Questions from the crowd

Where do you wear bells on your black tie outfit?

Your choice of on your cummerbund or your sock garters.

Can integer factorization be done in polynomial time on a classical computer?

That was Jeff Dean's 5th Grade science fair project, but he can't get it off his Commodore 64.

Why if I decline does it not allow me to select zero guests attending? Also, it shouldn't allow me to send 8 kids when I'm not going.

The website's form generator isn't smart enough to do conditional forms.  I should have just used Google Forms.


No, one of the bridesmaids is allergic to hoofed animals.

Am I allowed to jump into the tidal pool?

After formal pictures are done, what happens in the tidal pool is between you and the museum staff...

Does Dinner and Dancing last until the Brunch?

Sadly, no.  Dinner will wrap up by 9:30 and the dancing has to end by midnight because that is the penguins' bedtime.  If you ask nicely, we might have drinks in the hospitality suite.  You can also continue the dance party where ever you are staying that night.

What is the late night snack?

You choice of enchilada verde with guac and chips or pizza with a chicken wing.  I don't think either of these are vegan or gluten-free, but I got tired of arguing with the caterers about that.

Are you STILL undecided about the honeymoon?

As of Friday, June 26, 2015, we are pretty sure we are going to the north shore of Kauai, Hawaii.  But we actually done anything about it yet.

UPDATE - July 4, 2015 - We are now sure we are going to the north shore of Kauai, as we have plane tickets and a hotel room.

How "whatever" can our attire really be? Will it really be okay if I wear a T-shirt?

Lawrence, you can where a T-shirt.

How did you meet?

We met through a mutual website, though I (Beth) am convinced we would have met eventually anyway.  I contacted Lucas because he bikes, rock climbs, and likes Mexican food.

Are kids welcome?

YES!  You should feel encouraged to bring your children -- this is the science museum after all.  We will have babysitting available, both for when the little ones are tired and when they are tired of hanging out with the grown ups.  Details are still being worked out, but there will be some fun activities for the kids.

Oh, and the tidal pool will be open during cocktail hour!!!!!

How should I get There/around?

It depends....  There will be transport from the Grand Hyatt to and from both the Welcome Dinner and the Wedding.  We'll start running the shuttles back to the Grand Hyatt ~ 10pm.

If you are trying to get from San Francisco Airport to the hotel, it will depend on the time of day.  During Rush Hour, taking BART might be worth it.  Otherwise, taxis are a good option.  The SFO Website says it will be ~ 50$.

If you are coming from the South Bay, you should car pool!  (There will be an open bar after all.)  Parking is available right at the CalAcademy.

What's for dinner?

Good question.  We are finalizing the menu, but it will be a buffet with lots of options for everyone!  And cake.  And cookies & brownies.  And an open bar.  And a late night snack if you stick around long enough.

Are you changing your name(S)?

We cannot decide on a shared last name, so we are sticking with our original names. You should feel free to refer to us as either the Pereiras or the Schweinsbergs.

Where are you going on your honeymoon?

We dunno.  That's too far in the future to worry about yet...
