Also, you could still take your family to Fantasea in Wichita, though I'm not sure you would want to. 


 :lol:

mrs. dave is from wichita, a large gas station chain in Omaha is called Fantasy's, she will drive out of her way to go to a different gas station because of the name.  nfm. 

I know this topic is a fairly old post but I just had to throw my 2 cents in for whatever they're worth! If you grew up on the south/southeast side of Wichita or in the lgbt community you called it Barnacle Bill's or Barnacle Bill's fantasea. Why? Well, if you called it just fantasea people were liable to confuse it or joke that you were talking about Fantasy... a gay bar at 31st on Hillside, which is still open.

I'm hoping I can move my flight back a day as a meeting got canceled, but as it is I fly in really late next Wednesday night, could probably do lunch or happy hour Thursday, Thursday dinnerPAK, and Saturday lunchPAK.  Plan things that don't suck accordingly.

I also need to go to go to a few Dillon's stores to get all the sweet tea mios I can find.

It's already on my calendar.....also, regarding the Mio, don't you Amazon?

They're marked up $2-3 a bottle.  :frown:

How much do you want?  I can pre-purchase some so you don't have to waste good drinking time in that hell hole.

Don't sweat it.  I just did some more checking and if I don't get to them myself while I'm there I can order a gang of them from walmart at a decent price and get them shipped free.  http://www.walmart.com/ip/Mio-Sweet-Tea-Liquid-Water-Enhancer-1.62-oz/15939961

T-Y.

Mio is on sale at Dillon's right now for $2.99.

Jackpot.  What a clusterfuck the scheduling of this is though.  What used to be a great plan now has me needlessly missing a night at home and arriving 15 minutes after Ambassador stops shuttle'n.  I'm gonna have to get one of those dirty cabs to take me on a graveyard shift Dillon's run on the way to the hotel.

But this mio news is great.  I just put a couple big ziploc bags on my stack of stuff to pack to remind me to load them up.

Y'all need any fish?

I also have a Mio Coupon on my Dillon's card if you want to use it by putting in the number when you check out. (PM me if so.)

Gooch says we need 1 pound of crab meat (the loose out of shell meat).

1 pound of the jumbo lump crab meat and 4 of those vacuum seal smoked salmon would be great.

Definitely.  Do you and Gooch share a card?  If so, I'm betting we can use it Thursday during a lunch break.  Or if you find yourself at a Dillon's that has a good supply before then, grab 'em.

The same salmon I sent to adoptionfest, or did you get others yourself from the touristy place that you want again?

So grocery weekly ads usually change on Wednesday...so I wonder if the Mio will still be on sale by the time you get here. Maybe I should just stop by a Dillon's and get some.

That should be easy.  If you don't want the same savages who eff up the microwave somehow screwing with this stuff, pick me up Wednesday night and you can have the stuff in your fridge within 15 hours of when I get it.

I drove up to Leavenworth last night after the SKC match to stock up on Kroger Fitness Water fitlat (not like mio but a cheaper but better tasting propel) and I brought a cooler to get Blue Bell Ice Cream. That shifty Dillon's only had one flavor of fitness water and Blue Bell is still recalled in Kansas and Missouri  :curse:

I might have a hookup for you on the ice cream.

It is not legal, but the proposed ordinance passed which reduces the fine to $50 for possession of a small amount. It is superseded by state law though, so now there is going to be a big uproar and the AG is going to sue Wichita or something.
