And the answer is obvious, it's whatever you'd like the least, clay...
After looking at Java's clarification, perhaps I should withdraw the suggestion. I'm more interested in bringing people together than in dividing them into separate boxes. There will still be a get together on January 3rd. (Yes, we can.) There will still be woot-wine being poured. (Yes, we can.) All my acquaintances on wine.woot are still invited. (Yes, you are.) But that's not all.

I would like to attend but I will be in Mammoth snowboarding. Regrets.
Edit: that is, if you are sticking to January 3rd. I will continue to check in.

Re: the MLK SoCal event with non-locals in attendance - Will know more tomorrow, but I just heard that some family members who were planning on visiting in April are instead coming in January. If it's for MLK weekend, I’m grieved to say I'll have to miss the Joel and Michelle show entirely. Otherwise, I'm in but cannot hostess, stay too late or travel too terribly far to attend as my kids do not go to their dad's that weekend. Regardless of my involvement, let’s find a way to show some special SoCal hospitality to our Joel and his cradle robbee.
