I figured I'd start this off. Although we're pretending that this whole cortexian world tour thing ISN'T a competition among cities to prove who can throw the best meetups, we should still manage to show cortex some love. He's here Tuesday September 29th.
The weather should be good - what about starting at Zeitgeist? Outside, good beer, the tamale lady, etc. We could potentially adjourn to Pauline's or another nearby restaurant if some folks are less enthused about meeting in a bar. I imagine there might be some sort of wandering about the city earlier in the day for those of us with fewer work-type restrictions. Maybe the Academy of Sciences? Also bacon donuts.
I did try to convince cortex that he should be here for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, to no avail. I even mentioned the banjos. Any other mefites interested in a subsequent HSB gathering?
