It's that time again for all good RedsZoners to get together before the season starts and have a few adult beverages (or apple juice if you're Krono) and watch the Reds play.

The Reds will be playing the Phils at 1:05 p.m. on March 24th. We usually get together at Willie's on Montgomery Road and get in shape for the regular season. Some years we've had a lot of folks come out, others, not so much. But it's always a good time. It's not really necessary to say you're going to be there in advance but we'll need some kind of idea on how many tables we need to reserve.

Don't you know it's bad form to sticky your own thread?

For shame.

You can unsticky it and you can re-sticky it if it's that big of a deal for you. :mooner:

I'll just need one table, but I want it off to the side.

Call and find out. Isn't Willie on the radio now? You could call the show and ask him. ;)

By the way, it's not always a good time. There was the time Chip took off his shirt. That sucked.

Sorry, Krono. It looks like Willie's serves Pepsi products. Which means.....Sierra Mist.

If it's any consolation, it won't be the worst-tasting thing on the menu.

I thought I'd post a few pictures from some past outings so you can see that we actually do have some fun at these things.

This first one is Boss with all his friends. :devil:

Chip R
03-07-2007, 03:55 PM
This next one is supposed to be Cougar Quest but he doesn't like his face shown. So I just substituted Raisor's face instead. It's actually an improvement.

I think the creek clan might be in.

I'll do my darndest to make an appearance. Need to consult the family calendar (aka my wife).

A 1:05 start though, it will be sodey pop for Roy.

If you've never been, it's a good time.

Of course, I'll be there!!! I'm going to check out The Porch of All Sorts off of I-71 and Fields Ertel to see what they have to offer tomorrow night. Even tho' Willie's is very accommodating, their menu leaves something to be desired.

OK...I went to the Porch of All Sorts:

The good news: Food was decent, no-smoking ban yet and they serve Coke products.

The bad news: The layout of the business is odd. Only one long table with stools and not in view of a TV. They do have two large projection TVs and two bars.

I wonder if we change Willie's locations? Instead of Montgomery. how about the new one in Mason (Arbor Square)? It pretty easy to get to from 1-75 and looks like good parking.

Discussion?

Thanks!

Coke products?

Well you know what I'm voting for :)

KittyDuran

Coke products?

Well you know what I'm voting for :)I know, sweetie... but the one good thing about Willie's is that they are very nice about us having one TV tuned to the Reds game. Remember this is March Madness time and most of the patrons are probably going to be there to watch those games... and if XU, OSU and UK get in...:eek:

Has the location been decided? Willies? Porch? Krono's house?

I say Krono's house. I'm sure he's aching to show off his Geo Metro he's pimped up. ;)

It appears Miss Kitty has pulled a disappearing act. She hasn't been on here for a week. It doesn't appear the Porch of all Sorts may be the best for our bunch. She mentioned the Blue Gose in Sharonville but I've never been there. If I don't hear from her by Monday, I say we try the Willie's in Mason.

I thought you would be trying to find a place with squeeze catsup vs a bottle that needs to be opened. :p: :p:

You never call... you never write... ;) I figured that's where you disappeared to.

Montgomery or Mason? Either is fine with me but you make the call.

OK... it's Willie's in Kenwood on Montgomery Road from noon until 5pm (or until the end of the game). I reserved tables in the back for 12 and asked for at least one TV turned to the Reds game. Name on reservation is Redszone (Cathy) - or just go on back...

I'll try to get there before noon.

It figures that the one picture you post is of me either vomiting at one of Team Clark's stories of one of Juan Castro's bouts with Montezuma's Revenge or eating something very, very hot.

Geez, Kitty, they forgot about us. I started the ball rolling and you handled the logistics. Maybe we should just get a table by ourselves.

Hope everyone had a great time! I am sure you did from the past gatherings I have been to. We had good intentions to be there. I went to bed a bit under the weather last night and wasn't feeling much better this morning. Not sure yet if it's a cold or allergy's. I am leaning more towards allergy's though. Didn't think everyone would enjoy me sneezing and blowing my nose all over the place every fer minutes. YUCK!! My eyes look and feel like I haven't slept in a week.

Poor TC is still dealing with fun family stuff:( .

Can't wait to hear the details & fun stories:)

Atendees were Newport Red, Mrs Krono, Krono, Kitty, Redsland, Chip, creek jr, mr creek, and me.

We ate. We drank (water, pop, beer). We chatted. We laughed (come on, Redsland was there and he's as funny in person as he is in print). We questioned the front office. We questioned Jerry Narron. We cheered the Reds. I lusted after Adam.

It was pretty much like being on the board, only in 3D.
