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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
