Reader meet-up: Starbucks. San Diego. Really soon!Posted by Donna Freedman on Sep 20, 2016 | 4 comments
Wednesday as in Wednesday, Sept. 21. As in “tomorrow.”
So here’s the scoop: At 5:30 p.m., one hour before the Money Meetup — a free event at the 2016 Financial Blogger Conference — I’ll be sitting in the Starbucks at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel/Marina. Y’all come!
A couple of readers have already let me know they signed up for the Money Meetup (which is free but does require advance registration) and that they’ll try to make the Surviving and Thriving meetup, too. Until a little while ago, I didn’t have a location to share.
And then I did have a location but got totally sidetracked. I found out that the hotel does have a Starbucks; an employee had told me by phone that there wasn’t one, which is a little mystifying. By the time this fact registered, I’d been sucked into conversations with other early arrivals.
FinCon-versations are like quicksand. You can’t escape just by yanking yourself out. Instead, you sort of have to throw yourself flat and inch out, little by little.
So here it is, almost 10:30 p.m. local time, and I’m just now providing a meeting spot. I’ll be at the coffee shop from 5:30 p.m. until a few minutes before the Money Meetup starts. Hope to see some local readers there.
