When all is said and done, scheduling may be my all-time least favorite activity. Ok, not really, but it’s close. Case in point: this month’s Denver Tech Meetup. Many of you have been kind enough to check in with your availability via comments and IM, but as near as I can determine everyone’s available on different days. So my options are: a.) pick a day and see if a quorum – read: two or more of you – can make it, or b.) push until next month.
While I was leaning towards option B, given the fact that I’ll (in theory) only be in Denver for another two months before I head back East for the summer, I feel compelled to cram as many Tech Meetups in as we can.
So for now let’s plan on this Thursday, around 6 – 6:30 PM. I can’t do Tuesday any longer, and Wednesday’s a bad day for one of our regulars. Because of the way they treated a friend of mine, the Wazee Supper Club is out as our go-to venue. So let’s plan instead on meeting at My Brother’s Bar on 15th and Platte St (right next to the REI mothership and, conveniently, I-25).
For those of you unfamiliar with said establishment, it’s the oldest bar in Denver and very, well, old school. If you’ve lived in NYC before, My Brother’s Bar is sort of the Denver equivalent of the Corner Bistro – particularly when it comes to the food. It does have some parking, and it’s usually pretty simple to park along Platte St as well. One additional note: if you’re one of the folks eyeing The Hive co-op office space, this is a good opportunity for you to scout the local area (you’ll love the Vitamin Cottage grocery store, I promise), as My Brother’s Bar is directly across the intersection.
Do me a favor and let me know if you guys can make it, and I’ll see about getting us some space over there. Maybe, if we’re lucky, on the excellent patio out back, assuming the weather holds up. Hope to see as many of you as possible for a good warmup to the St. Patrick’s Day main event.
