    That would be cool. I live near Renton, so I was thinking maybe we could meet on Mercer Island. FrankyandDoms.com is a great little coffee shop. Say 9 a.m?

    If anyone else wants to squeeze in an extra chat, they could come out too.

      Hello Jannette, hopefully we will see you in the next event! Re: coffee - saturday the 25th? I have some errands to run so I can drive out, but if you are in downtown I would love to meet!
