    I was bummed when I missed out on the pizza and networking :( The chocolate foundation was okay and only got to hear one of the presentations. I almost wasn't let in too

      That was a shame but I came late so I expected that to go. Luckily the chocolate foundation was still there.

      Sorry! We'll be sure to get more food next time. Kristen: What trouble did you have getting in? We'll make sure it doesn't happen again.

    Thanks for hosting last night! There was a little echo in the room, but I had fun serving wine in the back ;)

    Last night had some fantastic speakers, but I was hoping that there would have been more networking and less of a clique-y environment.

    Looking forward to seeing other meetups from this group!

    I'm afraid I have to miss tonight's event. Are you planning another one soon?

    Want guests to bring anything?

    By the way, this meetup's sugary sweet description rocks so hard. :)

      Just bring yourself, maybe a friend or two. We'll be serving up the pizza and drinks.

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.
