    Hey Tod, I believe it starts at 7 PM (but i'm not 100% certain). The address also looks correct. It would be great if someone could confirm all of this info...

    Hi guys.
    We're all set with the event logistics. We have capacity for 80 people.

    We'll be giving you guys information that no one else outside of Amazon has had access to yet, so you probably want to show up for this one.
