LeafyD plans on offering some suggestions here shortly. The idea is meet around 8, then finish sometime or after 9 then walk across the street and setup and relax for the day..

Then dinner in the evening ;) Allan has that covered already.

Sorry to chime in so close to the event, but there's a restaurant on the Hyatt Regency premises called the Watertable, relatively new facility, which offers a nice breakfast menu, starting at 6:30 in the morning. Jason and Hilda will be staying there, so that might be convenient for them, and the rest of us who want to go can park at the event across the street, with our free voucher passes printed out and walk across the street on their overpass walk, dine, and then go back to set up canopies, get our materials and displays set up and be good to go! I need to be there at 7:30 just so I can get out by 8:30 and across the street to help out. Those setting up and manning the booth should have things in place by 9:30 latest for the opening at 10 am. But of course those who want to stay and dine leisurely should do that and join us later. There's also a Surf City Grocers there with a Starbucks that offers more casual fare. So who's up for breakfast by the sea?

I'm planning on meeting you guys at the hotel for brekky around 8 am. I've been asked to display my Leaf for the event, so I'll drop it off, then join you for breakfast.

I can't stick around for dinner, though. Got family plans for the evening.

Is anyone going to Alt Car on Friday. If so, find me, I'll be there early, hopefully.

Remember that there's charging nearby a block or so away at the Hilton.. so if anybody needs it.

I think we'll plan on parking across the street first, then walk back to the hotel maybe. See you there!

I enjoyed the HB event, seeing you all as well as the BMW i8 and the Nissan 3-seater concept car.
The EV event at Diamond Bar was also good in its own way, with a good, articulate political speech by Paul Scott, and and a good technical speech by Wally Rippel that covered both the past and the near future of EV technology.

Today I saw not one, but two BMW i3s within one hour. One driver waved and said he recognized me from Saturday.

The next Hometown Buffet breakfast EV Gathering is this coming
Saturday, at the HTB on 17th street in Santa Ana. Directions in
this thread's first post.

We intend to install a "black box" type of logging system in Tom's
Tesla S, and there will probably be a special meeting on the 4th of
October to check out its operation during the week. When we decide
where to meet him, others will be welcome, I believe.

The following official Gathering (in Cerritos), will probably be on Oct 11th.
