BOL meetup - DALLAS, July 25-27th weekend, Near city center???

Let's have a meetup in Dallas! Everyone else is startin' to do it Wink

Please let me know if you're interested in coming by e-mailing me at:

boldallas (At)

Also, let me know if you're interested in a "Brunch Out Loud" event and include a favorite brunch place (preferably w/WiFi). I can't remember who came up with the concept in the chat room yesterday, but I thought it was a good meetup idea. If there's enough interest, then we'll do it.

For now, how does this sound?:
WHERE: Dream Cafe' (bistro/cafe' in Uptown Dallas), 2800 Routh St. Dallas,TX 75201
WHEN: July 26th, 5pm (they only take reservations for large parties after 5pm)

Thoughts? Post them here Happy

BOL Dallas Meetup (7/26/2008) recap...

BOL Dallas Meetup (7/26/2008) recap...

check out the recap:

also below:
Well folks, there were 4 of us that met at the Dream Cafe' last week.
I apologize for picking a place that was kinda tucked away and hard to
find if you were only looking on Routh St - I had to call them to get
when I parked on Routh St to figure out where they were.

Brian, Michael, Vic (the TX rancher-pilot) and I enjoyed some
conversation. Here's a sampling of topics covered...some more in
depth than others Wink

How freakin' hot it was that day, our daily gig, small/travel PC's,
transportation, raising goats, what exactly is a Texas ranch, HDTV's
(that are unexpectedly too big to transport back home in your car),
cool BOL listener names, Shalin's basic phone + internet tablet =
pretty decent, iPhone, Vic identifies "SMS" ring tone as Morse code
for S-M-S (*** - - ***), favorite podcasts, and the next BOL meetup in
the DFW area (maybe the new Apple store in Fort Worth?).

Thanks to everyone who had interest in attending. I understand that
the weather was really hot, which made it a bit unattractive to go
anywhere. Extra big thanks to Brian, Michael, and Vic for

The next meetup is not scheduled - any ideas? If it's indoors, I'll
bring a batch of my homemade, spiced chocolates - seriously, it's a
random talent of mine. Happy

Oh, and here's a quick link to the short Ustream video I saved off.
(note: the audio quality is pretty spotty...I'll have to work on

Best wishes,
