Update on Feb. 16th Meet-up

Wayno Jan 17, 2014 03:19 PM

I just heard from Willy, the O'Brien's proprietor. He very kindly has offered to extend to our group his $10.00 burger and beer Sunday evening special to all of the traditional food items (which are typically $14.50). Hopefully, notwithstanding that this may not be the most chowcentric of venues, our folks will be incented to spring for some pub grub. Ciao Bob, I know you said you will only drink and will eschew the food; we want you there one way or the other, but maybe you'll take a few bites. :-) And, everyone, don't forget to hit up the eVite that PHXeater so helpfully arranged, so that we can keep track of the likely turnout and so advise the restaurant. Here's the link again:

    The link doesn't work for me..... Says I was not on the list of invitees...exactly how is this supposed to work, as usually evites go by email address or actual names.....

        Click on Yes, no, or maybe at the top of the Evite link and then fill in your screen name plus an email if you want but it doesn't seem to require an email due to the manner in which Phxer devised it if I'm not mistaken.

            See Offalo's comments below.

            And then try Offslos version of the link.

            It does require an email address.

            The site doesn't open as far as yes, no or maybe when you click on Wayno's link.

          Okay, not sure what's up with your link, but I went on the original thread and was able to respond on the original evite from PHXeater's post.

          1. Ciao Bob RE: Wayno Jan 17, 2014 05:35 PM

            I'll drink a lot. And nibble. I hope what I wrote didn't make them think everyone around here is as snobby as Bobby.

              Bobby: I'm snobbier than you are.

                Hard to argue with THAT :)

                  My level of snobbiness is probably somewhere in between snobby Bobby and snobbier Westside gal.

                  Though often triple chili cheese dogs are sometimes bordering on gourmet to me (the snobby factor comes in with the requirement of a natural casing).

              Here's the full link: http://www.evite.com/event/0049POPNCP...

              Wayno must have just copied the link text, which CH truncates and puts ellipses on the end as it's displayed in the post, but the actual hyperlinked URL is longer. Best way to copy a link like that is to right-click (or Control-click) and select "Copy Link" (or equivalent).

              The full text after the "/event/" is "0049POPNCPWNZQSMAEPDPVHYY4GBXI".

                Offalo is definitely correct on that note when I tried to copy and paste a few days ago and it only copied the first part of the link.

                  I have tried to RSVP, reset my evite password and changed my listed gender from female to male - all several times. Apparently I am both a snob and a Luddite.
                  But I am coming + 1. Hold the burgers.

                    Thanks for copying the complete link; apparently my effort to copy it from PHXeater's earlier post was incomplete.
