We are planning to meet Wednesday, Oct 31, 2012 before the concert at Gabriel's Cafe/Bar in the AT&T Hotel/Conference Center anytime between 3:30 -7 p.m. This will be an informal Meet-Up with Leonard's fans dropping in and out throughout the afternoon. Stay as long or as short as you want. Gabriel's Cafe is about a 15 minute walk to the Bass Concert Hall where Leonard will appear. Both the Bass Concert Hall and the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center are on the University of Texas Austin campus. Please see the links below for more details:

Anne & I will be attending the Oct. 31st concert, but we'll be in town for a longer period. We would love to get together.

Austin deadhead I'm willing to bet lives in Austin.

We can always google restaurants around the concert venue and pick a spot.

This will be my first time in Austin so looking forward to the city, the cohenites coming to this show and of course the Shiw itself. :)

My girlfriend will be with me. She's not a forum member but is surely becoming a fan.

Greetings Cohenites!

I've started a list of forum members interested in a Meet-Up Oct 31 in Austin before the concert and perhaps after. I'll be staying at the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center which appears to be the closest hotel to the Bass Concert Center. I think there is a bar/restaurant at the AT&T Center that could be a possible location to meet. However, since this is my fist trip to Austin, I'm hoping folks familiar with the area will have suggestions. Anyone else want to join in? Ideas? Suggestions? We've got two-and-a-half months to chat and put something together :D

I'm a student at Texas A&M and will be making the drive for both shows in Austin. I'm 20... will anyone in my demographic be at these meet-ups?

:lol:

Just kidding, not worried about it. I'm dying to meet other L. Cohen fans.

Howdy Texas guy; Leonard pulls people of all ages.

I look like I'm close to your demographic :)

HA! And to think I referred you here... you're already knee deep in place! Please count me in... and I'm sure Laura and her two, maybe three, friends, as well. I'll double check with her and come back to let you know.

Hi everyone
I have to say that it is not 100% that I can attend meet ups but put myself on the list as I am hoping to.
I will be able to confirm closer to the date.
I will be in town for both concerts.
Thanks again for starting this thread.
