October Meeting
When: Thursday, October 17, 7:00 pm
Where: KABUL
What: Dinner Meeting

     We will have a bit more exotic dinner adventure for those who have never been to KABUL Afghan restaurant, or a pleasant return to a favorite place.  I have not been here for a few years but the food is always good...kebabs, rices, vegetarian and much more.  You can look at the menu on the website at  There are no prices shown there but it is not too expensive.  The restaurant is on El Camino in Sunnyvale so we can carpool.  I know Sally has been there before so she may remember more details.
     Please RSVP if possible and I can call for a reservation.  They always used to have big round tables, which is good for a group and hopefully they will be able to seat us that way.....Shirley

Happy Hour.....Sally

Part I:  This month's LM Happy Hour, the first Thursday of each month, will be on October 3rd, at P.F. Chang's at the Oakridge Mall.  Talk to Vicki or Sally about arranging carpooling, Sally can take up to 4 more.  Arrive anytime from 3 until 6. 
Part II:  The menu--looks yummy and well priced--they also have beer and sake and nonalcoholic drinks at even cheaper prices then the "hard" liquor.  You don't have to be there at 3 to have fun.  You can arrive at 5:45 and get your bargain order in, we will gladly stay past 6 and yack--we did the other times.

Napa B&B Holiday Tour.....Sue Butler

It's time to start planning for the annual Napa Holiday B&B Tour:  December 7, 2013, 3 p.m to 7 p.m.

We will leave Sat morning and only stay one night at Embassy Suites.  Last year the cost for the room was around $170 per night.  We are within walking distance from the Napa Inn (if we want to start there for the tour) and there are bigger breakfasts at Embassy, bigger rooms and a place to play games.

Tickets for the tour stayed at $65.00 per person, and still well worth it.  Go to and purchase your tickets.  See the list of B&B's that are participating this year.  Great entertainment, food and decorations (besides wine and some even have beer).

Some friends just come for the day, and others will spend the night.

Let me know if you decide to come with, we usually go to lunch beforehand at Buckhorn in Napa.

Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue
We meet every Saturday morning at 9 am at Le Boulanger at San Felipe and Yerba Buena.  There is a Starbucks across from it if you need something "special" to go with your bagel or pastry.   We've changed the location for away coffee on Saturday, October 19th, to Crepevine in Willow Glen (1100 Lincoln Ave).  Randi says, "They have coffee drinks and a wide variety of breakfast items - crepes, omelettes, scrambles, pancakes, French toast, etc.  You order at a counter and then are seated."  We need to know how many are coming so RSVP to Randi
