Bay Area (NorCal) Mechanical Keyboard Meetup November 10th 2018

Bay Area Mechanical Keyboard Meetup 2018


Hello friends!

It’s about that time of year again where we get to look forward to the Bay Area Mechanical Keyboard Meetup! As of today, I can officially say I have a date and location for this meetup. Below are the simple details of the meetup if you want to see them in a pinch:


What: Bay Area Mechanical Keyboard Meetup Fall 2018
Where: Mosaic, 211 S 1st St, San Jose, CA 95113
When: Saturday November 10th 2018; 10am-5pm
Why: To share, discuss, and learn more about different aspects of our hobby and to allow us to socialize with one another

Air Travel: The Nearest Airport is San Jose International Airport
Parking: There is parking at the venue as well as street parking around the area. A recommended parking map from the Venue will be posted here as well.


So I wanted to try something different with this meetup and I’m hoping it can work out with this venue in mind. I have decided to rent out the outdoor section for the meetup. The weather in the area in November should be nice and cool, which will be a nice change. The outdoor area should be able to hold the expected carrying capacity of the event. Last year we had approximately 450 attendees, but of course not all 450 are there at the same time.

At the meetup we will be providing coffee, water, and light appetizers for all attendees. The venue will also have a full lunch menu which I highly encourage everyone check out! The location is approximately 15 minutes from the airport (probably between 25-45 depending on traffic).


Planning on attending?

Please fill out this form so I have a good idea of overall attendance numbers. Thanks!

I’m going to have to figure out how to make this happen. I’ll be in Monterey that weekend with family. “Hey we need some ice, be back in a few hours.”

Yay. I’ll have lots of stuff to show off, as this is thankfully a meetup I don’t have to reach via an airplane. :slight_smile:


Just here to cry that the one day I can’t make it (cross country regional championships), was the one day that Huey said wouldn’t be the most convenient, and here we are :frowning:

Is there any chance someone is carpooling from Berkeley and has room for 2? :open_mouth:

@TaehaTypes Mr. Sleeves will be there?
