To clarify, I meant the two days immediately following the conference,
referencing Steve's message about staying an extra day to take advantage of
cheaper airfare home.

I suppose I should have more accurately said "Sunday and Monday", as that
would be how the hotel refers to those two nights...

I'm flying home Tuesday so I can take advantage of the cheaper airfare,
Monday red beans and rice, and one more day of beignets ;-)
