Apologies for the short notice on this…
The monthly “meet-up” for Upper West Siders who work from home that I’ve often posted about is trying something new today: A second monthly gathering, and the first time it’s being done on a Friday.
The event is organized by MUW reader @wiljr.
I’ve previously written the meetings are 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, it’s actually 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.
The action goes down at The Village Pourhouse (982 Amsterdam, between 108th & 109th) from about 3:00 – 6:00 pm (and possibly later) today, Friday 7/27.
I wasn’t able to make it to the 7/11 gathering, but here’s the recap. Unfortunately, I’ve got another conflict today and will have to miss it again.
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.
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.
