Hey folks, thanks all who participated in the doodle poll. We seem to have critical mass to have the inaugural meet up of Seattle & Puget Sound Kossacks on Sat Feb 1, between noon and 3pm. Not everyone can make the whole time, so lets make it a casual meet up, and we can figure out what we are doing from there.

Based on conversations on the Google group (have you sent me your email address yet???) I believe something in Central or West Seattle would be best. Ideally it should be somewhere easy to get to from highways and transit. Fuel coffee in Montlake? Starbucks on Olive Way on Cap Hill? Easy street or Luna Park in West Sea? I need your help for suggestions!!! Please vote on some options in the poll, or add your own ideas in the comments. We should make a call by Mon or Tues at the latest.  Ideal factors include WIFI access, comfortable seating (for those of us who will hang out the whole time), coffee, food, alcohol?

But for now, please pencil in noon to 3pm on Sat Feb 1 for our inaugural meeting.

Tue Jan 28, 2014 at 12:56 PM PT: UPDATE: Although Pyramid and Luna park are tied, I'm going to make an executive decision and say lets go with Pyramid because it is closer to mass transit and easier to get to from a variety of highways.

So yes, it's a plan folks.  Noon on Saturday Feb 1st at Pyramid Brewery:  http://www.pyramidbrew.com/alehouses/seattle/

Pyramid Alehouse, Brewery & Restaurant
 1201 First Avenue South
 Seattle, WA 98134

Sat Feb 01, 2014 at 8:26 AM PT: Please this diary with the full event details to learn how to find us at the event and to RSVP.  See you later today!

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.
