PS. SWMBO is particularly excited about seeing you and your Frau again. You are going to the afternoon session, correct?

Focus
Yeah, the Frau and I are looking forward to it also and it would great to see you guys again. We're hitting the afternoon session for sure and I think most of the others are too... haven't heard much though. You may want to take advantage of Boston's offer and have him get some afternoon tickets for you. I'll hold these until you get something decided.

Right now, we're looking into a private car / limo to get us from Goldsbubba to Durham to dinner / afterparty and back home. The rugrat makes decisions more complicated - babysitter, bring along, hotel room? - but we're exploring all options.

Looks like the official host hotel (Millenium) is still charging for their shuttle. Last year they also ran some irritating shuttle hours.

You guys (or anyone) interested in hitting the Flying Saucer that night?

Is everyone staying in Durham or Cary? Beth and I volunteered to host an afterparty at our house, but if you guys would rather hang out at the Flying Saucer all night that's fine, too.
I just joined Weight Watchers on Saturday, so I'm not sure how much fun I'm going to be.

I haven't been to the Flying Saucer, but I've heard how great it is. That's definitely an option. They have food, right? We will have some friends Miami visiting that weekend specifically for this event, so we definitely want to do something Triangle-local to show them around. I think we're going to hire a driver - possibly a limo - so there may be some additional room for others in the way of getting around town.

Most generous offer and I wasn't trying to steer people in a different direction... just had those 100 taps on the brain at that moment.
