It is with remorse that I must announce that we will no longer be
meeting at the Pizza Bistro. When I arrived for the Meetup last night, I
was informed that our recurring use of the meeting space was terminated.
Having been given no warning by the Bistro of this action, I have
canceled our future meetups until we can huddle and reconfigure our
I'd like to not act hastily in the search for a new meeting space. We've
always met in North Austin, and our regular First Monday meetings are
coordinated with the PHP & MySQL meetups. Therefore, those elements need
to remain in place. We've also done much better to stay out of the "bar
mentality", beer and food seem to be compatible with our membership.
I've received several suggestions, but I don't have an abundance of time
to visit them and negotiate an agreement. Also, I hope to keep the
meetings free, as they always have been. If anyone has suggestions,
please send them through the website, or post on the website bulletin
In summary, we've grown tremendously over the last few years. I hope the
trend will continue. I appreciate your patience as we negotiate this
bump in the road. Thank you very much.
