Extravaganza 2010 - Who's goin? and stuff!!!

Hey Guys, I am getting things together to go to this years event..

It would be my first Extravaganza, and I'm looking forward to it...

So I thought I would make a thread here, where we can all discuss the up-coming event from a Atendees point of view..

I'll start with three topics of discussion, and you can add as needed:

1) So, who's going?

2) Does anyone want to share a room with a total stranger?

3) Does anyone know of any happening Parties at the event?

4) Any good places to grab food nearby?

lets see where this goes for now, and I'll add a few more questions during the week..

Thanks for your time and input....

Right now it looks like I'm going to miss this one. I took my kindergartner out of school for the September event. Bringing her down again would probably draw the ire of school. I suppose my wife could stay home with the kids while I'm down there, but that'd probably cost me a ton.

Where to eat.

The event is in the Hyatt Regency; food in there is good but not cheap. Attached to the hotel is a food court with food from Dairy Queen to pizza to a great little Irish Pub (don't remember the name). Just down the street is a neat little micro brewery called Max Lagers. Good food, reasonably priced and obviously good beers. There's many chain (Hard Rock) and private eating places within walking distance of the hotel. For something different take a walk down to the Underground. Or you can walk to the Aquarium (I think it's the largest) or to Coca Cola USA.

Now hold off on claiming all that coffee for yourself. I'm going, too! Just have been busy at the field and exhausted after the holidays (running the field plus all the mom stuff that the season brings - shopping, cooking, wrapping, shipping, decorating, organizing) to post. I came back from last year's event so energized and excited about doing what I do that I wouldn't miss this one for the world. Call it my annual motivational fix, if you please.

I stopped by the happy hour that Nation did last year but since it was in a restaurant with other patrons, I didn't know who was who and only stayed a few minutes. I would love it if we can organize a little something among ourselves this year. Perhaps meeting for dinner one night at the micro brewery Richard mentioned? Just a thought...

I will be attending as well. This is my 1st event, so I'm pumped. I plan on taking a few classes, but I'm waiting to see the schedule first. Not sure of any parties, but I'm sure there will be some going on. Hope to see you guys down there!

MOM - Maybe as the event gets closer we can do that, and set-up a casual Meet-N-Greet one night, and a rousing roundtable another night...

If I don't hear of any parties I might have to throw one myself in the hotel Room.... although My room is not really that big for a party...

we'll see.....

And MOM isn't it rough to be cursed with being busy at the fields......

Ha. The busy at the field part I'll take any day. It's all the other stuff that Moms have to do during the holidays is the rough part. Wish I could "rent a wife/mom".... Hey, another business idea!!

we have that business out here in california.... its called a PA...

they get paid less than minimum wage, under the table , no re-imbursment for gas in thier cars, and they work on average 18 hours/day....

the only trick is you have to smooze them into thinking that you will someday help them make a movie... but thankfully they'll get pissed and quite long before you have to fill your end of the bargin...

Looking forward to it.
