    Wink2 Bay Area Lunch

    It's been a while since we've gotten together for lunch, so I figured it's about time. I recommend Grand Indian Buffet (formerly Sneha restaurant), Friday March 24 at 11:45. If anyone has a better idea, I'm open for anything.

    Hopefully I'll have that day off since work's been slow and will start to pick up next week. Indian cuisine eh? I've had Tandoor and it sure was good!

    It's early yet. I still need to notify some people that don't check in very often. I love the food there.

    The problem with a buffet that has good food is trying not to eat so much that you have to waddle out of the restaurant.

    Weevile Waddle. . .I agree with you on that. Don't feel like going back to work because after a gorging of oneself, it's siesta time. . .

    Daniel, I was hoping you could make it so PaulB and myself could share our recent import incursion.

    igabo, I normally do not encourage skipping, but in this case you'll probably learn more from the 1 hour lunch session for your life than 4 hrs of class lecture.

    Come on now. When you get right down to it, what's more important - getting an education or feeding your habit.

    Yeah, that's one reason I was considering it anyway. Just to talk "shop" so to speak.

    Daniel,

    Load up at Burger King before you come, then just come and have a cup of tea with us.

    Well, there is a job fair in Santa Clara, so maybe I'll be there after all. Do they make any indian dishes that are not spice AND don't have safron either? I'm (unfortunately) abnormally sensitive to spices.

    Who's bringing in a lathe so we can do demo's over desert?

    They have quite a few dishes that aren't spicy and do not contain safron. You can wait till everyone else gets their food, and they can be your taste testers. Then you'll know enough of the non-spicy dishes to get plenty to eat.

    I would like to go, but I have some kind of allergic reaction to curry. (cannot really even go into an indian restaurant. Maybe I will stand outside and greet people going in. I really enjoy hearing the war stories.

    I met George(taskled.com) today. Picked up some drivers that I wanted. He is a Cool guy !! I wish I can kick it with y'all on Friday. He did mention there was a gathering, but for me trying to get free time during lunch is like getting hit by lightning. If it were an evening gathering, that would be better. I love Indian cuisine. I'll eat anything. Have fun, maybe next time.

    Maybe I should have joined in on this one. I can't believe I passed up an opportunity to pig out at an Indian buffet (and if I don't eat too much, I didn't get my money's worth ).

    Actually while you guys were feasting, I drove past Grand on the way over to Tenergy's new offices. Picked up some 3V R123 batteries and a charger. But I thought of you guys as I drove by

    Yeah, y'all missed a nice, friendly lunch. We talked of lights, lathes, CNC machines, lights, food and (I think) lights. We all had at least something to share (light or story) so it was entertaining.


    Attendees: Paulb (not shown) Scott, Addie, modamag, lowbat, Jimh, Joe and myself.
    The pictures were just quick snaps, no composition etc.

    Man, you guys keep having these lunches so close to my workplace, I can almost _smell_ you. Sushi-O-Sushi was just across the street from me for your last lunch. Of course, I never get more than 10-15 min to scarf down lunch. I didn't notice any suspicious bolts of light coming from down the street.
