Yesterday evening Gene and I attended another reddit Aurora meetup! As part of making the subreddit more active, I had suggested and orchestrated a dinner meetup. The goal is to have it monthly where we go to a different local restaurant. The first one was a success and I hope will lead to many more. This month we went to Guadalajara, a Mexican restaurant based in Colorado.
Four other people showed up! Granted, I had met them all before, but I will take what I can get. I was hoping for some new faces, but perhaps it just wasn’t the right night or people didn’t end up seeing the post. That’s what happens when your subreddit isn’t very active or popular. But we’re working on it.
I had fun and enjoyed a delicious meal. You know, it’s nice that I’m starting to get a group of friends here and that I’ve done it all on my own. Well, I had reddit’s help, but, I didn’t meet these people through anyone else. I think that’s an accomplishment. It’s also nice to just go out once in a while and see people. I love Gene very much but I need to see and speak with others on occasion. ;P
Next month we’re gonna go to a Chinese restaurant. Oh how I hope this will spark our subreddit to be more active. That would be so awesome.
