If you decide on Bloomington Ozark House is an excellent place to eat. They have a web site.
I was downtown BMI last night for an indoor football game and there is NOTHING around there except bars!
Hope we can get some more people commenting in here....CM gatherings are always fun!
Okay, so your preference is Bloomington as opposed to Springfield? Yes, I recall there is not much around Holy Trinity but it is a nice old church and they have a Saturday evening Mass....I thought Lucy posted a link to the parish??? Thanks for your suggestions, Heather....I hope we hear from some more folks (hint hint). I think we can be open to any central Illinois town that has a restaurant and a Mass on the 6th (Saturday).
Perhaps I posted a link in a private e-mail to you, Helen. Regardless, here is one now:
(I just use trusty old http://www.masstimes.org!)
It doesn't matter to me for a location. Have car, can travel - especially once nicer weather has arrived! And, uh, I'm not too picky about food, either.
Easy peasy, Heather. Send out a few emotigrams or messages a day to guys AND gals inviting them to look at this thread and room and join us. You can also invite a single Catholic or two in your area to ride with you to join. If you see anyone in the forums from the surrounding area, invite them. It's one evening sharing faith and fellowship. And food! (Can't forget the FOOD!)
Ozark house looks yummy!
Problem is that a lot of people on here aren't subscribers. Hard telling....
