You love to take stuff apart. The thrill of discovery drives you to do it. You can see what's broken and somehow know how to fix it. Professionally educated, self-taught, or a little of both; you are a hacker, a dreamer, a hobbyist, an inventor, a maker, and even a scientist.
Discussions and meetup topics will mostly center around the maker community, basic electronics, the Raspberry Pi, the Arduino, IoT, software, programming, Sci-Fi, and hacking...but will not be limited to such. We can't wait to meet you!

Come learn how to pick locks with us! We'll walk you through the basics and help you understand how locks only keep honest people out and why you should avoid cheap padlocks to keep your things secure.
Lockpicking usually gets a bad rap, congering images of criminals and illicit activity. We're here to show you that picking locks can be a fun and educational (and legal!) hobby!
Calling all crafters! Grab your needles, hooks, yarn, and thread, and join us for an evening with friends who knit, embroider, or crochet. Wine is usually available (for those 21+, obviously), but partaking is not a requirement.
