    I just received a flier about this event from The Dream Factory.
    I will be emailing to see if they'd like us there in any "official" capacity, but I figured at the very least we could make a social event out of this. Here's the flier's text:

    I started drafting up the letter to The Dream Factory and then stopped...
    I think it would be better if I hear back from members first to know if they're interested in volunteering in or out of costume before I broach the subject to them and offer our services.
    Anyone interested? I've never been to this place before so I have no idea if costumers would even be able to navigate through the restaurant very well.

    I've been there, it's a nice place, and I'd definitely be up for doing it. Though I shaved on Sunday to do the Ani-thing, I might be able to pull off enough Obi-beard in time. Either way, I'm down for doing this! Send that letter, Nick!

    OK, email to Dream Factory is sent.
    If I don't hear back from them by tomorrow afternoon - I'll give them a call.

    Got a call from the coordinator and this event is a go!
    They would love to have us come out and pose for photos with the restaurant patrons.
    So please post here if you're interested as they would like to know what characters to expect so they can alert the media.
    I will be sending an invite to the 501st & RL for some extra support.

    Depending on how much my beard will fill in... either Obi-Wan Ep. 2 or 3. It's gotta be fuller for Ep. 3...

    I'll be there as Bossk. Hopefully, with some work, I'll be using my new feet too;)

    I'll leave that up to you T, but keep this in mind...

    Just heard back that the only changing area they can offer us is the restrooms.
    So for the folks that this doesn't work for - please let me know.

    Keep in mind that a costume is not required for this event. One can volunteer in their Rebellion (or Star Wars) shirt as well. That said, we still need costumers of course or we'll have no one for patrons to have their photos taken with. ;)

    OK, so do we all want to meet at the restaurant?
    And at what time? The event is 5pm-9pm, but we don't have to be there the entire time.

    I'm not sure that I can get there right at 5pm as I have to either wait for KS to come home to watch the kids or drop them off at grandma's after she gets out of work.

    I think I could do a 7pm-9pm definitely and could probably make it there earlier. How does timing work for other folks?

    Whenever's good for me, as I can either bum a ride with one of you, or take the bus, which goes right by Matthew's, to get there at my choice of time.

    BTW: Looks like the beard fills in "enough" in less than 2 weeks, so I'm gonna attempt the Obi-Wan Ep. 3 look again (hey, I got the new FX saber, after all, and that spankin' new hilt, too). Besides, I need to have some pix taken to get this costume variation accepted into the RL...

    How about we meet there at 6:30pm and troop (then maybe eat) from 7pm-9pm?

    We got a babysitter so KS will probably do TK so we'll have some armor there.
    I'm going to do Jedi I think as I still don't have a nice liner for my RFT helmet.
