Steve, this sure seems like a good reason to extend to a 3-day weekend.
It would actually be extending a 3-day weekend in to a 4-day weekend, since we're coming up on Friday. Even then, I'd do it if it were just me, but I'll have 6 members of my family making the trip and most of them don't have the schedule flexibility that I do, unfortunately.

Flying solo, I'd be there. However, it may take a bit to convince the wife... I already pulled the "All Star Game as our vacation" trick off, anything else might be greedy.
I'll do my best. Sounds like it'll be fun.
Awesome. Be sure to say "Hi". I'd like to meet you.

I was just reminded that my wife's birthday is Monday. I wanted to remind her we will be together for many years, but this is a once in a lifetime meetup, but that seemed like a bad idea.
I would like to buy your wife a birthday beer, if she'll let me.
