Ok, time to put up or shut up, methinks.
I don't see any other reason (outside of time constraints & previous commitments) not to have the first NW meet in downtown Seattle. Any time, any weekend, just as long as it's soon.
We could hold it at any one of three places, as I see it. Seattle Center, the Waterfront (ferry terminal, Pier 70, the Edgewater Inn, The Aquarium, etc.), or maybe Pioneer Square. We should definitely avoid Pike Place Market and the original Starbucks as that's just bad crazy crowded. Always.
Personally, I would tend to lean towards the Seattle Center, because we would just HAVE to go to the EMP as a group, too. Including the Science Center would be cool also.
Critical mass would be 3 people, I guess, this being the first meeting. Just pick a place to meet and a time, and I'm there.
I might suggest nailing down the date for sure maybe in a general way, and then confirming on Wed. or Thurs.
Ok, ideas? Thoughts? I'm hoping that confirming just a couple days ahead of time will lead to DRY weather, because rain would confine us to inside (Center House, EMP, Science Center, etc..) Rain and boomboxes do NOT mix. EMP schedule is here www.empmuseum.org , while the Science Center info is here www.pacificsciencecenter.org .
What do you think?
