    Default SF Bay Area Mongolian BBQ Lunch

    It's over a month since Christmas, and flashaholics have had a little time to add new items to their toy collections. We want to see what you've been using to feed your addiction, so this is a call for a show and tell lunch.

    The place:
    El Camino Mongolian BBQ
    (408) 241-2413

    3380 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA 95051

    For those of you that have not had lunch with us here before, let me tell you this is one of the friendliest restaurants in the Bay Area. The food is great, and the owners always express an interest in our flashlight show/display. This is definitely a flashaholic friendly place.

    Date: Thursday, Feb 14, 2008

    Time: 11:45 If you show up any later, you will just have a much longer line to wait in.

    Please make a post here so we know how big a table to get - the place fills up quickly after 11:45.

    On the contrary, I'm trying to save you from getting castrated.

    The date was picked on purpose to save all you misguided souls who think they can cheap out by taking their sweetie to lunch.

    There's nothing romantic about lunch. Please keep your love life alive and pop the extra scheckles for a romantic dinner

    For those of you who absolutely must take your sweetie to lunch on Valentines day, bring her along. That way you can prove that there are actually people who are crazier than you are.
    Heck, next to the rest of us you will appear almost normal

    I'm right at the corner of El Camino & San Tomas right now...but I can't make it for Valentine's Day. Hopefully there will be another get-together in the area on another day, preferably one that doesn't coincide with a major holiday.

    We actually don't do dinner on Valentine's Day, traditionally. Well, we do, but we keep it at home. Trying to get a table on Valentine's Day is hell, and neither one of us enjoy crowds.

    We keep it at home, and usually make the next weekend night a "night out"

    BTW, I'm definitely in. Finagled the time off today. Boy, do I have a super sweet light to show you guys...

    I popped a link on EDCForums about the get-together. Had one bite, but he/she isn't registered here and wants to see lights and knives and stuff...

    So I guess that's another showing up...possibly. I don't the know the responder personally

    Darn, I'll miss another great get together! Oh well, that means there's more time for everyone to collect more toys for me to drool over. Have a great time.

    Duane,

    Give me a break - you're retired. What could be more pressing than to come to a CPF lunch.

    However, I can somewhat empathize - since I retired my free time has all but evaporated. On the other hand, my schedule is much more flexible.

    I'll put you down for a place at the table. This looks to be a great chance to get together with old friends from the far reaches of the bay area.
