Drink Beer and Learn Lockpicking: Wed, Feb 5

The Reddit monthly beer and lockpicking class will be this Wednesday, February 5th, 6:30 at The Boardroom in Dupont (1737 Connecticut), as usual.

New for February: Two talks!

Intro talk at 6:45 - If you're new, this is for you!

Advanced talk at 7:15 - Up your game with some deeper magic.

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 and several other awesome volunteer instructors 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.

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.

    Really fun meetup! Does anyone know where I can get the tools we used last night?

    Fun, casual. Instructors were great. Good happy hour. The bar was rather loud but I got the impression that was unusual. Will look forward to the next one!

    Turned away at the door - my daughter's not 21. A game place that is over 21? They might want to be a bit clearer about that.

      I'm very sorry that happened, George. We have an understanding with the bar owner for exactly this situation, but haven't taken advantage of it in some time, so the young woman at the door wasn't informed. You and your daughter are both welcome to join us next month, same time, same place, first Wednesday of the month, which will be March 5. If you wish to message me directly I will save you a spot without RSVPing.

      Yeah Brian (and anyone else on the waitlist), if you're available, we'll have room. Come on over.

      Sounds like a good time for a reminder on the rules of locksport: 1) Don't pick locks you don't own, and 2) Don't pick locks upon which you rely. But if you want to talk about the laws of lockpicking or the business of being a penetration tester (white hat burglar), we can totally do that!

    I'm out of town this month, but definitely interested in stopping by next month!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
