    Thank you SO much for hosting this! I can't wait for more events in the future. Nice to meet you all. Since moving to Seattle last year I have been blown away at the wealth of knowledge here, and more importantly, how willing people are to connect and share. Happy Holidays!

    I just mistakenly showed up last night, so I cased the joint. Folks, the elevator ride alone is worth the price of admission. See you tonight!
