Price? Cheap. Like FREE, or maybe a Diet Coke at a GG!

March Geek Gather


Time for the March Geek Gather. Sadly, I won’t be able to make it, and I believe Patrick will be out of town as well. Therefore, I have no opinion on where to hold it.

  • Geek Gather
  • 6:30pm
  • Tuesday 2009.03.10
  • TBD

Who wants to go where and I’ll be happy to update the announcement accordingly.

P.S. if you follow @geekgather on Twitter, you can see these announcements and notifications of new posts on the blog.

That is all.
