    Default Florida Meet Up / Las Vegas Meet Up

    Hi all,

    I'm planning on being in Florida on 9th Jan 2016. I'm there for a few days on business but as before, the evening of my arrival is the only free time I have. Anybody available for a few beers and SK collecting chat?

    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Too bad you aren't there a bit later in January. You might have combined business with pleasure and a King signing...

    Nothing has been announced, but some hope was given on the SK message board.
    King lives in Florida during the winter. King will be in Bradenton, FL for a John Grisham event on January 19th, 2016. It's extremely unlikely King will sign books at the Grishom event. That doesn't mean a stalker couldn't go to the event or nearby places to hope and snag King for a signature.

    sIMON. WILL try to make a run up thatway this time.
    We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring
    will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.

    Yay! thanks guys. It will be probably be a meetup time of around 8:00pm? I land at 5:30 so will be at the hotel for 6:30 - 7:00pm.

    We could meet at the hotel or I could get a taxi over to Downtown Disney and meet in one of the bars there?

    Downtown Disney is not really close to the Shingle Creek. International drive is very close to it and there are plenty of bars and places to carouse

    Shingle Creek isn't the hotel from last year. That was World Center which is closer to Downtown Disney

    Yes sorry, my mistake. Last year my company held their main conference at Shingle Creek, but as it was filled with customers and VIP guests, employees stayed at World Center and got bused in. This time we get to stay in Shingle Creek.

    Ale House on Kirkman is a pretty decent joint with cheap drinks, good food, sports bar atmosphere. There are plenty of other places too. Tilted Kilt has hot waitresses similar to Hooters.
    There are a load of places right there on I drive.

    Drinking in the Rosen Bar is prolly pretty expensive. Also paying for parking by meeting at the hotel is an issue. I'd suggest we start at some place on I drive like Alehouse and if everyone is not feeling it we can check out a new joint.

    I don't really like a sports bar or 'hooters' type restaurant.

    I'd like good food and good beer where we can talk and relax.

    There is a place at Pointe Orlando called The Pub. It's a British theme restaurant. They have a decent "Pub" menu and plenty of beer choices.

    I just PM'd Brian on this place - it's pretty good (I visited it last time I was in Florida)

    I do find it funny that I fly all the way to the US and end up in a british themed pub, but hey what the hell
