It’s Geek Beers tonight, 5pm – 8pm at Marten Brewpub. I’ve booked the long table. Hope to see you there!
Here’s a story:
When I moved to Vernon in 2012, my biggest worry is that I wouldn’t be able to find people who were interested in tech, business, design, the web, coding, remote working, blogging.
Then I met Kazia. She wanted to start an event called Geek Beers. We did the first one at Sir Winstons. A bunch of people came. Amazing people: a great variety of folks from different backgrounds, and with different skillsets.
It showed me that Vernon has one thing that many towns lack: awesome community.
We’ve never made Geek Beers super structured. You can’t sponsor a Geek Beers and give a boring sales presentation. It’s not about showing up “so you can hire a programmer.”
Geek Beers is about one thing: long-lasting building friendships. That’s it.
If you’re into that, you should come tonight!
Who: you, and anyone else who is into tech, entrepreneurship, creating stuff, or just making Vernon more awesome.
What: geek beers! We get together around a table, chat, hang out, eat, and drink.
When: Thursday, March 30th, from 5pm-8pm
Where: Station BBQ, Vernon, private room to the right
Optional: let us know you’re coming on Meetup.com
Ratio Coffee is offering a private party for Geek Beers next Thurs (5pm-8pm). They have three amazing beers on tap, plus some incredible cocktails (also availabe as virgin drinks).
PLUS: Chef Laurie is creating a special tapas menu for us. It includes: spanakapitas, spiced nuts, croquettes, mango chicken triangles, bacon wrapped dates with blue cheese, marinated manchego cheese with orange preserves.
This will be a nice, “quiet” place for us to chat, and enjoy some good brews and food. Prices on food and beer are very reasonable.
Space is limited, so you’ll need to pre-register for this one: RSVP here.
Come join us for #geekbeers!

On Thursday (October 27th, 2016), from 6pm-9pm we’ll be hanging out at Morgan’s place for a Halloween themed Geek Beers.
Costumes are encouraged! Doesn’t have to be crazy (if you have a wig, put it on).
(If this is your first event: normally we go to Marten Brewpub, but every once in a while we’ll do something special like this. We’ll hang out, eat some snacks, and drink some good beer.)
“I’ll make pulled pork, and there will be enough beer for everyone, but we encourage folks to introduce the group to their favorite beer”. So if you have a favorite beer, bring it along to share. 😉
What: Geeks, Beers, Halloween
When: Thurs, Oct 27, 6pm-9pm
Where: Morgan’s house (I’ll send the address when you RSVP)
Why: hanging out is fun
If you want to come, you need to RSVP! (similar to the pub, this is an adults only event)
