Meet. Geeks. Meet & Geek.
It is quite possible that you have missed out on many of the former M&G extravaganzas. If you HAVEN'T attended before, I promise you that you are in for a fancy-pants treat. (Not that you have to wear fancy pants. I might very well be wearing sweatpants, myself.)
If you HAVE attended, you can stop reading now and just RSVP yes.
Meet & Geeks are sort of a cross between the titillating adventure of an adolescent social mixer, the high-elevation discourse of an academic meeting, and the proud, gleeful, chattering chaos of the lobby before the opening of a con.
In other words, they're awesome.
My purpose in running Geekery is to facilitate connections between people who wouldn't necessarily find each other otherwise - and through doing that, to help all of us feel more comfortable with who we are and what we have to offer others. I take this mission seriously. Given that purpose, Meet & Geeks are at the center of Geekery's center-ness. (Couldn't really figure out the metaphor there, but you know what I mean.)
So IF YOU COME TO NOTHING ELSE Geekery does, COME TO THIS. At least once.
We're trooping to Barriques because it satisfies the needs of those with a thirst for hooch and those who prefer their fix via caffeine and/or sugar. (In case you have never visited one, Barriques serves wine, beer, coffee withorwithout alcohol, fancy sodas, soups, salads, sandwiches, and pastries. [Really too bad I couldn't find a way to end that sentence with another "s" word. Ah, well.])
The Barriques on Park St. is located across from the intersection of Park St. and Fish Hatchery Rd. There is limited parking in the actual lot, but generous (free) street parking. I believe it is a safe area for someone walking alone to/from their car, but if you'd like an escort, feel free to call me when you get there.
As always, I am available for comments, questions, criticisms, feedback, queries, suggestions, or to receive large quantities of untraceable funds.
