Hello! There are two meetups on the books.
1. From Wiley in Washington, DC:
I’m interested in doing a meetup for DC. I’ll be at Penn Social (http://pennsocialdc.com/) on October 11th at 7pm. There is a reasonable beer selection, snacks, and best of all, board and arcade games! Last time I was there I played dominoes and Skee ball. The upper level, which is wheelchair accessible (as is the entire bar), has long tables perfect for gaming and/or coloring and/or chatting. It’s very metro accessible, and reasonably priced. I’d love to meet DC Awkwardites of all stripes, but ESPECIALLY queer DCites.
2. And from Foxipher Jones in Seattle:
Hello, Seattle Awkwardeers!
I heard that the first Seattle Meetup was a hit, and I’m so glad to hear it. Some of us (including myself) could not make it, so another event or two are in the works, including this one!
On November 27th at 6:30pm, we have the two large tables reserved (20~ people since people tend to rotate in and out) at Wayward Coffeehouse, which is an all-ages geeky venue that serves organic coffee and vegetarian/vegan food, including tasty baked goods. (This is NOT Wayward Cafe, which is also a vegetarian place.) Wayward Coffeehouse is located at: 6417 Roosevelt Way NE #104Seattle, WA 98115
(the southwest corner of 65th & Roosevelt next to Ten Thousand Villages)
There is street parking on streets surrounding the venue, and it is within walking distance of the Greenlake Park & Ride as well as other bus stops. (http://metro.kingcounty.gov has bus schedules and a tripplanner). I will post closer to the event what to look for; Quartzpebble and I are planning to be there.
Please, as a favor to those of us with life-threatening allergies, do not bring nuts/peanuts to the Meetup, and please do not eat peanuts right before either, as I highly enjoy breathing.
I look forward to meeting you all.
Here’s what you do if you want to plan a meetup where you are.
