Wednesday, March 21, 2011 - meeting begins at 7 pm.
Our meeting place is Michael's Restaurant in King of Prussia, just north of The King of Prussia Mall on Rt 202. The address is 130 Town Center Road in King of Prussia,[masked]-3265. The meeting officially starts at 7:00 pm but many of us come early (beginning at 6pm) to eat and socialize a bit - but you can order your meal at any time during the meeting. We use a private room; the lighting and the acoustics are great. You'll have no problem hearing our speaker or each other. Just a reminder that you can order a scrumptious meal at Michael's off their extensive menu. PLEASE use the Meetup response to let us know whether you are coming as quickly as you can: it helps us plan for the evening. As always, feel free to bring a friend! If you have any questions, please contact me at [masked]. I hope to see you there.
