I just got invited to a dinner Monday night, Aug. 20th with the Platform Committee. Can't wait!

So, I get the invitation below (printed most of it), and I'm reading & thinking how cool it's going to be to go to dinner with these folks and get to know them better. My convention roomie can with come with me & it will be a good deal. Then I get to the price - $70?????

Comon! It's not like this is a fundraiser. So, no dinner for me with the Platform folks. There's no way I can afford that. I'm going in the hole as it is for the almost two weeks I have to be in Tampa as it is.....I hope everything isn't that expensive. Wish I was one of those RICH republicans....

Want to help me out? Go to the link below.


Dear Member of the Republican National Convention Committee on Resolutions,
Congratulations on your selection to the Platform Committee.

We are pleased to invite you to an informal dinner of the members and staff of the Platform Committee and their guests on Monday August 20th from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm at That's Amore, which is a five minute walk from the Marriott hotel.

As you know, dinner on Monday is on your own and we do not know for sure when we will recess, but last year the Committee went to 8:00 pm. Since we all have to eat regardless, Carolyn and I have organized an informal dinner for the members and staff of the Platform Committee and their guests. It will be a great opportunity to get to know your fellow committee members in a fun and relaxed family-style atmosphere.

That's Amore specializes in southern Italian cuisine. We will have a private room, entertainment and a cash bar. The meal is a flat fee of $70 and you have a choice of one of three entrees. We will have our own cash bar. This is the menu and your entree choices:


Bruschetta {served family style}

Antipasto Italiano {served family style}

Caesar Salad


Chicken Caprese
Salmone Limone
Veal Marsala

*entrees accompanied by seasonal vegetables and pasta.

Italian Cheesecake

Coffee or Tea

Yikes! Even if you do go to the "dinner", you may want to hold

off on eating anything that is served to you. Just sayin....:D

I have seen your posts

Over the last few days and I want you to know that I will be donating what I can this weekend after my hubby gets paid. Don't get discouraged!! I'm not a delegate but I will be with you all to show my support in Tampa!!

You've got to figure that most of these people are going to the convention only to party. I doubt they take it as serious as the Paul delegates. So do the best you can to bring them over to the side of Liberty and have some fun too.

Donated tonight

a little help from California. Best wishes to all of you.

We'll donate

if you promise not to indulge in the bar. You all need to be on your toes.

Keepin' it real.

No, I'm not going to drink too much in Tampa.

While I would have a glass of wine, I not only need to be sharp for any discussions, I also have to have my wits about me to drive in a strange land. I'm from a hard drinking town, Virginia City, Nevada, but I know my limitations.

My roomie in Tampa will probably want to go to the dinner anyway, as she's a veteran of these wars & is going to Tampa to fight the New World Order as an alternate delegate. (Please God, Please, move her up to full delegate status!)

While I think it would be WONDERFUL for all the RP people to dine together, I think we need to circulate among the Romulans & make friends and influence people. N'est pas?

Exactly, and if "they" are drinking I think you need to drink a little something. It'll let their guard down as well. You could always keep a glass in your hand (even if it's the same 1 or 2 drinks for the entire night - who's to know?) It's good to hear that you know your own limitations. Go get 'em!

If your convention guest does

If your convention guest does not want to go to this, I would love to go with you. I would like to work to get my ideas in the platform.

I wish I was rich so I could pay your way. I have to skip my local republican party lunches. They have them on Fridays during business hours... really... Who are these people that are not at a job on Friday at lunchtime?

A Pastor Kevin Erickson,

of Minnesota, just responded & said this was too expensive for his wallet. Anyone know the Pastor? I'm thinking he's one of us....

Ask John Sununu

if he lives closer to his dentist now :)

Well, my bitching has its benefits!

Someone just paid for my dinner thru PayPal!

Thank you, S.S.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No drinking

I figure I'll go to the restaurant,

have a drink, schmooze & then leave when they serve.


Might as well stay and get a free dinner!!
