  • Bash Dinner - Restaurant Poll

    While there's still plenty of time before we'll have to make reservations, I figured I'd go ahead and start soliciting opinions on the location for the dinner.

    Here are the candidates;

    Morgan Street Brewery: www.morganstreetbrewery.com

    The Old Spaghetti Factory: www.osf.com

    Jake's Steaks: www.jakessteaks.com

    Joey B's on the Landing: www.joeybslanding.com *

    Show-Me's: www.showmes.com *

    * These two I'd have to check on whether they have sufficient room for a big party.

    Re: Bash Dinner - Restaurant Poll

    I'm really in the dark as far as restaurants. As long as it's down at Laclede's Landing, I'm good, although I wasn't impressed with The Old Spaghetti Factory. I prefer a place like Jake's, where we can get a room that is mingling and visiting friendly. The room at The Old Spaghetti Factory didn't allow for the usual meet and greet activities. For me, it's more about who you're with, as opposed to where you're at.

    Sorry Av, I wasn't much help, was I?

      No, I think that's a good point. While the food was better at Jake's under the old ownership, the "Fire Room" is a great venue for the dinner. I would be fine going back there if that is people want...

      HOWEVER... I will note that Morgan Street Brewery has private rooms as well. The key is that I have to have a reasonable number of positive RSVPs to make it worth reserving a room.

        The main factors to me in order are:

        1. Large enough and quiet enough to enjoy the mingling, as Mike said.

        2. Cheap enough I can afford it and still have a lot of cash left over for game day.

        3. A decent menu.

        4. Somewhere within walking distance to the places most of us are staying.

            From what I read, Morgan Street Brewery has banquet rooms that they cater for a group. That might be difficult to pull together.

              Given the opinions, I'm starting to think that, assuming we have 12 or more people, it might just be best to get the Fire Room at Jake's again.

                I'd be fine with Jake's. I really like the setup we get there.

                  Sorry - I tried. I couldn't find a Mickey D's that served toasted ravioli.

                    After visting all the website links that were posted and looking at all the menus - I voted for the Morgan Street Brewery.

                      I agree that the MSB menu looks really good, but we may go with Jake's simply because they have the best private room.

                      By the way, I look forward to finally meeting you in person, Mr. Ferter!

                          I voted for Joey B's because I want to win that free t-shirt for eating the Big Joey burger. Aside from that, I'd like to try the MSB if we can get a private room. Maybe Jake's food got better in the two years since we've been there?

                            I think we're going to go with Jake's simply because I don't need a headcount to reserve the Fire Room (which is big enough for at least 30 people).

                              Either Jakes went downhill, or I am not that pick, as I don't remember getting bad food there. Of couse my last meal at Jakes was in 2001 or 2002. Been a Down East'r since Dec 2002, and plane tickets are too expensive for frequent trips back home.

                              Call it Jake's for me. BTW. Food always tastes better when hangin' with the Clan Rammers.

                                by AvengerRam_old
                                Please vote on this poll ONLY if you are considering attending the Bash this year.

                                The final decision as to the date of the Bash will be made by the Mods and will be based on several factors, including, but not limited to, the results of this poll.

                                Also, if you have a particular conflict or compelling reason why you prefer one date over the other, and do not wish to mention it here, please feel free to send me a PM.

                                The two options are as follows:

                                Game 1 (9/11/10) vs. Arizona: This is a 3:15 game, so it could impact the ability to travel home Sunday night.

                                Game 4 (10/3/10) vs. Seattle: This is the first 12:00 noon home game of the year.

                                Thanks.

                                by AvengerRam_old
                                With the NFL and the NFLPA talking, and an important court hearing tomorrow, there is at least a glimmer of hope that the lockout might end in the near future, allowing the season to start on time.

                                Once the lockout is officially over, we will set the date for this year's ClanRam Bash. It is my presumption that the majority will favor holding the Bash on opening weekend, September 10-11, when the Rams will (hopefully) host the Eagles.

                                If you are thinking of possibly attending this year, please respond to this poll.

                                Thanks!
                                If its held on 9/10-11, I plan to attend (this is my first choice for the date).

                                I hope to attend, and 9/10-11 is as good a weekend as any.
