Balticon, and related matters

So, Balticon starts in a little over two weeks. Despite the recent tsuris of truck repairs, I still plan on making it there, because among other things, I promised a bunch of folks that I'd be there. I do know this - I'm not going to be staying at the Hunt Valley. The Ramada around the corner has king rooms for ~$51 a night, and I don't mind commuting a mile or so to the convention venue. (I may have to commute from Alexandria depending on how the cash flows or doesn't.) Anyway, we should talk about when and where we want to get together; whether or not we want to do a Dead Dog Party on Monday, and if so, where; also, whether people want to carpool or...something I've forgotten but is no doubt important. Giev comments with information!

Without looking at last year's schedule, I'm pretty sure Balticon actually gets underway around noon on Friday, which is about the earliest I can be up there. (I have a doctor's appointment on Friday morning.) So...meet in the bar ~1800 and head out for dinner?

You may also be interested to know that the light rail stops less than a mile from the Hunt Valley. I don't know how convenient that is for you.

I like both. :)

Yeah, I can relate to that; sometimes when I look at the way Metro is laid out, I wonder who the hell they actually built it for, because unless you're downtown or in Arlington, it's not really convenient to anywhere.

The Minneapolis light rail system is like that too - get the ooties to the airport, downtown, or the Sprawl, and any benefit to those residents actually paying for it is incidental.

Contact info: this I then do.
