adventure ABD trip has been canceled.
So, I am no longer planning a meet in Philly in late May.

However, I wanted to make sure you all knew about the NJ DIS Meet Weekend - April 26-28 in Bridgewater, NJ.
There is a link in my signature for the details and to sign up.

Bridgewater is about 90 minutes from Center City- not a bad ride- especially if you make a weekend of it! We have fun planned for Friday evening through Sunday morning.

And- you will get to meet members of the Podcast Crew at this meet!! In fact, they are recording a podcast on Saturday, April 27!

So, please mark your calendars and make plans to join us in NJ!! Everyone is welcome!!
