Drinks, dining and discussions
I'll be in town from the evening of July 28th through the afternoon of the 30th, for a day and a half meeting near Sea World. Tiger! Tiger! sounds like a nice place to hang out, drink and/or eat, if the fancy strikes you for any of those three. This could also give us time to transition to someplace else for pub trivia, if we're motivated. [more inside]
