Now taking location ideas!
Our first meetup of the month is usually at Amelie's, but that place is always super crowded. So I'm trying something new this month: I'm taking suggestions, with Amelie's as a back-up plan.
Have an area of town you'd like us to visit? Have a favorite coffeeshop/bakery/bar/restaurant you think would be perfect for hanging out in? Leave a comment below, or use Meetup's "Suggest a Place" feature. Any suggestions we don't use this month we may feature in the future!
Just keep in mind:
• it should have room to accommodate a medium-to-large group
• where they won't mind us sitting around for several hours
• that's quiet enough where we can talk, but not so quiet that we'd be disturbing other patrons
I like to use these meetups to support local small businesses whenever possible, but chains are not out of the question. I also like to keep these at public places, rather than someone's house so new members feel more welcome to drop by.
