Third Place part deux

All right. I have made a decision for now. I'm going to throw out Thursday evenings at McDonalds. I was thinking of picking a McDonalds in between us all like Tempe. I know of a McDonalds at Southern and McClintock with an ok Playland. Does anyone else have an idea? I was thinking we could meet somewhere between 4-6pm. I am not married to the location but just to get things started I picked McDonalds. I don't know if this Thursday, Nov 20th, is to early or we could start after Thanksgiving. Any thoughts?

Nov 18, 2008:
My family and the Schroeders will be meeting at McDonalds Nov 20, 2008, 4:30-6:30 ish. All are welcome. The McDonalds is at 1900 W Warner in Chandler. It's on the NE corner of Warner and Dobson.

Jacob, I live in north Scottsdale. What I'm really looking for is more of a midweek meeting. A seperate day from our usual meeting. I would also be up for a playdate before our Sunday meetings but my main goal was to set up another VERY casual meeting. I don't even know if this will work, but I'm willing to give it a shot. I will drive anywhere to be honest, but if I can minimize driving time to 30 minutes one way I would be happy. Again, I'm not set on McDonalds. A park would be fine, but my knowledge of the east valley is limited to my ASU days 17 years ago (ouch, I'm getting old).

We have two blogs rolling on this topic...I am not sure where to post...but...If I am not mistaken, Freestone in Gilbert does not run its attractions during the week neither does Desert Breeze in Chandler.
However, McCormick Railroad Park in Scottsdale is open daily until 5:30pm
This may not be a bad option for something special. It would be tough for you Queen Creek-ers...but...its a great park. Besides the train they have a pretty large play area. A very nice place.
Perhaps we should start with the solid McD's in Tempe this time...and continue to research more options as we go?

Heh, the railroad park that's on my jobsite? That's too funny that you mention this, as we tear up the road around it ;-)

Mickey D's is cool with me Matt, and Tempe seems pretty central. During the week is a little difficult for us, but I feel the need for something like this as well, and so we'd try to make it happen.

Heads up though--that intersection is under construction. I was there this morning and it was a little crazy. Give yourself a little time. :)
