LSA Dinner

OK, it looks like the linguistiblogosphere LSA dinner is on.  After a lot of helpful suggestions, I think Ying Kee Noodle House looks like a pretty good choice: it's only a couple of blocks away and it stays open late.  I'll handle the reservations—RSVP by posting a comment—but we still haven't decided on a night.  Is Thursday or Friday better?  (I'm indifferent, unless Terminal Student knows something about our schedule that I don't...) [Update: turns out she has plans on Thursday, so Friday night it is.]

(BTW, I found a nice PDF map of the downtown area.)

I'm (very likely) there.

Also, in case the place doesn't work out, I was looking through an LJ (user: merle_food), which has a lot of reviews on Asian resaurants in the downtown Oakland area. Anyway, if necessary... (it's too bad there's no easy way to search the archives w/o downloading them).

OK, that's nine so far. I'll check back again in the middle of the day tomorrow (Friday), then see about making reservations. It happens that several people I know ate lunch at Ying Kee Noodle House today, and their verdict was tasty, but not fancy. They said the restaurant has only six to eight tables, so we'll have to play it by ear if they don't take reservations.

Let's plan to meet tomorrow evening after Penny Eckert's address in front of the conference registration tables. Look for me: I'll be the guy with the purple hair.
