DLA Piper is hosting us in their amazing space in Mt. Washington that can handle 200 or more people, with plentiful parking, and convenient access for those that live outside the city. What more can you ask?

The DLA Piper building is in the Mt. Washington Conference Center campus (up the hill), and it is a totally amazing building. Check it out:

To get to the venue, use the Smith street entrance (and not the entrance that weaves its way through the Mt. Washington Conference Center). See below map for detail.

Parking is plentiful and there's a lot right next to the building, with plenty of room for all attendees. And it's free. What can be better? One favor, tho -- leave the few visitor spots that are right in front of the building available for the use of the offices. They have some elderly clients who aren't able to walk up the walkway to the building. The lot is really big and very close so you shouldn't need those spots anyways.

Public Transportation

The Mt. Washington campus is located very conveniently near the Light Rail stop, which is literally just down the hill from the venue. Get off at the Mt. Washington Light Rail station, and then climb the steps to the Octagon Building at Mt. Washington and from there you can get to the DLA Piper building. It's a 15-20 minute walk at most.

There are also shuttles from the JHU Homewood and JHMI campuses right to the Mt. Washington Conference center, including one that leaves at 7:40AM from Homewood getting in by 8AM, and leaving at 9:35AM to return to Homewood. Very convenient.

Want to present at a showcase?

Have something you've been working on that you'd like some feedback on? Have something that you'd like to share? Have a kernel of an idea that you'd like some thoughts on developing further? Just leave a comment for us below or send a message to the organizers and we'll get you scheduled for an upcoming BTB. If this one is filled up, don't despair - we want you at our next one! Sign up for that one too.

See you all there!

    Sorry I missed it. Let's just say Google Maps' directions left something to be desired.
