Looks like i will need to be back in Tempe Saturday evening.
Will still be down for Saturday during the day, but will miss the gathering.

(1) Old Pueblo Grill
(2) Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse
So what others would several of us want to see on the list? I propose they have to be proposed and seconded by someone else to be in the Poll.

Heck - if it's too early for some, we can always call it a really late lunch; those of us not hitting the star parties can always meet up later for an 11:00 p.m. "breakfast"...

We may want to make the "big" group event lunch - but even then, there's really no available "window" in the speakers' schedules.
My day is pretty much open, so I'll go along with whatever the group decides on - although I'll put a vote in for OPG, as it's a fairly short drive from ASAE.

We're getting our threads criss-crossed. I'm making the same post to the Star Party thread.
It looks to me like most CN folks want to get together Sat Eve for dinner and socializing. At or after 5pm seems to be the best time for a dinner rendezvous. And, there are just a few folks wanting to go to TAAA-CAC star party that night. I'm glad to host a group to the star party Saturday night. I remember someone said they were going to dark site on Friday and another said Sunday. I can't speak for them about "hosting a group"...but, remind folks, there are star parties other nights.
Let's poll folks for these 2 scenarios, and plan to get together at Old Pueblo Grill. Those going to star party can rendezvous earlier, say 3:30 - 4:30, have a bite, and as the "in town" group starts arriving around 5pm, everyone will have time to meet and greet. The star party group could begin heading out about 5:30 as the in town group is gathering for their dinner. Two groups, one place, a little overlap, and from there, "the night is ours." The star party group can head south on Alvernon to I-10 and be on their way to the dark site quickly. OPG is 10 minutes from downtown convention center, and 10 minutes from I-10. I would probably head back to Tucson around 2am. But, I'm flexible.
I'll be glad to contact OPG, see if they can accommodate us with these scenarios and I'll get a reservation if this works for everyone. If they have a good idea what we want to do, we won't hit some unexpected snag. I have a star party reservation for 1 car, 4 people and so far just one passenger (looking forward to seeing you, Shneor) and room for 2...

Count me in for the 5pm seating.
