I'm at the Best Western Gateway Grand a week early. Don't use the hot tub. Or the pool. And don't question the weird smell emanating from your pillow case.

I am assuming what you wrote above means you are there to do 25yr olds for the rest of your life.
Gainesville is likely a good town for that and 25 is a good age choice.
Young enough that it's all still young but old enough that they have really learned how to use it.

Will there be a genuine Hong presence at this years event?

Is it any cleaner this year?
Last year the stairway carpet looked like a barroom floor, and there were pubes in the towels. Lovely.

I remember hearing of Les building a LS-powered Pinto or something, but that was back in January. That dude is a riot. He better be there.

Eat at Leo's on University for me. Thick slice of pepperoni well done with a quarter dozen on the side. I've had that duo probably 100 times in my life. Not the best in the world but it gets the job done.

Or, get some fries from Gyro Plus a few blocks east on the same side of the street. They now have the best fries in town by default since Stubbie's closed last month.

Les is coming. I can't always follow his thought process when he's drinking so I'm not sure if he's bringing a car or not.

I used to travel a lot for work - I used to bring a spare t-shirt and lay it over the top of the pillow for this exact reason.

I was there from '04 - '09. The only things left of the Purple Porpoise at that time were stories and legends.

It's Gator City now, or should say Gator City sports pub is now where the porpoise used to be. Interesting little place called Balls next door. That's a bar that should be right up Poopy's alley. (Actually it's not a bad little dive bar, don't be an idot and actually make friends with the older guys behind the bar and it's not a bad place to go. I have no clue who owns it now after the previous owner passed away. But I used to enjoy working next door to those guys. Never had a drunk I could handle by giving a yell out my back door for some help. It's amazing what happens when you keep the local bouncers fed well)
