It's kind of scary that this is actually becoming a trend. Agreed, the same people don't show up all the time, but nonetheless we're virtually expected to be there.
Anyhow, this weekend the movie "Office Space" opens (see http://us.imdb.com/Details?Office+Space+(1999) for the details) and I thought it would be really fun to cut out of work early on Friday to see it. Then I realized my car's in the shop for brake work, and I have to pick it up on Friday. Sorry folks, but having my own vehicle back for the weekend kind of trumps the coolness factor of seeing a parody of office life by playing hooky from work. So...I figured we'd see it after O'Bagelo's on Saturday. We'll figure out the showtime then--I suspect around the 2:30 or 3:00 show as we are often still pickin' and grinnin' at 1:30.
The part that isn't new, for those keeping track, follows:
For the last few weeks I've been having lunch at O'Bagelo's on State Street on Saturday at 11:30. The same people who have been going have been coming back, so I guess I'm not on crack about the food being good.
I'll be there at 11:30. For the few of you who haven't been there, it's on State Street between the Federal Building and Frontier Field. It's south of 490 and north of Andrews on the west side of the street (i.e., across from West Group on the east side.) Their sign is flush against the building so it's a little hard to see unless you're looking. They've got a variety of sandwiches on bagels, fresh bread or fresh rolls, and some soups. There are some veggie stuff too, but sometimes they don't make the fried eggplant very early. Last week John had some eggplant prepared, so it's kind of random.
Anyhow, RSVP, call, e-mail, or just show up.
