A special announcement from Bob, Organizer of The
Philadelphia Art Meetup Group

Hello all,

I've missed a month or two but now I'm back and ready
for our next meetup. I was thinking about activities
and the most successful meetup so far was our First
Friday meetup
a few months ago. Everyone who attended had a great
time checking out
the galleries and we ended the night with a bite to
eat. I really
enjoyed it and I encourage anyone who missed the last
one to attend. I
don't think you will be disappointed. For those who
might not be
familiar with First Friday, a description of it is
pasted at the bottom
of this email.

Last time we met, we all gathered in front of the
Continental Restaurant
on the corner of 2nd and Market and  it worked out
well. While the
events kick off at 5:00 PM, that is a little early for
working people
and 7:00 PM seemed to work best last time so we'll use
that time for
this meetup too. You will find directions to
Continental pasted below as well.

Keep your fingers crossed that Spring makes an
appearance too and I look forward to meeting those who

Take care,
