Okay.

Last chance to change the venue for dinner. Locals, speak up and give suggestions. Otherwise I make arrangements with HRC tomorrow. :)

Would the honorable gentlewoman entertain a motion for T.S. McHugh's? It's close, and they can host a group. I ate (and drank!) there at the Pearl Jam release party for Backspacer, and enjoyed it. The food wasn't exceptional, but it was reasonably priced and tasty. Lots of hearty meals, plus Irish beer bread, and good cheer aplenty. What's not to like?

I think we were shooting for something new. We've done TS McHughs a few years in a row...
I'm good either way

Yes I've seen (and tasted) TS McHugh's by now, I'm also in favour of going somewhere new, HRC sounds good to me!

Looking forward to the HRC. During the five previous years I have managed to away from the Seattle Center just once other than the LEGO store event. Sean and I rode the monorail and had lunch at the food fair in the mall at the other end so it was not much. I'm looking forward to seeing a little tiny bit more of the city.

I GUARANTEE you'll get your fill of T S McHughes, since you're right. It is the closest. We shut them down every year and are there well to the 2:00am cut off for WA liquor service. I'm pretty sure the staff panics when whispers of BrickCon come round. :)

They have a tendency to run out of food and drink when we descend upon their fair establishment, since it's typically just US in the entire place. Pretty entertaining. Their ice cream and fudge is tasty.

Ask around when you get to the Con. ;)

Anyway; HRC it is. I've submitted the necessary info for our reservations. I'm making it for 20, to account for some stragglers we pick up. We can do more if necessary, but we want to keep it as close to that number as possible. We'll need to arrive there BEFORE 5pm so we can be seated in a timely manner. I should be there around 4:45.

Thanks!
