No Op. - Social action in SFO 5/6 February pre-NANOG mtgs.
- From: Lauren F. Nowlin

Apologies to Randy for the non-operational content here... but of course we
hope he joins us out on the Santa Cruz Boardwalk Sunday for bumper cars...
should be smashing (gee I sound like Bill Norton!) entertainment.
Saturday (5-Feb) afternoon: Paintball - e-mail Bill Norton
<email@example.com> for details
Saturday evening: Boating for an hour tour of the Bay (bring a jacket) -
$10 per person. Meet at the entrance to Pier 39 (yeah, touristy but
everyone can get directions to Pier 39) at 5:15 p.m. We want to make sure
sunset is out on the water. Folks car-pooling from the Doubletree Hotel
San Jose, 2050 Gateway Place, San Jose, CA 95110 should gather around 3:45
/ 4 p.m. in the hotel lobby. It is about 50 miles between SJC & SFO and
parking in SFO can be tough on the weekends. If you have a car reservation
ask for a large vehicle and we'll load-up & caravan to the city.
Saturday night (around 7:30 / 8 p.m.): Dinner in San Francisco at
Fisherman's Grotto #9 down in the heart of the wharf. Chowder, sourdough &
geeking.. I'm going to make a reservation for a party of 20 under the
name NANOG. After a lengthy dinner & stroll of the Pier, we should do
dessert at Ghiradelli Square (ice-cream sundaes to drool over) around 10
p.m. Clubbing/dancing - Locations TBD (Christian mentioned some 'Gold'
club?)... lots of variety in SFO.
Sunday: Santa Cruz on the Boardwalk is where we plan to recover the next
http://www.beachboardwalk.com will display a few of the
amusements. Rollercoasters run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in February. Bumper
cars, salt-water taffy, sand & the usual beachfront stores are all
there. This is the boardwalk from the movie _The Lost Boys_ . The ancient
arcade has Tron, Ms. Pacman, Centipede, a shooting gallery and of course
the latest video games. Woody has the name of a great sushi spot in Santa
Cruz (Cathy W. probably does too...) We are going to meet in the hotel
lobby at 10:30 and sort out the carpool. Plan to return to the hotel
~3:30. Andrew Khoo insists sushi should be the dinner plan on Sunday night
<g> He never gets enough...
Anyway, RSVP for the dinner on Saturday night so that I'll have a better
guesstimate of 20 or 30 for dinner at the Fisherman's Grotto. Please don't
rsvp to the list...
