All, our first meet up was a huge success. I am tentativily going to plan on having this MeetUp on the first Monday of each month.
Our next one is Monday, August 6th. We will talk about life, world events and anything else worthy of conversation over happy hour drinks.
By popular demand, here is a FAQ for this meetup.
Q: I only look at the cartoons and never really read the articles. May I still attend?
Q: I used to read the New Yorker but I haven't recently. May I still attend?
A: Yes. We are about like-minded people getting together and socializing. There will be no test on recent issues.
Q: Are we going to cover specific articles or have designated articles we should read ahead of time?
A. Absolutely not. I have no doubt that people will talk about their favorite recent articles. But this is really about just getting together and socializing. Note, I choose a bar for the next meeting.
