I'd like to make a suggestion for The Yacht Club. It's across the street from Elsie's, it's got a pool table, it's a totally dead dive bar. But it's awesome and you can have a ton of people in there with ease.

belsum, yacht club sounds good. Also, I have a soft spot in my heart for Grumpy's as well. And, a progressive TWoPcon sounds great, too. What about bowling at Elsie's, and heading over to the Yacht Club? How about the Stardust Lanes to the Chatterbox? Or the Nye's/Jitters idea? I went to Acadia the other night, and they have great coffee, beer and wine in a non-smoking enviroment, and everyone from businessmen to poets stops there. They rejiggered the theatre so it's back to homemade stadium seating again, but I have a friend of a friend who knows the owner, and we might be able to commandeer the actual coffeehouse side. What about a potluck picnic? Just let me (or someone else) know.
I'm up for anything, just as long as it's not in May.

I'm going to be on the horn with a couple of places this afternoon. Look here later this afternoon or this evening for potential dates. Then vote on them on this board or by sending me an email.
thanks for your patience.
ETA: Well, duh. I called a couple of places, but since it's Sunday aft., they'll have to get back to me. The dates will be up tomorrow. Most likely.

Here's two options I set up. Vote on one of them by emailing me via TWoP or posting on this thread. Please contact me by Friday at 5:00 p.m. so I can cancel one of the two appointments. Then we can get to the real work. Like decorations!

Kieran's has been the site of the last couple of TWoPcons, and if we get the back room, it should be super duper cool. The lady I talked to said that the back room is usually $100. But she wasn't the normal person to set up the room. That person will talk to me tomorrow. I'm going to hold it anyway - the person answering the phone may have been wrong about the $100 fee. Besides if enough of us go, it might only be $2, $2.50 a head.

Grumpy's will waive their room fee if at least 35 people show up. The back room opens out to a patio and the bar itself. Not trying to sway anyone, but it's one of my favorite places to snack and drink in the Cities, and with the patio it shouldn't be too bad for those sensitive to smoke. It's close to the Metrodome, but the date I chose is not a Twins home game night. So there should be decent parking.
Thanks for all your patience! Sorry about the delay.

I talked to the nice events planner at Kieran's. They will charge us $100 for the room, but they will also provide a bartender for cash bar. It was weird trying to explain why I wanted the room, though. Oh, well.
Rock the Vote!

On the other hand, the patio-adjacent-ness of Grumpy's sounds great for a summer get-together. So, I throw a hand up in each camp. Sure, the idea of one person/one vote sounds great in theory, but I say, give me ambivalence or give me . . . whatever else you've got, I'm not picky.

I should stitch that into a sampler. Heeeeeee.

Anyway. Polls close tomorrow. 5 p.m. Choose or lose! Fight the Power! No more ring around the collar!

I'll be bringing a check for the room rental over early next week. Those of you who expressed interest in decorating, etc., should get a'hold of me pronto, as I will be out of town the week of the con, returning that morning.
You can RSVP on the thread, or to my email through TWoP.
thanks for the support!
