Come Shoot the Breeze, Have a Cup of Tea, With Me and Thong Le of WRF Capital
The news is starting to wind down as we head into the holiday season, so that can only mean one thing—it’s time to shoot the breeze at a special holiday edition of “Xconomy Meetup.”
Here’s the idea. In between our fancy-pants productions where we sell tickets, like “Biotech’s Back in Seattle” and “Computing in the Age of the $1,000 Genome,” sometimes we do free and open events in which we invite readers to come chat about the local innovation scene in a laid-back environment.
This time, I’d like to invite you to come by to hang out with me and Thong Le, the managing director of WRF Capital. We’re going to meet from 4 pm to 6 pm on Thursday, December 23 at Miro Tea, 5405 Ballard Ave NW in Seattle. Thong and his wife Jeannie started this tea shop three years ago, so he ought to know what the best holiday beverages and snacks are on the menu. I figure it’s a good setting to celebrate the wondrous arrival of this thing some people call “down time.” We’ll reflect back on the big news of 2010 and think about the year ahead.
If you can get away from the office or the lab to join us, please send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make sure we have enough chairs set aside. See you Thursday afternoon.
