    As I understand the event will end 9PM on September 10th, 2011. Those who are energetic like me and could only take a flight the next morning, would most likely wanna hang around longer........

    I decided to create a new thread to gauge any interest from others wanting to stay back and hang out later into the evening.

    Let me know whether you be interested to attend or contemplate on attending (standby) and I will start tabulating a list!

    I'm in. Leaving on a 6:25 am flight Sunday, have no hotel reservation, and don't feel like getting one.

    Positioning flights:
    9/5 UA3487 ORD-LGA 8:00-11:06 (will skip Andaz and go directly to JFK)
    9/11 AA1465 DEN-ORD 6:25-9:50

    Open to post-DO activities in DEN; not sure about ORD, as I might go see family instead.

    Up for a post-MegaDO DO (err, that didn't sound too nice! :p). Planning on switching over to the Sheraton, but if things are happening in the City center, I am up for it.

    Post DO hangout sounds awesome! Will depend how tired I am! At the very least I will be in for a group van/shuttle/cab ride to th Hyatt Place @ the airport. Early morning flight and then a full day of "toddler playtime" on Sunday makes me a "maybe" for post DO festivitites. :)

    My flight back to LAX departs at 3:07PM on Saturday. I'm planning to attend whatever DO activities I can squeeze in before having to leave for DEN.

    Once we know the final count of people leaving early Sat am and going to the DEN airport or Hyatt Place, we can figure out transportation. From what I understand we can do Taxi, car service/limo, shuttle bus or public transportation.
    If anybody local to DEN or knows DEN well can make recommendations, that would be great :)

    i am sure we will have 2 groups, one would head to the airport Hyatt while another group will stay at downtown Hyatt.

    since we are staying at the downtown Grand Hyatt, why not stay there for the extra night?

    The last thing u want is 9+pm, after dinner and a few drinks, having to head to the airport hotel to check in again with luggages and stuff and by then you will be too tired and forget we have a Post-Do Party in town!

    g_h_t, canucklehead=neuron, but I get confused too. Sometimes I don't know if I am coming or going. For the post-Do in DEN, I am coming! :D

    For me two reasons..... 1. Cost. Since this event, while worth it, is already up to a hefty total I welcome a hotel rate that is 1/2 the price of the Downtown Hyatt. 2. I have a very early flight, and it will help save time in the morning by already being close to the airport.

    Of course there are obvious benefits to just staying put for two nights though!

    Me too. I have a noon flight, after all the travel would rather sleep in, have breakfast and head to the airport. From downtown I would have to leave by 9am. Not sure if I will be flying out on HP or UA yet. HP is changeable, which is a plus. I anyone wants to head out to den after the post do party I am into splitting costs.

    Haven't yet set up my leg back to NYC on Sunday, but I'll be staying a 2nd night at the Grand Hyatt. Don't want to take a red-eye, so will likely be last possible afternoon flight.

    UPDATE
    Just set my return flight as CO406 departing 16:32. Have already received 1 PM about sharing a cab to DEN in time, though that person is leaving later than me.

    am i reading this correct?

    Group 1. Hyatt near Denver Airport
    Group 2. Grand Hyatt Downtown

    Group 1. will also party but share a cab/bus to the hotel? Google Satellite map shows nothing around the hotel. Just open land.

    Folks, i booked Hyatt Place @ Denver Airport as well....... the 48 hour sale is $55 ($65 all inclusive). This is almost $90 cheaper than Grand Hyatt Downtown

    We can still hang out downtown or another option is to come to the Hyatt Place and we'll do an event there..... If we do the latter, I will find some time to stock up food (munchies), drinks etc etc......
