ANOTHER, ANOTHER UPDATE
OK, a last minute update for those paying attention. @ezeewrap66’s wife Sharon gave Lions Pub a call, and they said as long as 20 of us show up at 5:30, we can take over the upper section.
So, I say lets try that, and if it doesn’t work, we can just walk across the street to the convention center and do the 6 p.m. meetup thing instead.
For people who want to pick up their badges first, feel free to do that, then come to Lions, or come to Lions to help us secure the location, then quickly pop over (the convention center is pretty much just across the street) to get your badge then come back.
For people who can’t make 5:30, feel fee to show up later. Last year I showed up two hours later, and it was still going strong, but if you’re worried you’ll be late, I’ll keep an eye on here, or you can hit me up on the SUSD Discord.
People Confirmed for 5:30 p.m. at Lions Pub (21): Me, Swaguar, Sharon, ezeewrap66, ctblerd, Zeszes + Husband, VictorViper, ChrisQ + Brother, BrownSugarKnight, JoanofDark, a bunch of people, but it’s honestly difficult to get all their names on my phone, and I’m lazy.
People who might make it by 5:30: Canada Goose Snek, StarfoxC17 + wife
@jgf1123 had a good idea, so for anyone who is still interested in the dinner, lets meet-up near the registration booth at 6 p.m. That way everyone can register early then we can quickly plan some smaller gatherings.
Copied my post from down below. The TL;DR is that I couldn’t secure a location (that didn’t need a deposit and minimum spend) because we’re too large of a group. Sorry.
OK, so, I’ve unfortunately not been able to secure a location for this because we’re too large of a group.
So, at this point I suggest people just do a series of smaller gatherings. I know Pizzeria Ludica has games and good food and was able to host up to 18 people, so I definitely suggest people start there.
All the places @Shanneranner mentioned are close to the venue too and should be able to host a decently-sized drop-in crowd too.

They’re a little farther out, but I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Stormcrow’s locations, so they could be a possibility for people too.
I’m not sure what I’ll be doing yet, but I’ll probably post something on the SUSD Discord, and likely here, that afternoon/.evening to get an ad-hoc gathering together.
I’m sorry I couldn’t actually pull the larger gathering together, but for the people who want to put faces to names, definitely check out the short meet-up @UllinBethalto is organzing for during the convention. You can find the thread here.
