From your host, boxed_light:
Hi Captain! Peregrinations got busy this week, so I’ll be hosting our next Bay Area meetup! I’m boxed_light on the forums. Here are the details:
San Francisco Bay Area Awkward Meetup!
When: Sunday, March 12 at 1 pm
Where: PIQ in Berkeley – UPSTAIRS is the plan!
91 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley, CA 94704 (Google Maps link below)
1.5 blocks from Downtown Berkeley BART station (on Fremont-Richmond and Richmond-Daly City/Millbrae lines)
What: Bay Area Awkwardeer meetup! Feel free to bring knitting, crafts, books, etc, or just yourself
About PIQ: PIQ is a bakery, cafe and pizzeria with a wide range of meat-based, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, and it looks like they have a couple salads for gluten-free folks as well. They have a big open floor plan with lots of seating and a reasonably quiet atmosphere (good for talking). We will ideally be on the second floor which is fully handicap accessible (there’s an elevator on the main floor). If we are not there, check the main floor, also fully accessible. Bike parking available, street parking for cars.
PIQ’s website: http://www.piqbakery.com/berkeley
How to find us:
I’ll be seated inside on the second floor, and will have small stuffed sabertooth cat with me. I’ve got brown and blue short hair as well, so I should be decently easy to spot. I will make a foldover sign saying “CA Meetup” to put on the table. Again if you don’t see me on the second floor (aka there wasn’t enough space), I’ll be on the first floor.
If you’re shy or nervous, feel free to bring a book or crafts so you can chat as little or as much as you wish! Last time we got some excellent crafting done during our hangout. ^_^
For more info:
Feel free to pm me on the forums (boxed_light), or leave a comment on the post, I’ll be monitoring them up til the event.
Hope to see you there!
