Perhaps Wednesday evening.
Post here if you are interested
I'm interested. I'll have my project manager with me as well.
Time and where?
At the convention center or other?
Will this be a mix with AVS Members?
Caught my eye-Please leave details!
I dont have any details yet.
Bill suggested Wednesday evening which makes sense to me. Figure 7 pm?
As for location...Ive never been to MN before. Can anybody recommend a restaurant ( with bar ).
This would not by any means be a formal type of event. Just some HT enthusiasts getting together to bullshit and do a little networking / friendship building.
I would probably be interested as well.
Can someone give me an idea of the best days to be a tcedia, I only have a couple days available to be out of my store.
I'm in. I arrive late Wed. afternoon and at this point my schedule is open.
I won't be going to CEDIA but I live an hour outside of Minneapolis and would love the chance to meet some of ya
As for what's good, I suppose that would depend upon then # of people and how pricey I can try and find some places.
I have a few recommendations. I've been each of these places.
Moderately priced. Probably get out at around $20/person.
Buca Di Beppo - family style Italian in an overblown atmosphere. (Lots of Christmas lights, huge cans of tomato sauce,statuary, etc. Fun with lots of folks.
Old Chicago - Good Pizza in a pub atmosphere, 100 different beers, deep dish their specialty.
More Expensive, probably $30/person
McCormick and Schmick's - very good seafood in a hunt club atmosphere.
Dish - eclectic American in an art deco atmosphere.
There are lots of other options, like great steak places, oriental of every description, etc.
Give me some direction and I can make further recommendations.
Any of those sound great to me, glad to have someone closer to the cities
I'm in the MN Audi club so I could ask those guys since they almost all live in the TCs
Ok, lets do Wednesday evening then.
What are everybody's preferences ?
Ill eat anywhere but I am doing the Atkin's diet thing and would really like a big steak or some seafood.
Steak or seafood sounds great to me!
my wife is a vegetarian but I doubt she'll want to come along anyway And if she does any plance that's not strictly a steakhouse has food she'll eat.
Big pieces of meat! WooHoo!
For moderate Steaks, burgers, etc, I recommend:
Rock Bottom Brewery
LaSalle Plaza, 825 Hennepin Ave
Features steak, seafood, pasta, grilled chicken, burgers, ribs, pizzas. Beers brewed on site. Pub atmosphere.
For a real Steak treat (This is the midwest, we take our Steak VERY seriously here), these are some options, albeit more pricey...
26 S. 6th St., Mpls.—612-339-0909
The mauve room, the cowboy rib eye, the garlic toast. Minneapolis’s time-honored steak house—immortalized in Time by Garrison Keillor
Morton’s of Chicago
Gaviidae Common, 555 Nicollet Mall, Mpls.—612-673-9700
Perhaps the definitive steak statement locally. No one takes prime meat more seriously. Also serves seafood. Clubby atmosphere.
Ther eare others, like Murray's and Ruth Chris', all very good.
Adkins, huh? I'm doing Protein Power with my project manager. I've lost 15 pounds in 5 1/2 weeks and he's lost over 25. I'll go with the group choice as long as the time is still right for my free transportation back to my hotel. I suggest that we stay near the CEDIA venue for dinner. It'll make the evening trips to hotels much easier.
I like moderate . Lets go with Rockbottom???
So officially who is commiting to coming??
Bill Lucas and project manager
???? Please post here to confirm or send me an email.
Wednesday at 730 PM. I will call for reservations under the name HTF.
I plan on being there.
And since there isn't a date posted in this thread anywhere I'll just add this is for September 25 (correct me if I'm wrong, but that's the start of CEDIA )
Here's a direct link to the menu:
Hey guys! It looks like I'll be attending CEDIA but nothing's set in stone yet. I know it's a bit late in the game, but I just found out about it last week thanks to Bill.
I'm definitely up for the dinner Wed night if I do in fact come.
BTW, I really need some help choosing courses to attend. I'm sure a lot are already booked up. I have decent knowledge of speakers, system setup, etc. Do you think I need to attend Boot Camp or should I stick with business related courses since this is a fledgling business?
Feel free to email me with suggestions.
The business courses may be a good start and you should also look into the Installer I course and certification exam. It's a good certification to have.
Thanks Bill. I'll check out the Installer I course. I gathered from the course descriptions that the Boot Camp course is for a super newbie. Between my dad and myself we've pretty much got the basic construction and wiring knowledge covered. I'm sure I'd pick up some good info. but I imagine most of it would seem redundant to me.
