Well it was a great problem for the Starlite to have... 25 some-odd people coming in and taking over on a boring old Wednesday night. In hindsight, I guess I should have called to warn them, but oh well. :)
This place was really, REALLY neat and we got a great group of folks. This is a perfect example of why and how meetin works. Friends bring friends and by the end of the night EVERYONE is friends. One person commented to me that she came because Dina told her about it... and that she's lived here all of her life, but doesn't seem to have a lot of friends these days. When I asked her why, she said that people move on with their lives, they move away, etc. So while she has a lot of long-distance friends, she doesn't have a lot of people here, close by. Well, she came to the right place!
So many people showed up that I can't name everyone off the top of my head, and I know I've totally forgotten the names of a few of the people who were friends of friends... so if you see where I've missed someone in the naming process, please feel free to correct me. I definitely do not want to leave anyone out.
Thanks to everyone that came out. I hope you all had a great time and I look forward to seeing all of my new friends :) at another event soon!
