RE: [midatlanticretro] MARCH events for 2009
MessageI think most people aren't able to leave their exhibits for lunch on Saturday, so by the time Saturday night arrives, everyone is anxious to get dinner.Last year we did bring in pizza on Sunday at lunchtime (sorry Jim - I just remembered that!) because the food truck guy from Saturday bailed out.-----Original Message-----

Old ? I hack till past midnite after a days work--but not everyday, I'm getting up there too :)
One possibility is to have the dinner moved up to Fri.nite and leave Sat.nite open for the evening entertainment--and food :)
But maybe not everyone is in town yet by then.
Another is to move the dinner to late nite after the Sat evening entertainment--with just some snacks to hold everyone's appetite till dinner, maybe at 10 or 11pm

Yes we are, but then the musicians could play remixes of chip
tunes. Here is an example: http://www.slayradio.org . This is an
internet radio station that just plays Commodore 64 remixes.
Also the theremin is a very old electronic instrument created in 1919!
