I'm restarting this thread. I'm going to be down in Orlando the last week in July, and in Tampa starting August 15, attending USF. swtrgrl, I don't want a huge party or anything, but it would be nice if maybe four of us went out to dinner or something.

Holy freakin' cow! Yay!!!! Totally, yes.

Zuclinator from the West Wing thread is maybe a go. There might be someone else, too. I'll have to rack my feeble brain to remember who it is.

Are you starting undergrad? Grad? Medical? KOOL!!! Go Bulls.

Undergrad, going into journalism. But yeah, I'd totally need a ride because I don't drive.

Difficult Child, it's not intimate. I don't know what the response will be like but so far there's only about 5-6 people. That's manageable. You're more than welcome to meet up with us. It's not a private club. The Customand I just know each other from soap boards.

Yeah, that's what sealed the deal about my wanting to do a TWoPCon...that I "know" a poster from the places I post.

Now, school starts on August 23...we could probably do something the weekend before or the weekend after. Or August 27. I have Fridays off, but I don't know what I have to do for school yet.

Ooh, there was an Outback off Fowler. We could meet there for dinner sometime. I like the food, plus it's close to the campus.

TheCustomofLife, Outback is off of Fowler but actually on 56th. Carabba's is on Fowler.

I'm up for either. Both are two of my favorites.

Zuc, I'll keep you posted.

I believe the Saturday after first week of classes is a no-go. We have to attend an Honors College lecture. Before school starts on the 23rd would be fine, though. I'll be going down on the 13th.

I'll be in town starting August 14. Anything before August 17 is a no-go because I have to set up my dorm and go shopping for clothes and such.

There isn't really any planning to do. Tell us when you're available and we'll see if we can meet up. Hopefully it can happen. Frankly, there have been really only two responses (myself and Zuclinator) so it's not like a big plan-fest.

Definitely email us (thru the profiles) and hopefully we can meet up. It should be fun! Can't wait to meet you.

First off, I hope everyone's all right, what with those four hurricanes and all. Can you believe California, trying to grab the headlines like that, with that earthquake? I mean, it was only a 6.0. Psh.

Anyway, I'm going to be in Orlando next weekend for a convention of my engineering honor society, and I was wondering if anyone could give me any tips about the Orlando bar scene in general, and gay clubs/bars in particular. We'll be staying at the Radisson Plaza Hotel (60 South Ivanhoe Boulevard), but we probably won't be averse to taxiing, what with the engineering incomes and all.

I'll try to come back and check the thread, but if possible I'd really prefer it if you could e-mail me through my profile. Thanks!
