I like the auditorium.  From my experience at GR.pm, I'd prefer to
maintain at least 3-4 of the more socially-oriented meetings per-year,
at a different venue.   The talk thing gets old after a while and it's
fun to just let the conversation wander like it does when we meet at

Web frameworks works for me.   The other topic I think would be neat
is ORM tools like Class::DBI, DBIx::Class, Rose::DB, etc..   The talk
we had last time was interesting, so another demonstration of Perl in
production would be great.
