Things to consider:

* We need to get the word out. Make sure to Favorite this post, or check back in your My Comments, in case details change. Drop an email to folks who are "close to you" on your profile, as not everyone reads MetaTalk.

* While I figure those of us who were at last year's meetup can recognize each other, we may need a way of identifying each other, particularly if the place is hopping. I vote for yelling "Captain Moonlight!" in a bad Irish accent.

* Floydd will apparently be sober, so we'll need to find something other than "making fun of drunk Floydd" to talk about.

* In case we spill out into the street, and a riot breaks out, remember to pack your plastic shields and billyclubs.

Huh, that Flickr link looks dead. That's too bad. Anyone still got those pics around so that we can repost (preferrably with a target superimposed, so you know just who you need to assassinate)?

Here are Hlewegast's pictures from the last meetup.
Does Wonder's have paneling??

That map is still wrong - now the other bank is marked. Heh.

I'll try to make it, but I'm getting married on the 26th, so I might be elbow-deep in in-laws and ennui by that point. So no promises.

But interrobang will be in town, and that's as good a reason as any to drink to puke and puke to live.

I'll be there! And so will the practically never-commenting Sybil!

And I'll make damned sure that rocketman can take some time out to be there, too.

I (and spouse, probably) will be in attendance. Huzzah!

Sorry 'bout the busted link, gents.

I am about 85% certain Wonder's is paneling-free. Boo!

"But interrobang will be in town, and that's as good a reason as any to drink to puke and puke to live."

Yeah. Slow down, buddy.

What is it with the east-side-o-centrism of the meetups?

Family in town, but will try to swing by.

P.S. Didn't the mayor say we have to pay $5 for the privilege of rioting this year?
