    Definitely appreciate the time and effort you folks put into getting this together. Unfortunately, the venue was way too small and cramped for the amount of attendees. It made it very hard to communicate, network and mingle with multiple people and the noise level was so high as to make conversation nearly impossible. Perhaps next time limit the number of attendees or choose a less noisy environment. I wouldn't be averse to paying a cover charge/ticket fee to have a invitee only event where we don't have to share space with the regular bar crowd to make it easier to communicate.

      Alison, I did the same. It was my first ever WordPress or MeetUp event, and I turned around immediately after signing in. I got there at 7 after fighting Gandy traffic for an hour and was very disappointed. Maybe a different kind of meetup is more my style? Oh well.

      Sylvia, thanks so much for replying in here. I was hoping it didn't come across negative because I was hoping to be constructive. It was more about once you got into the back area where most people congregated, it wasn't easy to get back out. A more open bar space (or an outdoor one) might make that a little easier to navigate.

    I enjoyed the event very much. It was a good mix of people, and I look forward to coming out again. The space was confusing, giving the appearance of being reserved for the group (and forming a boundary), and it did get uncomfortably crowded. I am glad I stuck it out though! I wouldn't try to limit the head count, just adjust the kind of space in which we meet next to something a little more open. My only other suggestion would be pushing the time past 5:30, as traffic is often quite bad.

    oopss...I'm purely entrepreneur and largely a techie so I said I would be there but I don't fit the requirements. Miss it. Have fun.
