No Bueno on the Orpheum for the 1st of December

He's booked out into February

So.....

I'm looking for another venue

Suggestions anyone?

the gold club lol
no but seriously it's got a 360 view of a circular stage and we could have some cool group shooting happening there  as well as plenty of seating. booze. as well as a catwalk for maybe some fashion shots.  private rooms to rent for secluded shooting.  a front desk and entrance for getting badges and stuff.  then we can probably convince them to let us have a food potluck as well smile and i cant imagine strip clubs are busy during the day

Was an awesome day to shoot,though just a tad bit nipple when we got in the water at sunset(needless to say I think I'm done with the water for the season as even my sheltered lagoon was hit with kinda "brisk" northwest winds at sunset)

The food is pretty good.  That being said, the ambiance could use a bit of improvement.  I am not sure which Crabby Bills you are talking about but there is one right down the street from my IRB condo.  I would not mind having a small-ish gathering of folks(primarily ones I have met before or have been long time trusted members here) at my IRB condo.  Most people would have to park at the public beach parking a couple hundred feet away though.  Then, we would have the mini-studio in the condo along with the beach etc.  There is a really nice deck downstairs on the beach side and then from the condo there is a small balcony that overlooks the intercostal.

Maybe a late lunch time public M&G at Crabby Bills followed by a less public gathering for a few hours at my place?  Thoughts?

Sure.  A 1pm-3pm-ish food fest followed by a kinda-sorta-SSMNG for a good number of us...by invitation...and I would also be open to suggestion (from those that are invited) for others to be invited.  That way, ALL the people that should be invited, will be invited...or at least that is the way I figure it.  I just don't want random people that no one knows showing up.  It could be a fun gathering I think.  Folks can play with indoor stuff, balcony stuff, beach stuff, deck stuff, sunset stuff...whatever.

I knew someone was going to take this wrong.  We get some wacky drive by people in this thread sometimes and I am just not going to post my address in the open forum is all.  I will invite a verrrrrrry long list of people and then rely on those people to vouche for all of the others that should be invited...I don't know everyone.  That's it plain and simple but go ahead and read into it what you wish.  In fact, I will start the list right now...with one very special person at the top.  smile  The list will be edited a gazillion times I'm sure...and I am sure I will leave people off by accident during my first attempts but this is a group effort!!!  Feel free to chip in to help grow the list.  This  method seemed to always work in college, why not here?  Doing it this way, I never had to kick anyone out and I never had any problems.  This list below should be a fine starting point.  If this list is incomplete, which I am SURE it is, then let me know who needs to be added to it.  M&G's are not typically put together by only ONE person.  It is a group effort.  If it fails, then it is the group that failed.

it's important to have standards in any successful group
so i like the core group with a system of ability to vouch for others type of dealy

Sad.  sad
I am aware of a couple personality conflicts and I am only aware of one "falling out" among those in the list.  But seriously?!  Those folks that are not best buds should not be sitting on the couch together holding hands and kissing.  There's the domicile, deck, balcony and a big freaking beach!  If people are not mature enough to handle themselves in a group setting, they should not be there.  Holy Crap!  I have had my share of personality conflicts with people over the years, some of which are on the list and most were short lived I think.  I'm a big boy though...not 5 years old...and most things I have forgotten about or don't care about.  I'm no social butterfly but I can politely socialize with anyone...and even host.
