Re: [CA-West] 28 February Meeting -- Program Schedule
I've been to several Bay Area Games Day events at that venue. Those are held on Saturdays and run well past the Library closing time of 6pm. I do not know how arrangements were made, but the rest rooms have always been kept open after hours for those events. If you think you may run past 6pm you should ask about that. (I remember attending a CA-West meeting there and leaving early because the rest room was locked up.) Also, the Friends of the Library have raised many $$$ at Games Days through the honor system snack cart in the lobby. There is a nice selection of snacks, sodas, juices, coffee and teas. Bring small bills and change and you won't have to make a snack run.

Yes, thank you for the reminder. We have had mixed results on that -- sometimes they've left the restrooms open for us, sometimes not. I'll try to remember to ask about that when we get the room opened for us.

Indeed. Even if you bring lunch with you, throwing cash at the Friends via the snack cart for a late afternoon caffeine or sugar fix is a good thing to do!
Pope Goestheveezl was the shortest reigning pope in the history of the
Church, reigning for two hours and six minutes on 1 April 1866. The
white smoke had hardly faded into the blue of the Vatican skies before
it dawned on the assembled multitudes in St. Peter's Square that his
name had hilarious possibilities. The crowds fell about, helpless with
Half a pound of tuppenny rice
Half a pound of treacle
That's the way the chimney smokes
The square was finally cleared by armed carabineri with tears of
laughter streaming down their faces. The event set a record for
hilarious civic functions, smashing the previous record set when Baron
Hans Neizant Bompzidaize was elected Landburgher of Koln in 1653.
