    As to location, in the past the Perkins area was always off limit on a Saturday night but this last time they seemed amicable to letting us go there. If that is the case then that is not a bad alternative and is usually kind of private.

    Location has really been an issue since Pizza King closed. Of course Bills place works great for me but I understand where some people want a more neutral setting, although you really are going to be missing out on some serious man dog love between Uncle Buck and Bills dog.

    Well, my July schedule just went to hell. I'm 100% out on the 13th and 27th. The 20th is still a possibility, but I have to work stupid early on both days that weekend. Ugh.

    Plenty of venues if cost and time weren't issues.

    Now some restaurants have great spaces but require pre-paid food/drink money. Milano Inn is good for this but I don't recall what the low end of spending is that they require. If it was maybe $20 per for 20 people which was a full dinner and drinks, that might get it done, and if we could count on more and spread the cost it could be even less. Maybe a bit more than we were spending on pizza but probably not a ton.

    I mention Milano Inn since it's downtown and we've had events there before. Hicks, Gnome and Shade came to my 40th in that upper room. It was a nice, private space perfect for us. And to me Italian food offers plenty of room for various tastes, much like a pizza place. Not sure what their time limit is, maybe 12 or 1 AM on the weekend?

    A possible location you might want to consider is the Time Out Lounge on the
    NE side of Indy at 6243 Allisonville Rd.

    I've spoken with the owner, and he said that he would be happy to host the
    get-together. All he would need is a little heads-up as to about how many
    folks would be showing up. I told him it could be 20-30 people just to give
    him a figure, and he said no problem. The place pretty small, but he has
    no problem with cordoning a section and shoving the tables together for
    a large group.

    He also doesn't have a problem with keeping the jukebox turned down or
    muted if necessary.

    As for food, it is right next door to Some Guys pizza, and WB's pizza is
    closeby as well. There is also a 1st Wok at the other end of the strip if
    anyone might want Chinese (I recommend the Pu Pu platter). Patrons bring
    Chinese and pizza in there to eat all the time, and the bar even keeps their
    menus on hand. There is also a popcorn machine and would be plenty of free
    popcorn for all to snack on.

    The bar has Killians Red and Blue Moon on tap.

    And for those who stay late enough for Perkins, it is only a short drive
    away straight up Allisonville Rd.

    So, the Time Out Lounge is an option that is definitely available if anyone
    might be interested.

    Not to be a Debbie Downer but is this a 21 and over bar only? The PD forum party has always been available to all Pacer fans no matter what age.

    Just wondering.... where were some of the places the Pacers held their playoff viewing parties at and could they be a possibility?

    Those were mostly all Buffalo Wild Wings. In fact, I think they all were.

    Good point. I will ask later after they open and get back on that.

    Well do we still like the idea of 465 and Allisonville being the spot? There are a lot of places in that area. Like I said Fox and Hound really wouldn't have been bad if it wasn't for the MMA fight that night.

    I think we absolutely have to be guaranteed a space in a side room. It doesn't have to be private, just big enough for everybody and not people's first choice of where to sit when they walk in. If we could have had the original room we were supposed to have, Fox & Hound would have been just fine, and the big table we ended up at was actually a pretty perfect configuration for the way a forum gathering is run (except for the background activity like TJ said).

    If it is going to be the 20th, I'd ask that it be somewhere within an inexpensive cab ride of Opti Park (Broadripple)

    Ok I checked with them and was told that nobody under 21 can be allowed because
    the bar isn't seperated from the seating area. That rules out the Time Out lounge.

    Too bad.

    The 20th still looks to be the best option for me. I may be really tired and have to leave early, though. Scheduled to work at 6:30 am both days.
