I've unilaterally decided the 2014 location
As I drove my kids home from my parents' house today, I planned a Seattle Blathering in my head.
Thursday night Organizer Dinner at Delancey.
We will book a whole floor for attendees at the downtown Hyatt. You can light rail yourself over there from the airport.
Thursday night drinks at... oh gosh. I kind of dig the W hotel lobby. Or ANYWHERE?
Friday brunch is dim sum at Jade Garden. OR O'Asian, but O'Asian's in a boring downtown office building and Jade Garden is in the International District AND you can go to Uwajimaya afterwards and that just sounds like more fun.
Friday night party at this Lower Queen Anne condo. Afterwards I will buy it and live there myself.
Saturday morning 2.8 mile run around Green Lake. (Not me, I will be in bed.)
Saturday breakfast at Green Lake Bar and Grill. We can take over the restaurant.
Afternoon excursions to the market, Capitol Hill, Seattle Center, downtown shopping, the waterfront, Shalini's house,
Saturday night dinner at Matt's In The Market. Again, I want the entire restaurant.
Sunday breakfast at the condo - I volunteer to put in an order at Macrina Bakery and deliver it myself.
