Here’s an article that appeared in Arl Now today about the future of our current meeting venue, the Artisphere. Briefly, the space is likely to close Mondays and Tuesdays and open later in the day. So far, that doesn’t sound like it will cause any problems for us. I really hope they are able to stay open for the long term. It’s sad that their restaurant is closed, but hopefully they’ll find someone who can open a more inspiring restaurant there in the future. I’d love to see the venue used by one of DC’s successful food trucks, for instance. How cool would that be? 🙂

Oh no! Is MoWiTy cursed? The cafe at the Artisphere will close on Wednesday. I’m not sure if this means Wednesday is the last day it’s open or the first day it’s closed. You may want to hit up Chipotle or wherever before or during the meeting instead. Also, if you’re a few minutes early, there’s a great sandwich shop that closes at 7PM and is accessible through the lobby of the Artisphere building.
So that no one has to miss out due to the Thanksgiving holiday, our Monkeys with Typewriters meeting will be on Monday, November 21 next week! We’ll meet from 7PM-10PM at the Artisphere as usual.
Our Wednesday night meeting is going well and it’s nice and quiet here at the Artisphere. I even got a chance to ride the chicken! Here is proof:
Edit to add: Stephanie also had a victorious ride on the mechanical poultry!
Our calendar is changing once again — Tuesday night is salsa night at the Artisphere and it’s a little loud for writing. We’re going to try Wednesday this week. As usual, we’re meeting from 7-10PM in the Town Hall of the Artisphere. We have been meeting on the level that’s up the escalator from the front desk, but if it’s loud for some reason, we might try moving to the level up the stairs from there.
See you on Wednesday!
Since next Monday is Halloween and next Tuesday is the first day of NaNoWriMo, we’ve decided to move the meeting from Monday 10/31 to Tuesday 11/1.
Also, it turns out that the restaurant at our current venue is closed on Mondays. If Tuesday works out next week, we may decide to reschedule MoWiTy to Tuesdays. How does everyone feel about this?
I hope you guys are pumped for NaNoWriMo! Or, if you’re not doing NaNoWriMo, come along, watch the November madness ensue, and get a little writing done while you’re at it!
The Soundry is currently closed and we don’t know when or if this awesome venue will reopen. In the meantime, us monkeys still need to type! We’ll currently be meeting in the Town Hall of the Artisphere in Rosslyn, VA. The venue has tables, chairs, couches, wifi,
food, coffee and beer(Update, 10/24, 9PM: It turns out that the restaurant is closed on Monday nights, but we might reschedule the meetings for Tuesdays). You should come!
