    I'll be there.

    Thanks to one of the most awesome members on this site!

    EXPLORER will have a good idea where to meet.
    I hope that it is helpful. I know that it was back when I did a similar thing. Is Explorer going to the Sarasota event?

    Now I just need people to say "preshow (and give a time)" or "postshow"..... or Both.

    Both.
    Pre-show would be at noon or 1pm at the latest so people could eat and drink and still have time to go to their room, or go wait in line 4 hours. I don't do lines so well, so I can't see myself getting in line until ~90 minutes before the event.

    After the show, whoever wants to meet can do so also.

    I will be traveling from TX to a friends house in Chicago. He'll be joining me, he has read maybe 10-20 king books (mostly borrowed from me). I will be at his mercy since I don't plan on renting a car, but I will try to talk him into going to any meetup we have before the talk.

    An alternate location would be http://www.safe-house.com/. It is very close to the theater (walking distance). In fact my friend and I went there before going to see "The ghost brothers of Darkland county" at the pabst theater several years ago. It's a very interesting place. If you don't know the password they will make you do silly things to "prove" you are not an enemy spy. (you will be on camera for other customers to watch).

    Check the map out, but be aware one place nearby appears to be a bar only, and another place doesn't open until 5PM.

    Since seating is first come, first served at the King event, perhaps lunch/cocktails before, and cocktails afterward would be the way to go.

    https://www.google.com/maps/search/B...9!2d27.3376639
    I always enjoy Duvals & have shared that place with several other members. I go there for lunch often when in Sarasota.

    We have met at Classico (corner of Main & Palm) before and/or after other Sarasota events. It would accommodate a larger group.

    I am not familiar with Tavern on Main however can try and check out this week.
    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.

    No, my friend prefered Milwaukee since he lives in Wilmette IL, which is north of Chicago, so trafic is better, plus Saturday night was better. After hearing about the venue for Naperville, glad we made that choice.

    I'm going to be coming down from Seattle (and then afterward trying to get home before 2am), so I'll be lucky if I get to the venue in time for the show, so chances of my making a meetup are, I'm afraid, not particularly good.

    NY people, should we poll to see what people want to do in terms of pre- or post-event gathering/dinner/food?

    Consider it got!

    BEFORE: Doors open at 6:15, but I'm assuming most of us would want to get there at least by 5:30-6:00 for a better chance at a good seat. Meaning a meet-up/gathering/dinner would be a couple hours before. Maybe 3:00-3:30 (or even earlier, depending on what everyone's feeling). The only restaurant I know nearby is Junior's (which is 6 minutes away from the church), though I'm sure there are others.

    AFTER: The "show" is at 7pm, so I'm guessing we won't get out until 8:30ish, depending on how long the conversation and book distribution goes. It might be late for a week night (especially for those traveling), but on the pro side, we wouldn't have to worry about time constraints.

    I guess the real question is whether NY attendees want to eat or not (and how long you can hold off).

    Let the voting begin!

    I'm not sure as I don't know what we're doing that day yet so please don't plan around me. Once you guys decide on a time and place(either before or after the event) I'll see what I can do as I would love to meet everyone!

    I'd only possibly be available for a before meet up in Boston. Traveling with the family so we will be touring around Boston that day - along newbury street (gotta keep the wife happy). And afterwards we will be driving straight to Vermont for a family wedding that weekend. So don't count on me - but I can probably swing by if people meeting before hand

    Consider it got!

    BEFORE: Doors open at 6:15, but I'm assuming most of us would want to get there at least by 5:30-6:00 for a better chance at a good seat. Meaning a meet-up/gathering/dinner would be a couple hours before. Maybe 3:00-3:30 (or even earlier, depending on what everyone's feeling). The only restaurant I know nearby is Junior's (which is 6 minutes away from the church), though I'm sure there are others.

    AFTER: The "show" is at 7pm, so I'm guessing we won't get out until 8:30ish, depending on how long the conversation and book distribution goes. It might be late for a week night (especially for those traveling), but on the pro side, we wouldn't have to worry about time constraints.

    I guess the real question is whether NY attendees want to eat or not (and how long you can hold off).

    Let the voting begin!
    I think eating around 4 would be better or after the event. Not sure if Jacob is coming or not but I won't be able to leave until school around 2 is out if he decides to come. I might be able to get him out a bit early??
