Based on the counsel of those who have run other meet-ups, we should keep our expectations of the event focused on getting to know each other :).  Or, in the words of the Diva (navajo) who has inspired us all: "we do these just to hug each other and have fun." Our logistical constraints are such that trying to accomplish any formal agenda is not practical.

I'll have a sign-up sheet to help me address the still-pending question of who wants what personal information to be shared with the group, and a review of what DKos group mail can and can't do, but that's about it in terms of business.

How will you recognize me? Well, here is one good photo of me, with navajo at NN12. (Sorry, in too much of a hurry to embed it properly in the diary right now; I might have time to return to do the edit later.) I'll be wearing the same blue jacket and orange scarf, and I'll be with my handsome husband, who will likely be sporting his favorite item of clothing of late, his light khaki Stetson. In addition to everything else people usually wear, that is; no scandals emerging here!

I'm very much looking forward to meeting you all tomorrow, those of you who can attend. May this be the first of many such get-togethers for our great crew.

4:51 PM PT: Please note that one of our members has asked us to keep in mind this important element for each other's comfort: avoiding the wearing of fragrances. Some people are very sensitive, even allergic, to the scents and other chemicals in perfumes, aftershaves, and the like.
Naturally, there will be limits on our ability to control our environment given the dozens of other diners in the restaurant, but our mindfulness can help. Thanks much!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
