FC Chinese 2013! [Updated]

With FC approaching again, I'd like to announce the 7th annual Saturday Night Chinese meetup.

We'll be heading to Wing's Chinese Restaurant again, located in San Jose's Japantown (www.wingsofsanjose.com). The place has been open since 1925 (under the same family ownership for the last 80+ years), so they're obviously doing something right.  Since this will be our seventh year there, they'll definitely remember us.  XD

This is planned for Saturday evening from 8:00 to 10:00.  As usual, we're overlapping with the Masquerade.  You can view the FC2013 schedule here:  http://fc2013.sched.org/

We'll meet up at the Marriott end of the Convention Center, by the stairs on the first floor, at 8:00pm.  Then we'll take the light rail (8:13pm at the latest) up to Japantown.  Details & map here: bit.ly/Y0Qp8b  The light rail tickets cost $2.00, but they're good for 2 hours, so you can re-use your ticket for the return trip.  (Also, don't put a $20 bill into the ticket machine, as you'll get $18 in COINS back)

And now, the obligatory bulleted list:
" - Cost-wise, we're looking at about $12 per person (plus light rail tickets).  No, I'm not paying for everybody. :-p

- Hit the ATM before we meet up so you have some cash handy (you'll need it for the light rail anyway).  This way we can avoid the confusion of giving the waitress a dozen different credit/debit cards.

- To keep things simple, and to keep costs down, we'll be ordering family-style.  Individual dinner platters tend to get lost in the shuffle and cost more per person.

- Each family-style item is enough for about 2 people, so let's not go overboard at first.  We've made that mistake before, and ended up carting a ton of leftovers back to the hotel!  We can always order more if we need to.

- Because we're a fairly large group (we average around a dozen), I like to call the restaurant 30 minutes ahead so they can prepare for us. So, it'll help if everyone that's going could give me a TXT or IM by 7:30pm so I can give them a headcount.

That about does it for now.  Take care!
