I'm In!

I have been fretting about the costs of this, but I ended up with a meeting in SF that week, so I'm in for both dinner and the flight!

Excellent, shaping up nicely! We're up to 19 on the flight, not including Captain Denny and FO. Who wants to be #20?

Have any decisions been made respecting where the FRi dinner will be held?

I'm trying to finalize my hotel plans. My initial plan was to spend both Thurs & Fri night in the city.

However, since I'm without car, I'm wondering transit-wise, for Fri night, if I'm better off staying out by SFO.

If so, I'd likely stay at either the SFO Crowne Plaza or the Fairfield Inn.

Neither are my ideal choices but I gotta wrap up those promos, ya know

Sorry about the delay on a restaurant for Friday night. I finally got around to making a reservation at Max's Burlingame for 8PM, where we'll have the banquet room. I made it late since many people are flying in. We can have a pre-party in the Regency Club at the Hyatt Regency, given that many of us are Diamond members and should be able to guest several into the club.

If anyone else wants to join us either for dinner or the flight, by all means do. We'd love to have you!

Any plans for post-flight DO(s)? I'll be downtown through Monday.

Well, there ya go. Crowne Plaza is a half-block south of Max's.

For folks coming from the airport, take the Holiday Inn Express SFO South/Burlingame shuttle. Max's is next door.

It's about time you listened to me as I've been hucking you about Max's for the longest time . Now I just have took at the finances and transportation as I'll probably be car-less by that time

We could share a shuttle from the airport to Max's

Great! Dinner on Friday as well, or just the flight?

As far as Saturday goes, for those of you spending the night in Chicago, where are you staying?
