The following note confirms that we could hold our future meetings at the
SpeakEasy cafe, in downtown Seattle.  I figure this would be an extremely
popular option for those working in the downtown area, and an extremely
unpopular option for everybody else.

So, those (10%) of you on this list who actually attend our meetings,
what do you think?  And more importantly, can you offer us another
more suitable meeting place, or a suggestion where we could find one?

P.S.  Although we won't necessarily be able to get a location with
all the attributes we might want, we don't need to make an immediate
decision until 1/2000 anyway, so we might as well keep hoping and looking!



Minimum Requirements:
	easy highway access
	accommodation for up to 25 persons
	central to high-tech work locations

	free access to meeting room (no escorts)
	Overhead Projector & Screen

Even Better:

	comfy chairs

Pie in the Sky:
	Free Beer
	Hot Tubs
	Free shuttle service to Rooftop Heli-Pad
