I am in early planning stages of DDIY 2014, but the venue I plan on using really likes some solid advance notice.
I am shooting for May/June (between InDIYana and MWAF), so am now soliciting preferences for any weekend during those months.
The venue I have is not large, but should seat 10-15 people with ease, maybe more if elbow-to-elbow is not an issue.
It has a full kitchen on-site, so lunch could be made considerably easier.
So far, plans are for anyone coming in Friday evening to meet up at my local favorite watering hole for dinner and drinks. Meeting at the venue Saturday AM ~8 or 9 for a day of listening and nerding out.
Saturday night, I'll have one of the wife's bands book a gig and I will reserve a table for us - she has just recently been hired to sing for a rock-a-billy band in addition to her blues rock/pop band so there will be a couple options there.
So if you are interested in attending and have ideas on the weekend(s) that will work for you, feel free to send me email:

I can arrange for group transportation to the wife's show, if necessary.
I could have lunch catered in from my favorite watering hole, as well, if we do not feel like cooking.
I will create and update an official Facebook page in the near future, and link it in my signature.
