West End Girls Lunch Bunch - Page 2
by Kay Forrester Barnes

Lunch Bunch 51 - The Sweet Tea Restaurant (2017)   See Photos
It's hard to top our September Lunch Bunch at The Club in September, but we did get our next 50 off to a good start at The Sweet Tea Restaurant in January. The West End Golden Girls enjoyed a fun filled day. We had our own private room, great food and fellowship. Join us next time!

Lunch Bunch 50 - 50th Celebration at The Club (2016)   See Photos
What a wonderful celebration of the West End Lunch Bunch's 50th lunch together. On September 27th, about 55 ladies attended our lovely luncheon held at The Club. Not only was the food delicious but the fellowship was wonderful. We even had 5 first timers! Linda Barnes and Nancy Lou Whitlow did a beautiful job with the original art work of Linda attached to a vase of fresh flowers for the Table Decorations. These vases were given away as prizes for someone at each table. We look forward to many more Lunch Bunches. NOTE: From now on we will be known as the 'West End Golden Girls'.

Lunch Bunch 49 - Lloyd's Restaurant (2016)   See Photos
The West End Girls Lunch Bunch was held at Lloyds Restaurant on June 7th. We had about 40 ladies there, one gentleman, and 2 grands. We enjoyed good food and had a fun time, as usual. We are all looking forward to our 50th Lunch Bunch on September 27th. It will be a very special event that you don't want to miss. Come back to West End Online later for complete details!

On March 22nd, the West End Girls Lunch Bunch celebrated a beautiful spring day at Bistro Provare, the Culinary School at Jefferson State Community College. We had a wonderful, happy time and even had 3 First Timers! Bistro Provare has become a tradition that we look forward to every year. If you didn't make this one, then plan on coming next year!

The West End Girls met for our winter Lunch Bunch Pappadeaux seafood restaurant on January 18th. About 30 ladies attended. Sue Mann drove from Marietta, Georgia to get in on the fun and we had our usual Tuscaloosa girls and Shirley Powell from Jacksonville.

In October, despite rainy weather, 40 West End Girls showed up for a superb lunch at The Bright Star restaurant in Bessemer. We were given a history of the restaurant, which was established 105 years ago. The Bright Star, which features Greek style steaks and seafood, is the oldest family owned restaurant in Alabama.

Lunch Bunch 45 - The Egg & I (2015)   See Photos
It's "NO YOLK". July 13th found us West End Girls at "The Egg & I" in Vestavia. We had a private room which is always nice. It's always so much fun to see old West End friends again and to make new ones. If you haven't attended any of our Lunch Bunch meetings, give it a try, I think you'll be glad you did.

Lunch Bunch 44 - Bistro Provare (2015)   See Photos
The West End Girls enjoying a splendid meal at Bistro Provare. Despite the rainy day, we had 40 West End ladies in attendance. Four were first timers! It is such fun to spend time with our ol' West End classmates. If you have never attended, we urge you to do so. We hope to see you there!

Lunch Bunch 43 - Jesse's Steak & Seafood (2015)
   See Photos
On January 19th, we had a delicious lunch and great fun at Jesse's Steak & Seafood near the Galleria. Today was special indeed as we had a nice private and very sunny room. It is always such fun to see old friends again. We had the return of Tracy Benton and Marie Clarke, which was great. We also had two first timers: Janice Ballard '67) and Deborah Warren '70.

Lunch Bunch 42 - Dodiyos Greek (2014)
On October 1st, the West End Girls had a great time at DoDiYos (in Homewood at Soho Square) for a taste of Greek fare. The food, fun and fellowship were very special. Kathy Dismukes, who recently retired from Royal Cup, joined us and plans to come again. If you haven't been to one of our Lunch Bunches, come join us. We guarantee you will enjoy it!

   See Photos
On July 11, the West End Girls Lunch Bunch had a wonderful Luncheon at a new Italian Restaurant called Villagio's at Ross Bridge. As you can see from the photos, everyone (we had about 35 ladies) enjoyed themselves as we visited, renewed friendships, and made new friends. We had two first timers, Gayle Atchison and Virginia Gillespie.

Lunch Bunch 40 - Bistro Provare (2014)   See Photos
The West End Girls held our 40th Lunch Bunch on April 24th at Bistro Provare, the Culinary School at Jefferson State College. The five course meal was extra special and we even had 3 first timers: Barbara Blanton, Betty Martin, and Sherry Baldwin. Judith Ratliff came from Texas, Brenda Mitchell came from Georgia, Margaret Cobb and Sandra Fredrick came from Huntsville. We had a great time and hope to see you at the next Lunch Bunch!

Lunch Bunch 39 - Red Lobster (2014)   See Photos
During a cold January day, the West End Girls defied James Spann's weather prediction and met at the Red Lobster in Vestavia for lots of good seafood and conversation. We had two first timers, Joy Bodie and Pat Bahr. It's always exciting to have new girls join our group!

Kay Forrester - The West End Girls had a delightful luncheon at Bistro Provare, the Culinary School at Jefferson State Community College. We will definitely do this again! The food and service were amazing and of course it was fun catching up. Our youngest attendee was Mary Grace McCord and our oldest was Mary Edna Greene. Wayne King was our invited guest. Wayne told us about his recently published book, 'Lake of Dreams', a delightful story of the quest for the world's largest bass.

Lunch Bunch 37 - Creekside Tavern (2013)   See Photos

Kay Forrester - We had a great summer lunch bunch on Monday, July 22nd at Creekside Tavern in Patton Creek Shopping Center, Hoover. We had our own private party room. It was fun eating and meeting with our West End friends again!

Lunch Bunch 36 - Lunch at Anne Williams Home (2013)   See Photos
Anne Williams - The West End Girls Lunch Bunch celebrated a beautiful southern luncheon at the lovely home of Anne Williams. It was the perfect setting for our ladies to mix and mingle and of course share stories of past and present days. Anne prepared the delicious lunch herself with 4 homemade deserts! Our next luncheon will be in July. More e information later.

Lunch Bunch 35 - Zea's Rotisserie & Grill (2013)
  See Photos
Kay Forrester - We had a really neat time at our March 2013 Lunch Bunch at Zea's Rotisserie & Grill, Brookwood Mall. We even had a first timer, Pamela Mc Brayer. A special treat was seeing Annette and Vonette Parker again, who have not been able to join us in quite sometime. Of course our regular long distance winner was Brenda Mitchell, who rarely misses a Lunch Bunch. She and her husband drive each time from Marietta, Georgia! The food at Zea's was excellent, so if you haven't been there, you might want to give it a try.
