Geek Gathering – Friday, January 6

We will be meeting at our regular hangout, Khon’s Wine Darts And Coffee located at 2808 Milam.

There’s plenty of free parking and Khon’s offers a great beer and wine selection with many dining options nearby.

The event starts around 7:30 and goes until ?

You don’t have to be a geek to attend. Heck, you don’t even have to be a current listener of the show. This event is a casual meet-up for anyone interested in technology or social media in all its forms and a great opportunity to just hang out with like minded individuals.

There is no need to RSVP, but if you have a Facebook account you can let us know you’re coming at the Facebook Event Page
