Drink Beer and Learn Lockpicking: Wed, Jan 8

The Reddit monthly beer and lockpicking class will be this Wednesday, January 8th, 6:30 at The Boardroom in Dupont (1737 Connecticut), as usual.

If you've ever been interested in picking up the skill (security folks, mechanically inclined, mechanically dis-inclined, looking to up your geek cred, secretly want to be James Bond, whatever), now's your chance.

I will have all the materials you need to get started or, if you've tried in the past, I can help you pick up where you left off. No experience necessary, and feel free to bring a friend.

I'll be there for a couple of hours or so. Happy hour prices until 7:00. We'll be at the upstairs bar. I'm Preston, I'll be the guy with the dark beer and a toolbox of locks.

New for 2014: Due to the overwhelming response, we're going to put a modest cap on the number of attendees to make sure everyone gets plenty of hands-on time 1-on-1 help. First 20 meetup RSVP's are in. Don't worry if you can't make this month's meetup, there's always next month. If you want to get on the list for next time, just email toool-dc+[masked] to get notified first.

    I'm coming, but it's +2, not +1. Just wanted to give you guys the head's up!

      Regrettably, I won't be able to make it, nor will my +2. Next month, perhaps.

    I'll bring the weird old china cabinet lock that I successfully picked. :)

      Great! That'll be fun. Yes, any show-and-tell locks are always welcome.
