Raleigh First Friday!

First Friday will soon be here! For those not familiar with First Friday, on the 1st Friday of every month, many downtown Raleigh bars, restaurants, and galleries have special events going on from 6-9pm. It's a really fun time to walk around and check out new stuff, or just chill at a bar/restaurant with some friends. See more here: http://www.godowntown...

 I figure we can meet at the Busy Bee Cafe (my current favorite bar) at 7pm next Friday (Aug 5th), and figure out what we want to do/where we want to go from there. I think that will give us all some flexibility, and more time to chat with each other without having to worry about answering trivia questions. Get psyched!

    Oh, and one last thing: if anyone has any particular place they would like to go, or museum to visit, or whatever, just file it away in your brain and let us know this evening. We are pretty diverse and trying out new things is always a good time!

    Okay everyone, first I have to say wow, what a turn-out! We will be hard pressed to find space for 19 of us at Busy Bee, but I will do my best to get there early and reserve some space.

    I am planning on wearing a blue-striped shirt and a white UVA ball cap, so that you all will be able to find me/find the group. I will try to have a sign indicating our group as well. I will keep my eyes peeled for new faces! See you guys out there!

    Thanks Jon, a sign would be much appreciated! Looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow.

    Drew et al., Busy Bee Cafe has the potential to be busy on First Friday, and it may be difficult for me to get a table for all of us (since we have such a large group). Worst case is that we meet outside of the place and scurry along to wherever the wind takes us next.

    I'll think of a good way for everyone to find us (a sign or something), and post again sometime tomorrow. Thanks everyone for understanding!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
