If you live in the Metroplex, it’s time to get excited. Dorkfest is coming to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Sunday, February 24 from 1pm to 3pm. Please RSVP at this link if you can make it. Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean this is going to be more organized than the regular Dorkfests, and no, it won’t cost anything. It just means we need an accurate count so we can pick the right spot on the airport.
American has its annual leadership conference in February, and I try to go every year. But this year, media is only invited to come on Monday, February 25. At first, that bugged me since it meant I had to lose my Sunday to fly out. (It’s starts insanely early on Monday.) But then I realized this could turn into an opportunity.
I’d spoken with DFW more than once about putting on Dorkfest, my annual September event at LAX where we eat In-N-Out and watch airplanes. It would be pretty easy to do if I just came in one day earlier on this trip, so it’s on. As an added bonus, we’ll still get to see those beautiful silver MD-80s before American retires them forever. Don’t you want to see this?
So, here’s the plan:
What: Dorkfest. Have you not been paying attention?
When: Sunday, February 24 from 1pm to 3pm
Where: DFW broadly, we’re working on the location
Why: If you need a reason, you don’t belong at this event
Since there is no In-N-Out with a view, we’ll have to settle for some other place on property. DFW is going to arrange the location, but it’ll depend upon how many people are planning on showing up. So, PLEASE RSVP.
The guest list is hidden, so nobody will see your name. There is no cost, and you won’t be flogged if you don’t end up coming. We just need an accurate count so we can pick the right spot.
Hope to see you all there. Sorry, hope to see y’all there.
