I'm having a little get-together in Brookfield, about 20 minutes west of Milwaukee, on Sunday, November 7th, from 4:30 to 7:00 or so, and you're invited. This is nuthin' special, just a gathering—no program, no slide show, no speech, no super-secret prototype cameras passed around surreptitiously under the table (unless Pentax wants to send me a 645D for the day). Just me and a few other photo-dawgs at a table in the corner. On the good side, there's no charge—all you have to pay for is your own food and drink, and you don't need a reservation, ticket, or anything of that sort. Just bring yourself. Families and friends also welcome.
You can just show up on the day if it works out that way for you, but it would be nice if we could give the restaurant a rough idea of what to expect—so if you think you're, say, 80% likely to come, please drop me an email. No obligation.
Only two rules: no gifts, and you're not allowed to buy my dinner! It's not a great spot to look at fine prints or books, but bring cool toys, iPads, etc. if you want to. Again, no obligation.
The meet-up is at Yokoso Japanese Restaurant, located at Goerke's (rhymes with "turkeys") Corner in Brookfield. It's right off the expressway so it's easy to get to. The address is 20101 W. Bluemound Road, Brookfield, Wisconsin 53045, phone (262) 782-8880, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Directions are here. It's my favorite restaurant. My son is a part-time waiter there, and might even be on duty that night.
Yokoso does have many cooked entrees if you have an aversion to raw fish. The chefs are skilled and the fare is excellent. You can see the menu here.
We've never done this before, and I realize 99% of the people who read TOP aren't local, but I thought we'd give it a try and see how it goes. If all goes well, it's possible we could do the same thing in other cities at some point in the future. Hope you'll come if you can!
