    For anyone who wants to meet as a group: 10am upfront, with an an additional early pre-meeting coffee option (below).
    The main entrance is on the south side (Mt Vernon Pl) in the middle of the building
    Unless the original organizer changes this, I'll print a meetup sign.

    • Lenny

      Please see a message from Aubrey below about coffeee @9:30am.

      August 29

    • Lenny

      So now everybody has 2 options: coffee @9:30 and in front of the center @10am (will wait for 10-15 min) with a meetup sign.

    August 28

    • Skylar

      Are we meeting up as a group or are we all just going our own way? Personally I vote for the former.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
