Guess who's coming to San Francisco

I was just checking the Convention & Visitor Bureau calendar. We're used to Oracle, the Bar Association, conferences for nurses, podiatrists, the food industries, city planners, bordello owners, etc. But here's something that almost made me ROFL. The Greater Philadelphia Leadership Exchange is meeting here in San Francisco Sept. 10-13.

Well, that was just too intriguing to pass by, so I Googled this organization and learned that "The Greater Philadelphia Leadership Exchange is an initiative of the Economy League to develop leaders of business, civic, and government organizations into visionaries dedicated to making Greater Philadelphia a world class region."

So they are having their convention in San Francisco. I'm trying to decide if they want to learn how to do some things better, or how not to do some things.

Forgot to add: here is the website to check the convention schedule for 2 years ahead. You can plan when to come and decide whether or not you want to share the City with a certain group of people.

Having spent quite a bit of time in Philly and the surrounding area ... I'm thinking they want to get out of town (apologies to any Philly residents out there).

And I thought our local leaders were the only ones who misspent $$...

Kind of like The Cancun Tourist board having a meeting in Zihuatanejo.

When the bordello owners come to town, do you think we could get them to take the mayor and board of stupidvisors back home with them?

Heehee, I didn't think this thread would be so amusing to so many people! :^D

In your fondest dreams, Caffiend! They're having too good a time running their own bordello at City Hall, and they're doing an oddball twist on the world's oldest profession: doing "you know what" to US while WE pay THEM!

Perhaps they want to learn about tooth brushing as the California Dental Association meeting is Sept 9-11 in SF.

Sheesh.....perhaps they'll combine all 3 and brush after visiting the bordello and learning how to make a better Philly Cheese Steak!

...looking forward to visiting SF and my favorite Chinese greasy spoon ...Sam Wo's.
