And we might as well start off with an Expansion Update:* in short, there is now a giant stupid wall going across our lobby. Remember how some people used to get irritated about having to walk across our lobby to use the bathroom? Well those people are not in for the best of times, because now you have to go outside (and then, preferably, back inside) in order to relieve yourself, which is really a stunning display of the kind of coordination and/or communication we've come to expect from having work done in this building. The details of how/why this came to be are honestly unimportant (suffice to say, it's related to the assertion - from the people doing the work - that everything can and will be done in two weeks. We're a week past the time that assertion was being made, and the drywall is still only 70% complete), but it's worth mentioning that this will be our reality for longer than you might think is reasonable. If we're in the same place next winter (which we're not ruling out) we'll have to just Kool-Aid-Man through the wall or something so we don't have to do this for more than one winter, but for the time being we pretty much just have to roll with it whether we like it or not (we don't, if that wasn't obvious).
But anyway, you didn't come here to here us gripe about things that are frustrating and/or lament the loss of signage, you came here to hear about all the cool stuff we're doin', so cool stuff we shall!
Anyway, moving on to early next week, we've got Sip & Script in the house with a calligraphy class on Monday and then we're hosting an MCU trivia night on Thursday (and Seabiscuit will be here slingin' pies) that definitely won't involve a bunch of nerds (which could include you!) schooling Matt on Marvel trivia and anyway the point is that we've also got fun times lined up for future times, so you should probably clear your calendar and grab a stool!
