    Saturday afternoon is fine by me too. Do you have a preference for a place or type of place? I was otherwise just going to suggest a bar/restaurant place like Rock Bottom or Karl Strauss. I'm in UTC and am close to both of these (plus each are downtown if that's more convenient).

    The question for Chris is whether he has a laptop that he could bring with the game on it. :)

    Jim, I have no preference location-wise, only that it has plenty of free parking spaces nearby! :)

    Ok, sounds good. I think Rock Bottom in UTC might be a good choice then. I'm not sure if Karl Strauss (Sorrento Valley) is even open on Saturdays. Is 3pm a good time? Chris, where are you? :)

    The Karl Strauss in Sorrento Valley is closed on Saturdays (except for big private parties).

    I should be able to make it on Saturday at 3pm. Just as long as I don't have to drive further south than La Jolla. :)

    As for a demo, I don't have a presentable build at the moment. The last several weeks I've been adding the final set of features to push the game into a true beta, so the game is in pieces at the moment. The last presentable build I have is a focus test demo, which I rather not show since it's nearly two months old.

    Plus I'm not even sure my old laptop could run my game. :) I'm scared to try...

    However, next meeting I'll give you guys a CD with unreleased extended movie clips, which show off more of the game.

    The bar area. There are all sorts of mini-tables there. I'm the guy with short brown hair and glasses.. I may be with a bald guy with glasses. :)

    I just wanted to say we had a cool meetup earlier today with myself, a friend of mine, Rob, and Chris. It was cool meeting the guys from here, and it will be cool to do it again soon. :)
