One possible idea suggestion for lunch:

Though Huntsville may be considered to some to be a small community...
Did you know that in last months GQ Magazine listed the New Zion Missionary 
Baptist Church BBQ eating establishment (to some known as "Holy Smoke") to 
Pretty cool, huh

My suggestion may be to contact "Holy Smoke" and maybe set something
up, eat there or deliver it back... (thinking while typing)
They take orders ahead of time... (still thinking...) If we let them
know before hand that x # of people (guesstimation) they may work us
through a little faster?

I don't quite know where to take this topic right now, but we can discuss 
the possibility at the Populace Social this Thursday.
