    That would be great! I'd be glad to contribute fork over some $$$ for petrol (anything to keep me off 495 & 270).

    The 14th would probably work for me. I'll pass on the strip club but I'm in for a tattoo.

    I'll pass on both the strip club and the tattoo. But it looks like December 14 is the day. Now we just have to figure out where we're going...

    Well, cool.
    That means getting drunk is still on the table!

    If we get drunk we might end up on the table!

    No responses yet over at the Frederick forum. I'm assuming that we want to stay within the historic district, so here are a few options:

    Here are brunch menus for Acacia and Firestone's. I've never eaten at either but have heard both are good.

    Cafe Nola, which is a very hip coffee shop/cafe/bar, apparently also has brunch. I've had lunch there a few times and it's been fairly good. They have good tea and I've heard that their coffee is excellent (Illy brand).

    There are also places like Brewer's Alley and Isabella's that do very good lunch, if we wanted to shop first, then eat.

    If anyone wants to end up on the table, I'd suggest Firestone's or Brewer's Alley. And there are three (three!!) tattoo parlors up at the top of the historic district. Strip joints would require driving, though there is an adult video/magazine shop up near the tattoo parlors

    I can check around at work and see what's recommended for Sunday brunch downtown (I have no idea). I'm usually in Virginia on Sundays, so I'm not sure whether I'll be able to make it or not.

    Brewer's Alley was horrid the last time I was there.
    Not too keen on Isabellas, either.
    Don't forget That Cuban Place.
    Cacique never fails me and they have fabulous desserts.

    Huh, I've never had a bad meal at Brewer's Alley, it's actually one of my favorite places in Frederick. I've only eaten at Isabella's once, but it was enjoyable and the idea of tapas is always fun. Haven't tried That Cuban Place or Cacique yet.

    Maybe we should choose a place that neither you or I have tried, that way it'll be new for all of us.

    Here's a brunch post over at FrederickMarylandOnline. We can watch the responses to that for ideas. And we do, of course, need to bear in mind whether or not the place can handle vegan options.

    Hmmm... Wonder why I'm hungry all of a sudden...

    Sweet! Unlimited Bloody Mary's after 1 for $8! Gotta get your vegetables somehow, right???

    I think we'd need a head-count soon as we'd likely need a reservation for a brunch place so close to the holiday.

    So...count off.
