We have a private space downstairs. Enter the main doors, turn left, and down the stairs.
We’re working on a new downtown location for the regular monthly meetings of the meetup since we’ve outgrown the libraries. As we have not settled on a new location yet, this meeting will at the James Street Pub. We have a private space in the basement to keep the meeting separate from the regular bar patrons. (This will not be our regular location.)
No donations for this meeting! If attendees buy enough food etc. from the pub it covers our tab. (We normally ask for a $4 donation to help cover the cost of the room and our Meetup fees, which total about $450/year)
