Games Night at Coco's WEDNESDAY April 24, sorry NOT the 17th as discussed

Coco's would be happy to have us every Wednesday in their private room, and several gamers who attended the final Thursday Game Night at Carrows said they would be happy to move to Wednesday nights at Coco's. Walter is still trying to find us a Thursday location, but for now we will try Wednesday, April 24 at Coco's at 6:30 PM. For future plans after April 24, see our discussion group at http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/SJBoardGamesClub/message/976

    I thought we had the room reserved for 05/08, but it's not on the MeetUp calendar -- what's the story?

      Hi Karlo, sorry we missed you, we met on May 8 as planned, and we will be meeting on May 15 as well. As I said on the main announcement above, and also in the April 23 comment below, I will only be posting future announcements on the Yahoo! Group at http://games.groups.y...­ . Meetha was kind enough to make me an

    Thanks to all who attended! I understand that we have the room reserved for 05/08, two weeks hence (since next Wednesday was already booked) -- I don't know if we'll meet somewhere else next week or not; maybe Walter will have found a place for a Thursday meet that we can also try.

      I am unable to make it Wednesdays but if you find a place for Thursdays I can continue going. I already miss my game night.

    I thought it went well, and I personally had a good time, but I'm prejudiced! And even with only 9.5 people, Coco's was happy to book us again for 2 weeks later, May 8. The food was yummy and the service prompt and friendly. However, there was a definite failure to check back with us regularly to refill drinks and see whether anyone wanted to order anything more. They never even noticed when Bill came in around 10:00, never came to take his order. But Carrows was like that too, and I give them slack because after all, we're only paying for 1 hour's worth of service and yet getting to stay 4.5 hours.

    Remember, unlike Carrows, Coco's is reserving this room for us and possibly turning away bigger and better-paying groups. Let's be sure and play fair by paying our way, especially tonight which is a "trial run" for us. Let's be such a great group that they hope we sign up to come back every week!

    [Just to clarify:I haven't yet signed us up for any other days except 4/24...that will be up to the group to decide. If and when we do decide to continue at Coco's, and if you want me to continue to be the group's liaison with Coco's, I will be posting at http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/SJBoardGamesClub/message/976 . If someone else wants to take over (perhaps to get a different venue, perhaps to get us back to Thursday, perhaps just to get us an organizer who is willing to post events on Meetup) I will graciously bow out...I just jumped in here to try to get us some continuity in the short term.]

    This should be a fun relaxed evening. We have their private room so we don't have to worry about making noise or piling up games, and the room seats 40+ so we'll have room to spread out.

    They do separate checks and are good at handling people arriving and leaving at different times. They add an automatic 20% to each check which covers both the room and the tip.

    And as always for events cross-posted from http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/SJBoardGamesClub, there's no requirement to RSVP and no worry about "don't be a no-show" warnings. Just come and have fun!

    There's only one thing we do have to get strict with ourselves about: each one of us needs to order $10 worth of food and/or drink. If your purchase comes short of $10 that's no problem, just round up the tip so you're still leaving at least $12 total. Or add something to take home, or just buy a pound of their coffee.

    See you all tomorrow!

      I'm essentially at the common boundary point of Los Altos, Sunnyvale, and Cupertino, where CA-85 and I-280 cross.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
