Hi All, I just want to give a little press to a new venue. We had it at the Panera in Morristown, NJ. I made it to this new venue and was really glad I did. I mostly chatted with Dave Rutan over coffee and he helped me get over my fear of starting to speak Esperanto.

This venue seems to be good. It's centrally located in Northern NJ, right by I-287 and a train station. They have a lot of room and if we eventually grow into a very large group we can reserve their back area. I'm hoping that we can do four meetings a year.

Is there anyone else interested in this?

We'll be glad to have you at the next meeting. I'm not even halfway finished with the tree and still had a good time.

Cool to hear your experience! I just found out there is a meet-up in Atlanta in June, so maybe I'll try to go to that one.

If you are only meeting four times a year, maybe it could be a road trip destination.

You still can make it. See Dave's link for future announcements. It would be cool to paroli kun vi super kafo ;) (Mi esperas ke sonas amuzan en Esperanto)
