I'll be at SXSW '09 too. smile

Starting to talk to some of the native Austin Godbit people about a possible venue.

If anyone has suggestions, or wants to help lead the effort, please don't be shy.

Give me liturgy or give me death.

Re: Forth annual Godbit dinner at SXSW 09

I will be attending again this year.

TGIFriday's seemed to work well with folks in the past, and I don't mind coordinating with them (if that's where we decide to have it.)  We just need to decide what evening to have the gathering.

If three years makes a tradition, then it appears that monday night is the Godbit night.  This year falls on Monday March 16, 2009 at 6:30pm.  How's Monday for everyone?  Also when you reply, answer this follow-on question:

Would you be open to "staying afterwards" ?  It's been my experience (for the two years I've attended) that once the bills are paid, folks lingered for quite a while chatting and meeting with folks they didn't sit near.  I could check with the venue to see if we might be able to reserve that side room for that purpose after dinner.  Comments?

Sounds good to me. We'll be there and will stay afterward.

I might be attending this year and I'll definitely drop by dinner if I'm there.

Re: Forth annual Godbit dinner at SXSW 09

I'll be there. Thanks for doing all the hard work + planning Carl. Much appreciated! smile

Re: Forth annual Godbit dinner at SXSW 09

I don't expect to be - have fun!

Re: Forth annual Godbit dinner at SXSW 09

I will be attending SXSW again this year, and TGIFridays has been a great location.
Am open to stay afterward, but can't make it Monday night.
(I'm flying home Monday afternoon, because Tuesday is Mrs.' birthday.)

I think Matt Smith (of SquaredEye) is attending also.

buy me a ticket and i'm there!

Re: Forth annual Godbit dinner at SXSW 09

I've confirmed our reservation with the manager, Peter, and created the Official 2009 SXSW Godbit Dinner invite at Upcoming!  We'd appreciate if you could indicate that you will attend and indicate the number of guests you will be brining.

This isn't entirely related to the 2009 Godbit Dinner but I have a Southwest Airlines round trip flight credit that expires in a couple of months. I'm not going to have a chance to use the free round-trip ticket to anywhere Southwest flies before it expires. I don't want it to go to waste so I'm trying to sell it to someone who needs to save some money on a flight. I'm sure I can beat the cost of a last minute ticket. If anyone is interested, send me an email through the forum. It could be a cheaper way to get to SXSW.

He will return...
