OOW - Apex evening

Well, everything got finally arranged... I just received the registration confirmation of my first Oracle Open World. I really liked my first stay in the United States; ODTUG in Washington... Now I'm looking forward to visit San Francisco and meet my online Oracle friends in "real life"!

I didn't manage to get a direct flight from Brussels to SF, so I'll spent some minutes in Chicago ;-)
On October 20, somewhere in the evening, I'll cross the streets of SF for the first time...
Almost all hotels near the Moscone Center were fully booked, so I'm staying in the "Best Western Grosvenor Hotel SFO", 380 South Airport Boulevard, South San Francisco, CA 94080.
Somebody else staying there too?

I'm currently looking what to do in the evenings. This is what I already planned:
- Sun 22/10 at 7pm: "Welcome Reception" at Yerba Buena Gardens and Howard Street
- Mon 23/10 at 7pm: "OTN Night (or OTN Underground)" at the Marriott Hotel, Yerba Buena Level and sumptuous Westin St. Francis in Union Square
- Tue 24/10 at 7pm: "OOW2006 Blogger Meetup", organized by Mark Rittman in the "Thirsty Bear Brewing Company", just around the corner from the Moscone. Afterwards there's also the Appreciation Event with sir Elton John.
- There will also be a "Belgium evening" together with Oracle Belgium, but that's not yet planned. Update: Benelux Cocktailparty - Mon 23/10 6pm-9pm
- John Scott and I are also organizing an "OOW APEX meetup" evening! You can subscribe here. The post in the APEX forum is here, initially started by Joel Kallman.
