      Yes, it was a bit awkward, and dare I say a little tacky? Dan took it all in stride though. I guess Dick's celebrity status may have gone to his head a wee bit. :-) still love him though!

      To me, somewhat... only because Dan Barker and (I think) the Case CFI organizer had no idea who he was, nor did he directly introduce himself. That's why I felt compelled to point out that he's pretty much NE Ohio's all-time best-known personality. And was it proper of DG to get up and "take the helm" for 10 minutes or so? Probably not- however, having such a well-admired local person (who happens to be a non-theist) with us at this event... Priceless! :)

    Awesome! Thank you Case CFI for getting this together. Dan was excellent (when is he not?), and we had a special treat with a visit by a well-known Northeast Ohioan :) Nice crowd, intimate setting. It was great to meet Janelle, Adrian, & others!

    We are planning to be at Falafel Cafe between 6-6:15pm for a bite, if anyone would like to join us. It may be me, it may be Mark, it may be both of us - who knows? :) It's about a six-minute walk to Thwing.

    I can't make it as we are doing Pumpkin Carving at the Barking Spider at 6 - but you're all welcome to join us there after. The Spider is a short walk from Thwing on the Case Campus. https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=210039966437709135344.000462edb2c9a7525d586&msa=0 For Thwing your best parking bet is the garage at Severance Hall, you enter on East Blvd, just north of Euclid avenue. If you exit via the stairwell/elevator on the East side of the garage it takes you into a liitle kiosk right outside of Thwing.

    Nighttown is just up the hill. I would be up for a post meet meet and am flexible. East side or west side don't make no never mind!

    I would be interested in hanging after the meetup, grab a drink or a bit or both and discuss Mr. Barker's presentation. I would suggest Great Lakes Brewing just because I know it. If anyone else has any closer or other suggestions for a place, I'm open to that as welll.

    Notice to those coming from the west side- President Obama will be appearing at Burke Lakefront Airport at approximately the same time as this meetup. I imagine that coming in from I-90 or 77 or 71 will be ok, but the Shoreway may be blocked off west of Dead Man's curve. It wouldn't be a bad idea to check the PD or online that day, to see where the roads may be blocked.

    Don, we hope you can make it! Unfortunately, we can't take credit for getting Dan here. This is being put on by Case Center for Inquiry. Their link is provided in the event description if you want to find out more :-)

    Suzy, there is a paid (metered) lot at Falafel Cafe, but it's a bit of a walk. There is underground parking near the Thwing Center - this map shows it (P-29). I don't know what the cost is to park here. It looks like the entrance is off of East Blvd: http://www.case.edu/visit/pdf/CWRU.Map.8.2012.pdf

    Do you have any info regarding the parking? Thanks!
