    Re: WonderCon in San Francisco - February

    rly wanting to do it on saturday again? I know last year they had a movie premiere saturday night, so people had to choose between meeting or going to that. This year they haven't announced anything, but if there is another movie premiere like last year, would it be best to be prepared and meet at another time?

    just asking because I would really like not to miss the meet up :P

    The 501st Dinner is on Friday, so that is out, while Saturday is not a great night it is the only option for many. Guess we could do it Thursday before the show starts, but I could not attend. Let me know if people want to move it to Thursday.

    What's up Jon,

    Just checking if you got me confirmed for dinner, Saturday at Chevy's
    Hey Anthony. I made reservations for seven people - whoever shows up. After last year I learned that half the people (or less) who confirm will actually attend. So, it's basically the people I know would come (including you). I figured that anyone can always pull up a chair.

    My vote is for Saturday as planned. You can see a movie anytime but hanging out and having a few beers with friends that you only get to see once or twice a year is an easy decision for me. You have to make a choice and it's a no brainer for for me.

    That's my feeling too...

    The biggest thing competing with dinner is the Masquerade. Unfortunately anything planned on that weekend is going to compete with something else and people will just have to make choices.

    Between work, root canals and other dental hijinks I missed this. I'll call today to make sure we get another seat.

    Update - called and we now have room for 8. I'll get a highchair for Ben, he dribbles.

    Okay, won't be checking the board much for the next couple of days. If you need my cell# PM me, not posting it here

    I'll check later tonight and send the number it to those who are attending the dinner if they want it.

    Number for Chevy's is 415-543-8060. They are at 201 3rd Street. Here's a link to the map

    Darren was there in his Fett, and Craig in his Jango. We also all met at the Chevy's on Saturday - 12 of us in fact. Sorry we missed you man!

    The two customs I saw were made mostly out of cardboard. Not sure, but I don't think they were from here.

    Re: WonderCon in San Francisco - February

    It was packed like Comic Con.

    I was pretty worn out after a day of fighting the crowds and didn't make it to the dinner. I am glad that my seat didn't go to waste.

    Hey, it was my pleasure. I do wish I did not have to drive home so that I could have a couple of those shots that were going around.

    Would have also enjoyed spending more time with folks. Seemed like a very busy three days.
