Tomorrow is the big day! Just a few notes.
Access to the State Capitol is limited on weekends to just one door, in the Glass Pavilion, on the North side of the Capitol (close to 11th and L Streets). From that door, Room 126 is easy to find: take the first hallway to the right, and it’s the first room on the left.
We will first meet at 11:30 a.m. at the River City Brewing Company in Downtown Plaza Shopping Mall.
Meeting starts at 1 p.m. and runs till 3:30 p.m. Documentary film will run 1.5 hours, so that will start at 2 p.m.
Afterwards, we are free to do as we please. I discovered Chops Steakhouse doesn’t open until 5 p.m., so I suggest going over to Bento Box afterwards, unless we have a better idea.
Here are plans as they currently stand for the 2003 California Gubernatorial Election 10-Year Reunion, in Room 126 of the California State Capitol, in Sacramento on Saturday, October 12, 2013. Jon Zellhoefer recommends for lunch the River City Brewing Company in Downtown Plaza. Their address is: 545 Downtown Plaza #1115, Sacramento, CA 95814 - (916) 447-2739. On Saturday, they open at 11:30 a.m., and so I’ve secured a reservation for eight to ten people, starting at 11:30 a.m. I might leave at 12:30 p.m. just to double check on the setup, but the get-together at the State Capitol starts at 1:00 p.m. and runs until 3:30 p.m.
Afterwards, we can go where we please for more conversation. There are several places that come to mind. The lobbyists seem to prefer Chops Steakhouse on the K Street Mall. Their address is: 1117 11th St Sacramento, CA 95814 - (916) 447-8900. (They have a big party room downstairs, but it costs $750/day, so maybe we’ll stay upstairs, and go downstairs just to gawk at it.) I like Bento Box for its Asian food and young vibe. Their address is: 1101 16th St, Sacramento, CA 95814 - (916) 706-1286. We can choose what we please.
