I'll be out in Mountain View again next week. Last month's tech meetup was a lot of fun - we had about 30 people show up and almost everyone enjoyed free cocktails for 2-3 hours. Alper suggested the Tied House, which looks perfect. Waddya think - 6:00 next Wednesday night?
What is a tech meetup? It's a user group meeting w/o the meeting part. You go straight to the bar, grab some drinks, maybe some dinner, and talk tech.
