Just to ping people. We're still on for 8PM at Flames in downtown San
Jose tomorrow night? I think they'll be OK if we just show up without
a reservation. However, it'd be super-helpful if we could get a
headcount of people who plan to make it so the first people to arrive
know how big a table to request.

I plan to be there.

I am categorically opposed to becoming a 501(c)(3). I'd like to become
a 501(c)(7)(?) social club. We're a social club, lets not dress it up
as a charity for someone other than ourselves. (Also, by not dressing
it up, we have a lot more latitude to do whatever the hell we want.) A
social club is by, for and about us.

Oh, that's awesome! How about you post your ideas /to the list/
instead of just sending them to me! I have conveniently cc'd the list
in my reply.
