    If we make it to the show I'd love to meet up for dinner. Looking at our work schedule we won't know for sure until Mid-March whether we can go to this show or not - but odds are we will. Tia's just disappointed that she'll have to stay and mind the shop!

    If you want a seriously good restaurant you have to go to one of the Texas De Brazil restaurants. Here in Texas it is called Texas De Brazil, but Orlando does have one not sure if it is still called Texas or Orlando De Brazil. It is an upscale restaurant however, it is casual dress and around $45/person. Here is their website :

    Texas de Brazil

    Also if you are into Japanese you must go to Arigato's Japanese Steak House.

    I assume that is like Fogo De Choa here in Houston. Brazilian steak houses are some of the best food Ive ever had...

    Well Orlando is 200 miles up the road for me so I don't know the best places to eat. I was kind of hoping that a member might announce themselves that is from the greater Orlando area and could steer us to something good that's also reasonably close to International Drive.

    There's lots of places to eat in every direction but reservations would be a plus on a Friday evening.

    I'll be driving and will have room for 3 or 4 passengers. Anyone else driving?

    LMAO Shovelhead........ Yes, Barry it is just like Fogo De Choa. I went to the one in Dallas and it was incredible! We too were concerned with being under dressed by the way it looked but hell, people were in there with shorts and t-shirts.

    Most likely we will be driving up from Tampa Bay / Clearwater area. I know there is an Arigoto's off international drive. There is also a Planet Hollywood still there not far from International drive.

    Looking up the website for the restaurant you are talking about, we have one by another name here in town, its called Gauchos, and we have done sign work for them. I agree, it is definitely a different type of restaurant.

    I'd need all that room to get my groove on.

    I'm going to go on Friday and return home on Saturday. What i've suggested but gotten very little feedback on is the idea of us Signs 101 folk meeting after the show on Friday and going out for dinner.

    No not at all. They have any number of categories for registrants. Just go to signs.org to register. There is a registration fee.

    Going from memory, I think the show closes at 5 PM on Friday. That is when I would propose that those of us wanting to get together meet outside the exhibit hall.
