Bill Black and June Carbone Will Join Our Minneapolis Meetup Tomorrow, May 2!

Posted on by

Forgive me for being such a flake and not asking Bill Black (who is often in Bloomfield, Minnesota, since his wife June Carbone is a professor at the law school at the University of Minnesota, earlier if they could join our meetup tomorrow. But all things conspire together and they can join us.

Bill and June will stop by our Minneapolis meetup tomorrow on the early side (June has a board meeting in the evening) so if you are in the area, I hope you can stop by to meet them!


4:30 PM to 7:00 PM (we may go later…I’m staying hard by so we could decamp to the hotel lobby bar)
Thursday May 2, 2019

Gray Fox Coffee & Wine
801 S Marquette Ave
Minneapolis, MN 55402

Map below for those of you who like maps, but organizer Katy VERY MUCH wants attendees to RSVP on her SurveyMonkey form, which also has venue and public transportation details.

Katy our organizer warns parking in the building is pricey before 5:00 PM, so plan accordingly.

Hope to see you soon!

    Bill Black is going to turn up? There wouldn’t happen to be a teleportation pad at the Gray Fox Coffee & Wine, would there?

    Bill Black? How fortunate!

    He is someone whose work I admire, and the #1 person I would like to see beside Bernie in some capacity when he becomes POTUS. *positive thinking*…*positive thinking*…*positive thinking*…

    It sounds like it will be an especially great meetup.

    Sounds great! Could you STREAM it? Is there an App for that? How does that work?

    Say hi from me; enjoyed watching some 2014 World Cup games in Volterra with those two expert players. And ask Professor Carbone what she thinks a Federal Jobs Guarantee program would do for American families.

  5. False Solace

    Truly wish I could attend. I work too late during the week to do much on weekdays, plus traffic into MPLS during rush hour no thanks, plus dealing with the aftereffects of a flooded basement this week. With you in spirit, alas :)

    I never minded my previous comment because it was too personal to me.

    But I think this bit needs to be said:

    Dear Local Organizers of NC meetups,

    For the love of dawg, you are aware of the issue around CASHLESS establishments if you regularly read NC. Don’t organize said events at cashless establishment without warning people who might wish to attend and can’t pay for anything because they only have cash. Please don’t suggest that I ask a stranger to charge on my behalf and give them my cash. I was already humiliated enough for one outing.

      Hmm…haven’t been to a meetup but I have to agree that this would have been a frustrating experience.

        I’d like to amended my comment a bit.

        I only now clicked on the survey monkey link. I see that the organizers did warn. Kudos.

        I never checked that because I hadn’t planned to attend. My schedule opened up at the very last minute so I just showed up after spending the day outside. I was hungry, parched and tired. I got blindsided.

        Even if I had know that strangers were willing to charge on my behalf via the form ahead of time (the irony of my comment does not escape me), that’s still humiliating. If the organizers don’t understand why, then I’m sorry.

        It did look like a lovely turnout and space.
