Western Massachusetts SSC meetup #15post by a_lieb · 2019-08-22T00:53:41.618Z · ? · GW · None comments
We are an established meetup that has been going since the 2018 "Meetups Everywhere" thread. We've often been listed on the open thread by SamChevre, but this is only the second time we've listed ourselves here. If you email me, I can add you to the email thread where we plan future meetings—or feel free to just show up!
We have a pretty healthy crowd of attendees for the size of the area, with about 4-7 folks typically turning up out of a pool of about 10 that has been slowly growing as people find us through the open thread. Most people are local, but folks come from as far as Connecticut or NH.
The group meets roughly every two weeks. Typically we meet on a Friday or Saturday evening at 6 or 6:30, but we're very much still experimenting and are open to other days.
There's no "format" or suggested readings. Although it's not rare for us to touch on SSC articles and related topics, the conversation varies wildly, and you are welcome even if you're the most occasional SSC reader.
This meetup is at our default spot of Packard's Bar and Restaurant in Northampton, in the "library room" (go all the way to the back and take a right).
We meet at Packard's whenever we're able to reserve the library room, which is at least 3/4 of the time. There are a couple of backup spots. But the meetup location will always be noted in this post as well as in the email thread.
Hope to see you there!
