Motor City Kossacks Banner

For the Motor City Kossacks who saw the group Kosmail I sent early this month, I'm happy to confirm our next official meet-up date, time, and place: Saturday, January 4, 2014, at noon at Sweetwater Tavern in Detroit. Please let me know in the comments below or via Kosmail whether you can attend. This meetup is open to significant others and children. Please feel free to make use of the group Kosmail to inquire about, or to offer, rides.

The second meetup requires a bit of explanation. Three of the Netroots Nation staff--Raven Brooks, Nolan Treadway, and Mary Rickles--will be in Michigan during the first full week of January talking to people across the state about plans for NN14. They have quite a full itinerary already, but they are willing to squeeze in a general get-together for folks who are already part of the NN14 Host Committee, and those who are willing to become active with the Host Committee. More specific information about what exactly that might entail will be shared as the time approaches.

Given their time constraints, it appears that the evening of Thursday, January 9th, in Ann Arbor, will be the best time and town for that meeting.  At the moment, the exact venue is yet to be determined; I'm happy to take nominations. So far, I've thought of Knight's Steakhouse or (the original) Cottage Inn, but these two are far from the only possibilities. We've tentatively set a time of 6:30 PM to try to accommodate those who might need to drive a distance after working a day job. Again, I hope that ridesharing can be arranged, either in the comment threads or via the group Kosmail.

I will continue to post a reminder of BOTH meetups with details accumulating up until the event. My apologies for the comparatively short notice. My holiday season was seriously complicated on even less notice, a story with an ultimately happy ending that I can share at the meetup with those who are curious.

I look forward to seeing many Motor City Kossacks at one or both events!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
