More on LSA 2007
As previously mentioned, we linguistics bloggers are organizing a get-together at the upcoming LSA meeting in Anaheim. So far, it looks like there's no evening time slot that works well for everyone. The best one seems to be Friday from 5 to 7, but that conflicts with the ADS word-of-the-year extravaganza. Various other suggestions have included lunch on Friday or Saturday and having a "spot", perhaps in the hotel lounge, where whoever happens to be free at any given moment can gather and hang out.
I propose the following, then: drinks (and dinner, if you care to order it) from 5-7 on Friday in one of the hotel restaurants (maybe the sushi place) with whoever can make it, plus a hang-out spot to be announced. I suggest that, as happened last year, the 5-7 crowd on Friday plan to hook up with the ADS word-of-the-year folks after their moment in the sun. (BTW, I wager 100 quatloos on macaca.)
How does that sound? If you have any final suggestions or strong opinions, leave a comment. Otherwise, check back here for details late on Thursday the 4th, when I will have had a chance to scout out the hotel restaurants and bars.

The Vegas oddsmakers have "brokeback" by 10 to 1.
Friday at 5:00 sounds good to me, too. I may also swing by the TBA bloggers' spot on my way to lunch or dinner on other days.
Cool, see you then/there!
The hotel restaurant is way expensive, but within a few blocks is an Indian place (which was good when I went earlier tonight), and also an IHOP. What did you find? As for a hangout spot, how about one of those sunken dens next to the bandstand platform thing on the first floor?
