New Meetup: December Social: The Rose and Crown

From: Naomi M.
Sent on: Thursday, December 3, 2009 3:17 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Bay Area Seasteading Socials!

What: December Social: The Rose and Crown

When: December 14,[masked]:45 PM

The Rose & Crown English Food & Ale House
547 Emerson St
Palo Alto, CA 94301

This month, it's the Peninsula's turn for a meetup, and we're returning to url=]The Rose and Crown[/url] in downtown Palo Alto for a few rounds of drinks and discussion.

That's all! Eat, drink, and be merry -- we expect nothing more and nothing less. :)

Useless fact! Did you know that "the rose" and "the crown" are both well-known knots? The former is largely decorative, and the latter is a neat way of tying off an end:

The Crown (animated help)

Somewhat useful application of above fact! ...if you like beverages and are good at knots:

On the heels of the success of the knot-tying workshop this past Sunday, I (Naomi) am offering a free drink at the December Seasteading Social on the Peninsula (event announcement soon) to the first person who demonstrates that he or she can create a "rose and crown" (the tail of the crown gives you a stem) from original knotwork.

Give it a try! I'll be really impressed if you can do the rose, and if you can get that far, the crown's a cinch!

Hope to see you here in downtown Palo Alto on Dec 14th!


Ps. We've updated the Seasteading social networks page! Lots of new choices for keeping up with our news and events, including a shared Google calendar with all of our events, lectures, and workshops.
