Ok....here's the deal.......Papa Tony says we'll host a DR1 Party IF (and it's a BIG IF) HB agrees to attend. My guest room will be free after the 27th so accomodations will be ready for HB & the missus.
Now here's the cog in the wheel....this must take place by April 12th!
So HB get out your calendar and start making plans.
I need to know what day, also I'll need those who wish to attend to to RSVP so food can be prepared. Also maybe a poll on what type of food.....
Y'all have a choice of the following:
1)Italian
2)Indian
3)Asian
4)Dominican
5) International (some of all of the above)

It'll be a BYOB (Bring your own booze) and maybe a small stipend for food depending on how many are coming :) I'll provide ice and soft drinks and a jug or two of wine for supper.

If AZB RSVP's I'll definitely do a couple of authentic Indian dishes for him (may even grind some more Bengal gram to make Besan for roti).

Pool will be open and the beach is 300 ft away. We can start early and stay late. Lots of reasonable priced rooms in the area if anyone wants to stay the night in JD. I can post phone #'s if anyone wants them.

We can set up a buffet for "snacks" during the afternoon and maybe Auntie Clara and Chiri will volunteer to lend a hand in the new kitchen :lick:
I guarantee it'll be a treat for them to work in!

Maybe even Amber will show (and bring Miguel with her!!)

Anyhoo.....think about it (but not too long) and let me know!!

One of the few DR1 get togethers I have been able to make was at MommC's a few years back. I am the pickiest eater around I went back for seconds or 3rds on the roast pork! I had a great time. Met some cool people, and had a blast lstening to Amber's stories. . . . .didn't she almost Marry her cousin or something like that? ;-)

Missing it again!

I am so disappointed that I wont be able to make this DR1 fiesta! :cry: Too bad it couldn't wait until the end of May when I plan on visiting Juan Dolio! MommC...lets plan something in Southern Ontario this summer? I would love to see you again and have you meet my beautiful little Mal?a! I will be thinking about all of you and wishing I could join the festivities! Take care!

Thank you for the terrific incentive. I will certainly see is this just may be possible for either Saturday 2 April or 9 April.

I know any menu you prepare is outta sight.

Okey dokey! I'll keep both dates open 'til you decide!

One word of warning......bring pillows (preferably the ones I left at Camp David). If they are no longer usable - no problem......I have regular squishy ones on the bed at present! :classic:
As soon as you set the date I'll ask for a roll call of attendees!!

MommC's? Where? What?

MommC's is apparaently a single family home? Large? Educated guesses! Based on the evidence & comments in this string.
* But where is it? Not the street address, but what city or town. Sorry, for the stupid question. Thanks

That sounds great! I relish the chance to meet some more DR1ers! Would it be OK for an aging Naufrago, his beautiful young wife and 2 well behaved children to hang with the in crowd for a spell?

Sounds like fun !

I'll be driving directly from San Pedro, most likely around 6-7pm.

If anybody in San Pedro needs a ride, let me know.

"Juanita...I musta seen you at Mara's as I'm there almost every day!"

I for sure did not see you, it was male figures only, Italians, Americans and Germans regulars. I won't be going back till your gathering but my mother is there till Thursday, she will be easy to spot, she's probably the only Canadian female there! Big hug to mom and Mara for me! :classic:

Azb......no, you don't have to cook!

Unless you want to that is! I'm always ready to learn new dishes!
I just want to know if you're coming so I can be sure to have some Indian food on the table for you! All you have to do is tell me if you prefer Northern style or the hot Southern style of Indian food (personally I prefer the hot stuff but usually only make one dish using that method as no-one but me can eat it!!:))

If you do want to cook something let me know (by PM) what ingredients you'll need and I'll do my best to round them up for you!

Juanita PM me with your Mom's name! Did she by any chance get stung by a sea urchin yesterday?

Shaping up to be a great party!

rafael....if you RVSP I'll guarantee to roast pork for you!
Hoping BB & She who must be obeyed can make it also. Maybe a ride down with HB??? It would be very nice to have some from the north coast visit the south coast for a change of venue!

I've had a couple of emails from those who can't confirm yet but are hoping to be available that day! A couple may be a surprise as they haven't been around the board much lately.......so hopefully they'll be able to make it if they're in the country.

Should I be booking entertainment?? Now I know if Amber is around it won't be necessary but just in case she can't make it should I make arrangements??

Met Juanita's mom yesterday......very nice lady! Too bad she'll be back in the cold North when party day rolls around!

Haven't heard from Jan yet but I'm hoping she & Felix can make it! I'd be honoured to have them grace my humble home!

Beckyred.....I wish you could be here! Your little angel is precious indeed! I love the pictures you sent and Guilia says hello! She was disappointed to hear I had pictures and she didn't so she was very glad when you sent some to her!!!

I'm really looking forward to the day since this will be the first time I've hosted enmass since MI day and it feels great!!

So .....keep RSVPing and let me know what menu items you'd like to see! ;)
