Title: Phoenix Area
Post by: azjane on March 09, 2015, 01:34:29 PM
I haven't encountered any people in the Phoenix area. Would love to meet some locals  :D






*Note from Jess: I split the Phoenix posts into their own thread so maybe more Phoenicians will see it.

Im very lucky my region is ripe for bagos. As for phoenix, it can never hurt to post and see if anyone pops up.

I will be in the Phoenix area the week of April 5. Maybe we could all do lunch or dinner during that time?  :)

Hey! I will be in the Pheonix area for 2 weeks starting April 4th. I would love to meet up with you all, but will be without a vehicle. Maybe we could figure something out?

I'm in the Phoenix area and would love to get together.  I haven't been to a Bago for a few years and I miss them.

This is really exciting! I'm sure we can help out with a ride if needed, OSAAT. I'm in the East Valley, but happy to go wherever.

I'm in the East Valley, too.  I'd also be willing to help with a ride.  Let's make this happen!

Awesome! This is exciting. I appreciate the help with rides.

Hi Phoenix peeps!

Does anyone have a date in mind? I know we were aiming for the week of the 6th, correct? Also, a venue? Any ideas where we would like to meet?


As the time approaches, I find myself getting more and more excited!

I'm "visiting" Phoenix next week!  My daughter, son-in-law, and baby just moved there.  I'll be going out there a lot, so I'll try to stay connected to know if there are any scheduled get togethers when I'm there.  BTW, what is the East Valley?  They currently live in the Chandler, Gilbert area.  But he wants to move closer to ASU next year.
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Laura1017 on March 20, 2015, 11:17:26 AM
I'm so excited to see such a great response to this!  As for dates, I'm probably not the best one to comment.  I'm wide open the entire week of the 6th, with the exception of the 6th itself.  Those with busier schedules should probably weigh in  :). 

If we stick with the East Valley, there are tons of options for venues, lots of great restaurants.  I've lived here almost 2 years now but I still don't know the "best" places to go.  I'm up for anything and willing to drive to wherever the group would prefer to meet (and pick up OSAAT).

Linda, Chandler and Gilbert are in the East Valley, so we should all be nearby when you visit.  I think the East Valley stretches to the ASU area, too.  Again, I'm newer to the area so I could be wrong on that, but ASU is in Tempe and that's not far from Gilbert or Chandler.

Thank you for responding Laura! As far as I know, my schedule is pretty open too. I sm hoping jezzy and missingmarsha and azjane see this and weigh in as well! It is just 2 weeks away :-D

Sorry for the delayed response, I was galavanting around Vegas this weekend. :)

I checked with Justin and the 8th, 9th, or 11th at any time of day work for him. I am free then as well. I think we should maybe shoot for somewhere on Tempe if that works for people.
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: OSAAT on March 23, 2015, 12:35:03 PM
Awesome! The 8th or 9th would probably work best for me. What does everyone else think?
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Laura1017 on March 24, 2015, 10:30:13 AM
The 8th or 9th both work for me.  I think Tempe is a great idea, too!  We'll have plenty of options there.  I can't wait  :)
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Justin on March 24, 2015, 10:48:58 AM
The 8th or 9th will work great for me! Lunch or dinner on those days in Tempe will be fantastic :)
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Jess on March 24, 2015, 11:44:59 AM
I would personally like to vote for the 9th. I'm not picky on it being lunch or dinner. Here are a few restaurant suggestions to get this rolling. Please add any suggestions or feel free to say nay to any of these:

Four Peaks Brewing Company: http://www.fourpeaks.com/our-pubs/menus/
Lucille's BBQ: http://lucillesbbq.com/locations/tempe
Thirsty Lion: http://thirstyliongastropub.com/tempe/menu
Thai Basil: http://www.thaibasil-tempe.com/

I'm in for the 9th.  Dinner is easier for me, but I can make lunch work as long as I can give my boss notice by Monday the 6th.  I love the restaurant suggestions, Jess!  Once again I'm not much help.  They all sound great to me!
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Justin on March 25, 2015, 01:16:45 PM
I am so looking forward to our 'bago!

Does anyone have any opposition to the chance that my daughter may want to attend? She is a very mature 16yo and can hang with adults in conversation.
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Laura1017 on March 25, 2015, 03:18:31 PM
No opposition from me at all.  If everyone else is OK with it, have her take a look at the restaurant list and weigh in as well!
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Jess on March 25, 2015, 06:22:00 PM
If dinner is easier that will definitely work for me. :)
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: OSAAT on March 26, 2015, 11:42:56 AM
Dinner definitely works for me! I think it would be great to have your daughter there. I am very excited too!!
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Jess on March 26, 2015, 05:05:28 PM
Okay, how about 7pm, April 9th, location to be determined?
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: azjane on March 27, 2015, 10:24:30 AM
Sounds great to me!
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Justin on March 28, 2015, 09:47:56 PM
I took a look at the menus, and thought that Lucille's or The Thirsty Lion appealed most to me. DD said she is down for any of the restaurants.
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Jess on March 29, 2015, 12:02:42 PM
I am putting my vote in for Lucille's. Looks like we can make an online reservation there as well. :)
Title: Re: Phoenix Area
Post by: Laura1017 on March 31, 2015, 09:57:15 PM
Lucille's sounds great to me!  I've marked my calendar  :)

Wish I had seen this thread sooner! I'm leaving Phoenix tomorrow. But I'll be back at some point- my in-laws live here.
