Announcement: Chowhound gathering this Sunday -- reminder
I'm posting a reminder here for the chowhound chowdown this Sunday, Feb 10.
Once again, we will meet at 12:30pm at the El Farolito on 24th Street and Alabama (*not* the El Farolito on Mission on and 24th Street - make sure you get to the right branch).
Please please please be punctual -- it's tradition that the latest chowhound at a gathering gets to write up and post about the whole affair. Since we might hit several places, the last 2 hounds to arrive will get the writing assignment.
We've got a nice pack going. I've received emails from the folks listed below:
david boyk and cyrus farivar
lambert yim and wife
fatemeh khatiboo and s.o.
dixieday - I assume you're joining us based on your post --yes?
I'll be wearing the SF chowhound picnic t-shirt so that I can be recognized. [Go to this link to see what the t-shirt looks like: http://chowhound.safeshopper.com/12/2...] I strongly encourage you to put your chowhound pins and t-shirts if you have them to make recognition easier.
If you don't have them and want to be easily spotted in future chowhound chowdowns, consider getting these t-shirts from chowmarket [link below].
alas, I would love to come, but might be getting out of town that day. If I'm around, I'll definitely join you. One suggestion--I don't think St. Francis Fountain is very good anymore--if folks don't mind a walk, head over to Mitchell's instead. And check out the tamales at La Palma Mexitessen--I think they have both Nicaraguan and Salvadoran types for sale at the steam table in the back.
