Looking at their gallery and at the list of people that have signed up
for the arrival dinner, I don't think it would be too small. I am also
of the opinion that in a pub venue, the musicians are probably used to a
loud audience. :-) Given all that, I've added it to the possibilities
listed on the wiki page for the arrival dinner. Doesn't mean we have to
go there, but it's yet another option.

In the meantime, it's now the Friday before the conference and there
doesn't seem to have been a decision made on what to do about the
dinner. Is anyone interested in going to the dinner going to be in
Asheville today or tomorrow who might want to go give the options a
once-over to see if any of them look better or worse than the others? If
so, maybe that would sway us one way or the other.

Anyway, I'm going to be arriving mid-afternoon on sunday, so I look
forward to seeing you all and getting something to eat. :-)

booty.  If for no other reason than: Bubbles talks to squirrels.
