June 7-8 in Sioux Falls, SD.
5101 S Nevada Ave Unit 150, Sioux Falls, SD 57108
This is the AARP state office, the building has a nice big room for us to use. This is my wife's employer - well technically she works for corporate (her position is based in D.C.) now, but keeps an office in the building. Anyways, lots of comfortable chairs for us to use. I'll get a count on chairs and may have to find more. Not sure yet.
Two hotels very close to the venue, and multiples just a few more minutes away. This is a smaller venue, so I'll probably cap attendance around 30 people.
Friday night plans are to have an informal get together at my place, I'll smoke a pork shoulder and some baked beans. Maybe carve up some local melons if they are in season, and of course adult beverages and music. Plenty of on-street parking at my place, and the garage, living room, basement, bar, utility room, and the Nerdery all have systems we can play speakers on. May be able to set up an additional listening space in the office. Mrs. JR and I will be staying home Friday night and probably the Hilton on Saturday night. I will call Hilton and Staybridge to see if I can get a rate. Where her and I stay will be dependent on the outcome of that phone call.

We are only a few minutes from the venue and the hotel clusters.
There is a bad ass liquor store in striking range of the venue, called Williquors. It is the largest liquor store most of us will likely ever see lol.
Aways from our area is downtown Sioux Falls which has been renovated like a sumbitch in the last ten years. Lots of bars, restaurants, and other things to do. Very walkable.
This is my birthday weekend, so a celebration Saturday night at our favorite watering hole is likely to occur. I will talk to management there and see if I can block off a large table for all of us starting around 6PM. They have decent food and it is inexpensive to get your drink on.
We have excellent Uber and Lyft services in the area so I encourage using them since we also have excellent police service in the area. A DD or two are also welcome.
Anyways, the rules are similar to IowaDIY although I intend this to be more laidback as DDIY is known for that atmosphere. Speakers, music, camaraderie is the name of the game.
I will update this thread as things evolve.
