May meeting anyone?

Spring has sprung and summer is shockingly close.
( summer already here?) and it would be absolutely
lovely to see everyone's shinning faces again. Last month
did, unfortunately, come to a close without a CC meeting
but Im pretty sure the month of April wreaked havoc on
everyone and everything. But let us see if we can meet up
this month for a lunch planning session. Im thinking:

May 15 for evening tea or dinner


May 16 for late breakfast, lunch, or tea
{I need to be home by 4 this day for a church activity}

{Im leave the 20th for the rest of the month}

Suggestions on where to eat:
Beehive tea house (SLC) for lunch or tea
Grand America (SLC) for tea
Ruth's Diner (SLC) for breakfast
The Dodo (SLC) for lunch or dinner
Cucina Deli (SLC) for lunch
"Spark" (Provo) for lunch or dinner and fancy drinks
Happy sumo or Mikado (SLC) for sushi
Anywhere with an outdoor patio too.
Please make some suggestions

As this will be a planning meeting it would be awesome
if all of you could come with at least 3 suggestions for
things you would want to learn and themes for meetings
and 1 or 2 things that you would be willing to teach or host.

Our CC activities can range from casual and small to
large and in depth, go with whatever style fits you.
Don't feel intimidated or worried about
any of your thoughts just write em down. It will be fun
to have the variety in styles.

Please comment or email me with your suggestions
and RSVPs so we can choose a definite time and place.

I look forward to seeing all of you.

I can go either of those days. So, whatever works best for everyone else.

Okay, I know I'm a "new addition" to the CC so don't hate me because I can't meet on either of the two days you suggested this week! I have work on both days during those times! (Lame I know.) I can however get together on Monday the 18th if that works for anybody but I too will leave on the 20th for the rest of the month so if we can't find a time that works for everyone in May I'm pretty open in June! I am super excited to meet everyone and start 'broadening my horizons!'
