December 1, 2018 – Garnsey-Turk-Steele
Mellow Mug Closing Update – I spoke with Matt on Saturday. He is not sure when the last day is going to be, but apparently soon. No earlier that December 8th. I propose that after the closing, we try several different options on a rotating weekly basis, then have a vote to decide where our new meeting place will be. Stay tuned for updates.
