I won't be able to make it :-(. I've got a proposal due Saturday night, and it
looks like we're going to be editing it right to the finish line. I had hoped
to make the WikiNews meet up on Sunday, but I've also got a term paper due on
Tuesday, so -- I'll try, but it's going to be a crazy weekend. Sorry, and I
hope you all have a great time!

Here's the train station on Google Maps: http://goo.gl/maps/lkFNK (note that
it's NOT the big, prominent Union Station building, but a smaller, temporary
station behind it. Here are walking instructions from the 16th Street mall.
There's a ton of dining places in downtown Denver around 16th Street (here's a
I've eaten at the Noodles & Co across the street from the RTD Market Street
station -- http://www.noodles.com/locations/109 -- and I liked it!
It looks like the train's been early all this week, so it might make sense to
check http://www.amtrak.com/ before you go. You'll want to click on "Status",
and type in:
Date: Fri, Nov 30, 2012 (the train takes two days to get to Denver)
Train No: 6
From: EMY (Emeryville, CA)
To: DEN (Denver, CO)
They'll update the expected time as the train makes it way to Colorado. Hope
that helps, and have a great time on Saturday and Sunday!
