First item on the agenda is to finally get a bunch of us together for a drink. I've known many of you for years yet don't know most of you at all ... even the people I know. Thanks, internet!

Second. Yeah, it's cold. But I guess I'd rather be cold here than most places.

Although it would compromise my devotion to a life of hermitage, I could maybe get my shit together for a meet-up. I mean, I haven't been able to previously, but it could happen.

Cool, I can start thinking as more people pop in here and peep up. Food? Just drinks? Favored neighborhood or any restrictions?

Hopleaf dinner or in their back barroom could be fun.

I’m not drinking till February, so less of a chance I’ll go out anytime soon. Unless you want to do like some indoor skydiving.

They have food!

also, honestly, we can always just wait till February. It's not that far off.

OK, it's almost March: I say let's do this. Even though Hopleaf is a PIA for me, I think it's a good suggestion. That said, I'm happy to accommodate anyone that might not be drinking by picking a food-with-beer place over a beer-with-food place, perhaps something like Spacca Napoli or Coalfire. Open for suggestions and/or people throwing out dates.

i am super busy in march -- got work stuff, a trip, a gong bath to attend
if we aimed for april i think we might get better turnout too

April. Weekday or weekend?

Pretty much any time in April sounds good, bar whatever night the Afghan Whigs are playing.

Maybe the weekend of April 14/15. Afternoon to early evening works the best for me. Will think about venue.

Primaries today. Consider voting. Or not if you don't like any of the candidates.

this was the first year that i took the time to do some basic research on the options for circuit judges.

I learned (from one of the judges running) that apparently the circuit (or sub circuit) you are running for ultimately does not have a direct bearing on where the chief judge assigns you.

I did a lot of research. It seemed like this year there were a lot more voting guides, compilations of resources, etc than I’ve seen in previous years. Like 2 years ago, it would have been hard to find any information on metropolitan water reclamation district candidates, but relatively easy this year.
