Shut Up and Write! East Bay (Alameda) Marathon

  • May 20, 2014 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

With the change of seasons, it seems like it's time to change cafes as well, and we're moving things indoors for the cooler months.

High Street Station Cafe (corner of High Street and Encinal Avenue) is a comfortable little spot with good coffee and a menu packed with salads, sandwiches, baked goods, and (should the writing wheel need a little greasing) wine and beer. There are lots of tables and comfortable chairs, and a couple couches as well. There's free Wi-Fi (with purchase--patronizing whatever cafe we occupy is strongly encouraged!) and enough electrical outlets for the laptops.

We'll officially start at noon (come whenever you can) and break at 2:00 p.m. for a brief check-in, then officially wrap up at 4:00. You can stay on and keep writing if you're on a roll. The cafe is open until 7:00, but on Tuesdays they host a charity dinner at 5:30 so you'd need to clear out by then. 

Come check out this new Shut Up & Write venue!

(This replaces the Shut Up & Write sessions that have been taking place on Tuesday afternoons at Julie's. The patio was getting too loud and cold!)

    Well, my quest for a (local) replacement power cord came up empty. That leaves me without a functioning laptop and working on paper isn't going to cut it today. Apologies for my absence to all who came today but I'll definitely be back there next Tuesday and hope to see you then. I hope you're having a productive afternoon!

    It looks like I'll be arriving late. I'm in search of a new power cord for my laptop; otherwise, I'll have to go back to paper and pen! Hope you all get lots of writing done and I'll see you at the 2:00 check-in.
