I took this as a suggestion of TGIF:

But now you aren't?  or are you saying that its fine with you but we
might not get as many non-debian people?  If this not getting as many
non-debian people at this proposed debian social event is the drawback,
I'm fine with it.

We have a bunch of debian people agreeing that they want to get together
and a place that many of them agree on.  I don't see why we shouldn't
just do it.  Any time we meet we are going to leave some people out.  If
people feel like "But I don't want to any debian social gathering" its
probably a sign that we should organize gatherings more often.

If you have a better suggestion besides "I'm no longer happy with the
place I said I'm happy with", then lets hear it.  But right now, Pacific
Standard seems like the option agreeable with the largest number of
people that have spoken up, and its getting comparitively late.
