    Okay. We should start locking down a city and place since we are a week out. What is everyone in the mood for?

    Also, if you are collecting Bot Bots, bring your duplicates/do not wants with you and we can try to complete our sets.

    I always like Woodbridge (Hot Lanes go southbound before noon, northbound after noon), but Springfield or Lorton would be fine by me.

    One of the last times we did Woodbridge we went to Bar Louie (good for burgers) and everyone seemed to like it. There's a Red Robin by the mall, and we recently got a a Mod Pizza (build your own pizza). In Lorton there's a Glory Days Grill and they have something for everyone.

    Mod Pizza and Bar Louis are meh. Red Robin is okay I guess. I like Glory Days wings.

    As far as overall location, Lorton or Springfield is preferred just to save me a little bit of time. Lorton is already 30 miles/50 minutes for me.

    Also, let me know if you want anything from Eddie. Here things he has here:

    Fuuma
    KFC Dumpyard
    Bold Forms Gladius
    JJ01 Supreme Leader
    MT Meteor
    Brawny
    Papatoys Hot Rod
    Papatoys Magnus
    Magic Square Trailbreaker
    Magic Square Inferno
    Magic Square Cyclonus
    Magic Square Blaster
    PX Deathsaurus
    MP-36+

    Any special orders would need to be sent to me by Tuesday.

    If we did springfield, there's ZinBurger (awesome) and Yardhouse. Both are good, but are a little pricier than the group normally does. There's a Chuy's there too (and in Woodbridge). Last time we met in Springfield we did Bertuccis. Also in Springfield is a Nando's Peri Peri and &Pizza.

    I'd be interested in Nando's. I've heard good things about it. Pass on Chuy's.

    There a few Nando's in the area (Woodbridge too). Most people who I have talked to agree it's a little pricey for what it is, but it's not too bad. Since it's counter service technically, you don't have to tip. Overall I think it's decent. They do grill their chicken and their marinades pack a lot of flavor. If you like heat, they have you covered! I have never seen one being very busy which would work well for us.

    I have an extra set of leaders since the set I got for @Chaddicus is no longer needed since he found his own set. Let me know if you want/need it for the meetup.

    @neeral36 - it’s yours. Let me know if you want anything else. Obviously you’re more than just a “local” so always willing to work with you!

    I'm in.

    Wonder if any new blood will go. There seems to be a surge in new posters in the sightings thread.

    For those of you who want to join the Toy Dojo group order, please confirm what you want with me no later than EARLY Tuesday morning. That's the drop dead date to ensure that items arrive on time for folks.

    At the very least you'll get free shipping on items, but Eddie usually hooks up at least a small discount even on new arrivals.

    FYI, the latest forecast also says it's going to snow Friday-Sunday this coming week. So we may have to plan ahead for that and have a contingency plan.
