Shut Up & Write! 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 table.

There is no dedicated organizer for this event so each attending member can help by printing out a tabletop sign (from the More/Files menu at the top of our web page) and bringing it each week.

    Hi Guys,

    Dunno how it happened but I'll be event host tomorrow. I'll try to get there very early and reserve a large table upstairs. I printed a few signs and will have them displayed prominently!

    See you tomorrow!

      John, as a person who has spent a few Sundays at the Red Rock fretting over the lack of open tables, I can say it is a good strategy to simply be patient and wait. The turnover is pretty high, and at least for me, tables always seemed to appear when needed.

      Oh yes, I am the person in the cloud who selected you randomly to be the host for this week.
