Happy November!

This month’s Tech Tuesday falls two days before Thanksgiving, and who wants to pay attention to speakers and take notes and ask questions and tweet and, and, and, two days before Thanksgiving? Not us, and we’re guessing probably not most of you.

As such, we’re going to do this Tech Tuesday (almost) completely different than usual: We’re throwing you a little holiday party to say thank you for 11 months of supporting eBay Tech Tuesdays. We launched this Meetup in January, and now, just over 11 months later, we’ve had ten great evenings, and we’re 690 members strong. Who woulda thunk it?!

Please join us on November 24th for appetizers, treats, holiday beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, beer, wine, and a local jazz trio playing some of your favorite holiday (and non-holiday) music.

Although this event is purely social, in the spirit of the Season - and also Tech Tuesdays - we’ve asked Oregon Food Bank and Free Geek to join us. Both of these non-profits will be on hand to share what they do and accept donations.

Oregon Food Bank will be accepting food donations as well as monetary donations. Their most wanted foods are: Canned meats; canned or boxed meals; peanut butter and other nut butters; canned or dried beans and peas; pasta, rice, cereal (whole grain preferred); canned fruits and vegetables; shelf-stable milk; cooking oil; 100% fruit and vegetable juice (canned, plastic, or boxed).

Free Geek will also be accepting donations of stuff and things, as well as money. We say "stuff and things", because they accept nearly everything that plugs into a computer or uses electricity. Smart phones, tablets, e-readers, video game systems, printers (including extra ink and toner), scanners, routers, digital cameras, PDAs, cell phones, old gadgets…. The list goes on and on. Even if it doesn’t work, they’ll take it. There are a few things they won’t take, though. Click here for that info.

We look forward to celebrating you all and ringing in the holidays. We hope you'll join us!

** As usual doors open at 6pm and the event runs until 8pm. The exterior lobby doors lock at 7pm, but someone will be available to let you.
