Yikes - is it that time again already?!!

Once again Christmas is not far around the corner, and 'tis the season to organise our traditional Christmas get-togethers within the TravelBlog community.

We're looking for TBers who are able to act as a host for a casual meetup, allowing members to celebrate the Christmas season wherever they are in the world.

All you'll need to do is be a contact, decide a date and time which suits (close to Christmas preferably), and make a restaurant booking or organise an alternate location.
If this sounds like you, just post below which city you'll be in and we'll add you to the list.

For anyone interested in attending one of these casual festive meetups, just send a private message to the person listed as the contact for the city you'll be in, and they'll let you know the details.

In case you're new to the TB family, this invitation also includes you - so don't be shy!

For photos of previous TB get-togethers, have a flick through the TravelBlog Album

Since the Binkleys are not going to be in San Francisco, I will be happy to organize the SF Bay Area one. The only concern is that since it is the busy season in the kitchen, I would look at doing it on a Monday. Any thoughts California? Would be great to meet some other locals. Reply to this

We will be in Venice for one month at Christmas. We'll be totally new to the city, but would be happy to arrange something if any other travelbloggers are around at the same time. It would be nice to meet up. Reply to this

Dave and I can host a gathering if anyone will be in the Honolulu area any time between Dec. 15 & 20. We can make some arrangements to get together.
