I can take a ride tomorrow and search out a few parking lots and prices.

And woo hoo BoDiva! Way to organize.

Joy Tsin Lau has a website. And yes, they serve alcohol. The address is 1026 Race. (And I figured with more than a month left until our little shindig, I'd hold some details for suspense. Silly me.)
Come on kids. Let me know if you're in!

And big thanks for the disabled parking info, BoDiva. I'm still on my feet, so I don't need any special accomodations other than parking. Just never pick me for your relay team.

Maybe it'll just be you and me doing Shaq impressions at each other across the lazy susan.
Sadly, we need at least six to rate a lazy Susan! But I'm taking that as a yes. So we're on our way.
Puds38, this week is the Auto Show, not the time to be tooling around the neighborhood, since, obviously, folks who come to the Auto Show tend not to take public transportation and the neighborhood is a zoo.
On the day of DimSumCon--The Philly it is the Horticultural Society members only day of the Flower Show. So it will be busy in the neighborhood, but not as busy as it can be. If you plan to park north and west of the restaurant, you'll do better. There are loads of lots that cater to Hahneman and commuters in that direction, and are therefore cheaper than the ones that cater to the Convention Center.
There is also a really big lot across from the Reading Terminal Market (entrance off of Arch between 12th and 13th) that gives a discount if you get stamps from merchants. So plan to shop at the Amish and farmers market and such, and get discounted parking.

1) I work on Saturday afternoons
2) I already have plans to be in NYC that weekend.
3) I'm still scared of dim sum since the last TARcon.
Have fun, everybody, and I'll catch y'all next time!

Count mr p & me as definites. We'll have to work on our Shaq impressions.
If you like horticultural stuff, mr p highly recommends the Philadelphia Flower Show. He went 6 or 8 years back and still has the orchid he picked up there. It blooms beautifully every year. And apparently the displays are amazing.

See you all there!

And with the Psuedo's and Puds38 we have enough for a lazy Susan!!! (Puds, are you coming solo? And before when in the AM is the early bird parking?)
If you want to do the Flower Show, you'll have to stay over. It opens for the public on Sunday. (and Sunday morning is the least busy time. It can be a real zoo.)

Gameon, you wouldn't be a hockey fan, would you?

Do you ask because of my name? It's actually the name of an improvisational group I was involved with in college.

I'll set a date today instead of waiting until this weekend. DimSumCon--The Philly will be held Saturday, March 6. This gives plenty of notice and ends the "when" questions. Time to be determined after I have an idea of how many will be participating and then chat with the nice folks at Joy Tsin Lau--but probably 11 a.m. or noon.
lyz2814 - This is what I'm going on. I figured we'd specify the time closer to the date.
