Organizers: 

Hey!
I'm in town delivering Drupal training for a few more days and I want to hangout with some locals!
I need your help to decide when and where.
I'm thinking of connecting around 6:00 or 6:30 for dinner and drinks.
Assuming some of you are available, what do you think we should do?
Thanks!

:-)

Sounds like a good time, count me in! They have some sweet go karts by the mall now that could be fun too!

I suppose there is somewhere to go

Not sure exactly what to recommend - depends on how many people etc. But I just got clearance Clarence. ;-) Whats our vector victor? :-)

Where I am...

FYI:
I'm 3min from the airport at the RedRoof on Wolf rd. Class is nearby and dismisses about 4:30.
I've got wheels and I don't mind a little drive if needed.

I haven't any wings in Albany yet.
Is there a good wing place anywhere around?

I love the 1/2 rack of ribs at WingsOver Evanston near Chicago!
Otherwise I prefer bone-in.
I'm still undecided.

I say we def narrow this search down to McGeary's & WingsOver! ;-)

So I know you said 6ish, but I get out of work in downtown albany at 4:30, any reason why we couldn't do this a bit earlier? like around 5-530?

Doug Vann? Who are you training?

We had some training from Doug a couple years ago, Doug is a great guy.

I remember that well

Thanks for the kind words, Peter!
Can you believe it was roughly 2.5 years ago I was delivering Drupal Training to the team of the NY State Attorney General's Office?
How's the life of the NYSAG Webmaster?
I confess, I only just now took a look at http://www.ag.ny.gov and there's a LOT of content over there!
Any brief words on how the process of building that site went?

Hi Doug

I'm in depending on where and when.

McGearys it is

I am guessing that we can be there by 5:30 at the latest. Wrapping up class now. If we will be there earlier than that, Doug will say so shortly.

Cool, I'm here now, outside.

Fun in Albany tonight!

Thanks Eric, Sean, and Tom for joining me this evening.
McGeary's was awesome!
I wasn't expecting outdoor dining. It was nice and cool and the perfect chill-out after our 3rd day of brain straining Drupal training!

On that note...

I'm back in town again the whole week of Nov 4th.
We'll have to schedule a meetup and get our Drupal on!

Stay Tuned!
