    The meetup tonight is located at 225 Bush Street, West Lobby, 11th Floor. Please use the West Lobby entrance (on Bush Street, near the parking garage). We will have someone posted at that entrance to let you in the building from about 5:45 - 6:15pm. If you arrive late, the East Lobby is the after hours entrance. We've given the security desk the attendee list, so you can sign in with a photo ID. You will then need to take the elevator to the 3rd floor, walk across to the west side of the building, then continue on to the 11th floor. Again, this is only if you arrive late (after 6:15 pm). Otherwise, please use the West Lobby entrance and you can just go straight up.
