Well I was thinking if we did it in DC (free museums you know) we could march on the mall and get some news coverage for our cause but I guess we can try and get the coverage no matter where were are. Now is it Maryland everyone is thinking about now? Sorry I'm confused after skimming the posts so fast.

I have a question, is everyone trying to meet at an existing convention like the University of Baltimore or trying to create a new convention? Who would organize it?

I just saw this thread...and thought it would be AWESOME!!

In my area, in August, they are having a gluten-free picnic, sponsored by the Cel Kids network, for all the little gluten-free kids in the area. I was told that last year, companies came out of the woodwork to donate stuff and that all families in attendance went home with a huge bag full of products.

It would be awesome to have that type of "convention" -- food, families, and fun. In a safe environment for those who are touched by Celiac and Gluten Intolerance. I'd SO be there if I had ample opportunity to plan for it!

Count me in, wherever, I'll be there!

I'm new to all this, but wondered about getting Annalise Roberts involved ...good promotion for her cookbook, maybe contacting OSI Restaurant Partners, Inc. for sponsorship. Most of their restaurants have gluten free menus on their websites. Again, great exposure for them.

http://investors.out...l...&highlight=

From OSI's site:
Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, it was founded in 1988 and today operates 931 Outback Steakhouses (domestic and international), 209 Carrabba's Italian Grills, 108 Bonefish Grills, 41 Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bars, 22 Roy's, 35 Cheeseburger in Paradises and four Lee Roy Selmon's restaurants. The company has restaurants in all 50 states, and Outback Steakhouse restaurants are open in 21 countries.

(I'm so excited to know about all their chains! I knew about Outback and Bonefish, but didn't know Carrabba's and Fleming's. Yum!, Memphis has these!)
