Looking for Office Hours venue: once a week, every 1-2 weeks, Tues-Thurs evenings

Hi everyone,

I am Gloria. I ran the NYC Python Meetup for 2+ years. I am now on 
assignment in DC for the next year, and I was hoping to establish Office 
Hours here, similar to how it runs in NYC.

I established this in NYC many months ago, and it is still going strong. 
We meet weekly, and give 45 minute talks in a tiny conference room, as 
well as help attendees with any questions from system admin to setup of 
dev environments, language syntax and semantics, best practices, and the 
list goes on (not strictly Python). It has also led to resume review, 
weekend study groups, and matching employers willing to hire new 
developers for a fair rate with skilled new developers. It has become 
the go-to place for Python community support in NYC, and it's also a lot 
of fun.

The rules in NYC are very strict regarding company marketing and 
recruiter attendance. Developers simply do not want to be bombarded with 
marketing or recruiting material/requests when attending casual events 
such as these. I hope to establish the same here, so that developers 
have a place to relax and learn with peers.

I am looking for space for this recurring event. In exchange, you'd get 
to attend weekly tech talks, get continuous help on any tech issues you 
may be stuck on, and your company name would be mentioned regularly in 
Meetup announcements. Plus, you'd be giving back to our community in a 
huge way. Please contact me if interested.

Here is the NYC Office Hours event page, for reference: 

Thank you,
