I can talk to Kerby Lane North, they have an open room on  Tuesday evening and that will solve both the parking and the noise problem and their need to add a little business in that room on Tuesday . . .  sound good?

One of the other problems of location is traffic and parking. When you choose a hole-in-the-wall place in the downtown area, it's very hard to get there. I recommend choosing a restaurant area close to major highways so it's easy to find and park. I recommend IHOP or Denny's, like the IHOP on 290 (across from Highland Mall and ACC), or Denny's on I-35 and St.John's.

Hi-
Thanks for your e-mail. It was nice to take the time to write itand take the time to do some in between organizing.

I attended one meeting in the early days of just moving to Austin. The one perception I have of Austin between this design meet-up and the AIGA here is everyone really likes to drink. While that is not a bad thing it is difficult to find a group who is interested in all the great subjects and topics of design. In the "bar" situation it does create an atmosphere of a "pick up" situation-your mentality changes and attitude may change when you are there to really just talk about type or a new paper or interactivity in web design.

I think there is a real opportunity to take this group to the next level and even create some situations about design in Austin that can be respected by the community.

I vote for a coffee location -where one may speak and hear.

><html><body>Hi, first off, my name is Fletch, I'm the new organizer, I rescued the group (literally at the last minute) back in April. I need to start by apologizing to everyone for not having been in contact, or actually done much of anything, since I took over the reins. My lame excuse is that at almost the exact same time I took over the organizership here, I was laid off from my job, and suddenly my priorities underwent a big reshuffling. <br /><br />The main reason for this message is to make a special request for as many people as possible to try and make June's meeting. I need help. I didn't want to see the group just die, but I really didn't intend to take over as the permanent organizer. I can probably do this through the summer, or if I get some help on the fees maybe longer. But mostly I need help with ideas and suggestions on what to do to get the group back on its feet again. That's what I want to discuss most of all at our next meeting.<br /><br />Also, what I really need input on immediately is how to find a new place to meet. I've heard many people say we need a different place than Halcyon before, so I'm definitely wanting suggestions from anybody about places they think would work well for as many people as possible to meet.<br /><br />I personally like Flightpath Coffee, where the Flash group has met a number of times. It's up on Duval near 51st, away from downtown, plenty of parking nearby, and its not as loud and cramped inside.<br /><br />But I'm not necessarily saying that's where we should have our next meetup. Anyone with any ideas, please post them here or email me. They don't have to be a restaurant/bar/coffeshop-type place.<br /><br />Please respond to this email with any suggestions you have, or post your suggestion in the thread that's been started on our Meetup message board: <a href="http://graphicdesign.meetup.com/38/messages/boards/thread/4746825">http://graphicdesign.meetup.com/38/messages/boards/thread/4746825</a><br /><br />I really look forward to seeing you guys on June 3rd. Thanks in advance for your patience, your understanding and your support.<br />
