Yeah, let's get some donuts! I think either Wednesday or Thursday work equally well for me. You wouldn't happen to still be around on Saturday, would you?

Has the massive new location on Morrison opened yet? I thought the opening was supposed to happen last month, but their website still says Washington.

Y'know, Blue Star is right around the corner from Cacao, which has the most amazing $2 shots of drinking chocolate....

Looks like the time is official- 8 am, Thursday! Ha ha, I'm going to set my alarm and get up early so I can go downtown and eat donuts with you people!

I shall do my best to wake up and come have donuts.

Gah, I just walked past and that blue star is closed for rennovations. I'll posit that the Blue Star on N Mississippi is open and a fine place to meet. Updating the loc.

I was just at the Mississippi one a few days ago, it’s open and good for meeting at!

Looks easily doable by bus, so I'll be there.

tl;dr original location is correct. switching back.

you know when someone sets a venue, gets new information, changes it, and then realizes the new information was incorrect?

it's back to downtown. 1237 SW Washington St.

so the deal: i thought i'd scouted this loc but actually came upon a *different* blue star a block or so away that i'd done a previous meetup at. Feh, I said, my favorite blue star is closed.

it is not. the new location was just a block or so further.

Also, if you want to try to connect at the conf, let me know. I have no particular plans outside of conf itself, so happy to hang out.

New boss, same as the old boss. Doughnut. Location. Whatever. Glad you checked, I haven’t been to the downtown one in a while!

That’s very close to my hotel. I’ll be there unless I have overslept ;)

I’ve never been to an IRL before, I’ll be the one wearing the grey Monterrey Bay T-shirt 😁

Cortex and I should be there in about 15-20 minutes.

@cortex did you post the photo somewhere or can you post a link here when you do?
