Our bi-weekly Dollop Sunday coffee will continue with appropriate distancing per current official guidelines. There's an area down the block and around the corner from Dollop where we can gather while spaced apart. We will continue this format for Sunday coffee until guidelines allow us to return to our regular format. We will also continue with virtual coffees on alternating weeks, so feel free to join us there instead if this format doesn't work well for you. You can stop by Dollop and order drinks with the Ritual app first, or just bring your own if that's too much work. You will need a mask to enter Dollop to pick up your order. After you get coffee, come meet up on the school steps on Marine Drive between Bittersweet and Gordon Terrace. If it ends up raining, there's a large space under cover with benches and concrete planters as well. After getting your coffee, walk east on Gordon Terrace to the end (Marine Drive) and turn right and go another 400 feet or so. Hope to see you there! :)

Hi everyone. I thought it would be fun to give folks a chance to hang out in person with some movie chat over dinner. The street next to Replay Andersonville is blocked off and they are following strict guidelines to keep everyone safe. I'm keeping it to a small group over safety concerns. Replay has a fun atmosphere and features a great bar food menu and excellent drinks. The staff is ensuring that everyone follows mask rules for city restaurants. They don't take reservations, but the wait shoud not be that long for a table. Cheers.
***please keep RSVP updated*** ***please have picture of yourself on your profile*** ***link will be sent to confirmed RSVP list shortly before start*** Until we can fully transition back to our regular Dollop coffees, we'll continue a combination of virtual coffees and outside physically distant coffees. We'll alternate weeks and this bi-weekly series will be the virtuals. We will be using the Zoom platform (https://zoom.us) for these. To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all, we do need to take some extra steps to keep the Zoom meeting secure. 1) Please have your own picture on your profile. We need to be able to match up the video feed with the member. 2) Please RSVP by 8AM the morning of the coffee. Link will be sent to the confirmed RSVP list shortly after that time. 3) Please keep your RSVP updated. Because we can only have one conversation at a time with the Zoom platform, we will have to limit it about 8-10 people. Please make sure you are subscribed to organizer messages to receive the link.
