Next Meetup Fri, June 11 @ 5p.m.

We’re swicthing up the six-week cycle and making it five. . .six weeks conflicts with a puppy I have staying and my house-mate will be preoccupied with guests he has visiting so it’s five. Live with it. πŸ˜‰

Picking Bay Street Biergarten again since I’ve had great experiences there re: face-diapers and they have a pretty guuud parking situation.

Hope to see y’all there! Here’s the link on the NAMU website for RSVPs.

Please join me and several visiting producers on Friday, May 7 at the Rooftop Bar of the Vendue Hotel. We’ll be there from 5p.Β

Reasonably-priced parking available at Cumberland and Concord. . .well, reasonable to me after living in downtown Chicago for so many years.

Hope to see y’all there! Here’sΒ the link on the NAMU siteΒ to RSVP.

Wheel of Topics Ep 7 with Andrew Horowitz

I was asked to join Wheel of Topics again – I am a decent laugh track if y’all need one. πŸ˜‰

The star of the show was Andrew Horowitz. . .but of course nothing in this episode should be considered investment advice.

Short-Notice Meetup Sunday April 11 @ 4p

Yet another producer is doing a road-trip and swinging through Charleston soon.

She was born here, but her parents moved when she was an infant and she’s never been back so she’s including it on a cross-country trip she’s taking this month and next.

We will be meeting at Bay Street Biergarten at 4p on Sunday April 11. Please join us if you can!

Here’s her path/story etc: http://www.sunisaysso.com/sunis-odyssey-2021.html

Update: it’s now live on the NAMU site so you can RSVP if you like.

TYFYC!

Tom Blomquist Book Signing Mar 11 4p-7p

ITM y’all! My friend Tom published his second book recently and is having a book-signing next Thursday at Bay Street Biergarten from 4-7p.

If you were at the meet-shoot in November, you met him. πŸ™‚ He wrote the “Swamp Thing” episode that starred Adam. He did a lot of other Hollyweird stuff, but that’s of course how I think of him.

It’s a joint signing with Ron Ward who seems like a cool guy to meet as well. He’s the former Academy Director for the US Probation Academy at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.

I will hopefully be able to make it. I haven’t seen Tom or his wife since Thanksgiving.

Here are their books in case you’re interested:

Ron Ward – The Dirty Side of Leadership: https://www.amazon.com/Dirty-Side-Leadership-Management-Development/dp/1641117435
