Since most of these meet ups are first times meeting other folks I would suggest the organizers:
- Pick a time and place close to the convention center as most people are staying downtown.
- Bring reading material or a buddy so the person does not bet bored.
- Say how long you will be there. “I will be there from X pm to Y pm and everyone is welcome to join.”
- Give a “what to look for sign” like “look for he extraordinarily handsome guy in the bright orange shirt.”

Especially if people have never met, it is very difficult to find a place that everyone will like so it better to just pick something and go with it.  The most important aspect of the meet ups is not the food or the ambiance, it’s meeting your fellow nerd-kin!

Have fun everyone!

RE sunday
I think Transmu has it sorted, she's on vaka right now
but i think i can safely say, she'll post when she can/as soon as she gets back <grin>

conkwe:
I'd be up for the swag swap on Sunday. This is a great idea. I always end up wanting some swag that I didn't know about or wasn't able to get after the con has ended.

Bert Su:
I'd be willing to buy my own swag and trade it for SDCC freebies.

angi:
I don't want to be responsible/head-up the PN meeting because there is no way I am going to be there as early as everyone wants to be there.  So it would be kind of unfair to set it up and not show up.  Hopefully someone else can fill in.
