    What a great, social night! Thanks so much to each of you that came along. I really enjoyed assessing each venue, Joe and Kim C were both especially observent :) And I think we've found ourselves a venue, so goals achieved!

    But most of all it was really fun getting out together and catching up outside the cafe environment. I think we have a fantastic community growing, hey?
