NEW LOCATION: Note that we are moving the meeting to the Alley Cat Coffee

   Dinner: Pickle Barrel on Laurel just west of College, 7pm.
   Meeting: Alley Cat Coffee Shop, In the Alley west of College and Laurel, 8pm

This Tuesday from 8pm to 11pm we will be having another installment of the
Hacking Society.  At 7pm we'll be gathering at a restaurant for dinner,
then heading over to the Alley Cat at 8pm for the main event.

We will be meeting for dinner at 7pm at the Pickle Barrel.  The Pickle
Barrel is on Laurel just west of College, right around the corner from
where the main meeting will be taking place.

The goal of the Hacking Society is to foster geek community-building
through the shared experience of hacking. Of course, by "hacking",
I mean the more historic meaning of working on interesting projects
(Jargon File "hack" entry, sense 6). Not the "script kiddies trying to
compromise boxes" meaning which has become what most people think of in
relation to the term.

It's meant to be a sacred place full of positive hacking energy, if you
will.  Hacking by osmosis...

Hacking Society is primarily meant for you to come and work on your own
projects, as opposed to soliciting others to solve your problems (which is
usually more what goes on at an Install Fest or at the main NCLUG
