Additional details

For #cmSerendipity this month, we’ll be meeting in the Grass Garden Inversion on Cherry Street! We’ll be in the shade this time, thankfully. Parking is available at several Republic lots in the area, as well as on streets scattered around the surrounding blocks.

But on a much bigger note: this month is our 1 YEAR BIRTHDAY! Someone told us birthdays are parties you throw for all your friends and they’re not actually about us at all, and, well, nobody’s bothered to correct us yet. So—Friday, we celebrate! Can’t wait to see you all.
