Sorry it's not happening for me this year. I have chef school going on then and would not be able to get the time free to go. But have fun folks.

What day are you showing up?  I'm planning on the first couple days, see how I manage in the growing crowd.  Will cut and run by Friday, probably.   :blush:

I've had my con tickets for months, but I'm still on the waiting list for a hotel.  Until I get that, I won't book my flight.

I won't know about my first choice of lodging for a while yet, but my backup is campsite reservations slightly up the coast.  I'll be checking out the trolley and the train, and mean to avoid driving in and parking.    :eek:

Sounds like a good idea.  Is it close to a trolley or bus line?

Mrs. S. and I will be there.  Just look for the ~ 6'7" guy in cargo shorts and t-shirt, and the 5'2" gal with the mane to make Aslan jealous.  ;)  For meals this year we'll be having breakfasts at Cafe 222, bringing lunch with us, and having dinner at places like Peohe's.

As usual, if anyone has any questions for a local, let me know.

General heads-up - supposedly they are only allowing on-line registration this year, and the 4-day passes are sold out.  1-day registration is still available.

Best to all!

If you'd like, Thia, when we get closer to the Con I can PM you my cell number (I might be changing it between now and then, if we get our national account at work set up in time).  If anyone else would like it as well, let me know.
