I don't believe we've managed to make this work on a large scale previously, so I'd like to start early.
I believe we have folks ranging from Santa Barbara down to south San Diego in the Southern California region, and I'd like to see how many we can get together somewhere to game, eat, drink, and be silly.
What I'd like to find out is:
1. Who'd be interested
2. Where you are
3. Any ideas you might have on where to hold the event
For me (South Orange County here), the obvious choices are Dave & Busters at the Irvine Spectrum and Dave & Busters at the Block in Orange. Other than that, I'm not quite sure as I definitely can't host and there's no suitable facility in my complex to rent out for hosting purposes either.
