Starting at 6:30pm, we'll have free food. Our main meeting will start at 7pm, and will feature a short talk on Android Wearables, followed by Code Lab. Google has indicated a limited number of vouchers for physical devices may be available. More details when we get them.

Sorry this is an non standard week for us, but we were waiting on a slide deck from Google...
