Location: Advertising.com on the Under Armor campus
Advertising.com has offered their space to us for our meetups, it's located in the Ivory Building.
The Ivory building is at the end of Haubert St in Locust Point. The area is served by the Charm City Circulator "Banner Route", as well as the MTA #1 bus. You can also take the water taxi over from Fells Point (landing #8) to landing #10. Note that the water taxi service ends at 7pm, and the Circulator ends at 8pm prior to May 1.
If you cycle to the meetup, feel free to bring your bike inside, or you can lock up on one of the racks just outside the building.
Sandwiches from Jimmy John's! Beverages include water, juice, tea and sometimes beer.
If you drive, park in one of the Green or Purple areas:
Green is designated visitor spaces, they are also marked "visitor" on the pavement. Do not park in 'reserved' or 'handicap' (unless you have a permit). Purple is the Under Armor employee lot, which is available for us to use as well. Interactive Google Map

We try to always have some vegetarian options available. Fruit and nuts are also available, ask Paris where the snacks are. If you need to refrigerate something, the white fridge in the back of the room is available.
