Looking forward to that! Did you mean November 3? If so, any date works except that one. I might be bringing the toddler depending on the time of day if that's alright.

Sort of early for me to tell, but I believe I will be available for any of those dates, I would know more in a week or two.

Thanks for the correction, I've revised the original post. All toddlers welcome, although they'll find themselves in the unusual position of competing for attention with coffee gear. Or, the guest room can serve as a play area, if you want.

Oh that won't be anything new :) In all seriousness, we'd be staying for a shortish time anyway. She can "say" the names of most espresso drinks, and it'll be a few more months before she gets this. :)

The November dates would work for me better. I help coach my son's soccer team and the last game is on Oct 27th. I could make the 20th but have an 11 am game. We could show up later. I'm on call Nov 10th but could probably make arrangements. I
would have to leave if I get called, but probably could still make it work.

November best for me
MY AYSO soccer duties are done 11-3 so the 11/10 date is perfect for me
I will be in Canada on 11-17
Thanks Jim
