a day in the strip

Post  catherine ch. on Fri Mar 28, 2008 5:17 pm

we already spoke abt it with other members....
we would like to organize a day in the strip district
there are -like you know- a lot of very good shops there...but it would be great if everybody gave her best addresses to the others.....for ex the japanese ladies could tell us which japanese grocery is the best.....
so what we could do is that we aould do some shopping in the morning and after -around 12.30 maybe- we would go eat all together...
the ladies who would come would have to give advice to the other ladies ...for ex to give at least one good address to the others and we would go and visit the shop...
i propose to do that on the tuesday 22nd
or the wednesday 23th of april

tell me if you are interested....
and after that visit ,in may or later , we could go to the discovery of other good shopping places like butler street(i 'm never been there) or sewickley ,or good addresses on mcnight rd(not the mall..) or.....

i'm waiting for yr reactions

Hi Catherine,

I'm interested in it!
I always want to know the different foods, groceries, and cookwares from different countries. In Strip District, I only know Chinese grocery store! tongue I heard there is a African food shop, a Italian store...but I haven't been those stores.
It's a good chance to go, isn't it? Please count me in~
Thank you.

It sounds interesting. I never visit other stores except Lotus, Yong-Fat, and Wholey(?, the fish store). Only one time to the middle eastern store to find out grapes leaves and tahini after our Turkish cooking class. If we meet before 12pm, April 23 is best for me.

I THOUGHT THAT WE COULD MEET IN FRONT OF PENNMACARONI FOR EX AORUND 9.30...GO TO DRINK A GOOD COFFEE AND BEGIN JUST AFTER...
EVERYBODY WOULD GIVE HER BEST ADDRESS IN THE STRIP....AND GIVE ADVICE ON WHAT IS THE BEST IN THE SHOP OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT
AND AROUND 12.30 WE WOULD GO AND EAT SOMETING TOGETHER FOR THE ONES WHO CAN STAY...

I HOPE THIS WILL PLEASE THE MAJORITY....IF SOMEBODY HAS ANOTHER SUGGESTION....

CATHERINE


PS IF SOMEBODY HAS QUESTIONS...JUST FOR THE INFO I'LL BE OUT OF TOWN BETWEEN APRIL 12 AND APRIL 17 OR 18....
