    August 9-13 I am shooting out to Santa Clara Cali for a tradeshow. I wont be at the conference for a good chunk of the time. So I am going to have all kinds of down time to play around and have some fun.

    Anyone know the area? Whats hot whats not?

    Good club, bar, resteraunt Scene info?

    I'll be at a hotel within 3 miles of the Santa Clara Convention Center. Not sure which one yet... our admin is out sick and she has all my flight hotel info

    What the hell are you doing way up there? The parties down here in Sothern Cal!

    Well I like you and all but not enough to make a 5 hour drive to have drinks. Maybe if you ever visit LA I'll buy you a drink for trying to kill you.

    Too bad you won't be in San Diego - I'll be there that same week for a conference also. We could trade pictures of our computers because I know you keep one in your wallet just like I do.

    Probably the same one - ESRI for GIS users. Something like 30,000 people turn out for this thing. The city sponsors a fireworks show for chrissakes and the party on the last day is supposed to be outta hand. All I know is a gal I work with booked us rooms at a nice hotel and she's all excited about free happy hour in the jacuzzi from 3-7 everyday.

    Stupid IEEE EMC Convention.
    You can buy me a drink anytime man. Too bad though, then you could have seen why you probably wouldn't have suceeded.

    I've never been to Cali before and I am geographically delinquint so I dont know the difference between northern and souther cali.

    Its a free trip across the states anyhow.

    LOL...you got me. I carry a pic of my PC like I would my kid in my wallet

    Northern Cali: Think "forests and silicon". Half of it is expensive homes, tech companies, and San Francisco. The other half is mountains and trees.

    Southern Cali: Think "beaches and skating". There are a lot more bad areas to the south, but it's got the "SoCal" culture, and Hollywood (which is sort of a pit unless you live in the hills)

    I'm from Long Beach (LBC represent! j/k ) which is just outside of LA. I lived on the good side though, so not quite from where Snoop Dog or Sublime is from, but very close.

    I decided to stay in San Jose. It looks like there is a little more to do out there. Its not that far from the convention center in santa clara.

    I'll be at the Downtown Crowne Plaza is anyone wants to go tear it up

    I am bringing my digi-cam so I am sure there will be pics to follow.

    Welcome to Cali Fester!!! Oh, what? You're not here yet?

    You'll love it, in fact I think you'll love it so much that you'll want to live there permanently.
