I was sad that last year there was no community dinner, and I missed the one the year before when Jonathan Schwartz and Rich Green made an appearance. This year I am determined not to miss it, and so I am calling for a community (pay-your-own-way) dinner on Monday, April 12th, at Pedro’s – a Mexican restaurant that has vegetarian and vegan options. I think Monday is a better time because many folks arrive Sunday evening, or even Monday morning (there are tutorials on Monday, but not everyone attends).

Pedro’s can handle large groups of people, but we would like to have a vague idea of how many people are attending — while you are not required to RSVP, we would like to make an accurate reservation at Pedro’s….In 2008, there was a wiki page with a list of attendees, and I was disappointed because there were so many people on that list I wanted to see.

Meet us at 6:30 pm on Monday in the lobby of the Hyatt Santa Clara, or at 7 pm at Pedro’s. If you want to come later, just show up at Pedro’s whenever you can.

Since commenting on this blog does not require registration (as the wiki does), I invite folks to comment on this blog post and I’ll add you to the list of attendees:
