About The Rendezvous:

Appetizers, Drinks, Fun, and Prizes!

Since we are at a speakeasy we decided we decided we should play cards! Decks for the first 25 people who want them to hang out and play. We will also be walking around taking photos of everyone. We're giving a way 2 AWS in Action books. There will be a limited bar tab and appetizers - so show up early! After the tab is used, people can still food and drinks from the venue.

Music! (Please support them with a few bucks in the tip jar)
