    Would there be no way to do it for lunch so this that drive wouldn't be driving at night to go home?

    Thanks for the offer! PM sent.

    I know there's a Mexican restaurant behind the mall that was good the last time we ate there. Not so sure what other places there are, Hattiesburg changes frequently between visits.

    I am definitely planning on being there. I have an out of town conference that week and that's the only concern I have! I think it would be so fun to meet fellow Mississippi Disers!

    I guess where we meet would depend on how many are coming. Since I live in the Hattiesburg area, I can do whatever we need to find us a place if everyone is okay with that. Let's get a head count to begin with. If you are willing, either PM me (or email to saintstickets@yahoo.com) with how many are coming and we'll go from there.

    Just saw in Facebook Rocket City Diner is closing as if November 12 so that would be out! I am not sure of other places in Hattiesburg but friends have recommended Coopertown.

    I agree...Rocket City Diner is not that good and is probably why they are closing.

    I assume most people will be coming in on US49 so the restaurants easily accessible are -

    Sakura (Japanese)
    Glory Bound Gyro Co (Greek - previously called Old Athens Grille)
    LaFiesta (Mexican)
    Villie's (Subs/sandwiches/burgers)
    Bakers Burger Co (Burgers/hot dogs)
    McAlisters Deli (Subs/soup/sandwiches-Just off US49 on Hardy St)


    There are many, many more along US98 and downtown but I was just trying to make it easy to find. If those strike anyone's fancy let me know. If not enough interest, I'll expand the options. If everyone wants something more upscale, let me know that as well.

    Villie's is a good sandwich place and I think they have a back room.

    McAllister's is always a good sandwich, salad, etc.

    Baker's Burger Company is decent. Kinda like a 5 Guys burger place, same concept.

    Mexican is always old, don't think I've been to that one.

    If other kids are coming, need to make sure the place has something kids will like.

    Meant to say that Mexican is always good, not old like autocorrect made it.
