February Brunch

Hi all,

January's brunch had a pretty good turn out and we wanted to keep it going. :)  It seems like Sundays work best for most people. I am wondering if Sunday, Feb. 15th works for most people?

Re: February Brunch

  • I had a great time chatting with everyone!  At this point I think the 15th works for me so keep me in the loop. I'm near the Diamond Lake area. Let me know if you are stuck on ideas. I wish there was a quieter place to go but my guess is that Sunday brunch is going to be busy everywhere.

  • 15th works for me! I think a lot of places that have private rooms require a large food purchase, but some Caribous have meeting rooms.  Not as nice as the place we were at today, but maybe a little quieter!
    MagicMikki
  • Cecelia and I had a great time! The 15th might work for me- I'll have to let you know as we get closer as my parents are visiting that weekend.
    MagicMikki
  • I agree a quiter place would be better, but as you guys said, might be harder on Sundays.... As of now, 15th works for me!

    There's a caribou at MOA that has a decent sized meeting room. I was shopping with lite one last summer (he was 2 ish months old) and looking for a semi quiet place to nurse him... And I wondered into the back of this one caribou and there was a book club going on in this meeting room - seemed like a great idea :)

  • Just thought of a place that could work- Ol Mexico in Roseville does a Sunday Brunch buffet and its been pretty empty when I've gone.
    They do their regular menu as well.
    MagicMikki
  • Those are all great suggestions! I would be a little worried that the MOA would be too much of a hassle for some, though, you know? Ol Mex is always good... I had no idea they had a Sunday brunch! I'll call and check it out.

    If possible, please let me know (if you haven't already) by next Friday, Feb 13 if you'll be joining so I can call ahead for a reservation. Thanks!

  • Hey everyone. I am trying to delete my account and leave the board, but I really would love to be able to keep in contact and meet you guys for brunch. You have my email. I would love if you can send me an email when you plan brunches so I can attend.
    Thank you for everything
  • I'm pretty sure I can make the 15th. Roseville is a great location! I'm open to anything :) Karla

  • @oliv0026 - Sad to see you go!! I will be sure to include you in any emails that I send out for the Feb. brunch.

    @ilovebijou - I think a FB group is a great idea, too!

    @reyrey2014 - Welcome! Are you from Minnesota already and just moving to the area, or are you from out of state? I think you'll enjoy the group of ladies on here... you will for sure have to join us for the March brunch. :)


    Here are the people I have down for the February brunch:

    @eggmankate

    @Melissa101788

    @kkaew816

    @oliv0026  (who may not see this, but will include her in email)

    @ilovebijou

    @katieb32611

    @ashleymarie1027


    Have I missed anyone? Also, it's not too late to join! Please let me know by next Friday, February 13 if you're interested (and I haven't included you in the list above).

    I thought the Ol' Mexico idea sounded great! Here is the link to their website, if you're interested in checking it out. They have a Sunday Brunch.  http://www.olmexico.com/ordereze/1000/Page.aspx  I believe I will be making a reservation there.

  • I might have missed it, but did you all mention a time for meeting up on Sunday? We have church, but depending on the time, we might be able to meet up too.
  • MagicMikki -Thank you! I'm new to the state of MN. I'm moving from Seattle, WA. My husband lived in Woodbury, MN for ten years and his parents still live in Woodbury. I'm excited to be moving close to my helpful in-laws. I look forward to making new friends in St. Paul/Minneapolis.

  • Hey im hanging here still just because of this board!!!! im coming!!!!! whst time is it? 11?
    MagicMikki
  • @MagicMikki‌ what time are we meeting? I'll be able to come if it's a little later; like noon; but would understand if people want it earlier!
  • I'm not going to be able to come, I'm sorry. We have church that morning and I Anya typically naps right after so it'd be really hard to get over there. I'm curious what time it will be, but that is what I'm thinking....

    @lilbear87‌ you didn't miss it! :-)

    Reservations are at Ol' Mexico in Roseville at 11:00 on Sunday 15th, but I can definitely update the reservation to be noon or close to noon, if that works better for people? Let me know and I'll be more than happy to make the update!

  • Don't change the time for me. My thing is that my 14 month old is protesting her afternoon nap which to me is a sign that I need to move to one nap a day. I'm going to try it for the first time today to merge the two naps so I'm just not sure how well it will work and therefore my schedule is a little less unpredictable this weekend.

  • FYI---my family went to breakfast for V-day at Chatterbox Pub off of 44th and France Avenue this morning and it was a great spot. They open at 10am on the weekends. I went there for breakfast a year ago  on the weekend as well and both times it's absolutely dead first thing when they open. I loved how quiet it was. It may be a good future spot for a Mama meet-up. The Highland Park location is always packed on weekend mornings, but not this location.

    @eggmankate, that would be a great place, too! And it sounds like it's in a pretty central location. Maybe for the March one? Good luck with the nap schedule, by the way!

  • All-

    The brunch is scheduled for 11:30 tomorrow morning (Sunday, Feb 15) at Ol' Mexico in Roseville. If you are able (and willing), please send me a private message with your email address and I can send out an email reminder, and this would also be a good way to communicate tomorrow if anyone ends up not being able to make it.

    Thanks!
