[yapc] PerlMonks of the world unite... for lunch, Wednesday

FWIW, I would like to see the "conversations with radios" talk.
Though, if someone is taping it / presentation slides made available, I
could easily be convinced to go to lunch instead...

I've had one private call for "the lightning talks are usually the best
part of YAPC".  I certainly don't mind going to lunch earlier rather
than later.  If y'all can come to agreement on this by, say, 10am (ie,
how long will it take to ride the train, get lunch, and get back and
how early would it make sense to leave to have the chance to see more
of the lightning talks?) then I think we can change the plans.

Personally, I've been up way too late having fun so I will miss the
first round(s) of negotiating such a schedule change.

My original idea was to leave before noon in order to beat any "lunch
rush" but the schedule has talks until 12:05 and skipping the last
round of talks only gets us heading out at 11:45 which likely doesn't
get us at the restaurant soon enough to really beat any "rush" and
likely also doesn't get us back before the lightning talks start so I
revised my plan to what I sent out.

I'd be fine with skipping the last two rounds of talks and leaving
around 11 if that works for a majority.

So speak up and negotiate a consensus before it gets too late.

	I've updated the wiki
with most of the details about our lunch arrangements.  To save y'all a
click, here is what I wrote:
	We'll be having lunch at a nice place in China Town that serves
Asian food (but whose name I don't have handy at the moment). 
	Let's meet in front of the Crown Room (the "locked room" behind
the registration table, SE part of the Herman Union Building) at 12:05.
We'll leave at 12:10 to walk to the Red Line (if you don't have a
transit pass already, then you'll have to walk a couple of extra blocks
to the far side of the station). And bringing cash will make it easier
to settle the bill (for lunch and for buying Larry). Thanks. 
	Note that this means that we will miss the first part of the
Lightning talks. (Strong arguments to go earlier and thus missing a
different set of talks can be entertained but only if made by quite
early Wednesday).
