They used to not take reservations for outdoor seating. If so, you could make a reservation for inside so we'll have something. We could then switch to outside if there is availability.

Thanks for taking care of it for us.

Thanks Carolyn.
The early dinner menu is orders in be 5:45. We should be able to catch that. A reservation may not be needed for early dinner but we better be sure.

hi Carolyn,

we will probably be in Burlington that weekend for our wedding anniversary( 34 years!!! ) I'll let you know when our plans are confirmed. Sure would like to join you!

Jo
Let me congratulate you on 34 years. I forgot to mention that our anniversary is also in August. August 27. 40 years this year. So we both can celebrate.

Yea! We will all be celebrating. My birthday is Aug 26.

Update on Leunig's. I called and spoke to Steven. Earliest availability is 7:45. Special event in Burlington that weekend? They do not take reservations for outside and he suggested coming a little early and snagging an outside table, or maybe we should do a late lunch? We should have a backup plan too in case of bad weather or unforeseen circumstances. What do you all suggest? Lew?

The fact that they don't take reservations for outdoor seating or all inside seating leads me to believe we shouldn't have a really long wait if we just showed up before 5pm...perhaps 4:30. I checked the Seven Days website...our local arts and entertainment weekly...and I don't see any big special event that weekend other than the Champlain Valley Fair.

If it's just too busy at Leunig's, we can just walk up or down Church Street to a different restaurant. I think if we arrive earlier than 5pm or do a late lunch, we shouldn't have a problem.

Sounds good to me.

Really neat everyone is celebrating - birthday or wedding anniversary. Quite a coincidence

see you all next weekend.

Only one week to go. I am really looking forward to visiting Burlington and Quebec. Actually I will also be getting into Ontario and doing a 'cruise' in the 1000 island region. See you next week Jo.

No one organized a shopping spree like the big one in South Florida.

One week from today...

Hope we have the weather we're enjoying today in Burlington on the 25th! We're hosting the USA Triathlon Nationals today and it's a beautiful day for it.

See you all Saturday...

I am so looking forward to next Saturday. There are plenty of opportunities for shopping on the Church Street Marketplace if anyone is so inclined.

Burlington is a busy little place.

I can use some Ben and Jerry's Home made from their Scoop shop up the road from the restaurant.

This is going to be so much fun! We will have so much to talk about that you can't really do on the roll call. I am looking forward to good company, good wine and good food, and hopefully good weather.

Hi all,

our eldest son who lives in Calgary ( we have not seen him in over a year )
changed his vacations plans and is arriving next Saturday morning he then asked us if we minded him going to see friends in the Laurentians for the weekend , so it all works out for going to Burlington and seeing our son for the next 2 weeks after that! Phew...
