We are sponsoring our second dinner for Adam Lambert fans before his concert at Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, California, on Thursday, July 19, 2012. We already have 24 confirmed guests and Lila and I are looking forward to celebrating with you! If you have already responded to our first article about this a few weeks ago, thank you. If you are still waiting – please don’t! We need to give the restaurant enough lead-time to make arrangements both in seating and food. Your deadline is July 15 to let us know. RSVP at glambinfo@aol.com with your name, cell phone number and how many people will be in your party. Further communication will go to directly to you. You will be emailed a specially designed nametag that you can print and put in a nametag holder.

Dinner will be at Mimi’s Café, 4:30 pm, 1835 Newport Blvd. in Costa Mesa, about 2 miles from the venue. This was a very successful location for our last dinner, in July 2010. As an added bonus, we will be holding a drawing for a signed magazine! Which magazine? One with Adam on the cover, of course! You’ll have to attend the dinner to find out which one!!

If you need transportation to the dinner, it’s easy! The OCTA bus system has two stops at the Fairgrounds with very little walking, and will let off at the restaurant corner. I’m planning on parking my car at the Fairgrounds and taking the bus to avoid parking congestion just prior to the start of the show. Go to www.octa.net to plan your trip. The site has a very easy-to-use trip planner showing exact stop locations. If you’re leaving from the Fairgrounds, the address is 88 Fair Dr., Costa Mesa. The restaurant is at 1835 Newport Blvd., Costa Mesa. Plan on bringing cash – singles and quarters for the fare. It’s $1.50 each way, or .60 cents for those over 60 or disabled. Please bring proper identification to show the bus driver if you are using this option. Allow approximately 20 minutes for travel and plan to be at your stop 10 minutes ahead of time. We’re meeting at Mimi’s at 4:30 PM and the concert starts at 7:45 PM so plan accordingly.

With this number of guests, we are required to have a planned menu, with a variety of entrée options. All guests are responsible for their own bills. See the menu here for details.

Entrée choices:

1. French Quarter Burger (beef or turkey). Includes fries, coleslaw or kettle chips. $10.49
2. Mediterranean Fettuccini $10.49; add $2.49 for chicken.
3. Tilapia – with vegetables & choice of potato, brown or white rice. $14.99
4. Bleu Cheese Walnut Salad – with freshly baked muffin. Omit bleu cheese for vegan. $8.49

We are looking forward to partying with all of you and then having the best time of our lives!

Love ya!

About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)

    Carol,
    You all have a great time.!!!! Wish I could be there but I am on the East Coast (NC).

  11. This sounds great, but unfortunately I can’t make it. I AM going to Adam’s show at the Winstar Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma on July 27. Anyone from here going to that one?

    Also, I have 2 e-tickets for sale for the Thackerville show, in section B, good seats together. If interested, email me at knutsons61@att.net. Am selling them for what I paid, $63.

  12. Is anybody remember back a while ago that a foreign country magazine featured Adam that we can pre-order, I have never receive mine . HELP

  13. Is the ticket for the concert still available?

  14. Hi, Spoke to someone at OCTA bus service. Told me to take bus 47 south at Fairview and Merrimac at 3:45, transfer to 43 south at Harbor and Wilson at 4:07 and arrive at Newport and 18th at 4:14. There is a 2 minute walk to Mimi’s. Is that what you are doing or is there an easier way? Hope so!

    • I’m sticking to the direct routes that I published in the letter. I’ll send it to you again, in case you missed it.

  15. Hi Everyone, I think we should start a poll on having Adam on american idol…..

  16. Hi Carol, I really appreciate your arranging this special dinner and opportunity for fans who love Adam to get together before the concert. Although I’m going to the concert, I’ve decided it’s best for me to just go directly to the arena.. Because of recent ankle fusion surgery, boarding the steps to take the bus is probably not a good idea yet-and walking needs to be at a minimum for now. However, I would love to meet you and just say “Hi and thank you,” if that is at all possible before the concert. .I know you may be too busy and preoccupied—but just in case—–I’ll be with my daughter in the Circle section,row EE seats 59 and 60…….I’m so excited i can hardly stand it !!! Since this will be Adam’s first gig since his triumphant return with Queen overseas, I think we should just stand and scream ad infinitum once he appears on that stage next Thursday. We need to show him how much his own country loves him too.

  17. vocalsrule says:

    Wish I could be there. I’ve only seen him twice! You all are the best fans anyone could ask for. For the discussion, is Idol really a good move for Adam? Isn’t there a risk that he would be seen as a has been since the show is in decline?

    I’d rather see him act and do some big deal on Broadway to show what he’s capable of. Maybe he should guest host for one of the talk shows to show how quick witted and nice he is. Looking forward to hearing all the opinions from the dinner! Lots to talk about.

  18. Hi Carol,
    I tried to RSVP to your glambinfo@aol.com site today but it said that the site no longer exists. I am the Lorraine who wrote a message about my ankle surgery, but I realize I could probably get a taxi-instead of the bus, after my daughter and I park at the Amphitheater on Thursday. If you are still able to include us on the list for Mimi’s before Adam’s concert,here is my info:
    2 people, bleu cheese walnut salad for both of us
    lorikarb@cs.com
    Thank you so much for everything you do on this site. Lorraine

    Hi Carol! I just emailed you! I only heard of this event (Mimi’s) tonight from EC (@glamgran58)
    I emailed but forgot to let you know what we wanted (if that is needed?)
    If you can add us, we want one beef French Quarter Burger meal and one Bleu Cheese Walnut Salad.
    I await your reply via email. I used the email you posted here. (glambinfo@aol.com)
    Thanks! Looking forward to dinner with other Glamberts! 😀 <333

    Once again I will try to meet up with Glamberts at the wine tasting venue in the fair today. Try to be there about 3:00. I will be wearing my Fanasty Springs button of Adam. Hope to see some of you. Two years ago there were about 10 of us. Sorry I got this message about dinner too late to RSVP. Would love to join all of you again. I loved our Mimi’s adventure in Palm Springs.
