Just joking, Dave.  The big party would probably have been at wReam's

I'm not sure what you mean.  I'd say the first hurdle would be interest in such
a thing.  The second hurdle would be picking a place.  The third hurdle would
be setting a date.  The fourth hurdle would be hotel reservations.

Looking at the enthusiasm for this idea on here it doesn't look like it will
make it past the first hurdle.
