K, that's officially crazy talk :D

I'm pretty sure SuperFlyer is the only DDFer to every fly in from abroad for a DO ;D
Hmmm I do remember a certain DDF member saying he was going to Bulgaria(?) or something, for a DO. Granted, it wasn't a DDF DO.

Why not both?!
Why not a weeklong DO while we're at it? We can just fly around the country together.

If my company is spending $2K to fly me in, $500 on a hotel and a couple of hundred dollars on meals, no I can't disappear for a day of the 4 days I come in

Both milts and Ken's, have a Groupon deal, completely free, for 15% CB when charging a linked Visa or MC.

15% Cash Back at Milt's Barbecue for the Perplexed

15% Cash Back at Ken's Diner & Grill

Mods: I believe these links are referrals to my account, as I didn't know how else to do it. Please edit.

Will add Ken's (Milt's is there already) to wiki when I have a chance
