We are planning a nationwide JAP meetup on March 23-26, 2012. It is in the first stages of planning but I want to get the word out early so the ones who want to come, can plan for their time off and finances. It will be on "Jane McMillan's Island" in beautiful Dania Beach, Florida, near Ft Lauderdale. We are planning a cook off challenge with mystery ingredients, a sunday brunch, 2 restaurants that were on Diner's Drive In's & Dives, that we want to eat out at. We will have tons of fun, food, relaxing on the beach on Jane's backyard, and foolishness..along with cooking, eating, drinking and laughing till we wet our pants (pack the Depends,LOL). More info will be posted here as it is collected. Feel free to post suggestions in the comments as they will all be considered. But remember this is a extended weekend event so there's not time for everything. I am looking forward to meeting all my Foodie Sisters.
We will miss spring break by 2 weeks one way and Easter by 2 weeks the other..so it's perfect timing.

I am not going to tell you all where to stay, just PLEASE please find one fairly near the park.
This area is a few miles north of Miami and driving here is to say the least, congested. It takes awhile to go even short distances with traffic. You don't want to spend all your time driving to get somewhere.
You also don't want to stay in a not so nice neighborhood.
The Hollywood and Dania area would be the closest, here are a few of them:
1.laQuinta Inn and Suites
2620 N 26th Ave
Hollywood, FL 33020
2.Springhill Suites ( all rooms are suites)
151 SW 18 Court
Dania Beach, FL 33004
3.Motel 6 (right down the road from me, cheapest, but not as nice)
825 E Dania Beach Blvd.
Dania Bdach. FL 33004
4.Hampton Inn and Suites
2500 Stirling Road
Hollywood, FL 33020
5. Confort Inn there is a confort next door to the Hampton, don't have the ady for that.
