General Meeting 3/15/2010

We’ll be having our first General Meeting at our new location on 1684 Quincy this coming Monday.  Topics of discussion are on the agenda, which you can review and edit here.  The minutes from the last meeting should be up soon here.

After the meeting, we’ll be heading to Two Brother’s Brewing Company to celebrate the new space and our successful move-in.  You can subscribe to the event at Plancast.

Two Brothers Brewery Tour

When I first arrived at the brewery, I actually passed it up. It’s a very unassuming industrial building with a little silo on the side. If you didn’t know where to look for it, you might never know it’s there. Continuing the trend of unassuming, the door itself into the “Tap House” restaurant is just a single door that looks almost like a side entrance, with a little sign that says “Two Brothers Tap House Main Entrance.” Once you step through that door, you know you’re in the right place. You’ve been transported into a modern bar and restaurant who’s food and beer rival’s that of anywhere I’ve been in the suburbs. Everything in this building has been finely crafted, from the food to the beer to the environment. It’s obvious they take great pride in it all.

Lunch/Brewery Tour/Good Times

Picture 008

We’ll be meeting at Two Brothers Brewing Company this coming Saturday (12/19) at 2:30PM for a brewery tour.  This’ll be our second Workshop 88 outing, and, from what I’ve been told by Russ, should be quite the scientific (and awesome) experience.  We’ll have lunch beforehand at 1PM if anyone wants to join the pre-gaming festivities.

In other news, the Workshop 88 beta blog is up and running here.  Please drop by and leave suggestions (maybe in the comments of this post?) on what you think, and what improvements we can make.  Look for the design to be implemented within the next week or so.

Finally, for the holidays, Workshop 88 will be doing a (sort of) last minute impromptu Toys for Tots collection — we’re calling it 70y5 4 7075.  So if you want to bring toys to our next meeting (preferably of the maker-oriented kind!)  on 12/21, feel free!  I know I’ll be hitting the stores for Legos and K’nex.
