Who's coming? meet Jake and Grandmere Mimi!

Hi Everyone,
Are you coming? Please let us know in the comments!

We just learned that Grandmere Mimi will attend. And of course, Jake/Fr Terry will be making an appearance!

I will have a folder or paper with "Friends of Jake" on it. Look for it in the bar at the Hilton before the Integrity Eucharist, after the Eucharist so we can meet and walk over together, or at Bar Louie. Better yet, bring one too! Most of us are not known to one another, so please keep your eyes peeled for "Friends of Jake" signage.

If you are recognizable (one of our blogosphere's stars), please keep your eyes open for hesitant shy people who might be trying to connect!

Reunion: Bar Louie (Updated)

Near the convention center is a mall (Anaheim Garden Walk) with a bunch of restaurants and bars. Jake suggests one called "Bar Louie".

Also, that night is a home game at Angel's Stadium, hopefully that will take out some of the evening bar traffic!

Bar Louie Anaheim
321 W Katella Ave # 212
Anaheim, CA 92802

Those who arrive early before the service (it's at 6.30 in the ballroom of the HIlton) may want to meet before hand in the bar in the atrium of the Hilton hotel. A lot of you know each other but some of us are unknonws. So tell the hostess you are a Friend of Jake's, so she can direct us to each other.

On this map, the HIlton is (A), Bar Louie is (B). Click for larger view.

We'll work it around the Integrity service. When do y'all get out of the afternoon meetings? Can we have a quick reunion before the service and then something more relaxed afterwards? we also need someone to figure out WHERE we will meeti afterwards.

Narrowing it down

Lots of suggestions in the thread below (remember, those of you who answered invitations also have posting privileges!)
Jake has narrowed it to three possibilities that work for him. It seems to me that Jake is THE essential attendee.

1) Before/After the integrity service on Friday the 10th (where?). The service is at 6.30, Bishop Gene presiding and Bishop Barbara preaching.
Caveat: Jake is only free from 6-7.30 because of hearings (Jake, please edit if necessary!) So he could be there early, and have to leave, coming back at 9.

2) the Second Tuesday evening

3) The second Wednesday evening

I will add the additional possibility of the weekend; yes I know I can't be there, but y'all can still get together!

I can do Friday OR the weeknights the second week, not both (we are flying out of town to see family that weekend; won't make reservations till we decide which end of the weekend we are doing this!)
