    Will some things will be on video life? I can give you Zoom for a quick video chat for more Q&A if you are into that? I can't promise you that will be wearing a shirt.

    Just an idea - but what if we just met at canjam? We could chip in for a room / space at the hotel for us to listen to each other's gear + hangout / whatever. Those of us who want to "see more stuff" could break away for a bit to attend canjam as well.

    Only real downside I can think of is for those with concerns about covid - canjam is obviously much more human exposure vs a few people on sbaf renting a room elsewhere. Or if someone was just really opposed to giving headfi or marriott any amount of money.

    Yeah I am down for whatever we decide! Only issue for me is I will be working CanJam and then probably will be pulled a million different ways in the evenings. I don't mind bringing my gear and letting people use it as I trust and expect it will be fine in one of the rooms for the weekend.

    Personally would like to meet up with a small group of us and we can have a chill time with us. What me and a group of friends did last month was we planned on throwing a little get together with a group of us for a weekend in Ohio, rented and Airbnb, split the costs and kept it relatively chill with our group.

    Only issue that arose was booking the Airbnb, the first booking got canceled since same city booking=flag for Airbnb host and they think you are renting their place to throw a party. And then the second issue was, our Airbnb host for the house we booked thought it was suspicious we moved in so many boxes, thought we were throwing a party or selling stuff out of her house. Eventually explained that it was just a bunch of nerds that came out for a headphone meet.

    We're all set for 8/27 at WeWork Pasadena for those who want to sign up. You'll need to download the WeWork On Demand app, set up an account, and pay the access fee (sorry!). The Location is 117 E Colorado Blvd. I wanted to book a spot with a flat rate but this seemed to be the best option so far. I won't be in town for CanJam this year but I encourage a meet without me then too!

    Parking is $15 apparently so we are thinking of parking near Ev's place in the street then carpooling to the place in 1-2 cars.

    ping me or Ev if you guys have any questions!

    ^ wouldn't even be mad at 2 hours of "the adventures of a headphone salesman" and 5 minutes of actual listening.

    Depending on how work goes, I'll try to be there a bit after lunch. I've posted potential gear I can bring in the discord.

    I believe @Jh4db536 is also there. Maybe touch base with him? I think he's on the 3rd floor right now trying to find a spot. Let me invite you to ETA discord since we have a channel for the meet
