If we hold it in Chicago, Glorious Leader can lead us in the most efficient and tastiest GB R2 that Geekhack has ever seen. Anyone else dreaming about that Giordano's from last year? :))

That Mediterranean version of Pancheros was AMAZING!!  Sorry, I don't remember the name of the place.

If you're talking about the place we went when we were downtown it's called Roti.

It was downtown, after we all sat down, my wife looked at CBA's plate and immediately had buyers remorse.

Yep, that'd be Roti.

Rice plates are the best thing on the menu other than a few special menu things that only a few locations will actually make.
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

Especially if the venue is near the north shore like it was last year.

Um... Glorious leader is correct. We should just hold the con at Pita Inn and I'll just be eating nonstop. Well eating and telling everyone how much I love Galloping Ghosts.

KEYCON

Time of year affects location decisions (cost if it's a seasonal tourist destination, weather, etc).

Off topic: Something fun that was discussed 5-6 years ago...a map showing geo-location of GH'ers.

^^with that said. If Nashville is chosen, I HIGHLY advise not renting rooms in the downtown nashville area. Just east of downtown in Donelson (about 10 minutes) or Mount Juliet (about 20 minutes), you could get a room for like 1/3 of what downtown will run you.

pretty sure you are referring to Pita Inn. 

although I might have to bow that best find to CBA for chinatown.  We'll have to make it there earlier next time.

It seems "Other" Is getting quite a lot of votes, maybe we should compile the top two places and vote for them, and see what the concensus is.

Another vote for Nashville! I live in the city and have a line on a couple art spaces that might be willing to accommodate something like this. Someone get in touch with me if Nashville wins and I can get you in touch and help set it up.

And flights will be cheaper.

But Atlanta is like the unhappy compromise between Nashvegas and Theme Park/Beach land.

Six Flags Atlanta  .. the Georgia Aquarium in ATL is NICE, the zoo is too.

Now, if Tampa is done I HIGHLY recommend doing October, I was there last year and the weather was mild and Busch Gardens was a ghost town. I would be down for Tampa if I could find someone to ride with and share a room (costs on a trip alone would be way more than I can afford)

If you make me drive into Atlanta one more time I think I'll cry.

Yeah that wouldn't be enough advanced notice for most people to plan a trip anyway. For me it will have to be before my wife's due date in August.

If before August I will need it to be close-ish to make ir, I plan to hit the Asheville meet in june (so all extra funds are being saved for that). And if I only have 1-2 months to save I won't be able to go to Florida or chicago

Some of you people that voted for "Other" need to get some organizers to step up so we don't have this in Chicago two years in a row.  Again, nothing wrong with Chicago, it was a lovely Con, but variety.
