Kevin Dankwardt having kindly arranged new meeting space at Cavium
cafeteria (2315 N 1st St. in north San Jose), anyone with local
knowledge of a good post-meeting place can help.  And, let's face it,
the working core of Silicon Valley ain't a happening place after 9pm,
nor is this a gourmet paradise.  (Mountain View isn't, either, but 
at least there are more places open late.)



Ideal place:

o  open past 9pm
o  has hot food service
o  is within ~3 miles
o  has parking (makes downtown SJ difficult)
o  not too expensive
o  not too noisy, e.g., avoid death by karaoke
o  isn't 21-and-older
o  has at least some tables for 8 or so, and not too crowded at late dinner

   2.6 miles from Cavium.  Open to 10pm.

Suggest people huddle at the end of Wednesday's meeting, pick one, try
it, report to the mailing list whether it's a keeper.

My advice;  If paralysed by excessive choice, go for the Round Table 
Pizza.
