A Great Scottsdale ActiveRain Meetup Tuesday, December 19, 2017

By
Real Estate Agent with Haven Express @ Keller Williams Arizona Realty BR534744000 & BR540649000

Yesterday Suzanne and I attended an Active Rain Meetup in Scottsdale, Arizona!

 

Attendees included (in alphabetical order by last name) were:

 

Richard Bazinet /MBA, CRS, ABR 

David Dion 

 

Brian England  

Jan Green 

Carol Williams all the way from Washington, a.k.a. - "Mrs. Santa Clause" (read on)!

 

The event took place at:

 

     

 

  

Uncle Sal's Italian Restauranti & Bar 

3370 N. Hayden Rd.

Scottsdale, AZ 85251

480-990-2533

Great Menu - Reasonable Prices!

 

Suzanne and I found this gem of a restaurant a few years ago after hearing the Owner being interviewed on a local radio show, and the rest as they say is history!

 

This is a family owned authentic Italian restaurant with top class authentic Italian Cuisine!

 

We talked about aerial photography and videography and the need to use properly authorized / licensed pilots (FAA regulations) and the wisdom of carrying liability insurance for every drone shoot.  

 

As usual for Meetups, everyone present had some informational "gems" to share, some of which are now on our "follow up list".

  

The most popular menu selection this time was the Baked Ziti ordered by both Brian and Richard - and they are now know as the "Ziti Brothers"!  To say the portion size of the Ziti is an understatement!!

 

Apart from the great food served by Uncle Sal's the best part for us was getting to meet Carol Williams from Washington State, who is in town until after the first of the year.  Carol stunned the rest of us with her graciousness when she calmly placed her hand over the check and said "Merry Christmas" everyone!  

An unexpected treat for which all at the table expressed their sincere appreciation!

 

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Thank you for reaching out to us Carol Williams and to Tony & Suzanne for suggesting Uncle Sal's.  I've been before, but it's been many years.  Travelling to South Scottsdale is always a treat.  Thanks again to everyone for attending.  It was a fun luncheon and thank you for your generosity Carol.  Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Hannukah, and Happy New Year!

I miss AR meetups ... it's been so long since I attended a formal meetup.  I did an informal one recently ... always such a joy to meet AR peeps face to face and enjoy some "real" conversation.

It was a another very nice meetup and it was so kind of Carol Williams to treat us to lunch!  Is each one of us supposed to write a blog post about the meetup in order to get points?  Do we even get the promised points for meetups?  I know that Bob Crane said he was running behind, but it seems that points won't be given for any of the meetups.

I don't think this meetup falls into the "meetup seasons" Brian England - so no points - and therefore no "requirement" to post.  Good to see you again!
