First of all, you may have noticed the temporary addition to our front page. We're trying to make sure the King of Denmark gets his due recognition as the Drupalcon DC King of Parties. However, he won't be the only one in attendance at the Uberdinner! The whole Uberteam will be there along with at least two dozen people who have given verbal confirmation and others who are sure to arrive. Anyone is welcome to come by... Ubercart users, developers, friends, and those who want to be. We'll head to the Meskerem Ethiopian Restaurant probably 30 minutes to an hour after the day officially ends to make sure you have enough time to wrap up your conversations and track down that Drupal rock star you wanted to hug. The restaurant is probably close enough to walk, but I suppose we'll let you make the call for yourself. Last time we packed a restaurant out with 30 people... Our phone call leads us to believe they can take 2 to 3 times that number, so don't be bashful! Come join us for some good food and table talk (est. $15-30, depending on how much you love that Ethiopian stout ), and then we can all be fashionably late to the Chapter Three bash. In other news... my wife is pregnant, and we wanted to share it with everyone! Tormi said it was worth a front page post, so here it is. We can't wait to have Uberbaby 1.0 and see some orange, Ubershield emblazoned onesies in our child's future. No word on the gender yet, but it's the first child of the new generation on either side of the family, so he/she's sure to be loved. The Uberbaby is due late September, meaning Mrs. Ubercart probably won't make Drupalcon Paris this year. She's totally bummed, and it goes without saying that my attendance will hinge on her status... I wanna be there to deliver the little guy so I can start teaching him to program as soon as possible.
Looking forward to it! Maybe I just missed it, but I didn't see a restaurant name/address. Is that already posted somewhere, or are you waiting until an appointed time? Thanks for organizing this. I can't wait!
Whoops! Updated to include the link.
I think I'm going to enjoy this conference very much.
"Uberbaby 1.0"? What, are you planning on having minor releases?
I realize you are a fitness fanatic, but myself and google disagrees with you classification of walking distance to/from a building serving alcohol.
Walking directions to 2434 18th St NW, Washington, DC 20009

We actually had everyone walk that far in Boston from the convention center to an Ethiopian place near our hostel... which we discovered wasn't near anyone else's hotel. It was a nice walk, tho... it'll help you build your appetite.
congrats. looking forward to your new childs first commit.
grow old and wise.
Warm regards from sunny MÃ©xico!
