I know we have a ton of Southern Californians here, including at least three of our currently active members here in the Inland Empire. To my knowledge, none of us are going to make it to this year's JordanCon. How about we get together and throw ourselves an epic pity party? :happy:

So, we could do this either on April 16 or 17. Maybe we could have a nice, fancy dinner in Riverside's Mission Inn. We could go somewhere cheaper instead, if you want. We could talk about the same kinds of things the JordanCon folks will be talking about on panels, call over to Atlanta and say hi to people, and even prank call Barm. What does everyone think?

I am tentatively interested. I live like 10 minutes away from the Mission Inn so that's not a problem but I'm not sure what my schedule will be yet. The term hasn't started yet so everything's still up in the air.

I am possibly interested. The only problem is that I'm running a half marathon the morning of the 17th in La Jolla, so I'd have to head up earlier in the day on the 16h, or try to meet up later after the race on the 17th. Let me know the timeframe that you are thinking for that weekend, hopefully I can make it for a bit at least. It would be really cool to meet up with some fellow DM'ers in SoCal. Thanks.

The timeframe is wide open right now, and I have the entire weekend free, so whatever works for the other attendees will be what we use. :smile:

You're right--I called the number I had for you from 2008, and some stranger guy answered. I'll just get your new number from Nae or someone. :tongue:

Really? I can't remember what number that even was, I've changed it 3 times since then.

Okay, so is the 16th in the early evening at Mission Inn good for all of you? Shen, do you know what time the nice restaurant there opens?

Depends on which restaurant we want to go to:

http://www.missioninn.com/dining/

- Duaneā€™s Prime Steaks and Seafood is the nicest, requiring "business casual attire". It opens at 5:30pm and has an attached wine bar called 54 Degrees.

- Las Campanas is the Mexican restaurant. Dinner starts at 4.

- Bella Trattoria is the Italian one, also starting at 4.

- And there's the regular Mission Inn Restaurant. Dinner starts at 4:30, with a Saturday Prime Rib Buffet starting at 5:30.

I've been to the normal Mission Inn Restaurant several times, but haven't had a chance to try out any of the others yet.

I have to admit, Las Campanas looks really fun in the photo on the site:

I haven't been to any of them, and they all look good to me. Let's see what the others think.

I've only ever been to Las Campanas (well, I went to the wine bar once, too). Anyway, it's outdoor seating in the patio area and it really is quite beautiful. It's a less expensive than the other Mission Inn restaurants as well. Also, they serve enormous margaritas. :biggrin:

Hey guys, sorry for the delay in responding to this. Unfortunately, I can't do dinner next Saturday night. However, if you plan on getting together earlier on Saturday afternoon, please let me know and I'll try to get up there. Normally I'm more flexible, but that weekend is jammed up already where I'm running a road race on the 17th.

If for some reason, I can't meet up with you next weekend let's try to get together before too long. Thanks guys!

Maybe we could meet for lunch at one of those places instead of dinner, then. Thoughts?

I could do Sunday lunch instead of Saturday dinner. However we can get the most people together!

Lunch would actually work much better for me, too. I know Las Campanas does lunch but I'm not sure about the others.

Oh, I misread TBP's post as Sunday. Saturday's not a problem for me, either.

Looks like Campanas is the favorite so far. TBP?

Hey guys, Saturday afternoon sounds great. Will 1:30 work for everyone? I have a commitment on Saturday morning which runs until 11:30, so I just want to make sure I allow myself enough time to get up there. Please let me know when you have a chance. Thanks!
