Beth and other attendees--
     Well, sounds like a good idea to me.  The shindig is advertised 
as starting at 3 pm, but someone said there is also a catered 
luncheon (which however is not mentioned elsewhere).
     If there is nothing going on before 3 pm, i imagine we could meet 
somewhere close to (or in) the Townsend Center around 2 pm or so for 
drinks and conversation.  But since i haven't been in San Francisco 
since approximately 1964, someone else who is more familiar with the 
area might be a better choice to suggest where to convene.
