After doing some configuring, these layouts seem to work the best for us as a group at the rally.

I want INPUT on which configuration you like the best since some folks don't care where they park, and others have certain places they would like to be.

Some places popular with locals include:

Bella-Itallia Ristorante (downtown Cape)

Grecian Steakhouse (Town Plaza Shopping Center)
They have an excellent salad bar, good soups, buffet as well as a full menu . . . I just ate there two weeks ago and the food was excellent and quite reasonably priced.

Port Cape Girardeau Restaurant & Lounge (Riverfront -- Downtown Cape)

Great Wall Chinese Restaurant (on William Street)

The Pasta House Company (West Park Mall)

There are many great restaurants in Cape, and these are among the "old-timers" that we often choose when entertaining friends from out of town.

Most anywhere is fine with us, let the majority rule. We can eat nearly anything (well maybe not sushi).

I kinda like the last one, seems like that puts us more in a group.

Sandy,

I take it from previous conversations that a shell fish and shrimp bar are not good ideas for dinner?

Heading out shortly to pick up P. Wee at Lambert. We'll probably take him to Imo's this evening so he can experience St. Louis style original pizza.

That would not be good! But most anything else!

The third one. It puts us more in a group across from each other I think.

I am liking that one more and more myself. We could even put someone in the other paved spot on the north side of the rec center if they wanted it.

Not Imos...

Don't torture him with Imos. Not a fan of the square beyond compare. Poor Pee Wee, well at least he'll have stories about the bad pizza he had on his trip...

Sorry it pangs you so much to hear that we are taking him to Imo's. We happen to LOVE Imo's. Do tell me where you would suggest we take him with his one evening in St. Louis.

It's hard for us to form an opinion based on the iPhone display. What color indicates our sites?

We'd vote for the layout that is easiest to get into as we all queue up to park after the caravan.

Another factor would be a layout that is conducive to having perhaps more of the public touring trailers during the open house than we normally do.

Just let us know what is decided. We're at Hilltop Campground near Goreville, Il tonight and heading to Cape midday tomorrow. We're staying at Cape RV Park tomorrow night. I like having full hookups.
