    Here. Little early for the festival but the ticket table is in the middle of the building outside :) I might grab a seat until 730 unless someone else here as well :):)

      I'm hoping you walk fast. The event ends at 9pm so we're not going to be much longer.

    Sorry for dropping out... I got something else going on later on Friday, and I'm not sure how long I'd be able to hang out. Hope you guys manage to have some fun without me!

    Are we going to meet at a certain area? I'd to buy a ticket and not be able to find the group.

      Since I don't know the layout of the event I will try to stay close to the ticket area. I'm pretty hard to miss and will probably come up and ask you if you're with meetup if you seem lost. Of course I don't plan to stand at the ticket area all night so arriving right on time is helpful! :):)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
