      We’ve taken some of those pretty sure busses before…..weekend stops are few and far between, and sometimes almost random – so we have to come up with a plan and then someone has to be the adult that gets us there at the right time, and deals with phantom busses. 


      There have always been great planners – movers in the past – but its work – and they may be smart enough to be silent at this time.

      Do we need a pre-drunk to plan for the big drunk?  Everyone would need to bring data and meetint at some location with wi-fi for additional surfing might not be bad?  The flow of the party is very important/difficult to plan/control.


      Lohr? Chris? Where are you? Don’t want to usurp anyone’s power – but I know how unpleasant it is when folks question your  choices – cant please all the santas all the time……….


       Above is from a team standpoint – from personnel santa – I’m all for new stuff –all for someone else doing all the hard part


      Ps – one thing I would like to encourage is folks getting metro passes for the day ahead of time

      dear yuletime drunks,

      We definitely need to do a weekend night, and
      Saturday's are better than Friday mostly since the day
      is more open to most people (doesn't matter to me, I
      work friggin everyday from August til Christmas, but I
      asked off for 12/09 two months in advance!).

      My only *new* input on the subject would be to skip
      Washington Street/Union Station and add South Grand.
      We could Metro the the Grand stop and then take the
      bus down to Mangia, Upstairs, CBGB's. I'm pretty sure
      there's an easy bus to get us down to Soulard after
      that too.

      If we really still need to go downtown, I'd even
      prefer the Landing. I have a friends who work at Joey
      B's and the Feisty Bulldog/XES Lounge and could make
      sure we don't get stuck with covers.
