The Edison

Hi Everyone,

Due to MANY of your requests, we're headed to The Edison on the 14th!

As many of you know, The Edison is a downtown institution. It's a steampunk themed lounge hidden in the Higgins Building on 2nd street. It's a must see destination for everyone.

On Thursday the 14th, there's a performance by Lyndsay & The All Nighters, with the first set beginning around 8:30pm. To see what Lyndsay's all about, check out www.lyndsayhaldorson.com.  The show is free, so don't worry about having to pay a cover.

Doors open at 5pm with Cocktail Hour through 7pm, which includes 40% savings on cocktails, wine, beer, and selected food items. And every Wednesday and Thursday, all bottles of wine are half off!

I called the venue to reserve a space for our group, but they wanted to charge a reservation fee of over $1,200, plus $25 minimum per person.  As much as I love you all, $1,200 is simply not feasible, so we will not be reserving a space.  However, they will staff the bar appropriately so service shouldn't be an issue.

Please keep in mind a few things:

1) DRESS CODE - no sneakers, bagging jeans, etc. If you show up in work clothes, you should be fine. If you show up in gym clothes, you will not get in.

2) When you get into the venue, go downstairs and find me at the bar closest to the stairs. There is another bar near the restrooms, but that one won't open til later in the evening.

3) Feel free to show up any time. For those of you who haven't been to one of our meetups, we usually hang out til 8 or 9pm, so don't worry if you're running a little late.  I will probably be there at 6pm. If you get there a little early and don't see me, grab a drink and hang out, or text me at 714*458*8668.  I promise I will be there :) The staff might not know my name, so your best bet to find me will be via text.

That's all for now.  If you have any questions, feel free to email or text.

Ken

    It's worth mentioning that everytime I've gone to The Edison, the entrance is actually down an alley called 'Harlem Pl' off 2nd Street (Next to Liliya China Bistro)... If you've never been there you will just see an alley and no entrance or sign that sais "The Edison"... Maybe they changed that but it was like that everytime I've been.

      Go downstairs and you'll see a bar at the bottom of the stairs. I'll be at the bar.
