	Produce Row might be a little small. The Montage might be a good
choice, though they are lacking in beer selection.

	How about that weird looking gas-station-mexican place on MLK? I've
never actually eaten there, but it _looks_ friendly. At any rate it might
be worth it to call the R&R management and say 'wtf?'. Seems like we've made
the minimum every time I've been there (and not just because I'm a boozer).
Pissing off a legion of geeks doesn't seem like it would be in their best
interest, especially since many of us are regular customers to begin with.

	I would cast my vote for afterwards. It gives folks a chance to take
off whenever they feel like it, if they have other engagements. Hmm, you'd
also have an initial social head count too, that might make it easier to know
if we'll be able to make the fascist minimum.
