Start crossing your fingers that it doesn't rain on the 17th, because I will be flying back on the 18th So many things going on and I need to meet up with with Trevor in Seattle instead of staying through the weekend. I can't wait to see/meet everyone!

That is way cool Menagerie...fingers are crossed.

In the meantime, my wife has floated a great suggestion. For those who have been to the zoo in the past, you know that the concessions aren't really designed for having a true meal.

That being said, my wife's suggestion is that we all gather at one of our favorite Diner's which is not far from the zoo. Feed bags can filled and emptied while there and conveniently allows the tour of the zoo to be more pleasant.

I'll be back with directions to both locations.

Directions:

To Pete’s Diner – 570 E. Fordham Rd. Bronx, NY 10458

Quote:
From Queens & Eastern LI:

Throggs Neck Bridge or Whitestone Bridge to 95W (Cross Bronx Expwy) to Rosedale Av./Bronx River Pkwy exit.
**Note: This exit is one of the many quirks about NY. You will go up ramp and the intersection of Rosedale Av. comes up immediately with a traffic light. Once you go through the intersection, you have to merge to the right to take the ramp onto the Bronx River Pkwy. Take Fordham Rd. exit (when merging onto Fordham Rd., you will see Zoo on your left. Go under overpass. The Diner is located two blocks after the first intersection on your left. You can park in the White Castle Parking lot.

From Southern Queens/Brooklyn

TriBoro Bridge to Bruckner Expwy. Bruckner Expwy to Bronx River Pkwy Exit. Bronx River Pkwy to “Boston Rd/Bronx Zoo exit. Take Bronx River Pkwy to Fordham Rd. exit (when merging onto Fordham Rd., you will see Zoo on your left. Go under over pass. The Diner is located two blocks after the first intersection on your left. You can park in the White Castle Parking lot.

From NJ

George Washington Bridge to 95E (Cross Bronx Expwy). Cross Bronx Expwy to Rosedale Av./Bronx River Pkwy exit. Stay in left lane and take circle to the right. At end of circle, merge to the right and enter ramp for Bronx River Pkwy. Take Fordham Rd. exit (when merging onto Fordham Rd., you will see Zoo on your left). Go under over pass. The Diner is located two blocks after the first intersection on your left. You can park in the White Castle Parking lot.
Via Public Transportation:

Quote:
Subway

Take #2 train to Pelham Parkway Station. Walk across Pelham Pkwy and take #12 bus. Take #12 bus to Fordham Rd/Hoffman St. Diner is across the street on left…White Castle is adjacent.
For anyone who wishes to go directly to the zoo, follow the above directions to the Bronx River Pkwy. Instead of taking the Fordham Rd. exit, take the Boston Rd/Bronx Zoo exit. Follow the signs for the Zoo entrance.

My thinking is that we all gather at Pete’s at 11:00 am.

Let me know what you guys think.
