With Kevin's permission, I've stepped up to take on organizing a beverage subgroup for Frederick WebTech. What's a beverage subgroup you ask? Well if you look around at other meetups in the area (Baltimore PHP and DC PHP come to mind), it's an idea that they've embraced and that work well for them.
Basically put, it's a second meeting each month from the main meeting, but instead of being centered around having a presentation and 'learning something', it's purely about having an excuse to hang out, relax, and socialize with like minded people.
One twist I'd like to introduce is making this a family friendly event! (At least my family will be attending with me). We will be meeting up at Brewer's Alley, in the bar area, but we'll snag a table. We'll officially get rolling at 6pm, but I'll probably always show up earlier with the family to snag dinner there first :)
Make sure that you RSVP at least a couple hours in advance, so that we can make sure and get a large enough table for everyone that night!
