First and foremost, we are happy to announce that this month's meetup is sponsored by Google+ (thanks, G+!), and therefore there WILL be FREE BOOZE at this meetup. Hooray for G+ the beer sponsor! (Actually, the free drinks will be glasses of Eiffel's house wine, rather than beer, but same net result. Free drinks for Net2NO members!)

Please note that we've decided to shake things up a bit, and this month's meetup will be at a NEW Bat Time, at a NEW Bat Place, but it's still on a Tuesday because we didn't want to shock you too much.

The August Net2NO meetup is from 5pm-8pm at Eiffel Society on St. Charles. (You know that giant, weird-looking building you've always wanted to go into, but never quite got around to it? Now's your chance!) There will be free wine for as long as our tab lasts, so get there early!

Parking shouldn't suck as much as it did over at 12 Bar; in fact, parking should be a breeze. There's a parking lot sort of under/behind Eiffel Society, and there's street parking all over the place because nothing is going on in that part of the Garden District early on a Tuesday evening.

Refer to the title of this event for our August meetup topic. Speakers and other presentation details will be available soon. We may or may not post them here, but feel free to check back just in case. The important thing is that you get your fine self out of the office and over to Eiffel Society for what promises to be our most interesting Net2NO meetup yet.

Other changes to note: doors open at 5pm, and the presentations will begin at 6:30pm. The program part will still be limited to an hour (6:30-7:30), and the rest of the meetup is all about drinking and mingling with all of your favorite Net2NO friends and total strangers.

TLDR: August Net2NO Meetup is 5-8pm at Eiffel Society. Free wine. Come Early. Bring friends. See you there!

P.S. Don't quote me on this, but rumor has it there may be FOOD available at this meetup! The Eiffel Society does have a chef and a kitchen, and they *may* offer a limited menu on Tuesday night, so you'll be able to purchase some nibbles to soak up that booze.

P.P.S. FYI: immediately following the Net2NO meetup, there will be a free Tango lesson, and then Tango dancing for the rest of the night. Apparently Tuesday night is Tango night at Eiffel Society, and they were kind enough to push their schedule back to accommodate us. So, if learning to Tango sounds like fun to you, plan to stick around and dance your pants off before you call it a night.

    I'll consider it, but generally I'm not that comfortable in a crowd (unless I'm on the stage with my guitar that is!) and don't drink alcohol. I'll definitely try and be there at leat for the meeting ... and afterwards, we'll see.

    We tango there every week! Y'all should stick around for it afterwards. There is lesson, as stated above. It's one of the easiest dances I know (it's just walking with a purpose and a partner). The lesson and dance are free, with a cash bar. See you all before tango ;)

    Would love it if folks posted ideas and actions on the Neighborland so that we can help out -
