Who’s going to National?
January 21st, 2008

So y’all know registration is open for National, right? Go to www.RWANational.org and reg. I know a lot of people are complaining about the fee and hotel rate this year, but frankly, I think it’s the best couple of grand (combined expenses) a girl can spend on her career. Find someone to share a room with, and before anyone complains about the room rates, don’t. San Francisco is expensive, and ya get what you pay for, and I for one am very happy I won’t be melting in Dallas. That Dallas heat and humidity was atrocious. Kudos to those of you who live in it. You can have it. But then, I’m very spoiled by California weather. Other than Nor Cal you’ll only get better weather in San Diego, which by the way is hosting the 2011 conference? Can’t wait!

So back to San Francisco in July. Can’t beat it. Lots to do, fabo food, and so very diverse. Chinatown, North Beach, Union Square, the wharf areas, the painted ladies, the museums, Sausalito and Tiburon across the Golden Gate. The entire city will be in bloom. I mean it is a huge global vacation destination for a reason, and not to beat up on Dallas again, hey, I love Texas as much as the next non-Texan, but ladies, Dallas doesn’t come close to the city by the bay. You will not find better food, okay, maybe in Manhattan, as far as the Italian goes, but North Beach is damn good, or better scenery anywhere. Chinatown is a must, and the seafood? Tops, although, I’m partial to Chesapeake Bay seafood myself, out here on the west coast we have a different ocean fare. Good, but different then what I grew up on.

For those of you coming in early or staying a few days later, you really need to check out the wine country to the north, and/or Carmel and Monterey to the south, which also grows some vera fine vine. In my opinion, you can’t beat San Francisco as a venue for RWA National, with perhaps the exception of Manhattan.

So, go register!!!

Let’s see a raise of hands. Who’s going?

    You already know I’m not going. I’d love to go, but the finances aren’t there this year.

    Karin, I’m going to National! Whoo Hoo! And I remember the Dallas mug. Got the frizzies just walking to breakfast at the B&B. LOL. Can’t wait to see Calif.

    I’m registered for the conference and the hotel as well as Librarian’s Day. I live twenty minutes south of SF but staying at the hotel is like a vacation for me!

    I was all prepared to be there, I had my money mostly saved, and then my daughter chose July 31st (a week day is cheaper) for her wedding.

    I’m debating!! My house needs new floors badly! I don’t know when BEA is…and it’s hard to get away from the kids and make sure they’re taken care of.
