Nah, He ran when I offered to "Share the Crown" but I did see him try on the ‘Wizard’ Hat…. (Or was it the ‘Fairy Godmother’)??
We may make it to L-ville with you-all on Friday PM. Depends on when we get out of ATL on Friday.
There must be a photo tucked away somewhere of Bushie in that crown- let’s see it…
Al, how far is L-ville from Owensboro? I may make it to L-ville on Friday PM.
ALL HAIL THE KING!!!
All, I definately will be at the hotel on 2/17. I look forward to the hot brown which I have never had before.
I wanna go may be there as she has scheduled a flight into the Louisville airport. If she is available, I will pick her up and we will join all of you at the hotel. If not, I will be there. Look forward to seeing all of you there.
I will pick up a Marriott somehwere close and will meet for breakfast is that is appropiate. It dos not matter to me where as long as it is somewhere between Louisville and Evansvillle.

I edited the two posts describing the activity, thinking that would bump it up to the top of the forum, but it doesn’t. So please go back and reread the add-ons in my post with the list of attendees. Send me corrections, as you will see several folks have done just that.
Reminder on the Time-zone difference. For most of us it isn’t a ‘normal activity…but as one who lives with the ‘slowtime-fasttime difference it can be confusing.
We will have some BBQ- Roadfood Name tags and other stuff for you when you arrive…Just ask one of the staff at the Moonlite where they have seated us.
Anyone planning to be in Louisville friday evening , we hope to have a smaller group visit the Brown Hotel for a "Hot Brown" Dinner. Contact me via email if you are interested in joining the Bushies, Sundancer and Jan and I for that little informal get together. We are thinking of a 7:00PM start and an early ending due to the busy schedule for most of us earlier in the day.
We have some Motel info posted on another thread on this forum. Others are making some good suggestions there also. If you need advice, ask!!!
I forgot to mention the great potato chips donated at the Moonlight meet-up by one of our members from Illinois. They are "Kitchen Cooked" and they are great!
I am glad to hear you will be joining us on Saturday. I have a feeling that you may have the opportunity to share your knowledge of the Henderson/Evansville area during this weekend.
One other note for you travelers— Owensboro Kentucky is on Central Time, While Louisville, KY and almost the Whole State of Indiana is on Eastern Time. If you are coming direct to Owensboro from the South or West (Including Nashville TN) you will be on the correct time , but if you are coming from Louisville or 99% of Indiana you will need to remember that O-boro is an hour earlier than the rest of your trip. We have waited in a nice park by the river more than once, because we had not remembered the time difference when we left home headed for the Moonlite !!
Although I rarely say anything on these forums, as I would rather absorb the interesting conversation, I nevertheless feel that I know many of you. I have been reading many of your posts for the last six years. So I’ll be there on February 18th. I live just 30 minutes away from the Moonlite in Henderson, KY. However, if someone has time on their hands and is in the Henderson area during that time (or any other), I’ll be happy to introduce you to a couple of local culinary treasures.
Al, we hereby nominate you as "The Beef King" for the Great Chicago Italian Beef Tour.
Just an update if you haven’t caught up with the stuff on the Roadfood BBQ thread about our coming meeting.
A couple of folks are not going to be able to make it, but we have attracted the attention of some others who want to join the fun, so the group is about the same size.
I have notes (at least ‘Maybe’s) from— If I have missed someone Please tell me I am working from memory and from the posters on the thread!!

The actual dinner get-together will be at the Moonlite BBQ on Saturday Feb 18. The evening menu buffet begins at 3pm, so we should plan to get there about that time. By the time we get everyone seated and oriented (or menu-ordered for those who want to do that) it will be about 3:30pm. We will do introductions and then enjoy what the place is noted for..Burgoo and Bar B Q. After eating we can take some time to do the doorprizes and maybe look for a dessert and some take-home items from the ‘store’. BTW The weekend Dinner Buffet is @$14.00 plus beverage of choice.
If you know of anyone who would be interested in attending, roadfooder or friend of roadfooder, invite them and let me know so One-Iron can let the Moonlite know an approximate count for space needed. Be sure to tell them that door-prizes are encouraged. Half the fun of getting a door-prize is the discussion about it with the donor after the award! Also scrounge some door-prize materials. They needn’t be expensive things…just something that represents your local or regional ‘specialties. Janet and I picked up some today… BBQ Sauce, Mint-Julep Mix, We have some fun stuff to share.
Bring your cameras, we like to have plenty of visual proof of the fun to share with the folks on the website.
We are really looking forward to seeing you all at this session. As one who has attended meetings in SoCal, Maryland, and a couple in Tennessee I can honestly say I have enjoyed every one. We seem to have a good time no matter what the theme of the menu turns out to be.[8D][:D][:p]
Sheeesch Bushie, This one is gonna cost ya in the future!
The Crown comes from a "collection" of costume parts for sale in the Lynn’s Gift Shop. Luckily I wasn’t wearing the Giant Beer Mug or the Clown/Court Jester hat![8D]
