Unofficial Pre-Picnic Eat & Greet at Ninety-Nine Vernon Friday Night!

Hello again!  This is the same post as last year pretty much, but it’s just as important!

We know a few folks are arriving early, and after a day of chopping veggies, washing and checking equipment, and shopping, Dark & I will be heading out to eat.  We would love for you all to join us!


Friday Night, May 23th – Late Dinner at the 99 Restaurant

295 Hartford Turnpike  Vernon, CT 06066

Meeting outside at 8:30 pm – 8:45 pm, sitting down to eat at 9:00 pm

Casual Dress – *NO EARS, TAILS, FURSUITS, etc, INSIDE! … just be cool. :)

Open seating, but we will try to sit together. Show up late and it’s seating wherever.


That’s about it, it’s not the diner meet, so we won’t be hanging around, save the fursuiting and silliness for the picnic, but please join us for some eats and a beverage – no RSVP, again, just show early.

– FrostElf & Darkcougarkat
