If the weather is nice we will meet at the pool area of the Residence Inn where the out of town and some in-town folks are staying. If the weather turns bad, we will have a number of large suites and will just take the event indoors.
We will be grilling out and socializing, getting to know the new folks before SkeptiCamp kicks off on Saturday.
I am planning on providing basic food (Burgers, Veggie/Vegan burgers, Veggie Kebabs etc). If everyone could kick in $5/head, or bring along anything extra, it will be much cheaper than heading to a restaurant and easier to get to talk to more people.
Anyone wishing to enjoy a Margarita (or your drink of choice) by the pool, please BYOB. And for those who are interested a group of us are already staying at this hotel and we welcome more people to do the same. If you are interested in room sharing (prices would be from $25/person/night), please contact me via meetup.
