Date: This weekend, the 22nd or the 23nd.
Where: The Tactile Dome at the Exploratorium. If we hear from Aviatrix, who have the tickets. If the Tactile Dome doesn't work out two alternatives are Central Perk in El Cerrito and Zachary's (pizza) in Berkeley.
I believe that what the hey we are talking about, yes.

I agree; the Tactile Dome is seeming way too complicated to organize.
While the pizza sounds great, I think Zackary's isn't very logistics-friendly. I called them to ask about seating and stuff, and I learned that they tend to be totally
packed in the evening on weekends and still somewhat
packed even in the afternoon. And we need to be able to stake out a table without really knowing how many people are going to show up and then let them all filter in, and we'll probably want to hang out for a good while... I think a place with people standing in long lines would make things difficult.
I think it's time to put forward a specific plan and let people say yea or nay. I propose the following:Saturday, December 22nd
Central Perk Cafe (On San Pablo Ave. at Central Ave., near El Cerrito Plaza BART)
Feel free to bring games, toys, and miscellaneous fun stuff.
If y'all like this idea, I can see about reserving one of the best seating areas at Central Perk.
