Austin Design and Visual Arts Network Message Board › Please suggest topics for remaining 2013 meetups
|Fletch Brendan G.||
OK everyone, in the interest of making the rest of 2013 go as smoothly as possible (considering how busy and hectic this time of year is), I've gone ahead and gotten all of our remaining meetups scheduled. The only meetups that still match the schedule we've used all year are at Yarborough Library on the second Wednesday of November, and at Cafe Express on the third Wednesday of December. However, a silver lining to this hodge-podge of availability around the holidays is that this allowed me to add a couple of meetups further away from the center of town; we'll have one in the far north near the Arboretum, and south of the river near Ben White.
What I don't have are discussion topics or presentations for each of them. Some of them are just social and don't need a special topic, but the rest (which are shown below in bold) do need something for us to do.
Please post your suggestions in the comments for what you might like to talk about, or if you (or someone you know) is interested, something to do as a presentation (demo, tutorial, hands-on show-and-tell, etc). If there's enough interest, we could do a group activity like another portfolio review.
Be sure to pay attention to the color coding and the times shown after each date—red are dayside meetups while blue are in the evening, and the pattern doesn't always straight-up alternate (unfortunately). All meetups are Wednesdays unless noted (the ones in the same week as a holiday). Also, at each meetup except two (which are noted), we'll have a separate room with either a projector or an HDTV to plug into.
October 30th, 6:30pm: Hallowe'en Social at Dog and Duck, Guadalupe between MLK and 15th
November 6th, 12:30pm: Galaxy Cafe at the Triangle, 46th and Lamar (we won't have a separate room here, and no projector or screen)
November 13th, 7pm: Yarborough Branch Library, Hancock Rd near Burnet
November 20th, 1pm: Genuine Joe, Anderson Lane near Burnet
MONDAY November 26th, 6:30pm: Thanksgiving Social at Halcyon Lounge/Coffeehouse, 4th and Lavaca
December 4th, 7pm: Holiday Party with Random Album Cover Contest, Mangia Pizza, Mesa Drive near Spicewood Springs
December 11th, 7pm: La Madeleine, Great Hills Trail near the Arboretum
December 18th, 1pm: Cafe Express, 24th and Lamar
MONDAY December 23rd, 12pm: Po-K-Jo's, South Lamar at Capital of Texas Hwy (we won't have a separate room, but we will have an HDTV)
MONDAY December 30th, 6:30pm: End of 2013 Social at the Ginger Man, 3rd and Lavaca
Thanks everyone in advance for contributing!
