SU&W at Red Rock

Directions: From El Camino Real turn onto Castro St. toward downtown. From 101 take the Moffett Blvd exit and go toward downtown (Moffett becomes Castro). The Red Rock is on the corner of Castro and Villa. Parking can be challenging, but there are several lots behind the Castro businesses. Turn on Villa or Dana to access them. Enter the lots from either Hope or Bryant Streets (they run parallel to Castro).

This awesome coffee shop is near the end of Castro in downtown Mountain View, a block down from Books Inc. It has a cool bar and interior, (that incidentally was just redone) with photos and art that change periodically and a comfy upstairs. The coffee is good and they also have really good food and sweets that change. The baristas are really nice and the only ones who rival their latte art are the ones at the Bitter + Sweet in Cupertino.

The basic schedule would be for introductions and arrivals to happen between 1:30 and 1:45 pm. At 1:45 we start writing for at least an hour. You can stay longer if you want.

We generally meet upstairs on the second floor because it's so hard to guarantee seating at the single tables downstairs. Look for the sign(s). Might be displayed on a tablet.

    Last week members had trouble finding each other. It would really help if everyone would print out a table sign and put it in their bag or binder so you will always have it with you. Then if you can't find the group, you can just stake out a table and let others find you. The table sign can be accessed on the More/Files menu on our home page.

      I had a table sign on my 10inch tablet facing the entrance. It was pretty visible. But I left after an hour and a half, so that might be why people couldn't find the group. I'll try to print something out the next time I have access to a printer.

    I didn't set a limit on how many people could sign up for this event. I fear that the 12 who have already signed up may be a challenge for this venue which is historically crowded. I would appreciate some feedback to guide my thinking on limiting RSVPs for future meetups at this location.
