How about we start by meeting up downstairs in Union South at the Prairie Fire bar/restaurant before 6? People can grab a bite to eat from any dining option there, and we can sit together there at Prairie Fire, as they've got nice open seating (and yes, it's okay to bring food from the other dining spots there to eat).
If you don't want to eat with us, how about joining us at 6:30 at Prairie Fire, and we'll head upstairs as a group to get in line for the Krauss lecture. That way we will have found each other already and can sit together. If people want to hang out afterwards for a beer and conversation or something, that would be great. I've got a Union membership so I can buy pitcher or two to share. Apart from it being Darwin's and Lincoln's birthday, it's also your's truly. So yes, hope to see some of you. Robert
