Commanding Chaos for Coworking, Open Source and Creative Communities

Sunday, Not Monday - Bonus Days

I am realizing a bit too late that if you have a monthly event, you need to standardize the date.

Any other dates/times/locations will inevitably be bonus events.

This month's Florida Creatives is in a different place on a different day - never again.

How does 3rd Monday at Crooked Bayou sound? We can build a relationship with that place, they seemed to like having us on a slow night. This means the next event is March 19th, right after St. Patty's Day.

There are a couple of Bonus Events coming up I want to discuss with people - one is Grandma Party. This is a one-day craft bazaar that is more than a bit bizarre. Hosted in April in the parking lot of Stardust, dozens of crafters, activists, musicians, videographers, art installationists, farmers, hair stylists, and lots of other -ists gather to hang out, eat soy dogs, drink lemonade, sell their wares and have fun.

I bought a booth for Florida Creatives to try and garner some support from the DIY community. Lots of people there participate in other initiatives like Assembly, and this will be our "coming out" to them. It would be interesting if we could leave some voicemails on the Grandma Party Hotline - 206.666.4.SEW - to show them we are supporting the event.

Later I would like to buy a booth for the Fringe Festival in May, but I don't have $325 in my back pocket, so I'd like to pass a collection plate.

I really liked crooked bayou, and I think building a relationship with a local business would be the way to go. I won't be able to make it out this month to the creatives meeting, and it annoys the heck out of me.

Let's catch up sometime soon and I'll toss into a collection plate... I'm leaving emurse spam all over the booth though.. ;)
