    Sorry that I've been MIA for the last few days, I've had some urgent family matters come up including the birth of my brother's first child (yay!) and a major basement flooding all in the same week. I'm glad to see that someone recommended JoJo's in Hartford. That was definitely the first place that came to mind for me, but wasn't sure if the group would approve. I think it may be coffee only, with perhaps some light snacks, but I haven't been there in a while. It came to mind for me, because the atmosphere is definitely low key and would be great for a group meeting such as this. The upside is that the part of Hartford in which it's located is full of restaurants so if folks got hungry we could always walk an extremely short distance to something yummy.

    I hope JoJo's is good for everyone. The parking in this part of town is pretty good, too. I'll plan on seeing you all there on Sunday. Noon, right?

    I'm not sure where the breakdown has occurred regarding this pen meet-up. I have had this date on my calendar for a few weeks now and am still willing to meet anyone who is interested in showing up. If I don't see any affirmative responses to this thread this evening, then I will plan on NOT showing, but just say the word and I'm happy to meet you there.

    I think, generally, weekends are too short. =)
    I always need one more day to get stuff done. Keep in mind that this is also a holiday weekend, and folks have vacations and BBQs and what have you and the numbers might not be as big as a "regular" weekend. That being said, anyone who feels like meeting in downtown Hartford to talk pens and inks and maybe exchange some ink samples, I'm happy to meet you. Just respond to the thread, otherwise, I will assume that it's off and and take a long bike ride in the woods.

    I am definitely open to that! I'll pencil it in.
    It sounds like JoJo's was a good fit for most, so let's tentatively schedule it for that location.
    Will, if you need a ride, I can probably give you one. =)

    Did you all end up meeting?

    Just saw the thread and would like to throw my hat in the ring for future events, should they be happening. I am up in Amherst, MA, but more than willing to head down to Hartford (ish) in the future.

    I don't think the meeting took place, but I wasn't able to attend so I don't know.
