SF Bay area drinks/dinner with MikeC - June 28

Post by CA_Steve » Wed Jun 13, 2012 6:29 am

Mike is going to be in our area at the end of June. Here's an opportunity to put faces to names and socialize with other SPCRians (SPCRites? SPCRolians? SPCRers?). The restaurant is tbd, but will either be in Fremont or Milpitas along the 880. We'll meet in the bar @ 6pm for drinks. Dinner will be at 7pm for those that would like to join. It's a no-host bar and dinner (aka - you pays yer own way). I'll finalize the location sometime next week and it'll only be sent to people that RSVP.

If you'd like to join us, please RSVP below and include whether it's for drinks or dinner or both.

This will obviously be one of the burning issues to resolve at this historic gathering! :lol:

Neil, you shoulda driven over. I gave you two weeks notice :D

Review: The restaurant needed some of the acoustic dampening material from Mike's test chamber. The beer was cold, the salsa was tasty, the conversation enjoyable. Thanks all!
