Good news, everyone! We’ve finally managed to acquire a place of our own. Thanks to everyone who has helped so far!
It’s hard saying goodbye to the Mercury Cafe, but now we have the keys to our own space, where soon we will be building, breaking, and reconstructing to our hearts’ content and in full compliance with zoning laws. We have a few more details to iron out before we can start a complete roll-out into the space, but we’re still accepting help. Anyone have a few spare tools?
The new space is at 3354 N. Elston. We have about 2200 sq. ft. in a warehouse that’s been recently renovated, with no current tenants other than the landlord himself, who’s a pretty cool guy. In addition to that, we will have communal access to the front lounge & waiting room, the very spacious garage, a kitchen, and shower facilities for when the dust settles. Our members are planning the design and layout with many ideas in mind, so if you have something to contribute, join the mailing list and have your voice heard!
For those of you as excited as we are, please attend the first meeting at 7pm this Tuesday, April 21st. Meetings are always free and open to the public, and we enjoy seeing new faces. We also won’t have the benefit of a kitchen behind us to keep us in food & drink, so bring something noshable if you’re feeling generous. And of course, keep an eyes peeled for news regarding a move-in party!
