I'm willing to split a room is anyone needs a roomie. Warning: I snore and tend to mumble in my sleep. Especially when I'm somewhere I'm unfamiliar with. :)
I'd love to share a room with you (I too am a mumbling snorer).

I have had such great times at our Meetups and such. So I am particularly sad that I won't be able to make this one. :cry:

Instead, I will be in NYC with family, a vacation we started planning two years ago when we met up with cousins for the Eclipse in Oregon. Wish I could detour for a day or two to Myrtle Beach, but I would suffer mightily (especially because we have center orchestra seats to Hamilton that Friday night!). I will be there in spirit and expect to make the next meetup even if I have to move mountains.

The ocean was still warm in October.
Yeah, no kidding. The ocean is ALWAYS still warm in October. You live in someplace like Maine (hint, hint) or Michigan (wink, wink) or Iowa or Minnesota (say no more), and you think, "Well it will be fun to see everybody but the ocean will be too cold to swim in by mid-October."

But you would be wrong. The water circulates up from the Caribbean and it's always nice and warm in October, so you can get a last (or heck, maybe your first) ocean swim in for the year.

Which sound all wonderful and lovely, until you realize one of the people that will be coming has an unreasonable fear of things in the ocean that can eat you.

I know, I know! I entered unsuccessfully into every lottery for two tickets, every single day that it was here in L.A. Then did the same for the San Diego performance. One day they added a special performance and every seat was put into the lottery. Didn't win then and knew no one who did. So, yes, I feel happy that we scored two tickets in a great location. We are also seeing Jeff Daniels in To Kill a Mockingbird. Then I'm getting a second job at McDonald's to pay for my expensive habit. :lol:

NEW HOTEL - TOP SEKRIT

OK, the original deal did not work out. I couldn't get the guy to answer phone calls or emails. Plus, I don't know what I was thinking, putting the name of the hotel in a public thread. There are still some birthers, and who knows, by now some Sov Cits, who would love to come hassle us on our meetup.

But I have another deal, on the beach, with prices as follows:
  • Ocean View efficiency - 2 Double Beds, Full Kitchen, Side View Balcony - Sleeps 4 -$79.00+
  • Ocean Front Efficiency - 2 Double Beds, Full Kitchen, Ocean Front Balcony - Sleeps 4 - $89.00+
  • Ocean Front Executive Suite - 2 Double Beds in Bedroom, Separate Living Area w/Murphy Wall Bed, Full Kitchen, Ocean Front Balcony - Sleeps 6 -$109.00+
  • Ocean View Suite - 2 Double Beds in Bedroom, Separate Living Area w/Murphy Wall Bed, Full Kitchen, Side View Balcony - Sleeps 6 - $95.00+
Here's what happens next:

1. They'll send me a contract, I'll sign it.

2. I will then ask for PMs from anyone who is going. Then y'all can make reservations at your leisure.

3. I usually make a secret usergroup for each meetup and create a secret forum for it, so that ONLY the people who are going to the meetup can see what's in the secret thread. That way we can exchange cell phone numbers, hotel room numbers, and make plans for things like meals and side trips. I've done this before several times, and it works very, very well.

4. But don't look for the name of the new hotel in public, because I'm not posting it in public.

More will be revealed.

The Princess and I are going to try to make it. I have a surgical procedure on 9/20 so depends on how things go there and with recovery.

Don’t know about that double bed thingy though.

Foggy,

I don’t know, I keep trying tables and they are all the cool kids’ table. What’s up with that? I’m not going to risk it unless there is a Denny’s where I can make presentments to the Fogbar and pick up the true bill.

Where’s the closest Denny’s to the hotel?

Excellent! That will help cut down on my cost of hiring the Fogbar to investigate a conspiracy theory. (I may have mentioned something about it on another thread...)

I’ll also probably be bringing along a chef or two. At least two people that work with me personally that have been known to prepare food with extreme prejudice. And vegetables too. also.

Just in case.
