Okay how about October 6th? First Saturday in October...

Sounds legit. I'm glad to see this thread has done a good job of garnering attention and uniting the airliners.net LAX family  drunk 

Can somebody get a list going?

I'd like to join you...may I join the list?

What would be the best, easiest way to get down from San Francisco to LAX? Driving? Flying? Train?

Fly. The drive is close to 7 hours, train is cumbersome and delayed lately, while flying is fast and gets you where you want to be, namely LAX.

That's true. The key is to slow down before going under a bridge. That is where they like to hide.

We've done that for New York, Las Vegas and New Years in San Francisco (2006) but people do tend to bail out on Sundays. Try to get the last flight out of LAX.
Usually it's Friday night and all day & night Saturday then maybe a breakfast/hang-over cure Sunday mornings and then off our separate ways.
