All welcome! Oct 25, 2005

Dianatwin, if you need a place to freshen up you can stop in ( will have accomodations for two days there), especially if you are traveling early to avoid the traffic. This invite is open to all. just let me know. Looking forward to meeting fellow ProZ members.

Change in plans! Nov 2, 2005

Hi all! TRADOS/SDL has invited ProZ.com to join in on their "Flagman 'Academy' Awards Night" and we agreed. We'll be serving drinks and hors d’oeuvres at that event, but not food.

So we can either reschedule the powwow for another night, or just agree to have a late-night dinner (at 9:00pm, for example).

Sorry for the last-minute change in plans. What would you all prefer?

As for venues, this place can give us a room and a set menu: http://www.toiseattle.com/menu.aspx

If this looks OK, we can discuss more... Let me know what you all prefer!

  What are these?

The ATA Literary Division's late-night cafe is at 9 p.m. Thursday, so I may skip the late-night dinner.

Toi offering Nov 3, 2005

The restaurant Ti, a few blocks from the hotel, is offering our dinner and drinks in our own room (2nd floor), with space for up to 50 people, at $25/person. What do you all think? I can post the menu details if this is not too expensive.
