Ladies and Gentlemen -
According to meetup.com
, we are focusing on finding a place that serves food and beer. Well, I don't have a solution for that. However, I may have a solution for a place that has a projection screen, a whiteboard immediately to its right, and food and drink could at least be consumed. Unfortunately, there isn't a cook or wait staff.
To be more specific, nFrame has a room on the 2nd floor of the 550 Congressional Boulevard building (in Carmel) that will comfortably seat 12-16 people with laptops (at tables, with office chairs). We could probably squeeze 20, and maybe even a few more, but it would be less than comfortable. There's a mini-fridge and a couple coffee makers, as well. I haven't discussed this with the man who would make the ultimate decision, and there are a few details that need to be addressed, but I would expect to get it worked out before next month without too extreme an effort.
If that room is not suitable, there is also a conference room on the first floor that has a large table that would seat 12, but the room is larger and could probably fit more people overall. It does have a projection screen, I believe. I couldn't get in to get a good look at the room, as there was a meeting in there when I went to check it out. It is near a room that has snack machines (although, those machines would be available to us regardless of which room we choose).
The first question on my mind is: how many of you would pass on a meeting in Carmel, versus downtown or Broad Ripple? I wouldn't want us to leave anyone out.
The last couple meetings haven't been too large. However, I've only been to the last two -- I have no sense of the history of the group. Are either of these two rooms going to be too small? At best I see them as a stop-gap until we can find a more permanent solution, in any case, but, again, I wouldn't want to immediately leave anyone out, or make the meetings so uncomfortable as to discourage future attendance.
What do you think? Would it be better to search for a different solution all together? Does one room sound more suitable than the other?
