I’m hosting a potluck dinner this Saturday September 14th in East Palo Alto. Anyone want to come over? Bring something to eat, drink, or cook. I will cook some vegetables, chicken, and pasta.

In the afternoon before dinner will be “hack time” where you can code or work on your laptop while hanging out with us.

After dinner we will hang out a little bit.

PM me for more details.

I bet there are a lot of Blind users in the Bay Area so I thought I would extend an invite.

-DrCool, (not actually a doctor, just a stupid name I picked for this app)

      It’s not. I’m not religious or spiritual.

    Fascinating. Possibly the first post I've seen that shouldn't require TC/YOE.

    OP: Is this a religious thing? Be honest.

      No. I am not religious or spiritual.

      But when I went to church as a kid it was a great network of people. And I want to make new friends and help others make friends. Many people in the Bay Area didn’t grow up here, myself included.

      Uh, it’s usually more like talking or playing pool. But sometimes we play board games. If you have a cool board game you can bring it.

    Do you know how many people in blind can read your post? What if everyone shows up?

      There is a good chance that no one from Blind will show up. No one has DM’d me asking for the address.

      I’m expecting like 15 people to show up at the dinner overall.

      I would say No. But you could argue that any party that any one throws is a social experiment.

      I do it because hosting dinner parties is one of my favorite things to do for fun.

      There will be a few other girls there, I promise. I have a good number of friends that are women.

    It's not a religious thing. So, my hat is off to you, OP.
