In just a few weeks, Paul and I will be at OCON 2009 — the summer conference of the Ayn Rand Institute — in Boston. Back in January, I mentioned that Paul and I would be not attend the closing banquet, as we prefer to have a private dinner instead. Here’s what I wrote:
As for the other events, Paul and I will be attending the opening banquet but not the closing banquet. We always go out to a fine dinner with friends instead of the closing banquet. We never much enjoy the random good-byes, the overly loud music, and the overpriced food of the closing banquet. Unfortunately, some of our usual friends will be otherwise occupied or absent from OCON. So, friends, if you’d be interested in dining with us on that July 11th, just drop me an e-mail sometime in the next few months.
I’m going to be finalizing plans for this dinner this week, so if you’d like to join us, please do e-mail me in the next few days.
