  1. Great presentations last night. Thanks so very much.

    M8RX is a decent venue for this. I assume that the overhead monitors, and AV are part of their bargain. Unfortunately, the beer selection is something I’d expect to see in a dive in Cayucas.

    Are there any thoughts about other venues? The Draughtsman in Goleta would be my first pick.

    • Hi Alan,
      Glad you enjoyed the event! Thanks for coming!
      Yes, the A/V and also the layout of the venue are critical. We had about 250 people this time, and I don’t think we could fit that many in another venue, especially if we want them to be able to see the stage and/or one of the screens (with the exception of SoHo which we’ve considered). Another consideration is location and parking availability. I think that’s not ideal for The Draughtsman.
      I will see if maybe we can get external beer providers to come to future events (might be complicated due to licensing issues, but we’ll see). Thanks for the feedback!
