    I would be in. I'm finding same-day turnarounds from LAX appear to be quite expensive though...is there some sort of fare restriction going to IAH?

    I'm in. For once, I'll actually be flying into one of these. UA is $100 and I can do it same day with no need for a hotel. :D

    Austin Beer Festival that day so it's a no-go. Bit high of a price point for lunch.

    None are currently planned, but if you'd like to set something up...

    Only thing I see going on in town that day is the Monster Energy AMA SuperCross. Somehow I doubt this venue is that interested in that.

    If you time it correctly you can make it to both events.

    Just a reminder to everyone else to pay soon for this event!

    Fyi, all attendees are going to get a set, yet to be determined, number of raffle tickets. You'll receive extra tickets for every additional $10 donated to charity. Some of the legacy CO gifts we're raffling off have never been sold in stores!

    So please remember to pay and attend this fabulous event of great food and company (and perhaps some special guests [​IMG]).
