This month’s “meet-up” for Upper West Siders who work from home will take place tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon.
Organized by MUW reader @wiljr, this will be the 10th monthly gathering on the Upper West Side.
I’ve previously written that they’re one-part “discuss the challenges and benefits of working from home” and one-part “get out your apartment and chill for a bit,” but after giving it some more thought, I’m ready to say it’s more like one-part discussion, five-parts relaxation.
There’s always useful professional information being shared by others there, but it’s also great opportunity to just get out and meet some interesting people from the neighborhood.
I wasn’t able to make it last month, but here’s the recap from the June meeting.
If you work from home and live in the neighborhood, stop by for a beer (or soda) and a break from the monotony of sitting at “the office” alone all day.
The action goes down at The Dead Poet (450 Amsterdam, between 81st & 82nd) from about 3:00 – 6:00 pm (and possibly later) on Wednesday, 7/11.
There’s no obligation to arrive by a certain hour or stay for any predefined length of time — it’s a pretty casual affair.
Wil put together a post on his site that includes a brief FAQ if you’d like to know more.
These gatherings have been getting larger each month and it’s pretty hard to miss the group in the back of the bar. However, if you get there early, Wil is easy to identify — just look for the guy with a copy of the Beastie Boys’ Check Your Head next to him.
