Let's hang out at Freetail for a while. I haven't been in well over a year, though I always enjoyed the place. It's just somewhat out of the way for me, and I haven't had a reason to go, so here's one.
Also, I figure a meeting such as this is perhaps more accessible to some members since it's in a different location and it's only a social event. Fear not my timid SAGE's, no actual game development will take place at this venue.
