Sacramento Geek Dinner

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 17 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

If you’re in Sacramento and watch with envy as those Bay Area snobs hold their blogger/geek/tech dinners, then be green no longer. Scott Hildebrand and I are organizing the first of many Sacramento area geek dinners.

When: Thursday, March 16th 2006 at 7:00PM

Where: Woodstock’s Pizza in Davis, CA

Is the March 16 Thursday geek dinner really happening? It would be a long drive for me, so does this place have really excellent pizza or something else to recommend it?

Yes it's really happening. The pizza is good but maybe not as good as Round Table. WiFi is free also but I don't know how many people are going to actually use it. Davis is a good place for Sacramento people, and also good for any UC Davis students who might perhaps not have a car and would like to come. It's also not THAT far from the Bay Area.

Hi Adam, Couldn't make it tonight but I would be interested in other gatherings. Especially if they are a little closer in. Is lunch ever a possibility? Perhaps at Bella Bru at Arden and Fair Oaks Blvd?
