    As was said in a previous thread, my wife and I are visiting Boise this weekend persuant to a move. I've been in contact with a few Boise APUGgers and we've decided to meet to start a local "chapter".

    So, Saturday 4pm at Boise Darkroom and Supply on Fairview (I think - I don't live in Boise yet). I may be a little late (house hunting), but Tom (the owner) and John Moore will be there.

    Feel free to RSVP in this thread.

    See you Saturday.

    Never fails... there's a twist!

    So, it turns out that it's THIS weekend that Tom is going out of town!

    We can still meet there, since the shop will be open, and then go out for a brew... Or we can just meet up at one of our local watering holes.

    Sorry for the confusion!

    John

    Let's pick a restaurant or someplace else so we aren't keeping an employee past closing.

    Piper Pub & Grill

    How about the Piper Pub & Grill? It's in the heart of downtown, (150 N 8th Street) and there's a parking garage attached. I can send you directions if you need them.

    Directions...

    Piper Pub & Grill is on the 2nd floor at the corner of N 8th & W Main. The building fills the whole block & has a parking garage. Enter on W Main Street (note the 1-way arrows downtown). If you can park on the 2nd floor, then the entrance is right there- go through the glass doors & turn left after Gino's.

    Here's a map of the area...

    When and where did you all meet? I was down near the Piper at 5:30 this last saturday, but didn't see anyone photographic-ish inside. I'm a bit young too, so I was skeptic on going in...

    We should arrange another meet next weekend, perhaps?

    I don't know what the other folks' schedules are, but I'm out of town this weekend. How about 1st Thursday? We try to get out for each one & maybe we could get together... Either that, or at least on Saturday (March 4).

    I dig the 1st Thursday idea. Those are always good times, especially with summer coming up.
