I like the idea (but then I would as it's probably 30 minutes
closer to me than the current meeting place :-).

Parking shouldn't be a problem there in the evening. There's a fair amount
of space in the circle in front of the building, and another lot on the
back side that I think is available for things like this.
Access from downtown, I-5, and I-90 is quite good. It's probably five
minutes from the International District (House of Hong is one of my
favorites on Jackson practically under I-5).
