San Jose Meet Up

Posted: Mon May 21, 2012 6:09 am
The last time I was in San Jose to see Leonard Cohen, we met up at the following(text copied and pasted from Molly's origianl post in Oct. 2009):

Dinner at the Hedley Lounge, Hotel De Anza (
I talked to the catering manager (Jan) at the Hotel De Anza and she said that the best plan is for the first person who arrives to reserve an area for the rest of us (probably about 25 people). She said that when you go into the Hedley Lounge there is a big area to the right with couches and tables that would be suitable for us. We can order food individually once we arrive. She assured me that the service would be fast as I explained that a lot of us need to go and pick up our tickets at 6:00. I’ll try and get there about 4:00 but if anyone staying at the De Anza is there earlier then so much the better (I’m staying at the Fairmont).
// End of Quote

I suggest we do this place again. I thought it was a hit.

I'm so glad there will be a San Jose meet-up! I'll couldn't get a friend to come to the show, so I was afraid I would be a lonesome hero that night. it will be lovely to meet some of you. There's lots of hidden parking down Notre Dame and Almaden, and a great happy hour, so Hedley is a perfect pick.

Greetings all! Last time Leonard played here, I was the journalist who wrote this cover story: ... -0945.html
It was one of the funnest things I ever did.

I am no longer on staff at that paper, but I will be at the show. Would love to meet any and/or all of you. I can essentially walk to the show from where I live. Should I just arrive at the Hedley Cub? Or is there another meeting place?

With palms together,

Yes just gone by the hedley.

It doesn't seem we will have the fifty plus(quantity) people that attended the last time, but we will make a night if it anyways. :)

My # if anyone needs it 213.400.0723

I'm also one without a friend able to attend, I'd love to meet up at the hedley! I've already my ticket(s) and so I'll not need to go pick up. If I heard correctly there may be free parking near that location?

Good times ahead,
