1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    We will be meeting at an SF favorite, the Elks Lodge near Union Square.
    All Style Forum members and guests are welcome. As an added incentive
    to attend and enjoy the comraderie, there will be a Pisco* tasting at the Lodge!
    Dinner to follow in the area for those who are interested.

    The Elks Lodge is on the third floor of the Kensington Hotel at 450 Post street.
    The door will be closed and locked, so you will need to ring for admittance.
    Once you are in, if you have any trouble locating the Styleforum group, ask
    at the bar for Blake. He will sign you in as a guest.

    *http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pisco
    (attendees who are fluent in Quecha and/or Aymara
    will be entitled to extra drinks)

    Very possibly. It is well known that the Elks does not limit itself to
    arboreal ruminants. I will verify whether this Lodge is equipt with
    a marine mammal tank.

    Just saw this. Thursdays are usually difficult for me, but I'll try. I haven't had Pisco since...two meetups ago.

    Perhaps Friday would be better? What are everyone's thoughts?

    Sorry to hear that. However, it is well known among Andean peoples that Pisco
    does wonders for cold symptoms and encourages rest. So you might wish
    to reconsider. In any case, Feel better!

    Indeed. Mainly, I am not interested in infecting the rest of you with whatever I caught. I'll go home and curl up with some chicken soup and a nice rye. Too bad, I like the ELks, it's a nice place to visit, and I was looking forward to Hops and Hominy.
