Confirming Details for Next Wed, Nov. 15 Atlanta and Monday Nov. 20 Birmingham Meetups

Looking very much forward to meeting readers in the South (although some have made the trek to meetups in the North). Participants in past meetups have enjoyed the lively discussions with other members of the Cfdtrade community, so come and get to know some like-minded people!

For Atlanta, we will be at Manuel’s Tavern. The reader responses suggest that we’ll have a relatively small group, probably 10 to 20, so a room isn’t as critical as with a bigger bunch. The big advantage of Manuel’s Tavern is they do not play music, so it’s a good spot for conversation. And management has set aside some tables in a corner, so that should help.

Atlanta Meetup

Time: Wednesday November 15, 5:00 to 8:00 PM (FYI these events usually go later)
Maunul’s Tavern
602 North Highland Avenue Northeast
Atlanta, GA 30307
(404) 525-3447

I’m flying into Atlanta that afternoon, and unless there is a mishap, I should have ample time to get to the meetup from the very start.

Birmingham Meetup

Time: Monday November 20, 5:00 to 8:00 PM
Grand Bohemian Hotel, which is opposite the Birmingham Zoo (the bar is on the top floor, next to the restaurant, Habitat and Feed; there are two entrances, so if you have not been here before, use the valet parking and ask the valet to point you to entrance that takes you the restaurant)
2655 Lane Park Road
Mountain Brook, AL 35223
(205) 414-0505

See y’all soon!

      I’m planning on being there! Don’t get freaked out if you see pictures of Bill and Hillary on the wall. Manuel’s Tavern has been a Democratic Party “hangout” since the ’50s. The Atlanta Contra Dance Group used to meet there from the 1980s to about 2006. There used to be a nice meeting room in the corner of the building called “The Bird’s Nest.” You would go up some stairs to get to the room.

    Aaarrggh! I have a meeting I must chair at 5:00 Wednesday. But Manuel’s is the very best place to have the meetup, historically and otherwise! Have fun and spread some friendly subversion, which Atlanta and the rest of the Empire State of the South desperately need.

      If you don’t get done too late and still have the energy, swing by! We had a small group in Philly and we ran until 9:30 PM. Or if Manuel’s is a bit out of your way, call over first.
