    Great time at Easter Dinner at 400 Beach Drive. What a fun time and opportunity to get to know some very nice people. I am looking forward to other Meet ups. Nancy

    I am really so sorry. I cancelled this a few days ago but I see it's still on my calendar so it must not have completed when I tried.

    I can't be there until around 8, will people still be there? :)

    April 19, 2014

    • John

      Probably. Might want to text me though.

      April 19, 2014

  • John

    Because of the art festival down here parking is minimal you may want to leave early and you will probably have to walk a few blocks.

    If this is your first event please make sure you find me and say hi.

    April 19, 2014

  • Kevin

    I didn't meet the RSVP deadline but I was going to be here on my own (I have a later engagement in the area) so if you don't mind, I want to slip over and say hi to quite a few people I know from the attendee list and perhaps meet some others. :-)

    Sorry to cancel. Didn't realize this is during Easter weekend. Have family and other activities. Hope to meet the group soon.

    If anyone can get there earlier and start grabbing a few high top tables and maybe get the area in the South East corner of the Canopy by the glass railing, that would be a great spot to occupy for the group. Thanks!

  • Diane

    I am a new member as well and looking forward to meeting a lot of great people!

    I'm looking forward to it but am concerned about what parking may be like. Parking is difficult when there isn't an art fair going on.

    April 18, 2014

    • John

      Yes, parking could be a challenge. I might recommend people park in the parking garage at 117 2nd St North. You'll have to walk about 4 blocks but might be better than the headache to look for parking on the street.

  • JILLIAN

    I am not going to make it, Easter plans. Have fun!

    April 18, 2014

    • JILLIAN

      Thanks! I love this venue! I'm really sad I'm going to miss it. I wish it was on another weekend and not Easter weekend. This was my very first meetup that I went to and I met you and others in this group back in the summer at the Canopy. Another time. I see that it's a favorite venue for a lot of other people... perhaps we'll have to schedule this venue maybe once a month.

      It's possible! :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
