Awesome, I'll tag along if I don't totally bomb out the presentation
and run home in shame! :P

One concern though;

The Anvil! I have is somewhat valuable. I will need to keep it
somewhere safe if we go out for a bite or drinks. Given how close the
Firkin is to my place, I could probably take it home and then head
back to join folks after the talk, if the building where the talk is
closes up.
