New time; new rules:
The writing portion of this Meetup will start promptly at 1:45. Starting the writing hour on time has been a problem in the past.
This place can be crowded, so you need to arrive between 1:00 and 1:15 to stand in line, get your order in, and get situated so we can begin socializing promptly at 1:30.
1:30-1:45: Introduce yourself, nibble on a snack, sip on a drink and socialize.
1:45-2:45: Shut Up and Write!
2:45: Write some more or leave if you want.
On-street parking in downtown Redwood City is free on Sundays.
