    At any rate, I'm sorry I missed you...

    Well I can tell you it wasn't where the description said it would be. It was sort of under a tree kind of diagonally across the street from the 7th Street Market next to a parking lot. I have to admit I wasn't sure I was in the rt spot even w/the sign, since it wasn't where it was supposed to be.

    I was there until around 8pm and I didn't see a sign either. I guess we'll try again next season!

    OK, was I the only one who showed up last night? I was @ the sign a little before 5 p.m. I waited around until 5:25, then I went to look in the marketplace, checking the sign again @ 5:30 p.m. as I left. I stayed to grab some food and checked the sign from time to time, but saw no one standing there until I left @ 6:20ish :-(
