RE: CSUN Dinner on Tuesday around 8 PM

Let’s set a meeting time/place and the Hyatt, like at the main entrance where the taxi pickup is, and leave together from there.

1.      Transportation


I was also concerned about transportation but I realized that we can carpool to the restaurant using Uber or Lyft after the keynote speech.  Since Rich strongly recommends the restaurant, we may want to give it a try.  It sounds like a good idea to get out of conference site once! 


Here is the uber/Lyft info with bargain info from


For Uber <>  use coupon code uberbargains which gives you $20 off your first ride as of the time of this article. UberX is their cheapest option. For Lyft, <>  use code JASON4232 to get $20 toward your first ride. 



James, you can come to the restaurant directly from the airport. You would need enough distance to use free $20 Uber credit ;-)


2.      Restaurant reservation 


I called Georges restaurant to find out about reserving the seats. They said I can reserve seats for 10-12 people at 8:30PM on Tuesday, at Ocean terrace, which is perfect.  A view from ocean terrace looks amazing.


Please let me and Michiel know what you think about this plan off the list from now on.


Gee, now people will call me as social chair of ARIA WG. ;-)


Thanks, everybody.

I won't arrive in time to get to La Jolla - flight doesn't land until 7pm (and also have no car)
I prefer something local.

I can go away from the hotel. But need to be back by 10:30-11, and I won’t have a car. Can anyone commit to driving and heading back early?

Guys, if a number of you want to stay close to the hotel that is fine. I am going to tied up for 3 days around the conference hotel and would like to get out. :-)


Please let me know if you all want to stay in close. If you do I will head out separately.
